Hi guys, today I’d like to share with you my exclusive interview with Emma Manley – creative director and designer at Manley. Manley is an Irish fashion brand that reflects edgy and contemporary femininity. Delicate structures are juxtaposed with strong contemporary silhouettes, giving way to an aesthetic that is hard and soft, powerful and preciously delicate at once.

Materials are sourced from the world’s finest luxury houses and innovative manufacturing methods of laser cutting are fused with time-honoured, hand-sewn and embellished detailing.

Bright colours and perfect finishing of Emma Manley Spring Summer 2016 collection caught my eyes, so I decided to introduce myself to Emma and interview her for Yukova fashion blog.View Post
