Dayna Embrey is an American designer who combines her passion for botanical photography and textile design to create beautiful prints and patterns that have been applied to various products from home interiors to fashion.
She has graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Textile/Surface Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City and worked at P/Kaufmann Inc. where she was initially exposed to the design aesthetic of leading brands such as Waverly, HGTV Home, and Tommy Bahama. This was an invaluable opportunity for Dayna as she was able to develop her design/color skills, project management, and business acumen.
Unexpectedly, her career and love life coincided after meeting her future English husband in Manhattan. She decided to leave NYC for London and enrolled in an intensive Digital Design course at the University of Arts. After completion of her course, she attended numerous design shows, exhibitions and museums all while traveling to several art capitals of the world such as cities in England, Italy, France, Spain and Dubai.
At the conclusion of her travels, she found herself incredibly determined to launch her very own business. Dayna Embrey Design was established in 2014 and she began to exhibit her work through an agent at shows like Surtex, Indigo & Heimtexil.
Since launching her company last year, Dayna's distinctive style continues to receive great response and is picking up momentum with a growing client and product base. Dayna has partnered up with Guildery to design pillows, fabric, drapes, ottomans and wallpaper. Dayna is currently working on launching an online shop that will offer her signature pillows, fabric by the yard, prints and more.
