Established in 2017 by designers Reid Baker and Ines Amorim, of the United States and Portugal. Reid was born in Detroit and grew up in rural Park City, Utah, while Ines was born and raised in Viana Do Castelo, Portugal. The designers heritage plays an important role in developing their collections as they blend their cultural influences between European elegance and an American rawness.
After releasing only their second collection, the label was shortlisted for the 2018 edition LVMH prize. Ernest W. Baker’s international stockists include 10 Corso Como, Antonioli, SSENSE and United Arrows.

The support to emerging brands is one of the key missions of the Federation de la Haute Couture et de la Mode. It supports their development before and after their entry in the official calendars and contributes to increasing their visibility within an institutional, commercial, technologic and media network. The brands identified, according to their creativity and international development, are now grouped together under the banner of the " SPHERE - Emerging Brands Initiative". The Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode's Emerging Brands Initiative enables those it supports to benefit from a wide range of services ranging from financial support to provision of expertise to best anticipate the different stages of their growth. It also operates the Paris Fashion Week® Showroom, from the brands selection to its physical and digital implementation. It supports this strategy by implementing specific communication operations throughout the year. Sphère - Paris Fashion Week® Showroom - is part of the services.
