New York Fashion Week Spring 2014: Emerson by Jackie Fraser-Swan

New York Fashion Week Spring 2014: Emerson by Jackie Fraser-Swan

A group of punk rock kids crashed a private garden on the Upper East Side where the Ramones were playing a secret show.

So goes the inspiration that sparked Emerson’s Spring 2014 collection. Designer, Jackie Fraser-Swan breathed life into this downtown-meets-uptown idea with her mix of designs and materials, which range between cotton, cashmere, leather and silk organza. The black, white and purple colour palette shows her punk influences, but overall the effect is brought uptown by a few green, pink and red highlights. Of her inspiration, Jackie said:

I often feel like I am caught in the middle of these two worlds… I work in the fashion industry, I adore Chanel and I am a suburban Mom of four – but I also love getting tattoos and going to punk shows whenever I can! I have been in love with punk/hardcore music since I was 15 years old, and that music has had a major impact on who I am and what I stand for.
