Today we’d like to introduce you to Emerald Williams.
Emerald, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I started my fashion career in 2014. One day, I was googling good fashion schools in Arizona, and surprisingly Mesa Community College was the top school that came up. From there, I decided to take some classes at Mesa Community College in 2015 for fashion merchandising and design. While there I learned about the history of fashion, body types for styling and they took us on a trip to Las Vegas for the Magic fashion convention for buyers and vendors. From there, I knew that this is something I would what to make a life long career out of.
Then in 2016, I become a fashion assistant/intern with Lisa Acquafredda and Stay Classy TV. I assisted Lisa with pulling clothes and styling the fashion segments at local news channel stations. Including news channel 3, channel 12, and Sonoran Living.
So, I worked with Lisa for the whole year of 2016 and learned a lot about the fashion industry and personal styling. By late 2016, I formed my own styling company and brand, named it Creative Process. In 2017, I started styling local music artists, some athletes, models, and businessmen.
In, October 2018, Creative Process was featured in a fashion show during LA Fashion Week in Los Angeles. LA Fashion Week was such a success, in 2019 I decided to move to LA and further my styling career. Since moving to LA, I have multiple published magazine covers, published magazine spreads, multiple celebrity styling gigs, and styled some music videos.
Has it been a smooth road?
Definitely has not been a smooth ride for me since I decided to fully focus on my brand and reach my goal of being a full-time stylist. A lot of ups and downs, financially and lack of support.
Creative Process – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I’m a stylist so I’m basically putting together a clothing look from head to toe. Could be for a photoshoot, meeting, night out, or whatever the occasion is. I specialize in men’s fashion, but I love styling women also. I would say I’m known for the details of the outfit. When I’m posting my photos on social media, I’m pointing out the details for my followers and non-followers to see why I put the two together. I think I’m most proud of, is being able to put together a good, nice outfit so fast. I think what sets me apart from others is, my clients have to look comfortable and feel confident in the looks I’m styling them in. I really have a good eye on what looks good and what doesn’t look good on a person.
Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
I love that LA has so much to do. Especially for my career. What I dislike the most is seeing so many homeless and know many came here to pursue a dream but never made it.
