ABOUT WYLD EMPYRE
After nine years of working as a graphic designer, Lauren Blair Blake left her steady
career to focus on her passion and created Wyld Empyre. The luxury exotic goods company
launched in March 2020 in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, but has quickly found its
way thanks to its unique style and superb skins. The pieces are inspired by styles from
the 1940s to 1960s, but with a contemporary twist, bright colors, and unexpected materials.
Blake, Wyld Empyre founder, and Creative Director, studied studio art at Texas Christian
University. Her work as a sculptor and digital artist plays a large part of how she
approaches design. Blake designs pieces in her native Texas, works closely with US-based
purveyors of responsibly-sourced exotic skins, and directs the Manhattan-based workshop
as they bring each handcrafted piece to life.
