emma erickson is something of a fashion newcomer who recently graduated with a degree in fashion from the academy of art in san francisco, ca. newcomer though she may be, her résumé is already growing. she has interned with hervé léger and shown her designs in new york and omaha, ne. wowza!
her designs all have various degrees of cozy, modern, and feminine elements. i love how she uses layers in her work. layers seem to have become an important part of modern style (great news for us midwesterners), and they can add an origami-like structure to a look, as i think they do in emma's work. she also displays a lovely sensibility for color in her designs.
visit emma here—and watch for the opening of her online shop, hopefully coming soon...!
