After recently being nominated to participate in the second stage of the ASOS Fashion Discovery Competition, British silk scarf designer, Emily Carter will soon be unravelling her SS17 collection. Her collection will be showcased at Scoop International during London Fashion Week Designer Showrooms in September.
Carter is from London and specializes in luxury silk scarves and pocket squares. Her current collection for AW16 is inspired by scientific elements, exotic creatures as well as Victorian taxidermy. Also influencing her designs are her surroundings which include regular trips to The Natural History Museum and The Hunterian Museum.
Carter begins all of her illustrations as individual unique doodles, which then collate together onto one silk scarf square. Each scarf has a narrative behind it; The fox scarf includes all of Carter’s favourite animals, such as foxes, crocodiles and butterflies spiraled together with geometric shapes, giving each scarf a unique message.
