What is the most glamorous part of the job? And what is the least?
The part of my job I enjoy most is getting to create and collaborate with other creatives I admire and that share a similar vision. Least favorite part of my job, being a bag lady.
What advice would give to someone wanting to pursue a styling career, particularly in the midst of this digital era?
With editorial moving more and more to the digital space, I think now is a great time to freely create, experiment, and put out work that you care about. Also, research and surround yourself with people you can learn from and that keep you inspired.
