EMILY CURRENT, Los Angeles-based celebrity stylist, consultant and designer met her business partner and fellow board member Meritt Elliott while they were both attending UCLA. Together they established MAUDE, a fashion alias, started the “boyfriend jeans” craze with Current/Elliott and recently launched The Great clothing line. They have created an interior décor line for PBTeen and also designed a luggage and bag line, dubbed The Westward by Emily and Meritt for Kate Spade. In celebration of the project, Kate Spade made a generous donation to PHASE ONE. Emily joined the board in 2012.
