Emily, founder and creative director of RUNE, was born in Seoul, Korea and adopted to the US at the age of five. Driven by her creativity and passion for drawing, both of which were nurtured from a young age, Emily attended Tyler School of Art, one of the most prestigious art universities in the United States. Graduating with a BFA in Art History & Fine Arts, she packed her bags and moved to New York City, destined to start something of her own that would merge her love of art and fashion. Over the past 7 years, Emily has continued to expand her knowledge of and interest in the fashion industry, managing sales for major contemporary lines. RUNE, Emily’s new collection, is the product of her love of design and insight into the fashion world. RUNE features a line of fashion leggings that would satisfy even the most discerning customer. Emily finds inspiration in her “RUNE Girl,” a modern, savvy, adventurous girl who defines her own identity and style. Made from a special fiber called Supplex that contains a 4-way stretch and thickness and is known for its ability to hold its shape and color over time, RUNE leggings fill a niche in the market place for wearable, slimming, fashionable leggings that do not break the bank. Inspired by Emily’s inner “rocker mom,” RUNE’s Fall 2013 Collection has recently hit the market, with leggings that make her feel great, whether at home in New Jersey with her toddler or tackling business in bustling Manhattan. “I just wanted to feel empowered and wearing leggings makes me feel like I can take on the world…comfortably!” Designed, sourced, and manufactured entirely in New York City’s Garment District, RUNE quickly won the hearts of major retailers following its debut in early 2013.
