Roberta Einer made her first dress when she was eleven-years-old, and she has captured the youth and vitality of that defining moment like lightening in a bottle. Today, her effervescent fashion designs are infused with a sunshine and lollipop aesthetic that has been called “as cute as candy.” She has fun with color and texture. With their epic embroidery and beautiful embellishment, Einer’s creations are fanciful, yet grounded in technique. The young designer has worked at Alexander McQueen, Balmain, and Mary Katrantzou, where she learned the value of “adding, adding, adding and making the most exciting piece possible.” Each garment, from squad jackets and eye-popping shrugs to mini-skirts, is a work of art. “I always work with materials that excite me.” Einer observes. “I think that high fashion should be about creating and selling a dream -- a dream of a better, happier, more beautiful world.” Her ideal woman has “a young soul and a brave heart.” Her motto, not surprisingly, is “Too much is never enough. But only in moderation!.” Einer was honored recently by the CFDA when she was selected as one of the organization’s 2015 Design Graduates.
