~Bleeding Fashion~ OPÉ the Style Artist

Opé is a Nigerian American fashion stylist, creative director of fashion photo shoots, image consultant and personal shopper based in NYC. Yep, a mouthful of amazingness!! Surprisingly, she has no formal training but says she has been drawing ever since she could hold a pencil. Before getting into styling, she worked for designer Betsey Johnson for a number of years and  considers Ms. Johnson an early influence but sites designers Alexander McQueen, John Galliano and Vivienne Westwood  as inspirations.  Her styling is so over the top & avant-garde, i find it breath taking. Her creativity shines through her shoots as each picture depicts a different story. I love seeing different kinds of art and ope is a reiteration that art truly comes in different forms. She paints and sketches and describes fashion styling and creative direction as a 'way to extend artistry on to the canvas of real life'. 
When beginning work on a project,  Opé  issues the following caution: When cut, I bleed fashion…” Argh, loves her!!!
