New local clothing label emmi
has released its first collection, featuring size-inclusive, comfy basics from co-founders Thanh Phung
and Lauren Hill
“We like to say that emmi was born over a coffee date between two friends,” Phung tells The Coast. The lifestyle blogger teamed up with Hill, children’s clothing designer of MoneyPenny Designs
, to create emmi.
In mid-November, the duo released a fall/winter collection of colour-neutral, body-draping pieces that truly encompass the company’s tag line, “emmi for every body.”
After a year and a half of work, “it’s surreal to see It come to life,” Phung says. The pieces are simple garments that evoke “warmth, style, versatility and inclusiveness,” and are designed with size and body inclusivity in mind, some pieces ranging from xs to 3xl, and with no gendered items.
