The beginnings of Ema Savahl-the brand date as far back as Ema Koja– the dreamer’s childhood. Growing up in Albania, surrounded by her designer/ tailor aunts, Ema got the abc-s of creating something from your imagination and the proud feeling of watching your creation worn. Mixed in with layers of Venetian lace and sewing machine grease, the dream was born, the dream that one day would become Ema Savahl. But not just yet! A self-proclaimed firm believer not in destiny so much as in people making their own luck, Ema did follow her own original path. The daughter of a pro volleyball coach (her dad) Ema became a pro volleyball player herself. Not that it needed to, but this instilled in her the impeccable discipline and work ethic. Her pro volleyball career relocated her in Italy, where she did some modeling for Blue Marine, PARAH and Off Limit, which gave Ema a tremendous insight of the fashion industry. While in Italy, she also studied pattern making, which gave her the technical knowhow of incorporating her own artistry in fabrics and other raw materials. Born with the talent and armed with all the knowledge one can absorb hands on, it was only natural for Ema to follow her instinct and be her own inspiration! Only in one of the hottest city on the planet, with the most diverse people from all over the world, with a thriving night life and a Makah for fashion industry such as Miami Beach, Florida; could delicate fabrics, exotic colors and wild artistry be worn and seen freely. And this is where the brand that everyone was soon to be reckoned with was born! Ema Savahl Designs opened for business in 1996 and has been making women look and feel beautifully unique ever since!
While the collections are intended for special events, they definitely bring out the confidence and the “je ne se qua” attitude in everyone that wears an Ema Savahl design. From Katie Perry, Giuliana Rancic, Roselyn Sanchez and many more celebrities, red carpets everywhere get continuously acquainted with Ema Savahl.
