Designer name: Emilio de la Morena

Origin: Spain

Career highlight: “Having one of my dresses bought and displayed in a permanent exhibition at the Museu Textil e Indumentaria de Barcelona.”

Design background: Emilio studied at Central Saint Martins and the London College of Fashion. He has worked for Rafael Lopez and Jonathan Saunders.

Name three things that are inspiring you for autumn/winter 2009: “The work of Spanish sculptor Eduardo Chillida; pop art; colour.”

What are your design signatures? “Sculptural chic.”

How would you describe the Emilio de la Morena woman? “She is strong and modern. She knows her own mind and is not afraid to stand out; nor is she scared of expressing herself in a vibrant and bold way.”

What is your most recent London discovery? “Bermondsey Street. It is such a cool area full of great places to hang out.”

This year marks London Fashion Week¹s 25th anniversary. What were you up to 25 years ago? “I remember starting school, very nervous about being left there on my own, surrounded by all these strange faces.”

Over the last 25 years, London has built a reputation for outstandingly original fashion. What is it about the capital that makes London fashion so unique? “London is the centre of many things: its history is pivotal to the development of the modern world and its commercial history means it has been a melting pot of cultures and people for a very long time, probably longer than anywhere else. This mix of cultures and people make for a very exciting and exuberant place.
Research and new ideas are easy here: everything is so accessible. London is simply the best place for developing and creating.”
