Today’s guest blogger on “What Style Means To Me” is personal stylist Jonathan from the blog Jonnystylist. Jonathan is another Twitter family member of mine that I have yet to met but we tweet each other pretty much daily. With so much diversity among the guest bloggers, no two answers are the same when it comes to style. Johnathan’s take on what inspires him as stylist and what style means to him comes from a very honest place. And like Vanessa’s blog post, I learned a little more about my Twitter brother 😉
My interest in fashion started at a very young age. As a young boy growing up in a house with two older sisters who were very much into fashion and style, that had a huge impact on me. I think my sisters subscribed to every fashion magazine on the planet back then. There were always copies of Vogue or Glamour lying around the house when I was a kid and these were the pre-internet days so print magazines were gold when it came to keeping up on my area of interest (they still are for me even if I mostly buy digital versions now). I was always drawn to the beautiful photography in those magazines, whether it was a photoshoot or designer ad campaign. I think that’s where everything clicked for me that fashion and style is really just moveable art.
Style As Art
When I’m out shopping with a client and we see a pair of heels, I’m immediately putting together complete outfits in my head based on what she already has in her closet. It’s like making a collage, finding the right stylish pieces that perfectly compliment each other to bring together my vision for my clients. I truly believe that personal style is art.
