Emily Herron - EMLEE design

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 waste. We dye our custom colors ourselves, and everything we can’t find, we make our best effort to purchase locally. The pieces are all sewn, packaged and shipped from Nashville TN.

There are still women who face basic human rights issues, here in our own backyard. With everything that is happening in society today, we can all do something to affect change. This year EMLEE will donate 5% of all sales to
