“It’s very rewarding spotting my designs on cyclists around the world, receiving great customer feedback or a fantastic product review,” says Emma Green, lead womenswear designer for Rapha in London – creators of quality cycling clothing and accessories.
“I work on both technical cycling apparel for racing and training, as well as a luxury urban collection that merges style and function for city cycling, including jeans made from a bespoke fabric developed especially for cycling.”
After graduating in 2004, Emma worked as a denim designer for Workshop, and a merino apparel design and product manager for Orca before heading to England where she landed her job at Rapha in London.
Emma chose Whitecliffe so she could explore the wide range of art electives on offer alongside her fashion major.
“At Whitecliffe I was able to develop as a designer with the amazing grounding I was taught across all disciplines. I thoroughly enjoyed the mix of academia and creative studies.”
