British textile brand Emily Burningham lands nightwear deal with Japan’s Wacoal

The British textile brand, Emily Burningham, has struck a new deal with the Japanese manufacturer Wacoal to launch a new collection of nightwear products across the region.

The programme – developed in conjunction with the licensing agency Cosmo Merchandising – adds to an existing range of ceramics, textiles, and stationery products that is already available across Japan.

Cosmo Merchandising has been working in Japan to develop a licensing programme for the Emily Burningham brand, signing partners across a wealth of categories. 

The new nightwear collection has already been well received, especially in the Department Store sector, with elegant displays featuring at the Isetan Group store in Tokyo.

“We are very excited about the opportunities that this new development can help to create both in Japan and here in the UK,” said Shaun Kelly, brand consultant at Cosmo Merchandising.

The Emily Burningham studio aims to create sophisticated print designs. In the UK, the studio manufactures a range of wallpaper and textiles for soft furnishings and light upholstery.

“I am delighted to have Wacoal as a new partner in Japan,” said Burningham. “The quality of this collection is very high and I am sure it will appeal to the discerning Japanese consumer.”
