It's been said that "Good clothes open all doors," and perhaps no one knows this to be true more than the entrepreneur who has merged business and fashion. Like Bri Emery, the LA-based art director and creative director behind the lifestyle blog and design studio, Design Love Fest (where she hosts regular workshops for creatives). Launched in 2009, out of an obsession with type and images, Bri has lent her creativity to countless brand campaigns and brings her knack for bright colors and composition to life on her popular Instagram feed.
The color and style maven has found a way to present herself, define her brand, and stand out in a crowded design space. So stop, look, listen, and see what doors open when you do. And be sure to join Bri on panel May 7th at #CreateCultivateDTLA as she outlines her journey to the top.

WORDS OF ADVICE FOR FELLOW CREATIVE HUSTLERS: When you are a hustler, I think it’s easy to forget to enjoy your successes. I know for me, I will finish a big project and immediately start thinking about what’s next. Why are we working so hard if we can’t pause for a second and be proud of our efforts!? We should all do that more often.
