A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of hearing a panel of stylists speak at the Fashionista Conference in LA. Among the panel was one of my big time stylist crushes, Micaela Erlanger, who is also featured in Vanity Fair.
Remember this Lupita look (below)? Such a bold statement told in the classiest form; Micaela’s work at its finest. At the conference, Micaela stressed the importance of developing relationships with her clients. She’ll even collaborate with them on Pinterest boards to understand their boundaries, and she digs deep to really understand what fashion means to them.
Micaela in Vanity Fair: “I think it’s about not being afraid to try something new,” she says. “I think it’s about being able to interpret the risk or edge in a wearable way.”
She’s right. Style is about taking risks, and by taking risks with her clients, Micaela has really showcased her talent as a damn good stylist. Can you believe she’s only 29?
