Lionel has been enchanted by the imagery and creativity of fashion from an early age. As a youngster, he poured over Vogue and W--finding inspiration in hip hop and Chanel, Lil' Kim and Gucci--and, after studying menswear design at the Academy of Art and working as a visual merchandiser, naturally found his way into styling for the camera. Lionel is passionate about what clothes can say about a person and a lifestyle, and how to best put them together to fully realize what his clients are imagining. He looks at every project as an opportunity to collaborate with different perspectives, learn new tricks, and create a version of things both as they are and as they could be.
Lionel's Clients include: Banana Republic, Denizen, Docker's, Gap, Levi's, Old Navy, Walmart
