Ones To Watch: Amber Donoso
Location: London, UK
At the intersection of fashion, urban vibes and Latina cool, that’s where you’ll find Amber Donoso. Imagine if Bella Hadid could sing like Rihanna only with Shakira’s hip movements. That’s pretty much Amber… only with prodigious writing talent.
The fashion credentials are solid, what with Chilean-born, London-raised Amber’s history as a model, fiercely ruling London Fashion Week while she juggled A-levels before establishing herself in Paris for the couture shows. It’s the urban vibes and the Latin cool that she’s here to prove now.
Having collaborated with writers famous for their work with the likes of Justin Timberlake, Stormzy, Giggs, Amy Winehouse and Rihanna, she creates amazing dance music. That much is emphasized in her music, she is very hands on when it comes to her videos and has worked with influential dance talent Michele Du Verney, which might explain the incredible choreography in her videos, something that comes naturally to Amber who grew up in a Latin family where dance was just another part of the language. The videographer that she has worked with, Chas Appeti has worked with the likes of Krept and Konan and Wiz Khalifa, so you already know her videos are going to be amazing.
Now that she’s spending the money she earned from modeling on keeping control over her own career, she reveals that music was always the priority, her first love, if you like – well, she did start singing and playing guitar at the age of 10 and writing her songs from 13. As for fashion, it was fun but basically a means to an end.
