In partnership with New Balance, our ‘One Step Ahead’ series will explore the journeys of five creatives who have blazed their own trail within the sneaker industry.
Up-and-coming graphic designer Emily Petersen has seized every opportunity to establish herself among the sneaker scene’s new wave of style innovators. Embracing the unknown, Emily traded her hometown Melbourne for Copenhagen to take up a role with Naked, the world’s premier destination for female sneakerheads. In the interests of full disclosure, we have to mention that Emily was a Sneaker Freaker intern several years ago, and we’re really proud to see how she’s flourished! Though her career has only just begun, her story will resonate with anyone looking to get that foot in the door for the first time.
