Emilia bairamova

Emilia is a London-based Womenswear designer specializing in Knitwear. After graduating with a BA 1st class (Hons) in Fashion Design Technology from the London College of Fashion, Emilia went on to complete an MA Fashion course, specialising in knitwear. Emilia's collection, Prozac Nation was inspired by a memoir of the same name by Elizabeth Wurtzel. 'Prozac Nation' is a projection of a complex interpretation of Elizabeth's life while suffering from depression through nine, hand-knitted, dresses. Each dress refers to a particular state of Elizabeth's mind, and together they visualize the process of her reinvention in form of shape, colour and texture.

Exaggerated sleeves, necks and other body parts, unexpected chunky brass zips facilitating the transformation of the garments and a vivid colour palette create an instant impact. Having hand-knitted the entire collection herself, Emilia appreciates the quality of craftsmanship and presents her collection with much sentimental value.
