By Claire

He had quite a lot to say! He writes, “I am currently a graduate student with the Poole College of Management at North Carolina State University seeking experience and mentorship in the world of styling.”

” As Yves Saint Laurent once stated, “Fashions fade, style is eternal.” I could not agree more. Fueled by my consumption of luxury goods at an early age, my interest in pursuing a career in styling has grown exponentially over the last several years.”

“The path that has led me to my infatuation with styling was nothing short of divine intervention. My father was a college basketball coach, and while he was away during the season, I developed a habitual shopping habit- greatly influenced by my mother.”

” One might think that this scenario is not that bad, but taking into consideration the fact I started dressing myself at the age of three, the picture becomes a little clearer. By the age of fourteen, my love for style had become unconditional. I remember once making a deal with my mother for a pair of Gucci sunglasses from Tom Ford’s 2004 collection in exchange for my services painting rooms in our home.”

” I was hooked, but I wasn’t satisfied. This was due to the fact that I couldn’t pinpoint what caused the feeling that pulled at my heart. During my undergraduate studies, I was involved in just about every activity on campus at NC A&T. Due to the fact that I was on athletic scholarship; I was unable to hold a job. However, during my sophomore year I found a channel through which I could express my passion for styling- dressing my friends for the NXLEVEL parties.”

” It started off as a challenge by one of my friends to give her a makeover, but by the end of my senior year, I was dressing upward of ten people for the White Party, All Black Affair, and Lovers & Friends; I had found my calling.”

“I would describe my personal style as being the hybrid love child of Coco Chanel, Patricia Field, Tom Ford, Yves Saint Laurent, and Andre Leon Talley.”

” I have an affirmation for classic tailoring with a modern twist and/or a splash of color. Growing up as an overweight African American male in the south I was never the popular kid in school, but I made it a point that NOBODY will ever beat my outfit. So naturally I hated rules.”

” Growing up I wore white before Memorial Day, wore horizontal strips even though I was over 250 pounds, and always tried to mix media! However, the best thing to ever happen to my style was a tailored suit. I love tailoring, and I find that every person in the world should have a tailored suit because a good tailored suit makes ANYBODY look good (man or woman). On the flip side of that I feel that people should always construct outfits with the high/low philosophy.”

“At this point in my life, I feel I am ready to face the challenges that lie ahead. Determined to pursue a career in styling, I have created a website with the hopes to better brand myself. There you can find styling projects I have worked on in the past, in addition to insights into my personal style. I hope that you will find that this brief profile, in combination with the attached website describes a passionate “Fashion Bomber of the Day”. Once again thank you for your time and consideration.”

  1. I think he’s a bomber… I do think that he need to work a little on fit. But his style is fun… Love how he’s not afraid of color and patterns.

  2. PEACHES says:

    A load of diversity in his fashion choices, the man has style, but I wish he left the jackets unbuttoned!!!

  3. Ashley says:

    Nice submission! Best of luck on your professional styling endeavors.

  4. JaJa says:

    I agree with the comments about the fit and leaving jackets opened overall I like it!

  5. Anon says:

    BOMBER! Only outfit I didnt like was the mixed print shirt and pants with the black blazer. But he did that. Nothing like a well groomed bearded black man.

  6. Brittany says:

    Too much text. I don’t care about your life story. Just show me the clothes. Ditch the double breasted suits; they look dated. My vote is some hits some misses.

  7. tahlyuh says:

    Handsome, well put together guy.
