Leave it to Erickson Beamon to create a world of unearthly creatures to present their jewel encrusted world. At the presentation on Sunday night at Milk Studios. Walking into a room filled with models dressed up Carnival style with eerie live music, you had the sense you were stepping into something exotic and precious. I love their decadent crystal settings that border on sculpture. It's like the treasure chest as imagined by a young girl who dreams of being drenched in jewels. This season in particular the bright crystals added pops of color to pair with other brilliant colors you'll be seeing this season. My guess is we won't be seeing the return of minimal jewelry anytime soon.
