EMMA TUDOR BLOCH
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
