Runway Report: Outerwear + Spring Sneak Peek

Stella Carakasi showed her Fall/Winter 2015 and glimpses of her Spring/Summer 2016 collections at San Francisco Fashion Week™ 2015. The sold-out event was received by a sparkling crowd of Bay Area fashion enthusiasts.

The vibe on the runway from Stella was put-together polish, mixed with unique fabric combinations and architectural silhouettes. Models and onlookers gushed, “I want to take this home, NOW.”

The word INTENTION has been a large part of Stella’s design process. Stella reflects, “The collection is a result from an extensive study of the various, realistic female shapes. It is not about age, nor about body type but instead we celebrate what is and accept it as perfect, beautiful and unique. The designs are a result of the profound love for experimentation with exclusive materials, often realized in natural and organic fibers with the soft hued colors of nature. This collection is aimed at those who love freedom, self-expression and who are not afraid of breaking preconceived molds.”

Fall fashion is here! Despite balmy summer temperatures last weekend, excited fashionistas congregated at the Stella Studio on Friday night where Stella Carakasi presented The Fall Style Event in partnership with The Rich Life (on a budget), and in celebration of San Francisco Fashion Week. Collaborators in the event included Fashion Over Fifty, Daisy Tribe, jewelry designer Janet Harrer, and Style Equation Magazine. The designer presented a private show to bloggers and local fans who mingled and noshed on delightful treats from Whole Foods Market and grooved to cool beats provided by DJ Rimarkable.

San Francisco Fashion Week – Celebrate Local!

We’ve had so much fun participating in San Francisco Fashion Week this year. This weeklong event truly represents what is unique about the SF Bay Area and Silicon Valley. It has been wonderful to meet so many creative people that are challenging the status quo, taking risks, and living their dreams out loud!

“We love being an SF Bay Area company. This is a special place where creativity, fashion, technology and entrepreneurialism come together in a unique way. We are proud to support SFFAMA to bring greater visibility to the creative and emerging talents here,” says Stella.
