Erickson Beamon Spring 2013
Erickson BeamonSpring 2013 was held in the Box at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. Their collection truly was a treasure box of rare designs and accessories. Holding true to their tradition, Slinky, silky floor-length slip dresses in pretty pastels were shown alongside woven body-con frocks. Karen Erickson and Vicki Beamon’s newly expanded clothing line is just as whimsical as theirfamous over the top glamorous chunky, baubly jewels.
The Fashion Duo, Karen Erickson and Vicki Beamonbuilt their business empire
on jewelry. They have since expanded into ready-to-wear, showing their second collection with an installation a Mercedes Benz in Lincoln Center in the Box.
The designers created a spectacular tableau vivant of models and fashion muses such as Chicago boutique owner Ikram Goldman, DJ and actress Becka Diamond, and socialite and beauty biz entrepreneur Julie Macklowe wearing their designs in silk, lace and crystal.
During our interview Karen Erickson revealed the inspiration came from William Klein's 1966 cult film, "Who Are You, Polly Maggoo?," a satirical sendup of the fashion industry.
