Emgee was founded by females with a passion for the slow-living lifestyle and all that comes with it. With that in mind, they started working on concepts that fit into their own style of living.
"We believe comfort can be fashionable and that convenience is key" - what a slogan!
Emgee is slow fashion for a slow-living enthusiast.
Proudly South African, all their pieces are carefully designed and manufactured whilst supporting fellow local suppliers along the way!
They manufacture small batches of each item to minimise waste, and the plan is to keep it that way.
Instead, their focus is on producing comfortable, affordable and high-quality items. The Emgee team believes in buying less, and buying local!
WHY WE LOVE THEM
When Emgee approached me to list on the directory I was all types of excited!
I love locally produced brands that follow a slow fashion model by creating classic garments in basic neutrals.
Emgee ticks all the boxes.
Whilst you are still likely to find a fun print in their accessories range, they keep their wardrobe staples in fabulous shades of grey, stone and white, to ensure that you are purchasing a style that will not tire or date.
I think you are going to love them!

THE LIV WRAP SHIRT
ON MY WISH LIST
The Liv Shirt mimics a formal shirt, with its collar and tight cuffs. The cuffs have two buttons with shell detail. The similarities, however, end there. The shirt has a 135cm long strap that can be wrapped around the waist or tightened into a beautiful bow in the front or back.
The options make this a unique and versatile top. This versatility, coupled with the soft, flowyness of the fabric, makes it perfect for exploring different styles depending on occasion or mood.
For a super stylish polished look, wear this as a set with The Liv Pants. Or use it to take a simple pair of jeans to the next level.
THE LIBBY DRESS
ON MY WISH LIST
The Libby Dress is made with a comfy linen/rayon blend. The back is a little bit longer than the front, to create a waterfall look and the sleeves are mid-length with a little flare at the end.
The loose fitting and relaxed nature of this dress is so appealing to me. It is one of those dresses that can be worn when all else fails. It has the potential to become your 'old-faithful' - one that you know will always look good!
If dressed up with heels and jewels, The Libby Dress could be transformed into a smarter cocktail style dress.
Staying true to Emgee's "throw on and go" approach, this dress is easy and effortless, yet so chic.
