Emily Wang has had a passion for fashion for as long as she could remember. She graduated with a diploma in fashion design from LaSalle College in 2000. While she was studying, she ran her own business, Excellence International, producing private label collections for well-know Canadian brands. She met Sheldon Mazoff, a ladies’ wear salesman, in early 2001 and they soon become close friends as they both shared the same passion for ladies’ ready to wear and admired each other’s qualities. They launched their first collection Alison Sheri Collection in Summer 2002. In 2009, they started an edgier sister line called Elena Wang.
Emily designs each Alison Sheri and Elena Wang garment for the busy, modern woman. While putting together her collections, she ensures that each includes pieces, from office appropriate knits to sleek dresses and weekend wear, to suite every taste and occasion. Each season, she travels the world consistently to find inspiration through the latest trends, styles, colours and patterns and fuses them into fun, flattering and always appropriate pieces. Once the collections are designed she works tirelessly to ensure that they are produced to the highest quality standards.
Emily’s goal is to help women everywhere feel fabulously confident and comfortable in their skin and lives. She is encouraged to make each collection better than the last each time she sees someone joyously wearing items from her collections.
