In this edition of our Style Profile series, we feature Emilia, a creative professional and CEO of a creative agency. Here she shares her love of life, her glowing personality and some daring looks for business and play!
Name: Emilia Farrace
Occupation: Founder + Creative Director at Simply Elaborate Creative Agency
Lifestyle: On the go, with a full schedule, iPhone in one hand, coffee in the
other, and a smile on – always.
What’s a typical day like for you?
Not typical! Rarely do I have two days that are the same, but that’s where the fun is! I’m always meeting people: potential, current and old clients, friends, family and usually it’s all over Toronto and the GTA – so I need to be in clothes that are comfortable and versatile.
What in your life is really important to you?
It’s really important for me to maintain a balance in my life of personal and professional activities. My family and friends will always be number one, and it’s really important to me to cultivate and strengthen those bonds constantly. Also, working with Scribble Me Silly, art for kids, is very important as I feel it’s a great opportunity to allow those that are transitioning into teenagers, and then young adults feel empowered and strong in their lives.
What would you like to be remembered for?
I really feel strongly about helping other people share their voice with the world. I love helping others in all aspects of my life and would love to be known for being there for them in need, and when just having a ball.
What role does fashion play in your life?
I love having fashionable, and classic items as part of my wardrobe. I spend more time paying attention to business growth so when I find something that fits, looks good and makes me feel good – it needs to last.
What do you love about shopping at Fresh Collective?
I love that the clothes feel like they’re made for my body. Everyone who I’ve ever dealt with at FC is always willing to help and find the clothes for me to try on – because they know my style just by the clothes I walk in wearing. They always dead-on with their choices.
What do you have that you want to promote?
I founded Simply Elaborate Creative Agency that specializes in helping small to medium sized businesses develop their brands, design and develop their websites, and we also take care of social media content creation! We love partnering with our clients to create customizable and easy-to-use websites.
Is there anything else we should know about you?
I just started learning how to knit! Although, I’m not very good at closing infinity scarves, I definitely love seeing the scarf get longer!!
