Emma is graphic artist specialising in fine drawing, taking inspiration from myths, legends and the unique beauty of the natural world. She painstakingly draws each design by hand in pencil, fusing highly skilled draftsmanship with a subversive imagination; capturing nature’s unpredictable beauty.
Emma's label launched at London Fashion Week in 2012, after Emma graduated from the Royal College of Art. The famous boutique Browns launched Emma’s graduate collection of printed scarves, and more recently Emma J Shipley has won the Emerging Brand prize at the WGSN Global Fashion Awards and the Newcomer Award at the UK Fashion & Textile Awards, presented by HRH Princess Anne. The brand is now stocked in some of the best department stores and boutiques around the world, including Liberty and Fortnums in London.
