The Clothes: 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 (and covetable!) as their chunky, baubly jewels.
The Hair & Makeup: Messy, wavy mermaid hair and waist-length braids were paired with an ultra-exaggerated dual-winged cat eye, which was split with thick white eyeliner.
The Soundtrack: Airy, eerie music curated by UFO 2012 Collective echoed throughout the space.
The Vibe: Erickson Beamon presentations are well known for being quite quirky affairs (remember last year’s swanky 20s shindig?), so their use of furniture dollies and construction scaffolding as set props was just as crazy as it was clever.
The Front Row: Now here’s where it gets interesting: There was a VIP section dubbed ‘The Audience’ seated in the midst of the presentation—literally. Arden Wohl, Tara Subkoff, Marla Maples, China Chow, Becka Diamond, Stacy Engman, and many more were seen sitting pretty on scaffolding while being encircled by models perched on dollies (who were wheeled around the room by buff butlers wearing tuxedos and Chuck Taylors!).
