We are pleased to announce that we will be working with designer Chelsea Handleigh for our spring collection 2012

Some background info on Chelsea

Chelsea is originally from Birmingham and its surrounding areas. Growing up, she was exposed to sewing and the world of textiles by her mum who owned her own business making company uniforms and who also made wedding dresses.

Chelsea was always fascinated by the sewing machine and she enjoyed textile technology while at school. After school, she was accepted at Lincoln College for a diploma in Fashion & Clothing where she perfected her skills at design.

In her spare time, Chelsea enjoys working with animals. She volunteered at a wildlife hospital until she was 17 & now works on her collections from home while her 4 gerbils sit and watch her create wonders. She enjoys visiting vintage fairs and scouring vintage shops for retro clothing & fabrics.

Check out Chelsea's latest collection below:



Like us, Chelsea is obsessed with eco-fashion, which is why she came to our brand direct. Chelsea will be creating a unique printed collection of eco bags for Emi♥ made from hemp and will feature slogan prints based on climate change, poverty & the environment.

We are so pleased to have Chelsea on board with us for our next collection.

Stay tuned for previews and some exclusive give always for these limited edition ranges!

Love Emi♥.

Emi♥ features at X-Pose yourself fashion show in Manchester


Last week, we were invited to show at the X-pose yourself fashion show in Manchester - hosted by the lovely people at Monkey Spanner.

Xander - our designer - couldn't make it at the night, so it was handed over to our lovely campaign director Padraig who took charge of the night and ensured our brand looked amazing on the runway.

This post is dedicated to Padraig, who we think rocked the catwalk almost as much as our 2011 clothing collection did.

Thanks to everyone who showed up at the event, we look forward to bringing you our next collection in the Spring of 2012.

Love Emi♥.

Xander Kostroma @ Emi♥ is named as one of the world's top 200 designers!

We came across a little website today that names some of the world's top designers.

Nestled in at no. 93 was Xander Kostroma - the designer for us here at Emi♥.

Take a look at the site HERE to check out who he beat...and who pipped him to the no.1 spot!

(...pssst Christian La Croix was 95...)

Check below, behind the scenes at the first fashion show Xander showed the brands collection at.



Here he was creating a dress constructed from paper, worn by one of his best friends Plopalina Shitstorm - one of Wales's rising alternative drag acts - where she worked the runway, before tearing off the dress to reveal the main piece of jewellery for the collection.

...it went down a storm!!

X-Pose yourself fashion show run through

video

So, we rocked up at the Klondyke in Levenshulme. You know the kind of pub? Not changed much since the 80's. Very local, for local people. But, it had a great space to play with and the drinks were uber cheap!

Heels? Check.
Mascara? Check.
Lippy? Check.

And the models were off! We have exactly 6 days left now until the show.

We will be showing at the X-pose yourself fashion show in Manchester on Friday 13th May! (Eeeek!! - that film always scares me!)

Anyway, come along and meet Padraig & clare who will be organising the show on the night. Entry is only a £5er! ...and the money goes towards charity.

What are you waiting for?

See you on the runway!

Love Xander @ Emi♥.
