Emily Muller to show line at Fashionably Late



Spring/Summer 2012 dresses.

Boston designer Emily Muller thought she’d be an architect, but then life intervened.

She’d always enjoyed sewing (feeling ambitious, she once cut up the curtains when she was a kid), but when her sister got engaged and asked Muller to make the wedding gown, it was time for the budding designer to get serious.

She got a book on bridal couture and dug in, ignoring the tacky designs to focus on how to tailor and make patterns.

Later, after taking a job as a seamstress, Muller knew it was only a matter of time before she launched her own line of clothing.

The Wellesley native’s Fall/Winter 2012 collection, dubbed “Under Wraps,’’ will be on display Thursday night at Fashionably Late, the chic cocktail and couture event held at the Liberty Hotel.

After making a splash with her edgy yet feminine pieces at Boston Fashion Week, Muller will show lots of layers, uneven hemlines, and flattering silhouettes for fall.

The palette is sure to appeal as well.

“I can’t stray away from my love of black and gray,’’ Muller told us Tuesday. “And I’m definitely an earth tone person.’’

Fashionably Late takes place Thursday from 9 p.m.- 2 a.m. at the Liberty Hotel, 215 Charles St., Beacon Hill.

Admission is free, but RSVP is required at fashion@liberty
