December fashion week in NYC is becoming to be a force to be reckon with. Maybe with the newly created December fashion week was the best time for Burnett New York to celebrate the launch of their label with a Pre-Fall 2019 Presentation.
This is Emily Burnette first collection. But she is definitely not a stranger to fashion. She was the creative eye and fashion director for Dennis Basso. I feel her time there is very clear in this collection. You can see the familiar high luxury feel in both collections. Like many designers, the idea of starting a signature company was something that Burnett aspired to.
Strong 90’s vibe and shoulders: This was a stand out piece as well for Founder Sterling, as she loved this blue power CEO look .
To me it is always amazing to see a designer who is stylish and embodies their brand and collection. I had the pleasure of meeting and talking with both Emily Burnett and Sterling McDavid. It was honestly the best interview I ever had. These two were so excited and it was easy to see it a mile away. Sterling and Emily met on any women’s special day; her wedding. Emily B oversaw the creation of her (Sterling) dress. The collaboration is any one’s desire especially a New Yorker. Both ladies decided that their professional career needed more of a creative direction. This was a match made in fashion heaven. Sterling’s experience at Goldman Sachs gave her the financial experience and knowledge to get a brand of the ground.
Burnett NY is dedicated to the bespoke renaissance and empowering the next generation of female creatives. The collection is made for the empowered CEO who is a boss at work, but yet still cool and down to earth to catch a few drinks with her friends and coworkers.
The Burnett New York Pre-Fall 2019 Collection is inspired by modern power-dressing for strong women. It is so amazing to see two females who are setting the tone of what it is to be a woman and how to be strong and feminine. This collection is to dress women and also teach them how inspire and empowere others.
The modern woman is multi-faceted; she’s a mother, an entrepreneur, an athlete, a sister, a lover, a CEO, who walks into a room with purpose. Her wardrobe should reflect her dynamic lifestyle and her personality: This is what was lacking from fashion and this was the root of launching the collection. If I had to sum up the night and the collection FIERCE ELEGANCE !!!
