Outstanding Achievement Award

Emile Vidal Carr

Emile Vidal Carr is a tenacious designer and art director creating highly engineered, vivid and indulgent premium womenswear. “I love architecture” says Emile, “so I use my fascination for structure and translate that into my designs, which adds to our very distinctive style.” The Head Designer and graduate from the prestigious London College of Fashion, set up his first brand in 2003 selling to Topshop, ASOS and Allders, then rebranded and set up Emile Vidal Carr. He has also worked in the sample room for some of the largest design labels in the world such as Alexander McQueen, Roland Mouret and Ralph & Russo. He believes every garment has been engineered and has achieved a strong identity for his products by manufacturing everything in his very own London based factory.
