EMERSON, a collection designed by Boston based Jackie Fraser-Swan, presented its third collection at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week last September. Fraser-Swan designed the collection to dress a clientele that likes to stand out and needs apparel for all of her daily tasks and events.
The EMERSON Spring 2012 Collection was inspired by “Light & Darkness”, giving it a color palate focused on white, black and grays with pops of bright color in the form of a bright cobalt blue and bright purple. Silhouettes were a mélange of classic shapes with a edgy rocker feel, giving the collection a feel of modernity. The stand out print was a black, white and gray abstract that gave the collection a depth and vibrancy. Stand out pieces included a sleek but feminine trench coat in the abstract print and a lace bubble skirt.
