Erin Fetherston

Fashion Informer: "Do you believe in love at first sight?"
Erin Fetherston: "Yes; I'm living proof."

Her best friends are director Ellen von Unwerth and indie actress Zooey Deschanel. After three years of studying fashion at Parsons in Paris, she debuted at Paris Haute Couture in July 2005 with a fashion adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s Through The Looking Glass. So statuesque and beautiful, it was reported when she appeared to take a bow, editors assumed she was a model. After charming French critics, within one year of moving to New York, she won the prestigious Ecco Domani award, was nominated for a CFDA and had a collaboration with Target. Fashion designer Erin Fetherson lives a fantasy life.

"I love little girly baby-doll dresses. They're so feminine and romantic."

"I was a total drama child. I just loved creating the scene. Pieces that you make get entwined in their own plots."

Erin Fetherston embodies the free-spirited innocence of her clothes. She looks like an angel, with her white-blonde hair and wide-eyed smiles. Her influences are grounded in childhood and fantasy, reminiscing a trip through Japan's cherry orchards (spring 2010), Christmas Nutcrackers (fall 2009), or woodland nymphs (spring 2007). Through recently she has evolved from girly doll to a more sophisticated femininity, her clothes remain whimsical and romantic.

Erin Fetherston proves that fairy tales can come true.
