A few of my close friends have come out with some pretty incredible clothing lines this season....
My sister-in-spirit Angie Wright has come out with a small collection of women's wear called Mer that I have fallen in love with. I have the yellow dress in the photo. The colors are beautiful, the fabrics are precious, and the silhouettes are super flattering. When I was working in the Costume Institute, Angie would come visit to do inspiration research. She would spend hours looking through old periodicals and monographs of revolutionary designers. We bonded over our love for fashion history. It was always a pleasure having her come to do research and pulling archival materials for her because she would really study it all.
Check out her collection at www.mercollection.com and you can purchases her pieces at Stuart & Wright in Brooklyn and Steven Alan in Tribeca. Angie recently had a profile written about Mer in Time Out Magazine.
