Emmy Rossum, starring actress of my new favorite show Shameless, and fashion designer Eli Tahari, have unveiled the ‘Emmy Bag’, the result of a design collaboration between the two.

The bag was born out of Emmy Rossum’s “constructive criticism” to the designer after years of having her Eli Tahari bags tailored to her liking.

Emma explained:

I grew up singing in choirs at the Met Opera. When a new director would come in and have a new production…we got to work with our costumer to pick out our fabrics. It was a creative process behind the scenes, it was very exciting, and I always felt at home there.

So being part of that creative process [with Tahari], touching the leathers, picking the fabrics, thinking ‘What would I really want to wear?’ was great.

The Eli Tahari bags will be available in March and will retail between $398 to $798.

A portion of all proceeds will go to the charity Safe Horizon.
