Erica Laba, B.F.A. Fashion Design, was born in Fort Worth, Texas and raised in Massena, New York where she went to Massena Central High School. Her collection is a collaboration with Textile and Knitwear Design students. Laba was inspired by the silhouettes of early 20th century Gibson girls. She constructed the collection of nipped waists and full skirts using silk organza, and twill in dark shades to mimic slick, city streets after a bought of rain.
