Kiwi-born fashion designer, Emilia Wickstead is coming home to show at this year’s iD Dunedin Fashion Week in March. Before launching her own made-to-measure business Wickstead, who moved to Milan at the tender age of 14, worked at Giorgio Armani, Proenza Schouler, Narciso Rodriguez and Vogue in New York and Milan. As well as being one of Kate Middleton’s go-to designers, Wickstead’s creations have been worn by Alexa Chung, Poppy Delevingne and Suki Waterhouse.
Wickstead will show pieces from her previous two Autumn-Winter collections at iD Fashion Week. A handful of her couture pieces that have been worn on the red carpet by celebrities are likely to make an appearance on the runway. Wickstead will join the high profile judging panel for the iD International Emerging Designer Awards.
