I honestly believe meeting Emily and founding SAGES was the reason I ended up at London College of Fashion where both I and Emily completed our master's degrees. She studied MA in Fashion Futures a course whose focus places sustainability at the heart of fashion practice. A belief Emily carries forward in all of her work.
Emily has Eight years of working in the fashion industry for market-leading companies such as the Arcadia group (Topshop, Miss Selfridge), Zara and Primark. She is also the Director and owner of her own fashion label. She has a wealth of industry contacts with both small-scale UK producers as well as large-scale manufacturers, mills and dye houses which has proved an invaluable resource in the success of SAGES so far.
What started as an idea constructed during a simple University project has grown into an innovative and game-changing business I am incredibly proud to be a part of and Emily is a business partner I am beyond proud to work with. I am constantly surprised by Emily's dedication and ambition for SAGES she has a way of seeing above and beyond our immediate goals and pushing us forward to heights I admittedly at the time never imagined. And I look forward to seeing where it takes us.
