EDWARD BOWLEG III CHRONICLES HIS JOURNEY FROM CHILDHOOD FASHION ENTHUSIAST TO CELEBRATED STYLIST
By Victor Qunnuell Vaughns, Jr. for www.ebony.com
Edward Bowleg III is a part of fashion's next generation of stylists dominating the industry. The New York and Paris-based image architect fell in love with fashion as a child. Some of his earliest memories include him persuading his parents to bring fashion magazines home so that he could sift through them, gleefully soaking up the contents of the pages before he could even make sense of it all. Bowleg went on to major in fashion design in college where he quickly learned that constructing clothing was more complicated than it appeared in magazines. However, it was through this experience that he would come to recognize that he had a knack for arranging looks.
Bowleg went on to land a few freelance gigs assisting stylists and his career took off from there. He has lent his eye and styling expertise to various cover shoots for WSJ magazine, Vogue China, and Homme+ magazine, just to name a few. His work extends beyond editorial magazine work. He has also dabbled in advertising, styling with brands such as Hermes and Valentino Garavani.
Bowleg recently sat down with EBONY, highlighting his journey from elementary school fashion lover to a fashion stylist sitting front row at Paris Fashion Week.
