Tencel for feel good fashion

For as long as she can remember, Emily Phillips has been head over heels for fashion. Beginning as a tee-shirt folder, Phillips worked at Seventeen Magazine, as a buyer at two of her favorite Memphis boutiques, and for a men’s custom clothing designer. THEN she launched the Emily Phillips brand.

Emily’s brand reflects life’s balance, including garments that are easy to dress up, dress down or even sleep in; sustainable fabrics and operations; and support of other woman-owned businesses. She has observed and delivered what women want each season, bringing back what’s timeless, while keeping in step with current trends.




The Great

  • Shirts and dresses made out of Tencel® (an incredibly soft material made from wood pulp), hemp, linen, and organic cotton.
  • The garments and reusable custom cloth bags in which they’re packaged (a great conversation starter at farmer’s markets and in produce aisles) are made in small batches to reduce waste. Additionally, you might get your dress or shirt tied with a beautiful scrap ribbon.

The Good

  • All dresses are made in America, not only paying fair wages, but also minimizing shipping emissions.
  • All fabrics are OKEO-TEX certified.
  • Emily Phillip’s classic shirts and dresses are no-brainers, making capsule closets more attainable.

The Meh

  • Emily focuses on staples, so the product line isn’t huge.
  • Shipping emissions are not offset, though items are made domestically.
