How Can We Help You?
Look Authority Studio caters to inventive companies and individuals, delivering creative, production, and event services IRL and online. From wardrobe development and creative direction to show production and photoshoot planning to web design and content creation, we deliver success stories for fashion, lifestyle, and artist brands.
Styling & Costume Design
Lead stylist and costume designer, Sal Yvat collaborates with creative teams to align on the wardrobe direction for editorials, brand advertisements, commercial campaigns, film projects, music videos, press editorials, and artists performances. The LAS approach combines market research with a refined perspective from the school of assemblage and Afrofuturism; incorporating vintage silhouettes with an emphasis on color, texture, and pattern.
Look Authority offers a bold yet timeless perspective for fashion, narrative, and performance projects. We use wardrobe as a vehicle for unapologetic expression, diverse storytelling, and self-empowerment. We believe everyone deserves a look.
