Transition Your Wardrobe
della terra is an ethical and inclusive brand continuously working towards sustainability. With sustainability, accessibility and inclusivity at the forefront of the brand, we embrace and support all facets of life. Founder & Designer Emily Landsman was inspired to create what was missing from her wardrobe while recovering from COVID-19. These transitional, inclusive styles are completely versatile footwear – della terra is focused on creating real shoes for real people.
During a time when the world of fashion and footwear has consolidated, and become comfort focused at the expense of style, many have given up entirely on aesthetics. della terra brings a fresh, must-have take on fashion that feels accessible and versatile enough to transition your quarantine wardrobe back into the real world from day to night; work to play; urban to weekend!
After receiving her Master of Fine Arts in Fashion Design from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, Emily worked in corporate footwear for nearly sixteen years designing for prestigious fashion brands such as Alice + Olivia, Diane Von Furstenberg, Vera Wang, Vince Camuto, Clarks, and many more.
Landsman established her global consulting firm based in the Boston Seaport, where she specializes in balancing editorial and commercial opportunities for growing brands. She is also the founder and creator of Shoe York City.
I aim to make tech, art and
fashion education more
accessible to everyone
Combining her passion for both the design and technology industries, Landsman introduced a new Footwear Design Program to Boston’s School of Fashion Design, working as lead instructor in Visual Design, UX Design, Marketing, and Project Management at General Assembly Boston. At the same time, Emily took on the role of an advisor for Northeastern’s Scout (Design) Program.
