Emerson Fashion Week 2011 Show

From the Runway to Your Home: Emerson's Runway Show and Eskayel's Wallpapers

Boston-based designer Jackie Fraser-Swan, who shows her collection under the name Emerson — a reference to her middle name as well as the designer's famous distant relative, Ralph Waldo Emerson — just showed her first collection at the tents at Lincoln Center this morning in New York. A major talent, this emerging designer's Spring 2012 collection featured a predominantly black, white, and gray collection that paid homage to the '70s with its chic and sophisticated tie-dye prints. If you're interested in seeing the entire collection, you can watch a video of the Emerson Spring 2012 runway show on the label's site. I loved many of the pieces in the line, including this chic double-breasted, tie-dye jacket, which immediately reminded me of another favorite designer who works with interiors.

Brooklyn-based design studio Eskayel turns designer Shanan Campanaro's imagery from her paintings into incredible bespoke wall coverings, textiles, pillows, ceramics, and wallpaper, all of which are all locally sourced and fabricated in the northeastern United States. The design shown above, Splatter Spell Granite wallpaper ($5-$490) is one of the many wallpaper designs based on Shanan Campanaro's paintings. The wallpaper is a latex-based, nylon-reinforced paper, which is a green alternative to vinyl, and is available for residential and commercial use. I met Shanan when I was at ICFF this Spring and had the opportunity to check out many of Eskayel's products in person while chatting with the painter and designer. The shibori-like quality of the textiles and wallpapers is exquisite and a very close match to the fabrics used at the Emerson show.
