About Jordan Klein:
Jordan Klein, former Vogue model and graphic designer, quit school to start his line, RockIcon. Currently, part owner of a graphic T-shirt line, "Casual-Ts", he is launching his own eponymous line of men's clothing, where each collection's underlying 'story' inspires the wearer to become a hero. His first fall 2010 collection inspired by the last part of the action movie "Hero", features fashion-forward, dramatic, edgy pieces with familiar silhouettes that make 'Everyman' feel like a 'Hero'.

About Mariska:
Mariska, (pronounced ma'rish'ka), was created by Maria Janossy, a Transylvanian transplant and lawyer-turned-fashion designer. The line features well-constructed dresses and separates that work day-into-night, a modern interpretation of Austro-Hungarian empire fashion, intertwining aristocratic elegance with peasant simplicity, merging seamlessly from day into evening. Created for the thinking, discerning, confident woman, the boutique line employs unique designs produced in small batches, with quality and value in mind.

About EM Reconstruct:
The EM Reconstruct label, available exclusively at EM & Co, represents the latest trend in eco-conscious fashion: Up-cycling of garments. Combining edgy trend-setting style with eco-friendly practices, existing garments are re-fashioned and modified, sometimes beyond recognition, into new creations. Each garment is individually created and unique; no two garments are ever identical. EM Reconstruct releases a number of mini-collections per year grouped around a theme, created by EM and in collaboration with other local designers. The fall 2010 collection, themed around knits and leather, includes designs by Krys-n-Jack, Queenie4ever, and EM.
