25 October 2017 by TexSelect in Alumni Stories, Fashion, Home, Interiors & Auto, Sponsors, Judges & Champions
Texprint is so proud to be associated with its alumni, many of whom have created some of the most dynamic brands in the textiles, fashion and interiors worlds.
One such is Emma J Shipley, whose eponymous brand encompasses scarves, accessories, clothing and now an extensive range of beautiful cushions and wallpapers. All feature Emma’s fantastical and intricate hand drawings that take as their starting point myth, legend, history and pop culture. She is truly an inspiration. She is also a member of Texprint’s council.

Emma graduated from the Royal College of Art and won her place on the Texprint mentorship programme in 2012. In just a few short years her focus, her creative and media skills, and her ability to collaborate and engage with outstanding partners has enabled her to build a very exciting luxury brand of the future.
Here we have images of Emma’s latest collaborations – with UK-based Clarke & Clarke, a global leader in the home furnishings market, and with two of the world's most iconic London stores, Liberty and Harrods.
From the Clarke & Clarke Animalia collection
The Clarke & Clarke collection, which launches January 2018, opens up a fantastical ‘Animalia’ world of prowling tigers and iridescent birds, coordinating fabrics and wallpapers, rich velvets, satins and shimmer effects. While the luxury cushion menagerie featured in Harrods' Knightsbridge windows looked equally amazing.
Quite something for a textile designer who graduated just five years ago – emmajshipley.com
