MEET DALLAS SHAW
nown as THE “it-girl illustrator” and style expert, Dallas Shaw has spent some time collaborating with fashion’s heavy hitters since she’s launched her career—you might say at the age of 4. Truth is, she’s the business’ primary example of how a discerning eye (and brush stroke) for style can translate into an industry masterpiece—whether that be on a canvas, a Twitter avatar, or the official tote bag of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.
In addition to partnering with top designers and fashion houses for illustrations and concept development, Dallas has appeared in numerous publications, advertorials, and shopping sites offering personal style picks, expert advice, and industry knowledge. Recent appearances include Lucky Magazine, Philadephia Style Magazine, Brides, Real Living, Gotham, Delaware Today, WWD, ROCO Magazine, Signature Brandywine, Philadelphia Magazine and online style blogs such as Elle Décor, Design Sponge, Matchbook Mag, and Oh Joy – to name a few.
But her enviable client list and high-demand status does not lessen her love for staying connected and sharing her inspirations with fashion fans across the globe through her extremely popular personal style blog (dillydallas.blogspot.com), Twitter (@dallasshaw), Pinterest (pinterest.com/dallasshaw), and Instagram (DallasShaw). Her followers are made up of creative women, editorial staff, and fashionistas who all turn to her blog and social pages for her trusted opinion and stamp of approval on trends, products, and advice when shopping online and in stores.
Dallas knows that there is power in collaboration. She believes that when two brands come together, their “sharing” of talent provides endless opportunities for growth, which she has proven while working with the fashion industry’s top influencers.
So, what’s her secret to breaking the mold of a typical artist and becoming her own BRAND? “The importance of personal style.”
