Artist and designer Korina Emmerich founded the slow fashion brand EMME Studio in 2015. Her colorful work celebrates her patrilineal Indigenous heritage from The Puyallup tribe while aligning art and design with education. With a strong focus on social and climate justice, Emmerich's artwork strives to expose and dismantle systems of oppression in the fashion industry and challenge colonial ways of thinking.
She has recently co-founded the new atelier, gallery, showroom, and community space Relative Arts NYC. Located in the East Village. The space celebrates sustainable and subversive art and fashion.
Her work has been featured in The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Moma PS1, The Denver Art Museum, Vogue, Elle, Instyle, Fashion, Flare, New York Magazine, and more notable publications. She has presented her collections in Vancouver Indigenous Fashion Week, Indigenous Fashion and Arts, Santa Fe Indian Market's Couture Runway Show, and New York Fashion Week.
Items are handmade in our Brooklyn, New York studio located on occupied Lenapehoking. EMME is a slow fashion brand, humbly owned and operated by Korina. Key items are made from upcycled, recycled, or all natural materials giving respect to the life cycle of a garment. Supplies are limited. Production and shipping take 2-8 weeks.
