British-based and New Zealand born, spent her formative years in Milan and gained a Bachelors of Arts Degree in Fashion Design and Marketing at Central Saint Martin’s London with Honours in 2007.
After graduating, Emilia worked at fashions houses in New York and Milan before returning to London to establish her own label in 2008. Originally making her name as a made-to-measure atelier, Emilia has expanded her repertoire to include seasonal ready-to-wear collections showcased at London Fashion Week.
At the Emilia Wickstead atelier there are three different shopping possibilities for clientele. READY TO WEAR seasonal garments are available to purchase in set sizes straight from the Atelier, MADE TO ORDER garments can be ordered in set sizes in individual colours and fabric and MADE TO MEASURE bespoke garments are fitted and can be ordered to a client’s specific measurements.
Emilia was shortlisted for the BFC/Vogue Fashion Fund and Dorchester Collection Fashion Prize in 2013.
