Swedish designed clothes in feminine vintage style from Emmy Design
Emmy Design is a Swedish women-owned brand that designs and produces feminine clothing in the most beautiful retro and vintage style, inspired by time and fashion from 1940er, 1950er and 1960s! Emmy is particularly known for their focus on fit and their high quality of materials, where they predominantly use natural materials for optimal comfort.
Emmy Design was founded in 2010 by Swedish designer Emmy Nilsson. Emmy graduated from Copenhagen Fashion and Design School in 2008, and after two years as a freelancer, she started the brand because on the one hand she was tired of the job insecurity as a freelancer, and because on the other hand she had a great desire to create something for herself that combined her interest in history and vintage clothing with her abilities as a designer. Emmy started the company on her own and in 2015, her sister, Lisa, became a partner in the company. Lisa has a master’s degree in business administration, so it fell to Emmy very naturally to ask her if she would be part of the company. Lisa said yes, and since then the two sisters from Småland have further developed Emmy Design together, so that the brand is now sold in over 50 European retro and vintage stores! It is true power-sisterhood!
A small vintage brand with strong values
Emmy Design always aims to produce clothing for their customers that lasts season after season, both because they want their customers to have the best and because sustainability and concern for the environment form a large part of their corporate values. Therefore, they only make two collections a year (spring / summer and autumn / winter), and their clothes are always produced in limited quantities, which helps maintain the brand's quality standards! Emmy's knitwear is produced in a small factory in Morocco, and their other clothes are made in a small factory in Lithuania. Emmy Design has a good collaboration with both production sites, and when you stand with the clothes in your hands, it is easy to both feel and see that it has been created in competent hands under good conditions.
Furthermore, it also means a lot to the two sisters that women of all sizes and body types can buy their clothes and feel amazingly comfortable, so even though it is a very small business, they design clothes of all sizes, too. plus size, and they are constantly evolving on their size range so that in the future they can offer even more types of customers their amazing clothes.

The Ice Skater cardigan from Emmy Design
We fell in love with its feminine, classic design and amazing quality from the start, and today it is one of our most popular styles among all the clothes in the store because it fits everything perfectly. It is especially good for your waist-cut retro and vintage dresses, because the design is specifically made to create the iconic hourglass silhouette with its full shoulders, V-shaped neckline, horizontal cable knit and the short waist. It is simply an amazing cardigan and we think it is an absolute must-have in your wardrobe!
