Recently, as I was looking through my emails, I noticed a trunkshow alert for a designer by the name of Katie Ermilio. Why have I not heard of this young woman? Well obviously I've been living under a rock to have not noticed her designs, because they are breathtaking. Ermilio's F/W 2013 is filled with tailored mixed separates and stunning dresses made for red carpet moments. Intrigued by her designs, I then read her bio, and two interesting things popped out at me: 1. Katie's grandfather was the designer of the iconic green jacket awarded for winning The Masters Tournament. 2. Her grandfather was the personal clothier to Grace Kelly.
Ermilio has also created a capsule collection for Barneys and it's easy to see that the collection has a very elegant lady like feel with a youthful energy. The collection includes several evening looks in bright colors and fashion-forward silhouettes. My favorite pieces are the Two-Tone Mermaid Gown and the Peplum Hem Skirt.
I would love to see Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Amanda Seyfried and Keira Knightley wear any one of these looks from the F/W 2013 collection on the red carpet.
What do you think of Katie Ermilio's designs?
Visit Moda Operandi for the Katie Ermilio Trunkshow. Going on now through April 3, 2013 at 11 PM EDT.
