Daily Inspiration: Meet Kay A.

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kay A.

Hi Kay, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I came into this by luck. I started as a model and have always had a hand in the fashion industry since I was 17. When I started modeling independently, I was building my own sets, using my clothes, and doing my makeup, and I realized how much I loved that part of it all and was good at it. I wanted to focus on only that part of the industry, the styling and creative directing, and nothing else.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a smooth road?
It has been everything else but a smooth road. It has been nothing but struggles and still is in many ways. It has been tough for people to take me seriously, dealing with very extreme personalities and just getting my footing on this side of fashion. But I love what I do, and I have gotten positive results more than negative ones, so I try to let that motivate me when things get rough.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I am a Wardrobe /Fashion Stylist and Creative Director. I own my own Fashion Styling business called Art of Style. I am mostly known for being completely different from other stylists because of my ‘think outside of the box mentality. That sets me apart from everyone else because I set out to make art out of style, literally. Every shoot or showcasing designer’s pieces is done artistically. I am proud of getting through the obstacles.

How do you define success?
I define success by everyone knowing my name and what I do. I love making people look and feel great and showcasing pieces the way no one has ever done. Of course, everyone wants the monetary benefits, but I want true acknowledgment and gratitude for what I do.
