Erin Barr, a Wisconsin native, began her career in fashion as a hair and make-up artist. Although working at top salons, and working on editorial shoots, Barr yearned to design a more complete vision. She moved to London to study fashion design at Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design. After a year, Barr returned to the States to complete her studies at Parson’s New School for Design, which she followed up with an internship at Alexander Wang, and a design assistant position at Cushnie Et Ochs. The Spring 2012 season found Barr debuting her own eponymous collection, titled “An American Tomboy in Paris”.
