So today I’d like to introduce you to our new intern…
…17-year-old fashion enthusiast Sean Garrette!
You might have noticed a few Fashion Quickie’s he’s sent our way in the past couple weeks. The definition of driven, Sean eschewed traditional rules, simply writing us on an almost daily basis with great ides and a slew of well researched, complete style articles.Â We hadn’t even advertised for an intern, but he kept at it, and his persistence paid off!
Vuitton has been promoted from intern to Fashion Bomb reporter (woot!) and today Sean Garrette gives us his first official Fashion Bomb ‘tern post on up and coming stylist, Phlo Finister:
A fashion editor for Persona Magazine and stylist to the salacious new pop group Elektrik Red.
Let’s read on!
Sean says, “The Oakland born and LA raised Phlo got her start on a shoot with Jim Jones where she met Christopher, an Editor of Persona Magazine. Impressed by her style and fashion sense, he offered her a styling and editor job on the spot.”
With a style influenced by, “Life, and people who live freely,” Phlo is also a model and candidly told Sean, â€œItâ€™s a full time job of not eating and wearing amazing clothes.â€ Ha!
In an interview with Bossip, Phlo revealed she got started on her fashion track when she was 5-years-old and first put on her grandmother’s YSL pumps with red lipstick to play dress up. A few short years later and you can now find her modeling for Brian Lichtenberg, American Apparel, Maxine Dillion, Rojas and styling shoots for Electrik Red, Ibn Jasper, Rich Hill and Melyssa Ford.
Both Sean and Phlo show that age is nothing but a number. And if you really want something, you can make it happen!
Stay tuned for more of Sean Garrette’s articles! And keep an eye out for Phlo, who will be dropping a mix tape in August and is working on a blog called Pholove.
