There is nothing we love more than an emerging creative talent, unless that talent is one of our closest friends. Denise Daly has had a variety of experiences both in life and in the fashion world. She has seen on both sides of the camera, first as a model signed with the super agency FORD models making her mark in South America as a brunette bombshell, and picking up the brush to create some of our most favorite painted faces in the industry.
Denise is a bicoastal force to be reckoned with who has held down positions that most would work a lifetime to achieve, but to Denise her personal well-being and work always come first. When you first meet Denise it is a full frontal assault of energy and laughter, but behind the personality lies a professional mindset with the charisma to match.
Denise prides herself in staying true to her personal style and progression in the fashion industry. She holds a characteristic that most people could only dream of, an understanding that life is too short to squander away. When she finds herself in a situation that is detrimental to her personal and professional growth she throws caution to the wind and sets off on her next conquest. If that means leaving a high paying position to wait tables and build up her book, or breaking free of the hustle of the city to spend time at an Ashram, Denise always finds a way to center herself.
Denise has a wide variety of talents and work that spans from commercial to editorial. Her work for Italian Vogue as a stylist and makeup artist was recently featured on Italian Vogue. She is proof that passion and patience pay off and that complacency has no part in successful living. Whether it is her independent projects, her photography, her makeup work, or even teaching yoga classes, Denise brings her own personal style to the surface. If more people in the industry were open to collaboration and self promotion the industry would be back on track. Denise is one of a kind and we are looking forward to seeing more of her daily progression.
