How would you describe your personal style?
Easy, jeans and a tee, and on lazier days, dare I say... workout leggings.

Journalist.

Spotlight On: DAISY EMERSON

This season, we collaborated with artist and illustrator Daisy Emerson, who hand-painted each of our trendsetter’s bags with personalized illustrations and letterings specific to each girl. Get to know the London-based creative below.

DK_THEWALK-02.06.1725

This was your first trip to LA – what was your favorite thing about it?
The palm trees!
When did you know you wanted to be an artist?
I think I was about 15 and I remember saying,  “I’m going to go to St Martin’s in London.” So when I was 18 I applied, got accepted and moved to London, and that was it. This was the beginning of my journey to being an artist. I’ve done all sorts of creative things in other jobs which lend to the experience I have now.
Your art is very distinctive – how long did it take you to find your signature style? 
It took a while, I didn’t always just work with type and used to paint a lot of portraiture and then developed a bit of a doodling style early on before discovering a love for lettering and then sign painting.
How does your art affect your personal style? 
My personal style is quite far removed from my artwork. I’m the total opposite when it comes to color! I often wear only black, white or gray, so very muted compared to the color palette I use in my artwork. I do love the odd pop of color and I’m obsessed with anything that's metallic silver.
What is your number one tip for making it as an artist? 
Social media has been a great platform for me, especially  Instagram. I’d say always try and post engaging content of a certain level of quality, be consistent in doing so and don’t be afraid to try new things. Always try and be original.
What is always in your handbag? 
My iPhone and a Mac Lady Danger red lipstick.
