Celebrated fashion stylists Ty Hunter and Raquel Smith hosted a 2nd “Let’s Talk” Networking Event over the weekend in Atlanta, GA. The intimate gathering took place at The Bailey Agency and featured the dynamic duo, who became overnight sensations as stylists for music and film superstar—Beyoncé. Their first Atlanta engagement, which took place in September, was such a huge success that they decided to come back and host another one.
“Let’s Talk” is an opportunity for aspiring fashion stylists, designers, bloggers, writers and models to come together for inspiration, motivation and fellowship. During the three hour event Ty and Raquel revealed how they got started in the fashion industry, how they were able to establish themselves as reputable stylists and how they ultimately started working for Beyoncé. The also talked about their future business goals and personal endeavors. Following their discussion was a lively Q&A session where the audience was able to ask them about their careers, fashion styling techniques and brand building strategies.
In addition to Ty and Raquel, attendees were also able to hear from three of their industry friends and how they broke into the business. That session included two makeup artists as well as noted celebrity hairstylist and wigmaster, Terrence Davison. He is best known for creating cutting edge looks for Trina, Patti LaBelle, Jennifer Hudson and Nicki Minaj. He is also the recent winner of the “Bronner Bros. Hair Battle” that aired last month on BET/Centric.
Atlanta celebrities in attendance included “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” starlet Ariane Davis as well as Keshia Knight-Pulliam.
