Emperor’s Real Clothes is the antidote to blog blindness. We’ve all wandered in the darkness long enough. That green light at the end of the tunnel is the valiant power indicator flashing from my indefatigable laptop whose mission it is to show us the way to salvation. If not salvation, exactly, then at least one route to a life well lived. No stone remains unturned in search solutions to: what to wear, where to go, what to do, how to be and all with style. Enough of the highway, let’s try it my way!
Eric Gaskins, the creator of Emperor’s Real Clothes, has designed his own eponymous collection for the last 30 years. Having begun his career at the feet of Hubert de Givenchy in Paris, he went on to dress many greats for the Oscars, Golden Globes, and counted Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus as his biggest accounts. He created and has written with often sharp fanged humor the critical fashion blog, Emperor’s Old Clothes for the past 8 years and is presently at work on a memoir of his 30 years on the front lines of luxury fashion.
Gaskins divides his time between NYC, East Hampton and the larger world.
