Two talented women, working for the same company in New York, began a collaboration that launched the designer Emily Cho. Emily Gellis and SJ Cho had diversely different backgrounds and the Emily Cho handbags are the fusion of a native New Yorker and a girl from South Korea. The pair recognized the void for the handbag scene for luxury, high-end products. Emily Cho handbags are made by hand in a factory in Italy that has specialized in this industry for over sixty years. The ladies sought a balance between a vibrant fashion statement and complete functionality and achieved success with the Emily Cho company.
