The Regal Beauty

For a beautiful moment, a young muse was transformed, developing a sense of mysterious calm. 

This clothing captured my imagination when I first saw the Spanish brand at NYFW. It was elegant and romantic while being ever so avant-garde. Delpozo’s history is as rich in story telling and fantasy as the clothing is today. The house has designed award-winning costumes for ballet and opera, tableware, and jewelry. The original designer Jesús del Pozo’s appreciation for all things beautiful was apparent in every venture he pursued.

You can see why I became so inspired to bring to life this character, this beauty and visually tell a story of a young princess tied to duty with every storm in life ahead of her but with the innocence that can only come from youth, a character I saw within the silhouettes of these pieces, through the eyes of our stunning model and the regal Chopard jewels.

Now creative director Josep Font is reinvigorating this well-known Spanish brand under the name DELPOZO and relaunching with more of a focus on high-end women’s clothing. I’m looking forward to photographing the new collection in just a few weeks when a fleet of models will glide down the runway in a whole new fantasy.  While Font draws inspiration from many varied places, he is absolutely centered on connecting with women.

Katie Ermilio Fall 2011 Look Book 

From the designerMy inspiration was to further explore the balance between tailored menswear and inherent feminine style. I worked within a saturated palette of bold blues, pinks and reds – color blocking a of line blazers, party dresses, and gowns all underscored by my approach to simplicity and ease. I designed the collection conscious of the fact that the clothes would be arriving in stores in July – mixing up light chiffons with silk failles and wool satins to create a transitional wardrobe that will carry a woman through the seasons. 


The Katie Ermilio girl is ageless, something that I learned directly from the source – my own clients. I began my design career creating custom clothes for a private clientele, learning all along the way how my customer wants to feel and what she looks for in clothes. My youngest client is in her teens and the eldest now nearly 80. What I always find fascinating is that no matter what her chronological age, my clients’ tastes and needs are binded by the thread that she wants to feel beautiful in flattering, well made clothing that is timeless in style and effortless in its nature.
