We’re so proud of Emily. She lasted so long on Project Runway! She never lost her cool, dealt with every challenge with the utmost of decorum, was entertaining to watch and her designs were absolutely eye-popping!

The good thing about Emily being off the show is that she’s back to Britex and her custom design work. If you love Emily like we do, there are several websites you should visit—and a few where you can shop.

Main Website
