favorite designers: I don't have too many 'favorites' because I think they all contribute to fashion and creativity, but here are a couple: definitely Marc Jacobs, Alice and Olivia, Alexander Wang, The Row, of course Chanel, L.A.M.B., Marchesa and Thakoon.
what style means to Emily: Style to me is a way of expressing yourself through personality. It's a way of accentuating what you have...and what you don't have. Style can be a pain but you have to make it work. It's an exercise, building self-confidence just like when I'm wearing 5 inch stilettos. Style is observing haute runway shows and taking the garments to fit into your own style. Style is grabbing those essential that turn an outfit from shab to fab. Most importantly, style isn't something you have, it's something you are.
