When the 25-year old graduated from Parsons School of Design two years ago, Saks Fifth Avenue bought her entire thesis collection, plus a limited production run. Verrier's first big break was an internship at Proenza Schouler several years ago but these days her style has come into its own.
Her line debuted in spring 2006 and continues to display the same girlish style the designer favors for her personal wardrobe: frilly tops, lacy bustiers, a candy-colored trench.
Her look is classic and very ladylike, with a nod to a 1950s Audrey Hepburn or Tippi Hendren style (after all, this is a girl whose dog is named Schiaparelli). Her collection included pencil skirts, form fitting blouses and wide belts. A die-hard lover of fashion’s great names, Verrier has also looked to an array of cultural influences to inform her ladylike motifs, including Doctor Zhivago, Alice in Wonderland, and F. Scott Fitzgerald's novella, The Beautiful and the Damned.
