Shelby is a Los Angeles-based stylist best known for reinventing Kesha’s personal style. Hired in 2012, she was tasked with evolving the pop star’s look from grunge to glam, while maintaining the free spirited, pop-rock attitude that Kesha is known for.
Her ability to evolve a client’s style without abandoning their identity comes from both an innate ability, and a background focused heavily in design. After graduating with a BFA in Fashion Design from Washington University in St. Louis, Shelby spent her first year in New York City as assistant designer at Norma Kamali. There she learned the value of "knowing your customer," which she then put into practice assisting costume designer Zaldy. Working closely alongside the couture designer, she helped create tour costumes for Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Scissor Sisters and many others. This experience planted her feet firmly in the celeb world, providing her with a skill set of knowing not only how to create for a high profile client, but also how best to work alongside one.
Shelby relies heavily on her design background to create custom pieces for her clients, be it a head-to-toe look from scratch, or adding carefully crafted details and embellishments to get a piece just right. This special skill set, combined with years of rich and varied experience in the industry, gives Shelby a unique advantage and perspective to provide clients with style as individual as they are.
