NYFW Spring 2012: Katie Ermilio's Pastel Party

The Venue: A gallery space near Lincoln Center.

The Scene: Pretty young things in doll face makeup, uptown ladies placing personal orders and a few downtown scenesters sprinkled in for good measure.

The Look: Jackie O-meets-Francoise Hardy. Models in '60s-style bouffants wearing pastel wool, sheer white organza and bright cropped sweaters. (This season marks the up-and-comer's first foray into knitwear.) 

What We Want to Buy: What don't we want to buy?! Ermilio's knack for precisely-made separates and frocks in irresistible colors—mint green, dusty rose—makes her one of the most exciting new designers in New York.
