Emma J Shipley is a graphic artist specialising in fine drawing, luxury scarves and womenswear; taking inspiration from patterns in nature, their innate irregularity and the mathematical structures behind them. Emma painstakingly draws each design by hand in pencil, fusing highly skilled draftsmanship with a subversive imagination; capturing nature’s unpredictable beauty.
Emma studied at the prestigious Royal College of Art and was awarded a number of prizes during her studies, in particular for excellence in drawing and her use of colour. On graduating in 2011, the famous London boutique Browns bought her graduate collection of printed silk scarves. Following on from this success, more recently Emma J Shipley has won the Emerging Fashion Brand prize at the WGSN Global Fashion Awards and the RISE Newcomer Award at the UK Fashion & Textile Awards, presented by HRH Princess Anne.
Emma Shipley ASGFA was elected an Associate in May 2016.
