About the designer

Emily Herron was searching for simple, versatile, and well made clothing when she was inspired to start EMLEE design in the fall of 2015 in Nashville, TN. After years of working in merchandising and event design, Emily returned to her first love of fashion with renewed passion to create clothing real women can actually wear.


From the start, EMLEE design has produced thoughtfully designed apparel for intentional women, featuring multi-functional garments made from eco-friendly, natural fabrics. Inspired by the real women in her life, including her grandmother who first taught her to sew, as well as her own experiences as a new mother, Emily seeks to create durable clothing women of all stages of life will feel beautiful in.


At EMLEE we use sustainably made materials, as well as sourced deadstock or vintage fabrics. You may see the same fabric recurring in another season as we aspire to reduce our carbon footprint. We dye our custom colors in-house and we make our best effort to purchase locally. Everything is designed, sewn, packaged and shipped from Nashville TN.

This year EMLEE will donate $5 from every sale to non-profits focused on ending human trafficking and modern-day slavery.
