I am always interested in following fashion stylists since I am in the field and I LOVE to see how others got into this profession. I first found out about Brea Star after a publicist sent me info about the online reality competition called Concrete & Cashmere. This contest was between stylists who were competing to be the final stylist standing that would design the uniform for the Alize brand. The entire time I was rooting for Brea Star, who ended up WINNING! Then, I sent out a tweet asking who styles Keri Hilson and once again Brea Star's name was out there so I decided that everyone needed to k now about Brea Star since she had caught my attention:) Stay tuned this year for Brea Stinson's first line (BSTAR) this year (2010).
Brea Stinson, the fashion stylist and designer:
Brea began as a High School student in Detroit creating looks (by styling and designing) for her friends attending homecoming and prom. During her time at college at Clark Atlanta University friends kept wanting the looks Brea was putting together, so she came up with a line called, BStar that included signature tees and customized denim.
After college, Brea moved to New York City and assisted stylists like PATRICIA FIELDS--working on a few episodes of SATC (what a DREAM!) and Tameka Foster (who styles celebs like Toni Braxton and Lauryn Hill.) From working with Tameka, Brea began to hone her skills as a stylist and develop her niche for custom designing. (Assisting and interning for established stylists not only teaches you how to style, but also allows you to meet potential future clients.)
