WHO: Katie Ermilio
WHAT: Known for stunning, classic silhouettes in smart fabrics, the 27-year-old wunderkind designer is rapidly rising higher and higher through the ranks of the competitive fashion industry. And her aptitude is no surprise as the Philadelphia-native has style in her genes: her great-grandfather founded Ermilio Clothiers in 1897, and his son designed bespoke pieces for Grace Kelly. (Katie Ermilio’s grandfather was one of the Princess of Monaco’s most cherished personal clothiers). Although incredible natural design talent and exquisite taste may run in the family, Ermilio is quickly becoming a marquee name all on her own.
WHAT SPRING WILL BRING: Sharply tailored black-and-white striped tops and matching trousers and skirts, boldly colored evening gowns, and canary yellow dresses draped to perfection.
