Emma Highfield is a luxury lingerie and sleepwear designer based in Auckland, New Zealand.

Long ago, I decided the only way for me to be truly happy in my craft was to work for myself; the Emma Highfield Lingerie brand was born and I have never looked back. I decided to add a bridal collection when searching for lingerie for my own wedding, as I wanted something unique and beautifully crafted.

I want my customers to feel they are purchasing something timeless and special; that’s the beauty of a complete bespoke service and creating something totally unique for each client. All of my bridal pieces are custom made or created and sold in very limited runs.

Bridal lingerie is very special, and I hope to create an experience for brides-to-be.

"My work is inspired by textiles, textures and vintage lingerie aesthetics. No matter what I am doing, I am always being creative. It’s like a switch that never turns off."
"For me, weddings are all about excitement, joy and the beautiful celebration of love and commitment between two people."
"My Grandmothers were hugely influential in my love of fabrics and sewing. As a young girl, they taught me how to hand-stitch, knit, and use a sewing machine."
"When a customer or client spots a discarded design in my sewing studio and shows excitement, it encourages me to re-think previously overlooked concepts."
