At The Design House London, we specialise in providing the most talented freelance designers bases both in the UK and internationally to our clients.

Emma has worked with us on many projects and even travelled to our clients office to work with the in-house teams on new collections. Our clients love Emma and her designs have been very successful.
We will continue to work with Emma on many more projects as she is great to work with, is always happy and up-beat and loves a challenge.

We at Ello - an Indian premium Kidswear startup brand, were looking for a designer with a European handwriting, who has the ability to adapt their designs for the Kids Indian Clothing market. Emma completely fitted the brief and as a result we have worked with her for 6 consecutive seasons, which has been a real pleasure to work with her professionalism, creativity and knowledge of manufacturing not forgetting her styling skills. Her work is truly inspiring, never late and with high level of commitment and extremely easy to work with. We would recommend anyone who is either established or new brands to work with Emma to take you to the next level in your fashion business.

We really enjoyed working with Emma; her enthusiasm really shows in her work and we really appreciate her approach to working as well as great professionalism right from the beginning.
The main thing with a designer is that you have to “click” to understand each other and I must say, here it worked out great. We are very happy with the collection!

We look forward to working with her in the seasons ahead.

Thank you very much from a delighted customer!

Snowflakes and Sunflowers is a children’s socks and clothing brand. One of my main roles as Director is to make sure our designs fit our concept of fun and elegance. It has been a real pleasure working with Emma. Emma provides clear structure and plans indicating each step of her work and when to expect the designs. In addition to being very good at listening and meeting our design briefs, and understanding the required concepts, Emma is very helpful with advice and ideas coming up with creative and unique designs, which meet our target market. Emma communicates very well and is flexible to our needs. Designs are received on time with a quick turnaround. Emma has very good technical knowledge and provides all the necessary specifications to create the products. I am sure Emma will continue to play a big part in our design development and I look forward to continue working with her.

On our first meeting with Emma at Noon by Noor she instinctively fitted into our team and naturally, without question, fulfilled the brief that she was given. Emma has a positive energy and is a hard working person, hitting every deadline, however ‘challenging’ on time and without fuss. Emma has style and taste and she brought that to every print design brief that she was given. Emma project managed knitwear for us and brought all her skills and knowledge to that brief too. I couldn’t recommend Emma highly enough.

We approached Emma to work with our brand Mafana Kids, as we wanted to create some new designs for the collection. Mafana Kids was launched to improve the lives of people living in poverty in Madagascar by providing regular work at fair reward. Therefore we needed a designer who could aid the suppliers with detailed instruction for any proposed new designs. Emma managed this with a high level of professionalism and was always helpful when responding to any queries from the supplies. Our Madagascan suppliers specialise in embroidery and smocking and Emma encouraged this further with detailed embroidery designs which were beautiful. Emma was really easy to work with and I would highly recommend her services.

My name is Liz Rodgers and I run a fashion design business specialising in the Childrenswear and Denim market, producing a range of trend and inspiration books, as well as taking on a number of design projects for leading retailers.
I have known Emma Brown for over 10 years and have worked closely with her on a number of fashion design projects, both in previous employment and in my current role, and know her to be a professional and conscientious individual. She has worked for my company on a number of freelance design projects and has always been an inspiring and valued addition to the team, using her knowledge and experience to great success. She works well in a team, but is also more than capable of working independently and always meets deadlines promptly.
Emma’s great enthusiasm for fashion, positive outlook, and ability to create both creative and commercial designs means she is a pleasure to work with. I will continue to work with Emma on both ongoing projects and future endeavors, and highly recommend her to anyone needing a reliable experienced Designer.
— Liz Rodgers, Design Director for Styleright kids/baby, and Focus on Denim publications
I have known Emma for nearly 10 years now and she is one of the most talented designers I know. She is quick and precise and she works incredibly hard. She has an incredible skill at producing fantastically realistic drawings of practically anything, from clothing through to toys and accessories. She is adept at interpreting styleguides as well as creating characters and prints from scratch. Her skill to put a range of co-ordinating products together is second to none and she is without a doubt a total asset to any business who uses her.
