The next ‘KNOWLEDGE IS POWER’ guest speaker is Fashion Textiles Designer Emma Greenhill. After the talk and Q&A we will also have the opportunity to examine wonderful examples of her work.
Emma Greenhill has worked for the past twenty years for designers such a Karl Lagerfeld, John Galliano, Hussein Chalayan, Luella and Julien MacDonald. As a In-House PR she was known for her bold thinking and creative solutions which she has translated into her own label, launched in 2014.
Emma’s scarf designs emanate from “characters and made-up stories that dance in her head”. She then transfers these stories to paper utilising mixed media, collage and motif. These are then printed onto a variety of luxurious fabrics, which are sold within the UK or are exported as far as Japan.
All students are welcome to join us 16.00-17.00, Thursday 17th October, Lecture Theatre A

Congratulations to Fashion Textiles Award winner Keyan (@liukeyan34) Liu.
Keyan Liu’s collection is a wonderful digital collage of patterned stories inspired by Keyan’s journey to Istanbul. Keyan created her own print collection which she curated into a vibrant collection reminiscent of Eley Kishimoto meets early Cacharel. The collection was produced with the notion of eliminating waste with some garments cut using 0 waste pattern cutting techniques and materials emanating from recycled sources.
Congratulations to Fashion Direction Award winner Tianyu (@hercklee) Li
Tianyu (Herck) Li’s menswear collection is a sympathetic blend of the conceptual and functional. With a starting point of analysing a specific set of dreams and the impact of the European Renaissance and Industrial Revolution period, the process continued through interpreting these elements into fabrics, colour and tailoring techniques without losing the constant vision that the workmanship should be elegant and wearable.
“Use the eyes to record the world and feel the world with your heart.” Tianyu (Herck) Li
