Ever since I can remember I have always had a passion to write. I gained interest in fashion at the tender age of five. My inner spirit has allowed me to know that I was born to work in entertainment, fashion, and beauty. Now that I’m 35 years old, I can honestly say that everything that I’ve imagined has become reality. I’ve had the opportunity to work in entertainment (Deja 34 Records), and now I’m a Blogger/ YouTuber & Influencer. This blog was originally created as an extension of the former styling firm Closet Fashionistas (CF) which is now known as “Aisha Barnes” The AB Styling firm.
The AB firm gave me a chance to break into the fashion industry. I started out in the company as a fashion intern. Although, fashion is one of my first loves (especially being a creative director on photo shoots), nothing feels more natural to me than writing. I know for a fact Aisha Barnes who is the CEO/Chief Stylist of the firm channeled in on my ability to write just by seeing how happy writing made me feel.
I originally wanted to start my own blog 6 years ago, but Aisha offered me an opportunity to start a blog for CF. I never thought she would allow me to have so much creative control, but she really respected my vision. So much that she decided to give me sole ownership. Since clutches are one of my must haves in my closet I thought the name “Clutch Your Closet” was a suitable name, and so did my colleagues at the time. Now that C.Y.C. has been around for over 3 years, I want everyone to join this journey with me as I find a team and build an empire. My goal for Clutch Your Closet is to make a mark in fashion, beauty, and lifestyle. I want to build a community and create authentic engagement.
My personal attribution is to provide a glimpse inside the world of industry professionals ( that mostly work with celebrities) behind the scenes. All while sharing my personal expertise about fashion, beauty, and lifestyle. People behind the scenes are the people that need to be celebrated for their efforts and hard work. Without them where would the celebrities be?
With the Clutch Your Closet brand you can expect to read interviews with Celebrity Makeup Artist, Wardrobe Stylist, Producers, Photographers and many more. On our Youtube channel expect to view fashion, beauty, and lifestyle/ vlogs to get a glimpse into my personal life.
Now, that we just relaunched with a brand new site and logo expect to learn more about our newest venture a relationship podcast called “The Booze & Bubbly Podcast. Our podcast is based on relationship topics that people are often uncomfortable to discuss. Expect more fashion videos and more exciting content in 2021. I hope this blog will inspire you to see fashion, beauty, and lifestyle as your own canvas without any limits. Cheers to making great content!
