For the second year in a row, Tea Collection dressed Modern Family’s pint-sized star Aubrey Anderson-Emmons for the Emmy Awards red carpet. Designed by Emily Meyer, Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Tea Collection, Aubrey’s Emmys dress is a darling purple dress that is both elegant and completely age-appropriate.

The design process started with sketches created specifically for Aubrey.

After narrowing down the fabric options, color was added to the sketch for Aubrey’s review. Isn’t is amazing how similar the sketch looks compared to the final result?

Emily said of the design, “The dress has a delicate bateau neckline with a graduated hem skirt, and we added a dramatic knotted tie to captivate on the red carpet. Aubrey’s favorite colors are pink and purple so I was delighted to have found this beautiful floral silk ikat – I just knew it would make the perfect accent to the lavender silk satin dress. It is sophisticated yet sweet, the perfect complement to Aubrey’s spirited charm.”
