Working out never looked so good!
#HipNJ’s Kendall Zoppa stopped by Flow Yoga Studio in Ho-Ho-Kus to chat with up-and-coming fashion designer Emily Hsu.
Emily is an accomplished dancer, singer and actress who has appeared on television, film and Broadway. The yoga enthusiast has parlayed that success into a #hip athletic wear company, Emily Hsu Designs, that is flattering and stylish!
“I wanted something fun to wear for my workouts, but I wasn’t finding anything in the market that I liked,” explained Emily. “So I started to make leggings for myself!”
That entrepreneurial spirit got the attention of her fellow Yogis.
“People had a good response to it and would ask, ‘Hey, can you make me something?’ and it blossomed from there.”
Emily keeps affordability and comfort in mind when creating her colorful product line, which includes shorts, sports bras, capris, shorts and headbands. Emily hopes to expand into t-shirts and more!
The biggest challenge she has faced are people’s apprehension to wearing loud colors and bold designs, but she’s quick to squash that stereotype.
“First time customers don’t realize that [the prints] are more flattering than solid color, and are pleasantly surprised by how they look.” Who knew?!
