THE MATRIARCH COLLECTION
Erica Walcott NY recently premiered its first full collection at the Alchemical Theater Lab located in NYC. With vibrant hues of yellow, the Matriarch collection showed stunning detail and structure. In one of the most anticipated fashion presentations of 2014, Erica Walcott’s line featured nine pieces that reflected femininity with a hybrid mixture of contemporary sophistication.
The line was inspired by the designer’s mom, “Yellow reminds me of my mother; a color indicative of resilience, tenacity, drive, power, and openness. My mother sees my passion, and it empowers me.” said Walcott when asked about the collection’s thematic yellow hue and why she chose the word “Matriarch” for her first collection.
