Journey Began... March 2007
After working at H&M for 7 years as a window display designer
and receiving every promotion and opportunity that she wanted,
Stacey knew it was time to move on to bigger and better things.
With no clue what the future held, a drive to expand both personally
and creatively as well as a very encouraging talk from her best
friend, Stacey soon took a leap of faith, left her full-time
job and created—Divine Styling International.
It is "my personal vehicle for creative expression and
celebration of Color, Line, Form and Texture." - SJ
Since starting Divine Styling International in 2007,
Stacey Jordan styling’s have been featured in numerous
print campaigns, commercials, films, music videos, red carpet
and personal appearances.
Besides Divine Styling International, Stacey is also a part
of " The Hitsquad Collective" a creative team of directors
and producers which has creatively produced content for Ford,
TV One and some of the biggest names in the gospel industry
When asked "What was the hardest part of starting your
own company?" Ms. Jordan states, "Leaving my financial
comfort zone with no money saved to serve as a cushion and not
really knowing how to ask for help when needed. At times I didn’t
have money for food, a metrocard or my bills. I knew I was doing
the right thing by pursuing my career as a wardrobe stylist/costume
designer so I was convicted to keep pushing.
When asked "What was the easiest?" Ms Jordan laughs..
"At times when I needed it most, I'd find money and metrocards
on the street, receive a call for a job or from a friend that
felt I was quietly struggling and wanted to help out in anyway
they could. When one leaps with faith, the net definitely appears.
In essence, the easiest part was knowing I was always taken
care of . My process has helped to develop my character and
I've worked with some of the best Directors, Cinematographers,
Models, Actors and Photographers in the industry from fashion,
film and music. My projects just keep on getting bigger and
