Media Bio: Allie Yoko is the founder of Emerald Brand Fashions and a Senior Design

Earth" Capstone Project, Allie created Emerald Brand Fashions to fund her passion.
Allie's "Love the Earth" mission is to preserve the environment for future generations and
educate others on ways they can make a difference.
While doing research on ways to reduce the wasteful use of our natural resources she
discovered the many benefits (blackorchidfashion.com/advantage.html) of bamboo.
Now, as part of Allie's mission she wants to help educate people on the benefits of
bamboo fiber for clothing as well as promoting sustainability, saving the earth, and ways
we can all reduce our carbon footprint (www.blackorchidfashion.com/ourcause.html).

domestic garment manufacturers to support the ailing U.S. garment industry. Her limited
edition Black Orchid Fashion leggings and hoodie are made with certified bamboo yarn made into fabric in the U.S. and her
products are produced in California.
