Immediately following his stint on Project Runway , Emmett McCarthy launched EMc2 and opened his flagship boutique on Elizabeth Street in Manhattan’s chic Nolita district. The EMc2 store established itself quickly as destination shopping for New York’s fashion cognoscenti and celebrities from Debra Messing to Heidi Klum.
Emmett is going to talk about his history, his design style and inspiration, and his experiences as a designer both in large companies and in his own store. He will present several of his garments as examples. After his talk, he’ll be holding a sample sale, and will be available for pictures.
Free for members of ASDP — $20 for non members payable to NE ASDP. Advance ticket payment deadline: October 17, 2008. Remaining tickets, $20.00 at the door. Please Respond ASAP as space is limited
