Charming Shirt Waister Dress

Country of Origin: Lithuania.

This beautiful maple leaf print viscose fabric originated from France before becoming a dress in Lithuania after being designed by Emmy in Sweden.  

Emmy Design Sweden

By focusing on timeless style and a quality that lasts for years, Emmy aims to slow down the pace of the fashion industry, reduce needless mass production and thus do what they can to help protect the environment. Their small scale production is split between two factories, they make their clothing in Lithuania and their knitwear in China Fabrics are sourced internationally according to Emmy’s specifications.

This small business is run by two women, sisters in fact. Emmy is the designer; she founded the company in 2010. Lisa came on board to help run the company after finishing her management degree in 2015. The level of thought, effort and professionalism that goes into every detail of their work to ensure best fit, style, quality and service is testament to these wonderful women’s achievements.

Emmy and Revival Retro

Revival Retro has built a wonderful relationship with Emmy and Lisa over the years founded on mutual respect and admiration. As women run small businesses we support and consult with each other on many aspects of business not just each new season’s collection as we constantly aim to improve our internal processes and remain relevant to our customers wants and needs.
