Caravan has made quite a name for itself; it is the little RV that could. Caravan literally started out as a gypsy caravan. RVs, stocked with designer garb, would roam the streets of Manhattan stopping at duly appointed times to show their threads to fashionistas who were "in on the inside." According to the Caravan website: "In 2006 Caravan opened our first brick and mortar location at 2 Great Jones Street in Noho. Caravan on Great Jones is a social shopping space. It is a place where people can shop, learn about new designers as well as listen to some fun music and work with our professional clothing stylists. More then a retail store, instead a showroom of sorts with a lounge area, DJ booth, and designer showcase."
Caravan showed these hot lines during Style 360 Fashion Week: By Malenen Birger; Fred Perry; IRO; J. Lindeberg; Kim Foley; Loomstate; Steelo; Sretsis; Vivienne Westwood; and WALTER. It was a fun show filled with truly accessible but fashionable clothing; this caravan is definitely moving up the road to fashion history.
