Little Miss Em shoots and interveiws for Monki

We’ve had a crush on the half Malaysian, half English model ever since she stepped onto our radar and into our clothes last year. 

With an incredible sense of self, we thought this outspoken and unashamed feminist would be the ideal badass Monki babe to work with us on our Denim ID campaign. 

We snuck in a quick Q&A with Emily in between snaps in sunny Brighton – enjoy! 

Describe growing up in Brighton:

Windy, friendly, amazing, sociable, fun.

Fave place for ice cream:


What you love about fashion?

Fashion allows you to present yourself as any person you wish to be. You can be a cowboy one day and a businesswoman the next.

Describe your #Monkistyle:

A bit messy, but usually I managed to pull it together.

Complete this; Feminism is…

Equality regardless of gender, race, wage, sexuality etc…

What do you hope will change:

It will become a far more intersectional, meaning that it is an issue recognized by all genders alike, again regardless of race, wage and sexuality.

What you hope will stay the same:

Its exposure in mainstream media


Don’t let anyone tell you that you have to change for anyone else, to be accepted.

And since we’re here in the name of denim, what kind of jeans are you?

High waisted bell bottoms because they're fun and flirty.
