THE MUSIC ROOMS - MAYFAIR, LONDON UK

Aemilia Couture  copy.jpg

"The event was a great success I am really pleased with how it went" 

The event was widely attendedwith over 120 guests signed in on the door. Highlights for me included the attendance of many key media titles such as fashion and lifestyle editorial representatives from FT How to Spend it, Evening Standard, The Guardian, Marie Claire, Daily Express, Hello Magazine, Town & Country Magazine, YOU magazine, ELLE UK, Good Housekeeping, Reveal and Now Magazine. 

Due to the nature of the current media industry many leading fashion & beauty editors are leaving their full time roles, are now going freelance to work across several titles it was great to see that our event had attracted the attendance of many key freelance editors including Shelly Vella (Ex Cosmopolitan, soon to fashion director at YOU magazine / Mail on Sunday) Julia May Morgan (Ex Woman & Home Fashion Director working now at Marie Claire, Elle) Gilly Ferguson (Ex Look Magazine Fashion Editor working Refinery 59 and many other) and Lucy Felton (Ex Look Magazine Fashion Director works across mother, baby titles and own blog)

It was great to see a few celebrity familiar faces and a few new ones including Nancy Sorrell (model, wife of Vic Reeves), Pandora Sykes (KISS FM) Hayely Sparks (ITV Presenter) Olivia Coxx (DJ, Presenter) Sean Sagar (BBC Our Girl Actor) and Georgie Clarke (MTV Survival of the Fittest) 

Press Day’s naturally attract attention from bloggers and influencers, the organiser ensured the guests who attended covered across the board of fashion, beauty and lifestyle ladies and men’s, and kids. There was alot of social media activity already from these guests and hope to see this will continue when they may blog about or feature the brands across their platforms.

ABOUT THE COLLECTION


Founder Emily Colley comments, ‘This season sensual dressing becomes more introspective: the appeal of lingerie dressing moves beyond themes of seduction and special occasions, and is appreciated purely for how it can make the wearer feel.

We offer bespoke, custom requests & personalisation to our clients, enabling customers to explore a diverse range of exclusive materials & trims for sizes 6-26 available in petite, regular & tall lengths’.

The new collection features dark, sensual and luxurious designs, with an arrangement of deep, rich jewel palettes inspired by the Middle Eastern opulence. Darkest tones of inky blue sapphire, emerald green and jewel have a shadowy, moody quality, presenting seductive alternatives to black. These colour ways are complimented by a distinctive, timeless Aemilia floral print. Showcased in a striking arrangement of luxury and contemporary silhouette forms, modern elevated styles, with decadently placed lace create a sophisticated yet fresh look, reflecting a sense of refinement and luxury. 

Silhouette combinations take a romantic, and nostalgic feel with transitional designs glamorous enough for after hours.  Taking inspiration from the 1920’s and 30’s era classic silk and lace lingerie sets and sleepwear pieces hold charming feminine appeal, enhanced by intricate lace inserts across the décolleté setting a romantic mood, whilst showcasing traditional technique and couture craftsmanship. Seductive night wear sets, slip dresses, pjyamas and gowns are cut in timeless, classic minimalist silhouettes and become more elegant with intricate French lace details finished by hand, accentuated with plunging necklines and cut away hems. Beautifully luxurious accompanying lingerie sets can be styled and layered with decedent loungewear pieces. 

Our prints for each season tell a story, which adds to the desire and longevity of the collections. The new distinctive A/A 18 print is titled, ‘ Jardin de la Nuit’ which was developed with inspiration drawn from the natural world, captures the dark romance of a garden in the midnight darkness where the moon highlights elements of moody blooms and botanicals. This is a classic, timeless print featuring an arrangement of dark, opulent and luxurious colours set against velvety rich textiles in rich jewel tones jewel tones layered with a beautifully elegant hand painted floral pattern. Each print we produce has been hand drawn in house using beautiful indian inks and watercolours, elevated with layered subtle hints and abstract interpretations worked into a digital format, making for a collection that appeals to every size, age and taste. We want each piece to be cared for and loved, and kept forever.

Apr 9, 2018 | Lingerie & Swimwear Designer Profiles |

designer profile emily colley

 

I am Emily Colley and I am the founder & creative director of the new luxury lingerie & loungewear brand AEMILIA Couture.

After four years working in the fashion industry with a background of designing & manufacturing garments for luxury designers & retail brands, one year ago a started my journey to become a lingerie & nightwear designer/dressmaker for my own luxury label.

What inspired you to become a lingerie designer?

I have always loved to travel to fashion exhibitions, art galleries and flea markets all over the World, and take inspiration, swatches and sketch ideas. I have a love of luxurious textures and quality craftsmanship from a bygone era and have always researched heritage techniques. After studying Fashion Design, dressmaking and the art of couture within ladies clothing at University, my own desire for creating classic, captivating ladies lingerie & sleepwear inspired by the boudoir era of the 1920’s & 30’s, where garments exuded decadence & femininity began.

What makes your designs different from others?

At AEMILIA Couture my aim has always been to create beautiful garments made for women, by women designed & hand crafted in England. We offer bespoke, custom requests & personalisation to our clients, enabling customers to explore a diverse range of exclusive materials & trims for sizes 6-26 available in petite, regular & tall lengths.

Each print is designed and researched carefully, all of which are hand drawn, and printed in England, I really enjoy creating them, as they tell a story, which adds to the desire and distinguishability of my collections.

Are there any celebrities wearing your designs and who are they?

In January we showcased S/S18 ‘AMARA’ Collection at a press day where influencers, stylists, celebs and bloggers viewed the range which was very exciting. Thus, we have just appointed CiCI PR to represent AEMILIA Couture, so fingers crossed we will see celebrities wearing the new collections this year.

Do you wear your own products?

Yes, of course. I have just been on holiday and wore the ‘Amara printed silk kimono’ and ‘Amara printed night shirt’ which are transitional designs that can be styled for either evening to daywear. I also love wearing the Amara Oyster camisole set on a chilled weekend getaway, as the pearlescent soft silk makes you feel beautifully feminine and elegant inside and out.

What’s your favourite lingerie brand (not your own!) and why?

I have always admired Couture lingerie designer, Carine Gilson. Her collections are timeless and classic, and the workmanship and technique particularly  how they inlay lace is so intricate and exquisite. Carine has just started introducing beautiful exotic prints into loungewear, which are divine.

Do you think there’s enough choice for D+ sizes?

We make bralettes which go up to a C cup and underwire bras to an 38 E cup, though we do not specialise in larger sizes as this is a specialist area. We get requests very often for custom made soft cup bras from customers all over the world in larger sizes. I think it is great that there has recently been an increase in British lingerie brands that specialise in D+ sizes, as this was an area that had previously not been explored enough, and their designs are becoming more beautiful and diverse.

Are you happy with the way lingerie is sized? If not what changes would you like to see?

Every woman’s shape is different. The average size in the UK Is a 16 and lingerie can be a difficult garment to fit universally and it can be frustrating for women when they vary in bra size depending on which brand they choose. We aim to provide helpful guides to both male and female clients about how to measure, and how to select the right size dependent on style and fit.

What advice would to give to an aspiring lingerie/swimwear designer?

Know your customer well, and carry out essential initial research into the product sector and market to ensure there is a niche before you develop your brand. Also – never loose sight of your dreams and aspirations.

How do you get your inspirations for new collections?

I feel I am most inspired when I am exploring renowned galleries such as the V&A in London, venturing behind the scenes to view and analysing vintage couture pieces from the 1920’s/30’s. This was such a beautifully feminine era and the pinnacle point in time for lingerie design. I find it so exciting and refreshing being around creative people in these environments.

Do you use paper and pencil to design your first draft or is it all done on computer?

All my designs and illustrations begin with pencil and paper, and then drape lace and silk on a bust form giving life to that initial idea, until I reach the stage where I need to do technical drawings for production. My bespoke prints for each season begin by hand, and then I manipulate and develop them on software packages ready for print.

What would you be doing if you weren’t a designer?

I am naturally a creative and would always want to be doing something design or art related. However, living on a farm I have developed a great interest in caring for animals so maybe I would of studied veterinary?

What are you working on right now?

We have just completed the A/W 18 ‘ARIANA’ Collection featuring the ‘Jardin de la Nuit’ print which will be released from September this year. We are focusing on raising the profile and awareness of the brand to both trade and consumers, working with our appointed PR company, and planning trade exhibition spaces for 2019 which is very exciting.

What makes a great lingerie model?

I would say someone who feels comfortable in their own skin and at ease with the camera. Someone who can showcase your products and convey the image that you want effortlessly.
