Fashion stylist and producer Betsy de la Vega studied in Milan’s Marangoni Institute and has worked for brands like Julio and Sears. The result of her styling is always better when there’s a purpose behind her work, she says, and she always stands by Mies Van Der Rohe’s famous “less is more.”
Spending some time in the ever-cosmopolitan London changed her perception of fashion and beauty. “Edgy but always classy, everyone gives fashion a new interpretation through their style,” she said.
Different fashion movements and periods inspire the fashion expert. Some of them are punk, cowboy and minimalist. She loves traveling and meeting new people. “There is always something new to learn out there,” she said. “There is always something daring and interesting in the kind of people I surround myself with.”
A white tank top and a great pair of denim pants are always her first choices when she goes through her wardrobe. However, Betsy knows how to pull off an effortless but sophisticated look by adding the right leather booties. She has great taste and knew what fashion was all about since she was a little kid. Betsy showed us the oldest piece inside her closet and it is a Christian Dior dress from when she was two years old.
Always captivating the crowd, this fashion stylist believes looks are important when describing good style – but attitude is the key. For her, the magic of styling is in the opportunity to create new things while merging her passions: art, history, architecture and music.
For the range of knowledge she has in history art and fashion, The Fancy Archive praises Betsy’s passion and creativity in the styling world.
