Emily’s keen eye for style began at a young age when her beloved Gram would come to visit. She would carefully lay out all her impeccably preserved vintage shoes, silk scarves and costume jewelry for her stay. Emily would make dresses out of the scarves and fasten them together with brooches and wobble around in Gram's heels. "Dress-up" at home was a daily occurrence for Emily and these special moments with Gram pairing what many would consider avant garde looks, turned into a buzzing career straight out of high school. From sewing Barbie clothes and putting on these elaborate fashion shows, to Styling and Art Directing real model runway shows, her journey into the world of fashion evolved into a beautiful love affair. With a Vogue subscription since she was about 16, Emily was enamoured by whose job it was to dress the models in the editorial spreads. At the time she didn’t even know that was the industry term for it.
At 19 Emily attended Blanche MacDonald in Vancouver and received a diploma of Fashion Merchandising. Realizing that education and experience go hand in hand, Emily pursued further academic excellence by attending Ryerson in Toronto, where she spent nearly a decade receiving her degree in Fashion Communications and Design. Emily went on to interning and assisting some of the industry's top stylists.
Emily believes that when you look good, you feel good. Seeing her client’s confidence grow after working with her, is what keeps the love of the job alive. Seeing brands blossom from fresh creative content and campaigns she has styled is one of her biggest rewards.
