I’m pretty chuffed that you’ve found your way to Derby & Power!


Hi there, I’m Emily, and Derby & Power is a curated collection of my handmade designs.


I take inspiration from the things I love most in life, and I create handmade pieces to complement them. I love getting dressed up every now and then, cooking and sharing food, creating warm and beautiful spaces within my home, and spending time in the fresh air.


If any of that speaks to you too, there might be a handmade gem waiting for you within the walls of this website!


I hope you enjoy wandering through my collections, and thank you for supporting small  batch and small business! Em x

Millinery is where it all kicked off for Derby & Power!


I love that these pieces serve as the ultimate finishing touch to an outfit, and that they have the power to make the wearer feel incredibly special. Whether it’s a headband to complete a brunch outfit, a spring racing headpiece, or a crown fit for a bride, seeing your beautiful looks come together never fails to put a smile on my face.


Ready-made pieces are available to shop now, and you’re also most welcome to get in touch to discuss your own custom piece!

Unique millinery handmade in Melbourne
Handmade ceramic salad bowl by Derby & Power



I Love Food. And nothing makes me happier than entertaining! This collection of ceramic servingware is designed with sharing in mind – from salad bowls to serving platters, I had long, grazing-style lunches in my thoughts as I developed this range.


Individually, each piece would also make a lovely gift for someone who enjoys making their house a home!


Get in quick – this range is the definition of ‘small batch production’!


PS – keep an eye out for some lace imprints within the range, made using a piece of lace leftover from my first ever millinery collection!

Resin is SUCH a wonderful medium to work with – I really think it’s best described as ‘functional art’. The many depths and layers of pigment in these pieces is truly mesmerising (if I do say so myself!), and the nature of the medium means that the subtle, muted pieces are just as detailed as their brighter counterparts.


Coasters are such an easy way to add instant character to your table, and I’m now also offering made-to-order placement sets to match (just contact me to enquire)!

Resin coasters, handmade in Melbourne
Unique embroidered wall art, handmade in Melbourne



Embroidery is my current favourite hobby (and my pastime of choice for many an evening spent in lockdown!). This range of wall art contrasts the traditional medium of needlework with modern artistic trends, such as line art and the female figure.  And fun fact – the florals in this range are inspired by the pansies in my own garden!


Very much a labour of love (these designs take many hours to make), you can definitely consider this collection to be strictly limited edition!

It's been a ride so far... follow along!

Kind words

The headband is gorgeous and light - would be able to wear it all day. Emily was lovely and really helpful. Looking forward to buying another headband from Derby and Power for the next event :)
