"The sky isn't the limits it's just the view." - Swizz Beatz
I have known Kamylle Edwards since high school, when her steady passion for the arts inspired me to search for Photoshop tutorials online and try to teach myself the program. I have honestly never met anyone so sure of themselves, their gifts, and their desires.
One of the most striking parts about this Bronx native is her unwavering ambition. The energy that radiates from her is in my opinion honestly unmatched; It is pleasantly refreshing. Kamylle is the kind of person you would want to be friends with because spending time with her makes you want to get your shit/life together. She is the person that would push you to the creative depths of your mind and encourage you to fucking go for it.
I met up with her earlier last summer, we discussed race relations in NYC, Cardi B and most importantly her upcoming projects. Kamylle is keeping busy creating her own line of accessories, and even taking time to explore her skills in film. With so much going on, anyone would wonder when she has time for anything else. But like a true Renaissance woman. She makes it fucking work. The hustle of New York City woman never stops and is always done with exceptional style.
Kamylle’s close relationship to her family has allowed her the opportunity to explore her career aspirations without succumbing to the type of living akin to city dwellers, living in constant survival mode. She studied Graphic Design and Textile/Surface Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology with hopes of working in the fashion closets of vogue, or designing the holiday display at Bergdorf’s. She currently works for a TV network which promotes music and black culture. Although a slightly different direction than originally intended she finds herself fortunate enough to try new things every day and bring her fashion views to a different kid of platform. This opportunity has allowed her many creative pleasures, and helping her reach her ultimate goal of one day working for herself. "I'm very opinionated and often employers only care about execution not what you think of the process. My view may be myopic as I have yet to have an employer that valued that characteristic." When it comes to her line of accessories her ultimate goal as a designer is to create quality items that are reasonably priced. Kamylle’s style ranges from that of a tomboy to girly girl. She wants to make sure she can create conversation starting pieces that fit this spectrum.
I am beyond excited to follow Kamylle’s journey. I know that she will be successful in all her aspirations and am honored to have gotten the chance to chat with her.
