Style 360  NY Fashion Week Spring 2009

Fashion Ledge - Style 360
Caravan By Style 360 Spring 2009

One show. Seven designers. Tide Total Care was there to inspire several runway looks and to tell us that fashion can be washable and washables can be fashion. Conair was there, too, showcasing their products including the Infiniti Nano Silver Tourmaline Ceramic Straightener. But our attention was focused on the runway when Shontelle—a gorgeous and talented Bajan singer—kicked off the Caravan show with an incredible performance of her new single "T-shirt." Shontelle also walked in the show as did Australian singer Delta Goodrem and Legally Blonde's Laura Bell Bundy (and her cute Schmancy purses—www.schmancypurses.com).

Four looks from gr.dano were first down the runway. We were especially taken by the Nida dress with its side-draped pockets and cowl-neck Osaka vest.

Shontelle looked amazing in travel jersey's lapis blue jersey sun suit and tangerine cellophane anorak but we also liked the easy to wear striped crop top and pants combo worn by Yosuzi.

Jocelyn did wonders with nylon from the white ripstop shawl to the yellow motorcycle jacket and tangerine Kimono. We loved them all.

It was hard to choose a favorite from Ronan Chen beautiful-in-blue dresses but if forced, we'd have to go with the third look for its draping and the graceful way it moved.

We loved the prints in the IVANAhelsinki collection, especially the last look with its finely pleated skirt.

Rock the Vote by Sociology definitely rocked the runway with fun (and oh-so-relevant t-shirts) and charming, smiling models.

Caravan closed the show with a half dozen looks including a pretty pink sundress in Vietnamese silk and, our favorite, the Global Ball Gown with its perfectly fitted bustier top and sweeping black skirt.

One show. Seven designers. Seven points of view. And looks that will take you from the beach to the ballroom.
