An individual makes two very important choices in life, to fit in with social expectations or to create the new wave. From a very early age, I acknowledged that fashion and style was not merely just the decision of what to wear for the day – but was an embodiment of my personality. The undeniable passion, terrific eye and sharp instincts for fashion were duly noted from early on. By age fourteen, I was determined that my dream job was to be a publisher for a world-renowned fashion magazine. Upon entry to North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University (AGGIE PRIDE!), I was styling and shopping for classmates and earning a well-deserved title as a consummate fashionista.
I’m best known for my instinctive fashion brilliance and jubilant demeanor. With a Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Communication Systems with a focus in Printing & Publishing, from NC A&T State University, and an Associate’s Degree in Fashion Marketing from The Art Institute of Charlotte, I strive to exude the cutting edge, with unconventional thinking with an ounce of sugar to make you feel comfortable in my moments of creation.
As a Personal Stylist, I teach clients, Fashion Tips 101- the necessary tools clients need to construct flawless, fashionable looks in everyday life. In addition to educating them about proportion, color and fit – my ultimate goal is to help each client extract confidence, sensuality, and strength.
As a Fashion Stylist, I focus on creating a story through the pairing of abstract garments and innovative accessories that effortlessly lead to a beautiful and intuitive result. I continue to depict the vision and life of clothing while creating a uniquely memorable, fashion-forward concept.
Currently, I spend my days styling for photo shoots and events, managing and coordinating fashion shows, making TV appearances, speaking at engagements about personal image do’s and don’ts, teaching young girls about the Fashion/Beauty Industry and uplifting the community through charitable events like BOLT, Girl Talk Foundation, Inc. Prom Project, Pret a Por (tea) Fundraising Luncheon, and Party for a Purpose benefiting Autism Awareness. I also work with clients on personal shopping, wardrobe consulting and harnesses the power of social media to share and collaborate with other industry innovators. Also, I am currently pursuing a Master’s in Fashion Journalism at the Academy of Art University’s online program.
