Emma Blythe is an American London based menswear fashion designer and upcycling artist. Her work researches the ways in which fashion can be used as a positive force within the discourse on gender inequality and cultural harm.

Aware of the power of emotional memory and the need for slow, sustainable


fashion, Emma is researching ways to repurpose old and used items that she finds expressive to subvert their original purpose in order to reimagine a positive future with items from a recognisable past.

Currently working and making in East London, Emma Blythe’s practice crosses fields of garment design, creative content creation, and research.
