PHOTOGRAPHS COURTESY OF CARAMENTE CLOTHING LINE
Alright, so a few weekends ago I was personally invited to attend an intimate photoshoot in Delaware for Caramente Clothing. Of course I was über excited, especially since the CEO and fashion designer behind the entire line, Brianna Prescott, personally invited me. Brianna is a native of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and was nicknamed 'Caramente', which was given to her by her Nonno (grandfather in Italian), so in 2007 she used that nickname to name her brand. The whole Caramente team are all under 24 years old and are learning the fashion business hands-on while still trying to fulfill their dreams.
When I got there she informed me that they never invite outside media or people during there shoots, so I was grateful to be there. While I was there, I met the Marketing Director, Alicia Nace, and photographer Sean Dackermann. Sean is an awesome photographer who currently does photos for eveything from blogs to concerts, but he told me he hopes to do major editorial work in the future. I also met models Josh Gerczak and Sophie Reed, who you see above. Oh and ladies, Josh is an actor who looks just like Ryan Gosling! All in all, everyone was so kind I wanted to bundle them all up and bring them back to Jersey with me!
Anyway, the clothes I was seeing were casual, urban and cool all mixed up in t-shirts, jeans, denim jackets and tutus. Yes...I said tutus! I loved it! Caramente mainly produces young women’s apparel; however, it also focuses on creating one of a kind custom jean jackets, jeans, and vests for all. These jackets are produced the eco-friendly way with recycled jean material which Brianna spends hours reworking to express your own personal fashion sense.
