A Little About Me
Hi, I am Emma Stevens, owner, designer, seamstress and everything in between of Untamed Fernie.
I proudly design and make affordable, beautiful long tops to wear over leggings from super soft, breathable bamboo fabric.
I want the Untamed message to be confident and fun, strong and playful. I want my customers to look in the mirror and like what they see, to look past the negative and be proud of the positive.
It's about looking good, feeling great and doing it in a positive way that always makes you smile
How It Began
I got tired of not finding anything cool, flattering, and long to wear with tights, so I decided I would learn how to make my own.
I went to Fashion Design school near Calgary, AB, to learn; well, I had to learn everything because I could not even sew in a straight line. I had spent the last 10 years travelling not sewing!
Fashion School was fun, long, crazy, intense, stressful, and I loved it, met amazing people and learned so much.
After graduating, I moved to Fernie, BC, excited to design clothes for real women. Now lets make some long tops ...
Clothing You Can Live In, Feel Good About And Look Fabulous In
I love creating clothing for everyday life, which is practical and comfortable but also fun, flattering and unique.
I am passionate about keeping things local, helping the environment, keeping costs low, quality high and helping women, no matter their body shape, fall in love with what they see in the mirror.
I love travelling around western Canada, selling my fun, unique creations at different shows and festivals, spreading the word that there is eco-friendly clothing that you can wear with tights that makes your bum look amazing!
Proudly Slow Fashion
Untamed is proud to be a part of the Slow Fashion movement; we believe that you can get affordable, good quality, fabulous clothing that is also good for the planet.
Slow fashion is a movement focused on improving sustainability by challenging the industry's social cultures and encouraging retailers and consumers to take a more ethical approach to fashion.
As the industry accelerates and its carbon footprint, there's never been a more critical time to consider your purchase choices.
Good For You And The Planet
The advantages of slow fashion are countless
- It lasts longer;
- It offers a unique style;
- There is less pollution;
- It has less impact on society;
- It helps grow the local economy
Currently, 80% of all clothing produced eventually ends up in landfill sites.
Good Quality That Feels Fabulous
The fabric that we use at Untamed comes from Kendor Textiles in Vancouver, and we love their passion for doing everything they can to help the environment.

We only make to order, so yes your design takes a little longer to get to you, but at least we never have leftover stock that goes into a landfill. We are proud to say that we keep waste low and the environment in mind in every business aspect.
We don't design clothes for a specific season or event; we design clothes that you can wear all year round that fit your lifestyle.
Don't cover up; wear clothes that fit, flatter and make you feel fabulous.
The sleeveless designs are perfect in summer as a beach cover up, out for lunch or a BBQ with friends. Add a long-sleeved top underneath or a cute jacket over the top.
The sleeved ones are just perfect all year because they are so cosy when it cools down in the summer, after boating, camping, skiing, out for lunch, having an evening picnic, or running around after the kids or dogs.
As a bonus, the fabric is super soft, the designs are incredibly flattering, long, comfortable AND they make your bum look amazing! Oh, and designed and made with love in Canada by ME!.
