Australian born creative Vanessa Emirian is a womenswear fashion and textiles designer currently based in Paris. With a personal philosophy primarily concerned with defending the role of craftsmanship, by utilising hand made and artisanal based processes in her practice, she naturally made the decision to move to Paris, where she completed a MA in Garment Design at L’Institut Francais de la Mode. Prior to this, she graduated with First Class Honours from the University of Technology Sydney in a BA Design in Fashion and Textiles, and also accumulated over 4 years of womenswear fashion and textiles experience in roles based in Sydney and London.
