Kate Hudson Wears Tiffany Blue at the Blue Book Ball | Fashion Flash
Girl Behind the Brand: Katie Ermilio
Describe your style in 3 words:
Easy, comfortable, and sometimes polished.
On Katie: Katie Ermilio dress, Spring 2014, Finn jewelry
How does your home mirror your personal style?
It’s minimal and streamlined, but also has pops of color and different elements that somehow work together. My dear friend, CeCe Thompson, is an interior designer at Bunny Williams and I have her to thank for creating such a beautiful space! She knows me well and was dead-on in designing something that feels so much like me.

Personal style icons, one living, one dead?
Sofia Coppola and Grace Kelly
Most exciting girl to see wear KE?
This one is hard, we’ve had so many amazing girls wear KE. But the most recent was Kate Bosworth and the whole look blew me away. She was perfect.

Are you a shopper?
No! Which, I get the irony considering I design clothes! Unless it’s at Barneys in New York, though, because that way I can stop at Freds and have their chicken soup. But, I shop the same way I design, really decisively. If I’m shopping, it’s because I fell in love with something and I'm going to pick it up.

If you weren't a designer, what would be your next career choice?
Working at a magazine, no question about it.

Do you consider yourself an inherently American designer? What does that mean to you?
I do. To me being an American designer is incorporating elements of the way we live in the clothes. Easy pieces with an element of sport and versatility. Whether it be in the pure construction or the spirit of the aesthetic.

What's been the most exciting thing to happen to you since launching your brand?
At the risk of sounding cheesy, it’s pretty exciting that I get to design clothes every day. Being able to see the brand grow and evolve season after season is really rewarding.
