Erin Young Designs is a custom design fashion house for the sophisticated individual who seeks the best in quality materials and outstanding couture designs.
I have been sewing since I was five years old and was taking fine tailoring classes by the time I was fifteen. I graduated from Purdue University in Retail Management, and then went on to the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City and studied fashion design. I have since been trained in couture design and technique.
Over the years, I have created everything from wedding gowns to chef jackets. I have worked locally and nationally on celebrity photo shoots and commercials for clients ranging from Kendra to professional athletes to Super Bowl VIP’s.
After many years of searching for fine fabrics throughout the world, I’m happy to offer a selection of beautiful fine fabrics, trims and lace to the States. My philosophy is that fashion is a collaboration. I work hands-on with you to create a design that is personal, beautiful and fits perfectly. My specialties include fine design, women, bridal and custom work.
I love to inspire and see the light bulb go off in all my customers – especially young designers. I have taken a few students under my wing, and currently I have three studying design around the country (SCADD, Parsons, and Univ. of Vermont).
I am a member of the Haute Couture Society of Chicago and a member of the Indiana Museum of Art -Fashion Arts Society.
