This week Reality TV Fashion sat down with friend to the blog Kendrell Bowman for an intimate chat in his NYC-based styling studio. You may know Kendrell as wardrobe stylist to “Love & Hip Hop ATL’s” K. Michelle, or through his work with musical artists Kanye West, Ludacris, or David Banner, but I learned that this guy wears many hats! In addition to being stylist to the stars, Kendrell is also a Creative Image Consultant and Creative Director/Head Costume Designer for the hit musical “Fabulous, One More Time: A Sylvester Concert“ starring Anthony Wayne, which celebrates the life of the popular 1970’s disco singer through his music.
In our exclusive interview Kendrell, who is known for the way he effortlessly blends high fashion with urban couture, talks about both the highs and lows of a career in fashion styling, gives us advice on how to succeed in the fashion industry, and discusses the five fashion “must haves” a girl needs in her closet. Check out footage from our interview below as well as more photos in the gallery!
