Today, her style is still inspiring designers and fashionistas looking to be unique and daring yet classic and enduring. Charmaine Ho, Creative Director of Me Char, has designed her Spring/Summer 2012 collection with the iconic Edie in mind.
Using fuchsia, Mint, Rose, Coral, Yellow and Royal Blue for a color pallet as well as a leopard print that will make you purr, the collection translated Sedgwick’s bold fashion choices into today’s setting.
