I am Alycia (she/her) and I am a bespoke designer who is very passionate about luxury boudoir, corsetry and couture.


My unique mix of opulence and highly detailed craftsmanship means that I have the skills to create luxurious garment, tailer made to fit you and your style.


I graduated with First Class Honours in Fashion Design: Design for Performance at Birmingham City University. Whilst studying I interned with and learnt from make wonderful and expert craftspeople to develop my craft even further, which helped me develop my own signature style and gave me to tools to create high quality garments for you.


Using these skills, I now create beautiful bespoke garments made with subtle glimmers, hidden personal details and exquisite textures to make sure your inner beauty shines.

The Name

'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.
