Born in England and growing up in both Denmark and the States, Jemma graduated in 2011 from AAU on a full scholarship with a BFA in Knitwear design. Inspired by the beauty and texture of knitwear, as well as a love for working with color, she specialized in knits due to their durability and comfort.
As a supporter of non-disposable fashion, she appreciates that knitwear can be not only attractive, but also practical and timeless. For Jemma, the belief that everyone should feel good when they get dressed means that, in addition to liking how their clothes look, they should be comfortable in them.
Her work is also informed by her earlier education in sustainable agriculture. This led to an interest in eco-fashion and experience with Spiritex Organic Apparel.
Equipped with a good eye for color and design, Jemma is also technically gifted, with competence in hand knitting, crochet, and all knitwear machines including Stoll. While pursuing her degree, she worked as a manager and buyer for a boutique in San Francisco. During this time she also gained experience in modeling and developed a passion for styling. She worked on shoots for several boutiques, as well as Banana Republic, while also styling the images for her own designs.
Equally adept as a designer or professional stylist, Jemma makes a bright and irreplaceable mark on any project, bringing dedication, vision, and true passion to all her work.
