Emma Cook was born in England in 1975. She studied at the University of Brighton, in the U.K. and then at Central St. Martins Fashion college in London. She was in the same 1993 graduating class as Alexander McQueen and Stella McCartney.
She started her career as consultant for Ghost, Martine Sitbon and Liberty. Her hand-painted and embellished garments have a cult following among discerning women.
She began her company in 2000, and was successful right from the beginning. Stockists include Kokon To Zai in London and Beauty By in Paris.
In her first poetic collection, touches of 80's styling combined with gentle draped jersey pieces.
Her designs give a hint of being classics in the making. They are sexy and shy at the same time. Her designs are not marked by seasons, they can be worn again and again for years. They are whimsical yet wearable, pretty without being prissy.
