E M M E  x  Fashion Revolution

#WHOMADEMYCLOTHES Fashion Revolution is a global movement calling for greater transparency, sustainability and ethics in the fashion industry. The EMME Team stands with this movement and their beliefs in sustainable action, human rights, fair wage and transperancy in the industry.

 

All our items are made in our Brooklyn Studio. Our production runs for department stores are manufactured locally in The New York Garment District on 38th street. We are strict on our minimal waste policy and are always trying to find ways to re-invent "leftovers" and "scrap" material and turn them into fabulous fashions!

 

We want to unite the fashion industry and ignite a revolution to radically change the way our clothes are sourced, produced and purchased, so that what the world wears has been made in a safe, clean and fair way.

 

On 24 April 2013, the Rana Plaza building in Bangladesh collapsed. 1,138 people died and another 2,500 were injured, making it the fourth largest industrial disaster in history.

 

That’s when Fashion Revolution was born.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There were five garment factories in Rana Plaza all manufacturing clothing for big global brands. The victims were mostly young women.

E M M E  x  STUDY HALL EARTH

"Study Hall : Sustainability as a Culture”, the fourth in its critically-acclaimed conference series Study Hall. Hot on the heels of a successful partnership with the United Nations in February, the first international edition was held in London UK at Central Saint Martins college of art and design, in collaboration with Fashion Revolution. The event took place during Fashion Revolution Week, on the 6th anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse.

As with previous Study Hall events, Study Hall x Central Saint Martins gathered leading industry experts in fashion and textile manufacturing, paired with cultural influencers, academics, activists and artists. Study Hall continues to be among the most culturally diverse events of its kind, this time exploring the central theme of “Sustainability as a Culture”, and themes of racial justice, responsible sourcing and manufacturing, circularity, and authenticity in design. Study Hall x Central Saint-Martins is powered by G-Star Raw, adidas, and Calik Denim, Youtube.

E M M E  x  INDIGENOUS KINSHIP COLLECTIVE

Korina Emmerich works actively in the urban Indigenous communities throughout Turtle Island (aka North America). Indigenous Kinship Collective is a community of Indigenous womxn and femme people who gather on Lenni Lenape land to honor each other and our relatives through art, activism, education, and representation. We, as matriarchs and knowledge keepers, center our intersectional narratives by practicing accountability with community and self-determination. We uplift intergenerational Indigenous Native voices and welcome mixed race, non-enrolled, Indigenous femme, non-binary, trans, two-spirit people.  We denounce colonial power structures of leadership and blood quantum. We are circular and work in harmony with each other.

We are defined by those who came before us. 

E M M E  x  ACLU

For our Love Sees Color collection, EMME was proud to donate a proceed of every LSC tee sale to the ACLU .

"The American Civil Liberties Union was founded in 1920 and is our nation's guardian of liberty. The ACLU works in the courts, legislatures and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed to all people in this country by the Constitution and laws of the United States."

Our tees are printed locally in Brooklyn NY by Kingsland Printing using eco-friendly water based ink.

E M M E  x  Planned Parenthood

Once a year, EMME owner Korina Emmerich, foregoes gifts and asks that all family, friends, supporters and fans donate to the Planned Parenthood Health Center.

For 100 years, Planned Parenthood has been a beacon of hope for thousands of individuals and families who rely on them for essential reproductive health care, innovative educational programs, and effective advocacy.

As a small female owned company, it has become a personal mission of Korina Emmerich to continue to support the efforts and availability of the health clinic. EMME has been proud to donate proceeds of our Chromotherapy Jacket to The Planned Parenthood Action Fund, dedicated to fighting to protect the right that all women and people have to live strong and healthy lives.
