I am a stylist working out of the Hollywood area. My experience thus far has been mainly in editorial and fashion print, but I would love to gain experience in all aspects of styling, from high fashion, to indie labels, music videos, fashion shows, commercials, film and special events.
My background and education is in art and writing. My knowledge of style comes from a lifelong love affair with clothing and fashion. My personal style icons are everyone from Audrey Hepburn, Bridgette Bardot, Sophia Loren, Tory Burch, Grace Kelley and Jackie O to Kate Moss, Twiggy, Pamela des Barres, Bianca Jagger, and Grace Jones. My favorite designer is Chanel, but I also love young blood like Thakoon and Alexander Wang. I am influenced by film, history, the everyday and the artistic, you never know what reference might pop up while I'm styling. I am highly skilled when it comes to making something out of nothing. Although that is usually never the case, since I have a HUGE wardrobe of my own that I often pull from while styling, as well as relationships with vintage clothing stores, PR companies and other stylists in Hollywood.
I am interested in working primarily for credit, images of the shoot and pay, but I would be willing to work for simply credit and images if I feel I can get something beneficial for my resume from the shoot. I am also interested in working with people who are as creative and hardworking as myself. If hired, I will come to set on time, prepared, and ready to "make it work" and I expect the same from everyone else there!
