Hi, my name is Lydia Short, your DMV based personal stylist. Ever since I could dress myself I’ve loved fashion and everything that came with it. Dressing has always been a way for me to express myself and where I felt my most confident. But, it was not until 2016 that I really started taking things seriously, realizing I could see myself doing this professionally not only for my benefit but, for the benefit of other people. In January of 2016, I volunteered for “The Great Bridal Expo” (in Baltimore) where I had the opportunity to dress models in multiple bridal gowns to take the runway. It was a fast pace environment but, I really enjoyed it and from then on I’ve interned backstage for several fashion shows including Baltimore and New York Fashionweek. I was even given an opportunity to help with Angela Simmons 2016 launch of Vipe-activewear. These experiences intensified my eye for style, helped me pick up the latest trends, and introduced me to styling and the fashion industry in a major way.
My involvement with the shows broadened my experience and opened my eyes to see that I could take my creativity to the next level.
On November 18, 2017, I was able to do my first styling session with recording artist Aaron Harris and Genesis for their first live recording and from then on I have been styling a variety of different clients regardless of budget and size.
Personal styling and everything it has to offer has been a huge passion of mine and it has so much to offer in the field. So, when you have a passion for something what is the best thing to do? Of course your answer should be …become an expert in it and get certified. On March 12, 2018 after a five week intensive course at School of Style taught by the one and only Lauren Messiah I earned my certification of completion and became a personal stylist.
I specialize in helping men and women find their strength and dignity through looking better. By helping individuals find their style this has a huge impact in finding their self-worth. Being worth-it and feeling good is the goal.
So, Come Take that leap and invest in yourself today for a better tomorrow, and what better way to take that leap than to be Styledbylydiacassia.
