Cars of Character Meet Couture at Warner Bros Studios - Fashion and Design Meets Automotive at AutoDesignO Cars of Character

AutoDesignO held their "Cars Of Character" extravaganza recently on the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank, CA, October 21, 2014 to rave reviews. AutoDesignO (the Automotive Design Organization) calls itself "a professional association, which is improving access to people, essential information, as well as a culture exchange within the automotive design profession, and beyond the studio walls."

Couture fashions and models made the event truly sparkle. With over 22 years of experience in the fashion industry (BCBG, NBC Fashion Star, and Samsung), Charmaine J. Rodriguez was on hand showcasing her new label -- Charmaine Joie Couture. Charmaine is a couture dress designer with influences that range from the fashion world to the automotive universe. A dress or gown was designed exclusively for each automobile.
