Gabe Saporta, lead singer for the band Cobra Starship, is now engaged to fashion designer Erin Fetherston. The pair started dating in early 2011, and became engaged this past New Year's Eve while vacationing in Barbados.
According to Page Six, the news is just hitting the media now after designer Fetherston revealed that she would not be showing off as many collections as usual due to wedding planning. Fetherston shared, “I’m getting married this spring, so I wanted to balance my energy between Fashion Week and planning.”
Saporta, 33, shared the details of his proposal to People, saying, “I woke up at dawn to go collect coral and flowers from the beach next to our cottage. I used them to write out my proposal on our patio and then I woke Erin up in a frenzy to come see a ‘monkey’ that had appeared in our backyard. My sleepy-eyed bride quickly realized the only monkey that morning was me … and of course, she said,'Yes!’”
When asked about her dream wedding gown the designer said, “I will definitely design my own dress. It's gonna be a reflection of my aesthetic —- so romantic, fairy tale.”
Fetherston also gushed over her gorgeous ring, saying, “I love it because it’s luminous and romantic, with the right amount of edge. The platinum was oxidized to give the ring a vintage feeling.”
Fetherston is currently involved in Fashion Week projects, while Saporta is working on his band's fifth album.
