Fashion Designer
Award for Patronage 2010 - Gus and Irene Fisher
Emilia Wickstead is “a young designer with a passion for clean lines and the kind of attention to detail typical of made-to-measure tailoring. Delightfully posh.” Vogue Magazine, 2010

Fashion designer Emilia Wickstead has a solid background in the world of fashion, growing up with her mother (also a fashion designer) in Auckland and later moving to Milan as a teen, she went on to graduate in fashion design at London-based Central St. Martin's College. Emilia found her calling early in life but her flair is not the type that can be learned, her pieces are classic and elegant with her signature edge of pleats and polished silhouettes which carry through the entire collection.

Emilia has established herself in London after building up a loyal client base at her home town in New Zealand, her second home Milan and then New York where she spent some time working for a number of renowned fashion designers including Giorgio Armani, Luella, Proenza Schouler and Narciso Rodriquez. Now based in London, Emilia is now focusing on her own designer label and is quickly becoming one of London's rising stars. She has already emerged as the talented designer she is in Vogue and Tatler UK.

Emilia provides clients with a made-to-measure service. Her private showroom is located in the fashionable Chelsea area where her entire range can be viewed by appointment. She runs consultations in New Zealand every 6 months by invitation only and also in New York and Milan by private appointment.
