Meet Emily Gartner

Emily Gartner Designs is all about fashion, art and intentional design.  At the core, Emily explores solutions for creating lively sustainable fashions via painting, photographing, hand dyeing, printing and up cycling.  She starts with designing unique and engaging textiles for her fashion collections and mixes in up cycled clothing to complete the line.  She also shares that knowledge by working in her community with cancer patients teaching them her tools of the trade to design their own head wraps. Some of her clients have been the Rockefellers, Broadway stars and an international opera singer.  She is mostly self taught through the influence of both her mother and father.  Her mother was a home sewist and her father had his own paint contracting business.  She loved helping him mix paints when she was a child.
