Autumn/Winter 2016/17 Collection

Emily Cho’s founders had a vision: redefine the ideal handbag. Using luxurious leather, clean lines and exotic textures that challenge the most famous designers’ monograms, the fashion label is the epitome of elegance. Here is a preview of Emily Cho’s Autumn/Winter 2016/17 collection, now available for pre-order.

The Dream Team: Two Women With a Vision

Emily Cho‘s founders are Emily Gellis, a former buyer for Intermix, and SJ Cho, an artist turned designer from South Korea. They joined forces in April 2010 to start the fashion label from scratch. Emily and SJ Cho built the brand, studying handbag designs inside and out, even cutting Chanel bags open. After traveling to Italy on the hunt for the right manufacturer to execute their vision, Emily and SJ discovered a family owned factory that has specialized in manufacturing handbag production for over sixty years. The perfect fit for this designer duo with a bold fashion statement.
