Erik Nelson

After graduation Erik Nelson, 2002 BFA Fashion Design alumnus, found industry success through positions at Polo Ralph Lauren, Fila, and Victoria’s Secret. He created his brand Edinger Apparel with his wife Emily Cummings in 2013. His collection was presented on Tuesday, July 14th at New York Fashion Week: Men’s. The collection was inspired by two road trips Nelson and Cummings took on the East and West coasts. They combined beautiful colors, intricate details and an adventurous feel from the trip and then translated those inspirations into garments.
