I am Delaya Briscoe
I'm a creative person who wanted to blog about her passion. I wanted to make things, talk about the things I made and then make more things. I wanted myself and my craft to be the focus of my blog and this was a problem. At least, in the blogging realm it was.
The notable blogs focus on graphic design, branding, social marketing and how to blog. All of them tell you to give things to your readers, offer them value and teach them something. But what if you don't want to? Or know how to? Or know what to give?
This is where I am.
Don't get me wrong, as a reader, I want you to keep coming back and loving me but trying to be "that blogger" and come up with stuff to offer was stressed work.
Trying to fit into pre-existing ideas of success delayed the success that I could've had already.
The purpose of this site is to creatively and stylistically inspire but also to motivate other creatives out there to do you. To do what you want, in your own way and to own it.
My name is Delaya Briscoe and I'm a fashion designer, illustrator and side hustler, building my brand from the bottom up with a full time job. Mouthful right?!
My day job isn't too fulfilling but I ultimately want to work for myself as a freelance illustrator and run my own clothing brand.
I attended Woodbury University and graduated with a BFA in Fashion Design in 2012.
I currently work as an assistant designer for a license clothing manufacturing company, where we develop clothing with character art for various stores. I work in the Men's and Boys department and have hade designs sold to Old Navy and and the online kids boutique, Chasing Fireflies. I also operate and manage one the companies clothing brands.
My design aesthetic favors an elevated street wear for the minimalistic woman with confidence and an understated cockiness. I play around with modern silhouettes, edgy detailing and contrasting elements. Overall, my designs embrace a mash between fun and strength.
