Looking for a head-to-toe ensemble to go with your fabulous Erickson Beamon baubles? Look no further.

Karen Erickson and Vicki Beamon, business partners behind the high-end jewelry line Erickson Beamon, are branching out into ready-to-wear, the New York Times reports.

The 29-year-old company will reveal its first pieces at its New York Fashion Week presentation on Thursday night at Milk Studios—and according to Beamon, it was the concept of a presentation that was the impetus for the clothing line in the first place.

“It’s self-indulgent and a waste of time to take jewelry and make some still life and call it a show,” she told the Times. “But it’s time for us to be spreading our wings.”

The collection is inspired by Weimar Berlin, with slip dresses and jackets embellished with beads, brooches, and more touches reminiscent of the jewelry line. That jewelry sensibility will also come through in the collection’s colors.

“Of course, we’re doing jewel tones,” she said.

The haute pieces are expected to retail in the four figures—and the designers aren’t stopping there.

“What we do now is make each piece of jewelry by hand in our workshops in Manhattan and Belgravia,” said Beamon. “It is a bespoke couture-style product. But it would be nice to be able to have more people have access to beautiful things that we make, with our own boutiques where we make everything from mannequins to chandeliers to chairs.”
