Doc Martin combat boots stomped on to the brightly lit stage in tune to the loud upbeat music as the Emerson FW14 show began on February 7th in Lincoln Center. The theme of the show was "Break the Mold" and even featured a model wearing the slogan on a shirt. Designer Jackie Fraser-Swan’s Emerson collection portrays the perfect combination of rock meets romance that is her brand’s signature, this season adding in a hint of contrasting darkness mixed with soft blush pastels. As Jackie explains, “For Fall/Winter 2014, I was inspired by strong women who are breaking the mold; shattering the idea that women are supposed to dress or act a certain way.
I loved the feel of the overall show and how she combined femininity with "rocker edge", a look I've always been a fan of. The collection featured lots of leather, geometric prints, and sparkly sequence; in a color palette of navy, black, white, purple, and pale pink. Jackie choose to pair her designs with Oxford style flats and classic Doc Martin boots done in fun updated styles like quilted leather.
The looks were complimented with makeup done my MAC cosmetics, and featured blue eye shadow, heavy black eyeliner, and purple streaked hair.
