Erin Fetherston is always a delight. She's one of those designers that is really a character and icon in her own right, but in a very understated way. Of her Fall 2012 Erin by Erin Fetherston collection she said:

"There's a lot of really electric textures ... metallicized chiffon, sequins, lots of embellishment and lots of sparkle."

For her must have item of the season she chose the little black dress.

"We have a bunch of amazing ones in the collection this season. One of my favorites has a fit and flare silhouette in a metallicized black jacquard, it has a tiny waist and makes the legs look long, it's great."

She also tipped me off that her muse Zooey Deschanel would be wearing her design on Saturday night live that night! I'm guessing it was the red heart-print frock she wore in her monologue if you caught it.
