Born as the oldest of three sisters, Emma Gelaude studies Human Science in high school and continues with Psychology at Ghent University.

She goes to art school in her free time for nearly 7 years and has a profound interest for aesthetics. Living partly in Milan to proceed a modelling career, she gets inspired by the fashion industry to do her own thing in life.

In 2007, at age 21, Emma launches a premium personal styling & shopping agency. Because she has no pr budget, she also starts an online blog sharing outfits, styling tips and inspiration in order to spread the word. Belgium’s first fashion blog becomes an instant success and wins 2 awards.

Many opportunities in media, modeling and design follow.

Emma carefully selects the right partners and creates blog campaigns with Jean Paul Gaultier, Agent Provocateur, YSL, E-bay, Chanel, Cartier, Land Rover and many more.

She was the co-founder of Ghent Fashion Night and briefly involved with the organization of a highly anticipated 3-day shopping event at the Belgian Coast, Knokke Fashion Weekend. The EMMA Styling Corner traveled around the country restyling men/woman at fairs. For M.A.C. Cosmetics she selected her own eye shadow pallette and with Diamanti Per Tutti a jewellery line was launched.

In 2017 she writes her second book, Make My Dream Work, published by Manteau. 10 years business, blogging & fashion is her story as a fashion entrepreneur and tells about the highs, the lows and the learnings of running your own business.

In 2018 she becomes an official Marie Claire columnist for both print & online.

Yet 2018 also marks the end of an era.

Emma will use her experience & expertise from the last 10years to open the door for new adventures in 2019.

The collaboration with L’officiël as their official ambassador is a first step.
