NYFW: Emerson by Jackie Fraser-Swan


After last weeks live Office Hours, Kelly Cutrone invited everyone to the Emerson by Jackie Fraser-Swan show to be a part of her "Twitter Team," and to experience some of the prep that goes into putting on a show during Fashion Week. Having worked many a show in the past, it was such a dream and so much fun to be on the opposite side of things. The night included checking out the backstage area, the pre-show run-through, the hospitality lounge, and of course, the show itself.
The music (selected by Jackie Fraser-Swan) fit the vibe of the collection perfectly and included a few of my favorite things: leather, textured pieces, fun dress and maxis, and a healthy dose of shimmer. (You can see the entire collection here.) It's no wonder Natasha Bedingfield chose a piece from the Spring 2013 collection to wear to the Grammys last night.

Besides being an incredibly talented designer (and great granddaughter of poet Ralph Waldo Emerson,) Jackie is an avid lover of Chanel and mom of four beautiful, little girls. Some of the sweetest moments of the show included her daughters, from their front row seats to walking the runway with their mom at the end. Overall, I couldn't ask for a better first NYFW experience.
