Designer Jackie Fraser-Swan turned to her favorite music and colors for inspiration when creating her Fall 2014 Emerson collection. The designer believes in staying true to her design aesthetic and philosophy. She often makes most of her design decisions based on gut instincts. The wife and mother of 4 started her company in 2010. Since that time, she has been placed on fashion insiders radar.
This season she produced a collection of wearable, and VERY COOL, hardcore, but feminine punk clothes. Two unique prints were designed for the collection. The first was a plaid print in black, white, and lavender. The second print in navy, white, and grey was described as “the glass ceiling, ” by the designer. Jackie experimented with different fabrics and textures, to achieve the effect of “shatter glass” on dresses, tops, and skirts. Sheer sleeves on dresses and skirt hems add another flirty touch to plaid jumpers worn with Dr. Martens.
