NEWS| Emma J Shipley part of Graham and Brown's New Wave project

Emma J Shipley is one of 12 designers selected for Graham and Brown's New Wave project. As part of the initiative, Emma will be launching two new wallpaper designs based on 'what British Pattern means to me'.

New Wave is a collaborative project between Graham & Brown and design journalist Barbara Chandler who have selected 12 designers across a wide range of industries (from fashion, illustration and graffiti, to new designers with their own emerging labels). Graham & Brown and Barbara Chandler have selected 15 designs to launch as part of New Wave project and selected two of Emma J Shipley's designs. 

Fashion Scout caught up with Emma and spoke to her about this news: 
"I'm really excited to be working with Graham & Brown, which will enable me to bring my signature design style to a wider audience for the home. I hope my designs will stand out from wallpapers currently on the market, with an unconventional and fantastical take on traditional British pattern, inspired by the unique beauty of the natural world"

The designs will be launched later this year, keep up to date by following Emma J Shipley on Twitter.
