Interview with Emily Daccarett
Can music exist without the influence of fashion?
For designer Emily Daccarett fashion and music can not be separated. Daccarett creates an immersive world of storytelling through music, film, and fashion. 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 give her audience the chance to step into those stories and experience it themselves. She graduated from Instituto Marangoni in Paris and the prestigious Ecole De La Chambre Syndicale de La Couture Parisienne, where she trained in the French technique of draping and pattern making. Soon after graduated from the Musicians Institute in Los Angeles. She made her runway debut with Concept Shows during LA Fashion Week. Now she is pushing the boundaries of her imagination through synth-pop. Think of Blondie and David Lynch having a baby in 2020 and that's the direction her music takes.
Check out Emmy's chat with Emily below:
Emmy: How would you describe your genre to someone who isn't familiar with your music?
Emily: It’s a blend of 80’s pop, synth-based, and 70’s rock with a cinematic flair.
Emmy: How did the band form?
Emily: We all went to music school together and were friends first. Coming together to jam is the best, it’s so fun and doesn’t feel like work.
Emmy: What are some of the artists that influence you? Emily: David Bowie, Blondie, Vanessa Paradis, Michael Jackson, Carla Bruni, Lana Del Rey Kate Bush
Emmy: If you could tour with any artist or band (still active or not) who would it be?
Emily: I would love to tour with Lana Del Rey
Emmy: What's your favorite show you've played?
Emily:My favourite show to date is one I played in the Hollywood Hills. We were overlooking the entire LA skyline and in this castle like venue. It felt like a private show straight out of the 70’s.
Emmy: What's the future hold for the band?
Emily: Right now, I’ve just released a new single “Love Chain” and I’ve started working on a follow up album to my ep “Cannibal”. I’m very excited about the concept and the people I will be collaborating with. I’m working on some great visual content and working on some music videos. 2020 is about creating, I feel like I made a solid foundation with the release of my ep, and now it’s the time to expand on it.
