Emma Hope opened her first shoe shop back in 1986 in Islington - London, ten years on and a second branch opened in Chelsea which moved on two years later to Sloane Square. Seven years ago, Emma Hope launched her third shoe boutique on Westbourne Grove in London's trendy Notting Hill. These shops have consolidated Emma Hope's position as one of the most exciting shoe designers in the UK today. The range has now expanded to include a men's range and a fabulous handbag and overnight bag collection.
Emma Hope's shoes, boots and sandals are designed to compliment all areas of your life from businesswear, daywear, casual wear - including her designer sneaker range to wedding shoes and eveningwear, with the handbags, laptop bags and weekend bags to match, all using the same materials and quality of craftsmanship. It's all in the detail and Emma Hope sources the finest leathers, brocades, suedes and the softest nappa to provide quality and comfort.
Emma Hope's shoe and handbag collections are crafted in Florence in Italy. Traditionally, probably the finest area in Europe for shoe and bag manufacture, artisans in this area use techniques that have been passed down through generations.
Emma Hope's shoes have adorned the catwalks and collections of some of the best known designers. She has created shoes for Paul Smith, Nicole Farhi, Jean Muir, Mulbery and Betty Jackson.
Emma Hope's collections can now be sourced in discerning shops and boutiques worldwide including America, Japan, Italy, Germany, Saudi Arabia and Australia.
