Parker’s journey into the world of styling began with a passion for self-expression through clothing. Growing up, Parker’s fascination with style served as a means of escape and self-discovery.
From experimenting with different trends through thrifting to curating her own looks, she quickly realized the power of fashion.
“The older I got the more I wanted to figure out what it was that I enjoyed doing, because working at Call Centers for the rest of my life wasn’t the ceiling for me,” said Parker. ” I always knew I had purpose and knew that I would be a somebody.”
” Believe it or not, when I was a kid, I use to practice my signature as if I was giving out my autograph,” she laughs. “Never in a million years did I think it would be fashion because I started my styling page with no real expectations and I just wanted to share with the world what I loved so much.”
Parker’s breakthrough into the competitive world of fashion didn’t come without its challenges. Determined to make a name for herself, she started by creating her own looks and posting them on social media. Her dedication and tireless work ethic soon caught the attention of industry insiders, opening doors to collaborations with emerging artists and influencers. “Loving fashion so much only made me want to know more about it.

Rather than conforming to trends, Parker embraces the art of settng trends through her styling. Her work often reflects a nostalgia feel, all while resulting in luxurious looks that are not only visually striking but also deeply reflective of her client’s personalities.
“I will be completely honest, growing up and even now, I was always THAT friend that you could come to when you needed help finding something to wear,” expressed Parker. “My friends were my own little personal dolls that I got to play dress up with and initially, I didn’t really look at it as a talent. I just knew it made ME feel good making others feel good, and we all know when you look good, you feel good.”

From red carpet events to magazine covers, her styling has graced some of the most high-profile appearances in the entertainment industry.
