Stalked: Omenaa, New York Stylist

27 January 2014

Recently I stalked the lovely Omenaa Boakye, a British born, New York based stylist on the back streets of Soho, and quizzed her over a coffee about her style and career.

What do you do? What's cool about your job?

I am a Fashion Stylist and Journalist. I like the fact that every day is different, one day I might be shooting on location at the beach, the next day I’m running around showrooms looking for the perfect looks. I also love that I get to meet new people, from clients to photographers.

What cool projects are you working on at the moment?

I have just finished working on two editorial shoots for a magazine and now I am getting ready for New York fashion week which starts in a couple of weeks.

 Where do you love to shop in NYC and London?

I literally shop everywhere and anywhere, my list is endless.  I like anything that is different; unique cuts, bold prints and interesting detail.

Who's your favourite designer?

There are several, but I can name a few : - ) for accessories, I currently love the new Mikky Melon bags; they are spacious, compact and come in great colours. Mulberry is another favourite, I like their structure and detailing; I’m in love with the Willow Tote at the moment. For clothing, I like the quintessentially British style of Burberry, the lady-like look of Prada and the bold prints of Marni. I also like Alice & Olivia and Catherine Malandrino.

How would you describe your personal style?

Eclectic - my style is very varied; it really depends on my mood and the occasion. 

Five items you can't live without?

My phone – from staying in touch with family and friends to website research and checking my emails, I don’t know where I would be without it.

My laptop – I use it a lot for research and writing articles. 
My Bible – I am a Christian so having a bible to refer to is very important to me, it helps me make the right decisions. 
My Pretty Ballerina ballet flats – I like to wear flat shoes when I have a lot of running around to do. My Pretty Ballerinas are comfortable and stylish. 

My watch – I always have several things to do in one day, as a result, I am constantly checking my watch.
