REBEL PROFILE: Waiton Farrell, Made to Measure Fashion Stylist for K.E.P. San Francisco
What do you do at Klein Epstein & Parker?
I am a Fashion Stylist and Made to Measure Specialist at our San Francisco store.
What or who influenced your style?
My style is influenced by my love of the dark and the whimsical. I love a polished look, but always incorporate a unique and unexpected detail.
What are staples to your style?
I love long coats, boots with heels, and skinny jeans.
Who's you favorite musical act?
I love anything by Eliza Rickman, Audra Mcdonald, or Renee Fleming. They're vocal goddesses!
What's an important lesson that you've learned about business?
Developing your craft takes time and patience, and building a book takes integrity. Never try to force a relationship with a client just so that you can take their money. Give a client what they need and they will come back to you for life.
What do you do for fun?
I am a classically trained bass-baritone and I have a fashion concert series called Starch & Glitter, so I enjoy preparing for our events and collaborating with local designers. I also love champagne bars, video games, and horror movies.
What makes you a Rebel?
I've always pursued the path that resonated with me, regardless of the expectations of others. That makes me come across as passionate and maybe even a bit over-dramatic at times, but one thing I've never been called is boring!
