EMM KUO

Emm Kuo is a designer accessories brand founded by Emmaline Kuo Ranzman in 2011 and is based in New York City. Ranzman’s aesthetic has been strongly influenced by architecture and modernist artists of our time. This can be seen in her designs by the use of organic, raw materials exposed through strong textural contrasts.

The Evening Collection pays tribute to some of Ranzman’s most influential architects including Frank Gehry and Zada Hadid. She also draws influence from the museums that house some of the world’s greatest art such as the Tate Modern, Guggenheim and Bilbao.Ranzman’s unique way of mixing natural materials such a mother of pearl, leather, wood and steel have made her designs coveted for both red carpet events and editorial shoots as well as a VIP clientele.
