In a recent call with Glamour, Ella Emhoff – named after famous Ella Fitzgerald – told her stepmom remained stalwart during the presidential elections campaign. Growing up with a role model like Harris and a self-claimed ‘modern family’ (Harris and Emhoff’s biological mom have become best friends over the past years) can be nothing but inspiring in the long run. Therefore, the Parsons student, artist and fashion designer Emhoff is right on her way to becoming a well-known personality herself. A very stylish one, to be precisely.

Fashion, but make it fun
Why not wearing a tote bag as a hat? Where we would only find this a solution when it rains and you have no umbrella or hat around, Emhoff just goes with the flow of making fashion fun.
Dress like a princess, don’t act like one
Dressing up is great, but don’t behave snooty nor arrogant. Rather, stick to the above mentioned statement.

Hand-knitted and crochet items are an enhancement of life, must Emhoff have thought when creating the cheerful items displayed below.
Embrace the joy of dressing up
Emhoff enjoys the art of dressing like no other. With her colorful and little alternative appearance, she shines her light even during the darkest times of the year. Everything about this young lady expresses joy: from the look on her face to the items she carefully picks to create the most uplifting looks.
