For Designer Emily Daccarett, Fashion and Music Cannot Be Separated

Join our chat with artist and fashion designer, Emily Daccarett

For designer Emily Daccarett fashion and music can not be separated. Each artistic direction begins with a beat that forms a story. From the start of her brand, she has fused those worlds together, creating a symbiotic flow between the two. She uses textiles, shapes, and sound as her tools to world building, and gives her audience the chance to step into those stories and experience it themselves.

Hi Emily! How are you taking charge of your music right now? I’ve started to do live shows this month! Which is very different from recording in a studio, so now it’s all about recreating that same vibe from the recording and more. I love to add drama while performing and this is something I’m working on now with my band! I have a couple gigs lined up and I can’t get enough!

How are you charging up for your next release? My next release is Pieces! It’s coming out on November 22nd along with my first official music video! I’m so excited, it’s the first time I’ve produced a music video that includes me! I had always used my music to accompany my short fashion films, but the focus was on my models and designs. It’s been a wonderful experience to be able to express myself in this new way and I really hope you can connect with it!

What is a big declaration you want to make known when it comes to your music? My declaration is that I make music to help inspire my listeners to dream, hope, and escape. I create stories with my songs, and it adds this cinematic quality to the sound that I hope will get you lost deep in your imagination.

Is there more of you as an artist that fans haven't seen yet? Yes definitely! I’m still discovering her myself. With each new project and milestone, I explore and push myself out of my comfort zone. I have always loved performing on stage as a dancer and that is something I want to incorporate in my shows.

What do you have lined up performance wise for your fans? I’m doing an acoustic set in Hollywood on November 21st, another one on December 4th, and our first show as a full band at The Whiskey on December 16th!

Is there something that you could take it or leave it when it comes to the music industry? I love that we have so many resources in our disposal to make it on our own. Indie artists have so much control over their careers and the freedom I have to express myself in any I want, is so liberating.

Before you get into what you'll be making next, what is something that is the deal breaker for you on whether the project gets made? If I’m not happy with or in love with whatever current project I’m working on, then it’s back to square one. I don’t believe in releasing music or visuals that I don’t have an emotional connection to. I’ve surrounded myself with like-minded artists and no matter what we are working on we create a healthy and safe environment, so I have not experienced a moment when I’ve felt I was not being heard, or unsafe. If that were to happen, that would also be a deal breaker for me!
