Tutor information

Emma Greenhill is a well regarded professional in the fashion world. She has enjoyed a successful career in the fashion industry lasting over two decades as either In-House PR and Creative Director for Fashion Houses - Chalayan, Julie Verhoeven for Gibo, Hockley, John Galliano, Luella, Julien MacDonald and Karl Lagerfeld. With the encouragement of her dearest friends Julie Verhoeven and Hussein Chalayan, whom she met while at John Galliano’s, she has gone back to her roots and has created her own accessories collection.
