After spending several years in the New York City fashion industry, Emily relocated to Champaign, Illinois and has been creating fashion for mrsemily.com since.
“I’ve always felt deep in my heart that fashion is important, but it took me a good 10 years of being a wife; having a career; becoming a mama; and living life, to realize why: Fashion is a tool we can use to empower us to get our big, intimidating, and at times unpleasant jobs done.”
Emily describes her design style as a combination of elegant and useful:
“I used to design a lot of evening wear and worked for a couture bridal designer when I lived in NYC. Now, I love inserting that same after-five elegance into wearable daytime looks. I want to make clothing that’s accessible – that anyone can wear and feel beautiful in.”
