FEATURING: Jennifer Lee
WHAT IS YOUR PERSONAL MISSION?
Since moving to San Francisco a year ago, I discovered some incredibly talented designers and craftsmen that are producing here in the Bay Area. I'd love to start a collective/initiative to bring their talents to the forefront of Editors, Buyers, and International Press, and have their designs recognized in New York and globally.
HOW DID YOU GET TO WHERE YOU ARE TODAY?
I'm a Fashion Stylist and a Contributing Editor for a luxury magazine. I've always loved fashion as a child and was surprised that being a stylist was a career option. I worked in a luxury store during college, styling their designers' special events, so I had the opportunity to meet renowned New York designers and Parisian couturiers. After graduation, I bought a one way ticket to New York and landed in the fashion department at Glamour Magazine as an Assistant Fashion Editor.
WHAT IS YOUR PROUDEST MOMENT TO DATE?
I was asked to do a prop styling job for an online campaign highlighting a co-branding initiative between Google and Sonos. This was my first ever prop styling assignment.
It was an incredible learning experience using very different skills. The clients were thrilled with the results.
ANY PERSON YOU WANT TO GIVE A SHOUTOUT TO IN THE INDUSTRY?
So many people have helped and inspired me along the way: when I first started, stylists that I've assisted, who've taught me secret industry tricks; photo editors who assigned celebrities to me, and editors who gave me the chance to write my first fashion article.
HOW DID YOU FIND OUT ABOUT ADHESIVE?
My first Adhesive event was at Sweet & Vicious in NY on one of those warm fall days and we were outside in the back. I can't remember who brought me, but I saw so many old friends and colleagues there. It was such a great time. Now, I get to experience it on the West Coast!
