I’m Emily Hsu (pronounced “soo”) and I’m the founder and designer of Emily Hsu Designs. As a professional dancer, singer, and actress I’ve performed in over a dozen Broadway musicals in addition to television and film. I’m an avid yogi and I’ve always had a passion for fashion. In 2014 I began sewing leggings for myself when I couldn't find anything on the market that suited all my needs: high performance activewear with superior fit and function, on-trend prints, and an amazing price point. So I designed what has become our signature high-waist legging: a legging with a seamless waistband which creates a sleek, smooth line and stays in place.  

Every season I design pieces that I love and want to wear. I’m obsessed with eye-catching prints and sparkle and luxurious fabrics, and I believe your active wardrobe should complement your many moods and personalities - energetic and playful one day, sophisticated and sleek another. When you wear a piece from Emily Hsu Designs I want you to feel like the star of the show and be inspired to take on the world. You live your life with passion, and your clothing should make a statement and make you feel and look your very best. Even though I love embracing current trends, my pieces are also designed to function and last and be that special item you reach for time and time again to feel confident and gorgeous. They effortlessly transition from studio to street, gym to brunch, or a night out on the town. 

The Emily Hsu Designs collection is proudly made in the USA and is a favorite amongst the Rockettes, Broadway dancers, and top NYC fitness instructors.

Fitness. Fashion. Sweat in style.

The EMILY HSU DESIGNS collection is made with love in the U.S.A.
