Boston based EMERSON has been showing its collections at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week for several seasons and this cool women’s wear line is gaining a following with celebrities like Paula Abdul, sitting in the front row at the show. We went backstage before the Spring 2013 show to talk to Jackie Fraser-Swan about her newest collection.
Designer Jackie Fraser-Swan has tapped her creativity to produce consistent collections of beautiful clothes that speak to the modern woman. The EMERSON look meshes femininity with an edgy strength that makes this label stand out.
For EMERSON Spring 2013, Jackie Fraser-Swan took her inspiration from 1970’s Horror Films, with her biggest inspiration being the movie “Carrie”. The 70’s influence was very evident in the silhouettes and fabrics, but in a modern way that looks right for now. While there was plenty of black and white in the collection, there were also beautiful prints and pops of color like a bright blue and a vibrant red.
With such an unexpected inspiration, the EMERSON Spring 2013 is a fun very wearable collection and the show was packed with surprises from the beginning to the end!
