ABOUT EMILY DANA
Creative Wizard is a bold choice of phrase to describe a person. However, the sheer range of skills and abilities Emily brings to any endeavor allow the title to fit like a glove.
She is skilled in many creative areas, from those typically associated with fashion design like sewing, embroidery, draping, fitting live models, creating patterns, as well as the more technical aspects like flats, specs, and webPDM. She is also skilled in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. In her downtime, she makes bespoke special occasion clothing like gala dresses and wedding gowns, as well as high end costumery.
Emily is a valuable addition to photoshoots. At her most recent company, she was the makeup artist for their Spring/Summer 2020 lookbook. In the past, she has created props and accessories on set, as well as filled in as a clothing and hair stylist. She also has a network of photographers, makeup artists, hair stylists, and photographers ranging in style from commercial to editorial to avant garde.
