Today we’d like to introduce you to Daisy Bourez.
Daisy, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
I’m from France. After finishing my studies in international business I left my country to go to London over there I fell in love with fashion and I started to question myself about what if I want to work in fashion. I always loved fashion but I never thought about all the different careers fashion could offer. Growing up in France, I felt like being an artist is not put forward and I was uneducated about this world. Luckily my partner was an artist and felt my passion for this universe and pushed me to go to this direction. Unfortunately, the life in London wasn’t pleasant so I decided to make a try in Los Angeles and rejoined my partner who already had a situation over there. In Los Angeles, I started to look for internships as a stylist/assistant fashion designer. I had the opportunity to worked for a style house in Hollywood where I dressed different actors for red carpet then I worked with many fashion designers who taught me so much in this industry and from all of this, I decided to attend a fashion school to have more skills. Today I designed and I recently worked as a wardrobe for short movie.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It hasn’t been a smooth road. First of all, I left my family, friends and bearings to go the unknown. I had to learned everything about how things work in this country and the first thing was the language. Because my English at that time wasn’t good I couldn’t do anything professionally and couldn’t built a social life. Socializing was the most difficult I felt really lonely and shy that I wouldn’t go out anymore. Because I didn’t have anything material and immaterial to share people weren’t interested knowing me. From the ”It girl” in France, I became the least interesting and my French community in LA has not help me either to felt accepted. They had this snobby attitude to make you feel like you are nothing. In addition to all of that, I had to deal with the immigration to be able to stay in the USA.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I’m a Fashion/ wardrobe designer. In 2016, I made a collection by myself who is called to ”The African print collection” inspired by my roots. From where I come from, I’m really proud of all the experiences I did in Fashion like working with different designers for the LA fashion week and dressing actors for movies. This experience taught me a lot about life and today, five years later I’m really happy to be here. I’m more determined to follow my dream to work for a prestigious fashion company.
We love surprises, fun facts and unexpected stories. Is there something you can share that might surprise us?
Something surprising is that in 2018 I won the Green card in the lottery, it changed my life. I guess I had to live here, haha.
