Emily Gimmel is no stranger to style and trendsetting. Before creating her line of designer laptop bags for women, the founder and creative director for GRACESHIP spent ten years working as a TV journalist. She often found herself interviewing some of the most famous and influential people on the planet.

An expert in entertainment and lifestyle coverage, Emily has developed a keen eye for style by covering the biggest fashion and culture events in the world. She's interviewed pop culture icons such as Eva Longoria, Kim Kardashian, Jeremy Piven, Donald Trump, T.I., James Denton, and Carmen Electra, just to name a few.

Emily's love of design and travel helped inspire the look of GRACESHIP's laptop bags for women. Emily is passionate about creating bold, yet refined pieces that complement the lifestyle of today's modern woman. She believes the key to great design lies within the balance of simplicity and the subtle art of detail.
