Although there are few English shirt factories left, we are very happy to be celebrating our first Anniversary at The Cross in Gloucester, with our highly skilled team, who all take such pleasure and pride in cutting, sewing and finishing to the very highest standards. The creative process is now an intrinsic part of the spirit of Emma Willis, and my time in the factory is fundamental, as well as inspiring and highly enjoyable.
The success of the factory is of course also very much thanks to our Emma Willis shop and online customers support, Selfridges, Lyle and Scott and Omar Kashoura, who have appreciated and commisioned our work.
We were thrilled to make the exquisite Swiss cotton shirts for Omar Kashoura’s Show at London Fashion Week, where he was awarded New Generation Designer 2011 by The British Fashion Council.
This year ahead promises some exciting new projects which I will keep you in touch with.
