Emily Sifrit is the designer behind e.Kaye, a clothing label based in Chicago, IL. The 33 year old studied textile design and merchandising for 2 short years after high school, however the base of her education has been through 20+ years of hands on experiences. She began sewing at her grandmother's table at the age of 7, and has let her instincts and imagination guide the way since. Emily considers fabric her artistic medium, although she's been known to create rare garments using burlap, plastic tarps and foil. Her statements are versatile, edgy, feminine, and always nod to pure sensuality.
e.kaye has been featured in shows including Fashion Focus Chicago 2012-2015, Fashion In The Streets, and was voted one of the top 3 finalists of 2013 for the international organization RAW Natural Born Artists. Her previous collections have been included in a variety of charity events and indie showcases in the Chicago area, Milwaukee, New Orleans, Charlotte, and Los Angeles. In 2017 Emily took a more concentrated approach to branding and the building of a true fashion house. Now 2018 brings her first experiences with NYFW, with a collection aptly named 'twenty eighteen'.
