Fashion Icon of the Week...

Dear Diary,

What better way to pay homage to the ones who rule the fashion industry than a "Fashion Icon of the Week" segment. What better way to start this segment off than celebrity stylist/designer and author, June Ambrose. Though she started her career working at an investment banking firm, she landed an internship through a friend at Uptown MCA Records. There she became a fashion stylist. Since then, she’s worked with everyone in hip hop and has brought high fashion and luxury looks to an industry profiled as low-budget and street. She has styled for artists like Missy Elliot, P. Diddy, Jay Z, Hype Williams, Busta Rhymes just to name a few. Through her countless accomplishments, New York Magazine has dubbed her a modern-day hip hop Holly Golightly. Her website, put it best, “Ambrose has left an indelible mark on today’s youth, inspiring countless trends and major fashion statements.” Now owner of her own full-service styling firm Mode Squad, Inc., she says,” Fashion is about self-expression and also a statement about our times”. Spoken like a true fashionista; I couldn’t agree more. There’s no doubt why the Joli team has chosen her as their Fashion Muse. Don't forget to check out her book entitled "EFFORTLESS STYLE".
