EMERGING: Emerson by Jackie Fraser-Swan

Posted on by Icy Twan in LATEST | Comments Off on EMERGING: Emerson by Jackie Fraser-Swan

You have now entered the world of a designer’s collection that profoundly explores the punk and the polished realms of design—Emerson by Jackie Fraser-Swan.Emerson is here!! Relatively new to the New York fashion scene this 27 look collection has already collected noise. Jackie features modern tie-dyed prints, splattered motifs and with caged detail—distinctive, universal and fun.

 

The Spring/Summer 2012 Emerson collection is inspired by the contrast of darkness and light, says Fraser-Swan. “Life can throw us a curve ball from time to time,” she says, “but it’s up to us to decide whether to go down that road to darkness or to focus on the light at the end of the tunnel.”

Emerson is full of simple silhouettes in soft black, grey and white prints. To describe this line metaphorically: Grunge(punk) meets the Fifth Avenue socialite. It’s color story speaks in a soft whisper defined with dark detail. Edgy and polite is it’s mood. Very unique!

I feel Jackie Fraser-Swan has really done a exquisite job with this collection. I’m looking forward to more to come in the future from this designer!!
