“My family always made sure we all dressed well and look good, I’ve thought about styling but I didn’t know how to start. Until one day I just decided to jump into it and haven’t looked back since”
The Wire Hanger By Winnie: Who was your first celebrity client and what did they need styling for?
Eggleston: My first celeb client sang at the COGIC Holy Convocation. Her name is Alexis Spight. She was the 2nd runner up on BET’s Sunday Best.
TWHBW: What are some other celebrity clients you’ve styled?
Eggleston: Artists such as:
TWHBW: Is your main focus within gospel artists?
Eggleston: I love styling my clients that are gospel artists but I’d like to break into the secular world to style as well. The world can’t see my full potential working with gospel artists sometimes because they are scrutinized by what they wear. You have to be very careful styling a client that is a gospel artist.
TWHBW: What celebrities would you love to style?
Eggleston:The ultimate male celebrity I would like to style is Lyfe Jennings. The female is Fantasia. I’ve always respected them as artists and I am always up for a challenge.
TWHBW: What obstacle or challenge would you say you’ve had to face so far?
Eggleston: Styling in the fashion industry, back biting is a major issue. Back biting meaning, if someone asks for styling help, or tips, they could in actuality claim your work.
TWHBW: Where do you see yourself in the future?
Eggleston: I plan to expand myself not only as a stylist but as a designer as well. I also plan to cater to younger clients as well and design clothing for children.
