IMG_3092 You may know Kanayo Ebi as the personal stylist of our favorite Simmon’s girls, Vanessa and Angela, but the stylish fashionista has a much larger resume filled with almost a decades worth of style expertise. After graduating with a degree in Psychology from St. John’s University, the Nigeria native entered into the executive world of fashion by chance. Little did she know that she would make a professional career of a leisure hobby of hers. 20 plus fashion weeks later and Ebi has made her name a ringer amongst industry veterans. To be a stylist in 2015 is a rare phenomenon, but for Kanayo it was destined and pretty much a one-way road to success. PYNK Magazine hung out with the aesthetic queen on a hot June day in NYC last week to discuss her come up as a stylist, working with Angela and Vanessa Simmons, and her five-year plan; while enjoying some ice cold lemonade. Wearing a casual boho denim dress and a dope pair of white kicks, Ebi gave us an inside look into the mind of a fashion artist, teaching us the proper techniques of a good stylist and telling us about her dreams to continue building towards a promising future in the industry. Kanayo shared some of her greatest experiences during past fashion weeks and her passion for making people feel comfortable and confident in whatever they wear. From the wise words of a fashion goddess, the most important aspect of styling is for her to “[capture]the essence of the style by showing it through clothing.” -Kanayo Ebi Learn more about Kanayo and her fashion tips on the following pages.
