Fashionable First Friday

Friday night, us girls at Emily Muller opened our studio/showroom to the public for the first time! It was a truly perfect evening - our new studio has a fresh coat of paint, and the clothing looked amazing - we had our new collections out along with some pieces from the archives. Plus, a ton of Boston's glitterati turned up to try on clothing, check out "Escape", the new SS2012 collection, and enjoy some libations. The air was crackling with good will, and every time I looked around the room everyone was smiling, laughing, and having a good time. Enemies became friends, friends became Best Friends -- a good time was had by all. And I could have sworn I saw a unicorn gallop past the open door and wink at us.

God (Fashion God, of course - non-denominational, although has a soft-spot for YSL) knows I love a big, dramatic collar, so I literally snatched this Emily Muller vest so quickly that there was a smoke imprint where it used to be. Snakeskin blouse from Kenneth Cole.

I pretty much live in these pants - Matchstick Cords by JCrew.

 Emily Muller, right, wearing (what else) Emily Muller, and her mom, who happened to show up in pretty much the same outfit! The apple doesn't fall far from the atelier, does it?

Blogger twins Kristin, aka The Boston Fashionista, and Michele, of Michele's Musings

 The world's sweetest (and most talented) photographer, Sarah Winchester, and Jess Sutton, one of the founders of Directory B - If you are a blogger, you definitely want to sign up to this blog directory. (Both in Emily Muller coats, available here and here)

 With Brittney, blogger from Brilliance of B. We had matching purses! Great minds...

Elena Kucerova, an amazing aesthetician from La Residencia Spa in Newton, MA - just outside Boston. You simply must book her for a 24k Gold Facial. Seriously. Your life will change.

Chatting with Holly, of Covetous Creatures. To caption this photo - "Can you believe this guy over here?" 

This beautiful lady fell in love with this olive silk dress. It suited her so well that she bought it and wore it out the door. Beautiful!!!

Helping Holly try on this gorgeous Silk Parachute Dress from the SS2012 Collection. We are starting custom pre-orders for the entire collection, which you can see here.

How perfectly does this match her hair and her Litas?

Make sure and check out our website,, and if you are in the Boston area, come by the first Friday of every month for our open studios, or make an appointment to see the collections. 

Let me know what you guys think of the clothing and the party -- you know how much I love feedback and comments!


  1. This was so much fun! Thank you, Renata and Emily for hosting. I swear,'i smiled so much that night my face hurt. Also, the clothes! The clothes!

  2. Some say fashion is merely an aesthetic fix for the eye. Its essence is seen on a surface level. But there are designers-Emily Muller, and executive directors Renata who seek to accomplish much more than what meets the eye. Thanks very much again!
