Freelance Fashion Stylist


Hello, Christopher Quarterman here! I am a freelance fashion stylist originally from Lexington, Kentucky currently living in New York City; Brooklyn, to be exact. If I had to define my sense of style I would have to start with one word: spontaneous. Some days I feel like putting together a look and sometimes I don’t. When I do feel like getting dressed and considering my appearance I can be very playful and androgynous; I love wearing heels. However, when I’m working or just totally out of it, I like to be very casual and opt for wearing mostly black. On a normal day you’ll probably catch me wearing black jeans, a black turtleneck, and black shoes of some sort. In fashion it is typical to spot like-minded individuals everywhere, especially in New York, wearing an all-black look.. Prior to moving to New York, nothing in my wardrobe was black. I was known for wearing bright colors, having dyed hair, and acrylic gel painted manicures.


A lot has changed over the years—my style has certainly evolved. I wear less color, my hair is natural without any dye, and my nails are a long way from any type of accepted manicure. Not only has my style evolved, so has my career. Today, I worry less about my appearance and focus more on my work. I am a one man show, for the most part, and I just don’t have time to think about my style. Somedays you may even catch me in the same complete look from the day before. I’ve found that when I’m more focused on my work and less with my appearance, my work flourishes. I can finally become one with my art and not be so distracted by the next thing I’ll buy, or what I’ll wear the next day. But don’t get me wrong, I’ll put on a show once the work is done.
