EMELIA D is a lively ready-to-wear brand founded in 2019 by Emelia Dorcas Mutombo when she was in her second year of fashion studies. When the COVID-19 pandemic started, the brand was terribly impacted and took a pause. After Emelia completed her studies with two fashion degrees and graduated in March 2022, she restarted her brand again.
EMELIA D brand is solely inspired by the dream of an African child, the astonishing African stories, and Congolese cultures. The brand was born from Emelia’s deep yearning to tell and share the unique stories, cultures, and textiles, of her home country, the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Each EMELIA D collection offers and celebrates a rich African story, culture, and heritage. We focus on developing comfortable, elegant, and well-made garments embracing vibrant colours and prints that consistently attract and leave a smile on the faces of the men and women they are made for.
