Emma Burton creates clothes, scarves and bags from fabrics that are printed with her own photography. She takes photos of a vast range of subjects from nature to vintage jewellery and collages the images together to create the unique designs. The printing process uses digital technology that prints directly onto natural fabrics such as silk, viscose jersey, bamboo and Tencel.
Emma was born in Newcastle Upon Tyne where she completed a BA (Hons) in fashion design at Northumbria University. She then gained an MA in Mixed Media Textiles from the Royal College of Art in London. She has since worked for fashion houses such as Burberry and Alexander McQueen and she has sold her textile designs to fashion labels worldwide. She now lives and works in Whitstable, Kent.
