Caron Joy Press

Caron Joy Press is a collection of some past photos from the line. Caron Joy started designing and manufacturing women’s separates in the late 80’s in California. Furthermore, her degree and experience in Interior Design blended with her passion for fashion. Thus, it led her to market items she was making for the fashion industry. The first collections were cotton knit separates influenced by Japanese fashions Caron had seen on a trip to Japan. Contemporary Designers  Issey Miyake, Rei Kawakubo, and Yohji Yamamoto were creating new shapes and a ease that reflected California’s casual way of living. In combination with the exciting textiles she saw in Italy at the time, she created her own interpretations for the California lifestyle . 

The collections continued to grow with innovative leggings and unitards. Additionally,  lace separates inspired by rock fashion influences of Madonna and Cindi Lauper. Easy dresses with gorgeous floral prints led the next trend. Boho Chic really started in the 80’s and continued to trend repeatedly. 

Thereafter, it seemed a natural to develop a girls clothing line .Using fluid fabrics with ruffles on seam lines and mixing of special prints Caron Joy became known for girls dresses taking on a new twist. Even dresses for special occasions became more casual using fluid stretch poly fabrics and prints with heat pressed rhinestones. Additionally, there was a softness and young maturity.. Caron Joy developed hand knit sweaters, and later imported cashmere sweaters and robes. Fleece lined leggings, active wear  and trendy items are currently available. Caron Joy press reflects some images retained over the years.  For more information on Caron Joy Press contact
