ABOUT EMILY CURRENT AND MERITT ELLIOTT

Emily Current and Meritt Elliott, a creative team since 1999, are the
celebrated Los Angeles-based duo known for their whimsical and timeless

Spring 2014. In Spring 2015, Emily and Meritt launched their much
anticipated, multi-category women’s collection, aptly named THE GREAT.
