Fashion Week: EMERSON BY Jackie Fraser-Swan: Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2014

Designer Jackie Fraser-Swan returned to the tents for her fifth show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, presenting her Spring 2014 collection on September 8th at 9 pm at Lincoln Center. This season, Fraser-Swan imagined that "A group of punk rock kids crashed a private garden on the Upper East Side where the Ramones were playing a secret show ."

True to the signature aesthetic of the Emerson collection, Fraser-Swan mixes punk elements with the contrast of elegant femininity, the ultimate clash of two worlds. The "Emerson by JFS" girl is not afraid to be herself or stand out in a crowd, she is intelligent and can think for herself.  She is a leader, not a follower. As Fraser-Swan's distant relative Ralph Waldo Emerson believed: Non-Conformity, Positivity, and Self-Reliance.

The Spring 2014 collection features three custom designed prints: Garden Gate, Allium Flower Field and Painted Hounds Tooth. The Garden Gate is the main focal point of the collection inspiration and comes in both lightweight silk/cotton and a bottom weight silk crepe; styles include pleated dresses, a shift dress with exposed side zippers and two-way center back zipper, straight leg pant w/contrast side panels, a bomber jacket, and a gorgeous full length pleated gown w/a fuchsia satin face organza combo.
