Great news! The Emma J Shipley team are looking for a super efficient and passionate intern to join our busy studio in Hackney! If you want the chance to gain experience working for a quickly-expanding luxury fashion brand across a range of areas then read on to find out more....


Emma J Shipley is a luxury lifestyle brand known for graphic artistry and imagination. Our fantastical, unconventional and meticulous designs are hand-drawn by Emma in London and printed onto the finest luxury fabrics in Lake Como, Italy, before being finished by hand.

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 J Shipley creates original and subversive pieces that captivate and inspire, to be treasured for years to come…
