Carasan, mi Corazon

A mother-daughter design duo? We’ve seen it before. But a mother-daughter knit couture design duo; be still our hearts!

We don’t usually do this, but we do spend a lot of time drooling over couture and when we find a crossover for crafting, we absolutely must make the introduction. So, meet Carasan. When 18 year old daughter Cassandra couldn’t find a job in her new college town (NYC, so quelle surprise), she asked her mother to go into business with her.
Their inspiration ranges from Erte to Fortuny and according to their statement, “Carasan epitomizes today's young American Couture, transcending time with its authentic creations and looking back into history for inspiration, not just for their designs, but also how we all impact the world in which we live forever.” Sure it’s couture, but it sounds suspiciously crafty, yes?

Thanks to FashionIndie for pointing us toward Carasan, and look for an upcoming interview with the duo on Angel Lust PR.

Now let’s go back to drooling…If you don't have a myspace account to go check out the pics, it's worth getting one.



Digg!
