Erickson Beamon Fall 2012: A Sparkling Prohibition-Era Shindig

The Scene: For their first foray into ready-to-wear, designers Karen Erickson and Vicki Beamon went all out, transforming the eighth floor of Milk Studios into a Roaring Twenties "Deca-Dance." While mannequins displaying the label's signature jeweled necklaces, breastplates and collars stood by the room's entrance, models lounged on velvet sofas and boogied about in head-to-toe flapper finery.

The Soundtrack: The Citizens Band's cabaret-style live performance perfectly set the tone for the evening.

The Look: Feathered cocktail frocks studded with Swarovski crystals, bias-cut silk slips, lace negligees and more jet-beaded details than you could shake a stick at.

Pieces We Want: If reality and practicality were no object, we'd wear that bottle-green double-strapped dress to the grocery store. But we'd gladly settle for one of Erickson Beamon's jeweled collars.
