Interview: Dorit Kemsley’s Stylist Jazmin Gonzalez Dishes on Fashion & More
BigBlondeHair: How did you get your start as a Stylist?
Jazmin Gonzalez: I started as an intern in Fashion PR. My first internship was at Versace. I’m forever grateful because it was very hands on and what I learned there is invaluable. During my PR internships I realized I loved being around clothes and selecting looks to send to the magazines and stylists so I went on to pursue styling.
BBH: How did you end up connecting with Dorit Kemsley?
JG: I’ve known Dorit for over 5 years, I met her at a boutique in SoHo. I understood her fashion sense quickly and we hit it off, I’ve worked with her since.
BBH: Describe Dorit’s signature style.
JG: Chic and fashion forward with a bit of Rock & Roll!
BBH: Where are your favorite places to shop for Dorit? Favorite brands to pull from?
BBH: What wardrobe pieces would you recommend to anyone who wants to steal her style?
JG: Funky killer shoes, cool chokers, and a great fitted LBD that you can take from day to night!
BBH: There are a lot of women who can’t quite figure out how to create their own signature look. What’s your advice for them on bringing continuity to their wardrobe?
JG: Style is very personal; I think it takes a bit of exploring to figure out what you’re organically drawn to. As far as continuity—build around what you have and buy pieces that complement each other. It’s like putting together a puzzle.
BBH: What is your best styling advice for babes on a budget?
JG: Shop sale! At the end of each season you can find designer pieces for less than half price.
BBH: Do you have any advice for aspiring stylists?
JG: Really learn the craft and this industry. Intern or assist for a bigger stylist, study the greats, and don’t give up. People view this as a glamorous industry but it’s tough and those that make it are knowledgeable and work really hard.
BBH: Who are your personal fashion inspirations?
JG: I am a huge fan of Geraldine Saglio. She is the queen of chic to me, I love her personal style and her work is beautiful. Patti Wilson’s editorials are brilliant, her creativity on another level.
