Why wardrobe stylist?
It's fun and it comes naturally to me. My day job is in an industry that doesn't allow a lot of opportunity for creative expression, so I've really enjoyed having this as an outlet for my creative energies.
Who is your favorite wardrobe stylist of all time?
This is probably a pretty common answer but I really think Grace Coddington is a genius; of course she has the ability to pull just about any item of clothing she wants but I think she really tells a story through editorial better than any other stylist working today.
What inspires you?
Old Hollywood films from the 30's-60's.
What do you look for when selecting a model to work with?
I like someone who has a can-do attitude. No one should have to feel uncomfortable at a shoot but there have been a lot of models who I've worked with that seem like they REALLY don't want to be there. It's always a lot harder to get a good shot with them. A positive attitude will come across in the final product.
What is your favorite store to shop at or your favorite brand?
I am constantly browsing Bona Drag, Opening Ceremony, ASOS, La Garconne, Ssense, Totokaelo, and Creatures of Comfort for new arrivals.
What is your favorite project you have worked on?
I really enjoyed working on the editorial film that I styled for Nylon x Charles David. It was a really fantastic team and really fun to do a film.
What is your personal style?
I am really all over the place but it'll either be something mid-century inspired or black skinny jeans and a faded rock t-shirt.
What genre does your work focus on?
I've mostly done editorial stuff so far. It allows for the greatest degree of creativity but also pays the worst!
What is your favorite band or song of all time?
I always have a different favorite band of the moment but of all time, probably the Clash or the Ramones. Hard to go wrong there.
What is your most embarrassing moment professionally?
I worked on this one underwater shoot one time with a very talented photographer named Rebecca Handler. Let's just say, styling clothes underwater is even more challenging than it sounds.
