Emma Fielden, is a milliner whose intricate designs have graced some of the best dressed in Britain. Recently featured in Vogue, it’s no wonder her profile is rapidly on the rise, with her beautiful new collection oozing glitter and hard edged glamour just in time for Christmas.
Emma Fielden studied Fashion at Cheltenham School of Art before specialising in Millinery at Kensington and Chelsea College, achieving a distinction in both courses. While studying, she also trained under the Royal Milliner, Philip Somerville. She went on to work for respected milliners, Gilly Forge and Christine Bec, and as a designer for Siggi, before setting up her own label from her then Brixton based studio. Her regular appearances in British and Italian Vogue, Marie Claire and Harpers, among others, has thrust her into the limelight and further increased her fast-growing popularity.
Emma has designed for numerous celebrities including Roisin Murphy, Cerys Matthews, Beth Orton, Christina Aguilera, Sophie Ellis Bextor and, most recently, Dannii Minogue, Emma was commissioned to design pieces for Dannii to wear to Kylie’s OBE ceremony, as well as for her judging role on Australia’s Got Talent. Further outlining Emma’s significance in millinery design, she was also commissioned by McQueen to create pieces to complement his McQ diffusion line.
Since then, Emma has continued to hand-make her millinery marvels to suit every occasion or event. The transition from the summer races to cold winter months has been made evident in Emma’s new winter wonderland style collection.
As seen on Keira Gormley in a recent shoot for fashion brand Jarlo, the new collection Is all about offering something special and unique to your wardrobe. The crystal diamante lips head-piece sits elegantly to the side of the head.
For something a little more spectacular, Emma’s dramatic, sculptured feather and flower pieces are glamour with an edge. The black feather headband is sure to be a conversation-starter at any party, larger than most of Emma’s other designs, the feathers sit like a side-hat and shimmer in the light with metallic shades of deep peacock greens and black. The sixties inspired sculptural flower pieces are eye catching, in bold colours including fuchsia, turquoise and lime green, perfect for adding a statement piece to any outfit.

The mirror panels indicate that it’s party time but the bow adds a womanly touch, perfect to team with an LBD for a special occasion.
