Designer Emma Embery picks her favourite fashion pieces Fashion designer and vintage lover Emma Embery has selected her five favourite pieces from her current collection and chats to us about her love for all things vintage. ‘Ilium Bolero and necklace’ I wanted to create the feel of lounge wear or evening wear, where you can look sensual out or at home. The bolero is constructed from satin and vintage lace from the early19th century. A timeless look, reminiscent of old-school Hollywood glamour. ‘Lovebird Shawl’ I have always loved embroidery, and I have a great passion for it, itt seems it’s the most natural thing to me when designing. I wanted to design an embroidery that is feminine and romantic. One of my inspiration has been bridal embroidery, which has been used in so many generations and decades of prints and patterns, either for fashion or interiors. I wanted to use the embroidery on a shawl, which can be added and worn to many items, creating different looks whether formal or simply wanting a wrap.
