Using children's fashion to inspire, educate and empower the next generation of girls.

"My mother told me that fear was not an option. I was always told that women are stronger, so I believed it.” -- Diane Von Furstenberg
At Emmy + Dove we make clothing for little girls of all backgrounds. We make dresses that twirl and pieces with background stories that we hope give you and your daughter something fun to discuss every time you put them on! In parenting my own children, I take every opportunity I can find to teach them something, constantly babbling off any bit of knowledge I have about a given subject. I believe that cultivating our children's interests, curiosity and thirst for knowledge is the most important thing I can do for them.
The Her-Story Series is the culmination of everything I've ever wanted for Emmy + Dove and for my own daughter, Emmy Dove. I want my daughter to see powerful women making a difference in the world, living their truths and being themselves. I want my daughter to always be reminded that there are no barriers or ceilings that cannot be climbed or shattered when stacked against a relentless, hard belief in yourself and the hard work you are willing to do to make a difference. I also want my children to do good in the world; to go out and make things better everywhere they can, however they can, every time they can.
The Her-Story Series is our small way of doing that at Emmy + Dove. Every month, we will be releasing a garment that is inspired by and reflective of a powerful woman in history who broke the mold, blazed the trail and made an impact. Each piece will come with a keepsake card that shows the woman and gives some facts about her. Our hope is that when you receive your piece, you'll teach your child about the amazing woman who inspired it and every time she wears it, she'll think of the courage, bravery and steadfast kindness that each of the women in our series represents.
Every month 10% of the proceeds from the sale of our Her-story series will be donated to a corresponding charity.
We hope that you'll follow along with the series and as always, thank you for your incredible support at every turn.
