Shattered Dreams by Erickson Beamon…

Prepare to “Be…dazzled,” warned the late Alexander McQueen, a frequent collaborator for jewelry designers Erickson Beamon.  Detroit natives Karen & Eric Erickson and Vicki Beamon founded the over the top accessory line that has adorned everyone from the first lady Michelle Obama to pop star Lady Gaga.  The dream team is credited with creating and maintaining the popularity of the chandelier earring, and would soon be featured in Vogue magazine during the company’s infancy.  At a stalwart 27 years in the business, the business still finds time to put on a great presentation as you’ll see from my pictures taken at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York City during their S/S 2013 collection presented at Lincoln Center last September.  Models were literally pushed on heavy industrial carts by male models in tuxedos and Chuck Taylor’s.  The models necklaces and statement earrings weren’t the only thing that pushed the style envelope.  Check out the dramatic eye make up!  The model caravan made its way around a bleacher/riser that had NYC socialites like Marla Maples (remember her?  Mrs. Trump #2?), and others sitting on it as though they were spectators at an accessory circus!  I LOVED it!

Hamish Bowles, of Vogue Magazine (America) says that, “Like all great design originals, Erickson Beamon’s jewels of fantasy hold a mirror up to their times.  And what times they have been! – The rollicking, coruscating, dangerous 80’s; the sleek, spare, barely-there 90’s, and out eclectic century:  a jewel-box brimming with more possibilities…”
