Like any little girl, Christina Carathanassis loved to dress up. But for Christina, this childhood stage grew into a full-blown fashion obsession that has shaped her entire life.

Her mother Ro (Mammabelle) explains, “When Christina was five years old, she gave me styling advice … and I actually listened to her! She has always had this amazing sixth sense of what looks good on everyone.”
Naturally, in high school and college, Christina’s closet was often raided by her friends and family. She always knew that her closet had a special draw; it always held the right clothes and Christina proudly wore the label of the “go-to-girl” for fashion and shopping advice.

Growing up in Bergen County, New Jersey (a short 15 minute ride into the Big Apple),  a career in beauty and fashion was a natural choice. Post college, Christina quickly climbed the ranks as a Manhattan-based publicist working for luxury clients in beauty and fashion. It was there she was entrenched in red carpet, star-studded fashion events such  (The Academy Awards, The Emmy Awards and Fashion Week NY, LA, Miami, Milan, Paris). In the midst of all the celebrity-driven, fashion hype and glamour, Christina knew she too had a special talent and  had been sitting on the sidelines for long enough.

In 2004, Christina’s brainchild Christabelle’s Closet Boutique Christina Carathanassis of Christabelle's Closet The Blogopened her online doors bursting with designer treasures and designer duds, culled from Manhattan socialites, LA’s famous faces and high-powered fashion and beauty elite. And, like any discriminating stylist, Christina handpicks only the best to be housed in Christabelle’s Closet (after all, it is her namesake). This Closet was designed to hold only the most pristine, authentic designer bargains – to be sold at deliciously low prices. “Real fashion divas strike while the iron is hot,” states Carathanassis. “When you see something – buy it.  I guarantee it will be gone in a blink”.

Visiting this e-commerce site is truly a rewarding experience; it’s a peek inside an amazing, hand-selected vault of designer finds.
In October of 2013, Christabelle’s Closet got a face lift and relaunched as Christabelle’s Closet Style Destination – where she takes shopping, dressing and editorial content to a whole new level of fashion fun.

Christina currently resides in NYC’s Upper West Side, where she sleeps, breathes and lives fashion & beauty… along with a bevy of her on-trend friends and her (exceptionally dressed) boyfriend.

** In 2008, Christabelle’s Closet – The Blog was born. Since then, privileged readers get the ins-outs/hots-nots/cool-not so much on every topic…from Christina herself. Fashion, Beauty, Travel, Food, Wine and more – she has her finger on the pulse of all the trends and products you need to follow. **
