Talent and a popping social media can really take you places. Being true to what you love can open up a variety of opportunities. Just ask Farren Fucci, thanks to his social media following, and unique styles he’s been added to a few celebrity speed dials. Fucci recently styled Bella Hadid and a few other models for the Fenty party.
Fucci, who is new to the game has lived in my home town of Rochester, NY, Atlanta, and North Carolina among other places. He was discovered due to his love and passion for styling. Fucci would put together looks on Polyvore that he’d style for celebrities if he had the chance. This habit was developed while working as an at home technical support agent for Apple.
Focusing on red carpet events and celebrity clientele, Fucci used diligence, fashion forwardness, and passion to land him his new groundbreaking gig.
“I signed because I knew the Rihanna cover was coming; I basically knew an overflow of opportunities was coming and I wasn’t going to be able to handle it all [on my own]”
Says Fucci after being signed to Wilhelmina Models.
Of course only Rihanna can pull off a shoot filled with style this innovative. She can rock anything as long as she has her confidence riding shot gun. Rihanna has also had an incredible year in fashion. Fenty is one of the most popular lines out right now.
Rihanna has also collaborated on a shoe line with Manolo Blanik. This deal came shortly after creating an amazingly successful line with Puma. Her designs are so iconic and are shown on the runways of New York Fashion Week.
She’s even honed in on her modeling skills . Rihanna has become the first black woman to front a dior campaign. By the looks of it I’m sure she’s not done crushing fashion goals.
The young pop star turned fashion maven is rising to the top of the designer chain.
