What’s it like to be plucked by one of the big­gest fash­ion brands to

cus­tom­ize its iconic bags? Lon­don­based il­lus­tra­tor Daisy Emer­son knows first-hand. We chat­ted about her cre­ative process, sar­to­rial lean­ings and what keeps her in­spired.

What do you love most about be­ing

an il­lus­tra­tor? “That I’m able to be cre­ative as my job. When I re­ceive a new com­mis­sion, it’s a chance to think about new ideas and tech­niques, which is al­ways good for the mind. It helps you grow as an artist.”

How would you de­scribe your fash­ion

phi­los­o­phy? “I think I’ve carved out a bit of a uni­form look of black skinny jeans, a white tee, a leather biker jacket and Su­perga plat­forms—but it’s a look I al­ways tend to grav­i­tate to­ward. I think fash­ion is about feel­ing good and com­fort­able in what you’ve got on.”

What was your favourite thing about work­ing on this

Michael Kors cam­paign? “I usu­ally stick to ty­pog­ra­phy in my work, so it was fun to be able to come up with the lit­tle icons and graph­ics!”
