Designer Erica Young describes Erica M., her ultra sexy line of hosiery and bodysuits, as "focused on creating an emotional response." And indeed it does.
One look at Young's Italian-made, intricately designed, burlesque-ready collection and you see why celebs like Rihanna, Madonna and supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio are covering their curves in the creations. And speaking of curves, Beyoncé is one of Young's biggest fans and has requested several custom designs, including one-of-a-kind sets of her signature tights in nude.
The Brooklyn-based designer told Style.com that she was "starstruck" when the "Drunk In Love" singer called to express her admiration for the line and place an order. Young shared that Bey also apologized that she hadn't been photographed in her Erica M. pieces because she mainly wears them "at home in front of her husband!” Ooh la la!
With that said, Young hopes that women will wear her collection with both confidence and sass. “She is a working lady who likes to have something a little sexy on underneath to reveal at the end of a long day. She’s strong and walks with a swing in her step," Young told Style.com.
Here's a sneak peak at the Erica M. Fall/Winter 2014 collection, which can be purchased on Ericam.net and Nordstrom.com in July.
