This is Michael Angelo
We are honoured to introduce to you Michael Angelo. This young and upcoming fashion influencer is certainly one to follow as he is gaining momentum rapidly within the fashion industry. Michael contacted us through the fashion ambassador form and caught our eye with his amazing styling!
I’m Michael Angelo, a freelance stylist and menswear blogger. How I got into fashion was because of what I studied at college which was hairdressing. Whilst doing the course, I fell into fashion as both hair and fashion connect well together. I didn’t know anyone involved in the fashion industry so I created a fashion shout out page via Instagram to promote upcoming brands. No one knew who I was because I would only post brands and not myself in it. After a year of promoting brands, I reached 12K followers on Instagram and changed it into my personal page so people would know who was behind all of the shout outs. Since then, I kept getting approached by the brands I did shout outs to and gave me garments to do a shoot in and gained more exposure from them, then the page grew. I didn’t want to stop from there so I pushed myself over boundaries. When I turned 18 (last year) the first designer I ever did a collaboration with was for Vivienne Westwood Red Label. I’ve been getting tons of campaign shoots and projects after doing that collaboration. Being someone who’s only 18, I would not expect myself to be at a stage where I would receive projects from well known brands such as RayBan, Diesel and much more!
