For the love of it… Looking forward to graduating from my studies at the Academy of Design where I majored in Fashion Design, I feel my journey has only just begun. Through my studies I have developed a signature style with a rich, aesthetic influence of beauty, femininity and all things vintage. With a strong eye for detail and creativity my designs display a uniqueness and rich quality paying close attention to every pieces individuality. Through embellishment, fabric manipulation and craftsmanship I seek that little point of difference to make every garment special. Wishing to establish my Michelle Emma label specialising in women’s special occasion/evening wear, I’m excited for new challenges and dream of one day seeing my designs on runways and red carpets around the world.
