Miami Herald Media + Elysze Held

For the past six years, I’ve been an Assistant Fashion Stylist for Elysze Held – Wardrobe Stylist and Senior Fashion Editor at Miami Herald Media’s Indulge Magazine. On-set during photoshoots and fashion shows, I was responsible for organizing wardrobes and accessories, dressing models, and liaising with photographers, models, hair and makeup artists.

Additionally, as an Assistant Photographer at Indulge Magazine, I ensured photoshoots ran smoothly from conception to execution, by planning, setting up and executing photoshoots on location.

By assisting photographers and fashion stylists, I have built a vast network of connections within Miami’s photo, fashion and creative industry.
