Luxury womenswear fashion designer and technology enthusiast, Emily Burnett is internationally recognized within the fashion industry for her feminine sensibility and cutting-edge innovation. Attention to ornate details, couture craftsmanship, and effortlessness characterize her aesthetic.
Emily paved the way to her design success by moving to New York City in 2003 to study Fashion Design at Parsons School of Design. She received high accommodations in fashion by competing internationally and winning global sponsorships. After graduating with a BFA in Fashion Design and a BA in Media Studies, Burnett launched her career as a designer at Ralph Lauren Black Label working under Whitney Fairchild.
Later, she made a move to New York’s premier luxury design house, Dennis Basso where at age 23, she became the brand’s Creative Director. Her debut collection for the Spring 2010 runway created a powerful shift in the brand and her signature touch on the label generated hype amongst top stylists like Law Roach, Patti Wilson, Lori Goldstein, Kate Young, Anya Zirourova, and Gillian Wilkins as well as supermodels, Naomi Campbell, Coco Rocha, Chanel Iman, Hilary Rhoda, Flaviana Matata, and Grace Mahary.
In 2018, Burnett exited Basso after designing over 40 collections to launch her eponymous luxury line Burnett New York. Always amplifying a boldly feminine luxury fashion with a mission to empower and inspire all women. A regular participant at New York Fashion Week and was sold into top retailers such as Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Net-A-Porter, and Moda Operandi.
