#BeTomorrow Stylist | DANIEL PACIOCCO
Daniel grew up on the Gold Coast, and moved to Melbourne with his family as a young teen.
"I'm so grateful for this, as I have loved growing up in the one of the world's greatest cities. The diverse culture and creative hubs of Melbourne have inspired my creativity, and influenced my love of fashion. The defined seasons allow style to adapt and develop, and I love how this is celebrated in Melbourne."
As a child Daniel was always captivated by what people were wearing, whether it be in the media, or just a family member.
"I would always sit there sketching, or scrap booking looks from 90's supermodels, even making dresses out of socks for dolls - I'd ask people "where is she going today?" then I would dress the doll up accordingly and prance her around!"
It wasn't untill he was 26, after working as a Visual Merchandiser in retail, he found himself unemployed.
"I knew I wanted to continue a career in fashion, but I couldn't handle the restraints within the role. With the support of my loved ones, and the opportunities to collaborate with friends in the creative industry, I began to build my styling portfolio."
6 years later, and Daniel is styling the AW17 Campaign for Emporium Melbourne!
"Just to be considered was an honour, so to be on board for this means so much to me. As an already iconic shopping destination, Emporium houses a variety of respected retailers and is a consumers playground. As a stylist, having the opportunity to play and create inspiring images to represent the centre is amazing! Doing so in collaboration with other emerging creative talent is even better, and I am beyond thankful to Emporium for giving us this platform to display our work."
From here-on Daniel intends to establish himself as a respected and identifiable stylist within Melbourne, then throughout Australia, then the world.
"Fashion is limitless, opportunities are endless, and we can achieve all that we dream of - but it takes a shit load of work and positive mantras to make it a reality!"
Daniel is currently living in Newport, but will be moving North side shortly.
