GET TO KNOW
Hello! Im Alycia, a Welsh designer who is very passionate about bespoke boudoir, corsetry and couture. Having always been enthralled by creating opulent and highly detailed garments, I loved learning as much as I could about the craft.
I graduated with first class honors in Design for Performance at Birmingham Institute of Art and Design and whilst attending university, had the opportunity to work with many wonderful craftspeople to help develop my love of couture corsetry and improve my artistry .
Using these skills, I now craft beautifully bespoke garments, with subtle glimmers, hidden personal details and exquisite textures to make the wearer both look and feel absolutely beautiful.
Emiah is my outlet to produce bespoke luxury creations and manifest my creative thoughts and style into interesting and wearable garments.
Every item is made with love and care, each with its own unique personality.
My elegant and romantic designs often feature beautifully textured embellishments and feature many hours of highly detailed work, which has become a defining signature of mine.
I love to create wearable pieces of art, meant to be cherished.
Emiah aims to blend
art with couture.

'Emiah' comes from the initials of Eudyptula Minor with my initials A and H added onto the end.
'Eudyptula minor' is the scientific title for the smallest breed of penguin in the world, the ‘Little, blue, fairy penguin’.
When I was a child my dad called me 'little penguin' due to my small stature (I like to call it fun sized!) and the distinct 'waddle' I had when I was young. My love for penguins grew from there and even to this day he still calls 'peng' for short!
I thought of no better inspiration than this memory to remind me of when I was a child, filled with big ideas, a wild imagination and a drive to create breathtakingly beautiful objects.
