A self-con­fessed print and tex­tiles nerd and col­lec­tor of fab­rics, Emma grad­u­ated from the Ed­in­burgh Col­lege of Art in 2014. Mov­ing to Lon­don she be­gan work­ing with Dame Zan­dra Rhodes as her print de­signer and head of tex­tiles where she cre­ated Valentino’s spring/sum­mer 2017 print col­lec­tion.

Now work­ing free­lance from her stu­dio in Ed­in­burgh, Emma works on com­mer­cial tex­tile de­sign, mainly for fash­ion but some­times for in­te­ri­ors. Grow­ing up sur­rounded by Marimekko, retro Habi­tat de­signs and Col­lier Camp­bell’s unique de­signs for Lib­erty, it’s lit­tle won­der that she ‘loves bright, bold up­lift­ing prints’.

‘I love the work I do and find Ed­in­burgh the most per­fect and tran­quil base,’ she says. ‘My work ends up be­ing so var­ied in medium and style as I find I’m al­ways asked for some­thing dif­fer­ent.’ www.em­matu­dor­bloch.com
