Fatiah has worked with some of the best designers, celebrities,publications, athletes, and entertainers. Check out this exclusive interview with Fashion Stylist Fatiah Rebbekkah Muhammad!








Heavy on fashion: How did you begin your career as a stylist? What inspired you to become a fashion stylist?

Fatiah Rebbekkah: I always was into fashion. I was a kid who watch old Hollywood movies I fell in love with Audrey Hepburn at a young age and I was just so into fashion being exposed to all those beautiful woman as a young girl. My first gig in Fashion I worked as a dresser back stage for Davids Bridal. When doing that I was to report to the Fashion Stylist. Seeing what she did and how she put together all the looks and I noticed she was the vision behind all of this because of her people will be captivated and moved to want to buy and be that bride. I knew I didn't want to design anymore I wanted to be the visionary to bring the clothing to life.





Heavy on fashion:Who are some of the people you have worked with through out your career?

Fatiah Rebbekkah Muhammad:Wow I've been truly blessed for the public they are more excited to here of the celebs and I've worked with quite a few but for me I feel blessed to have learn from the teams of Nylon Bullet Magazine, Vman Magazine Lurve the amazing famous stylist Jessica Bobince who was my mentor so many genius photographers who help refine my eye when I style models from Ford models from so many agencies. But for the people it was fun to work with NFL players especially Alvin Bowen, Jackie Christie and Laura Govan from Basketball Wives, Chef Roble from Bravo Network, Eva Simons international pop star, Amanda Seales of MTV and Vh1 and the list goes on and on.



Heavy on fashion:Who are some of your favorite designers right now?
Fatiah Rebbekkah Muhammad: Oh my goodness, I have a long list but I am in love with Marc Jacobs but I favor his Men's Collection more than anything. Tory Burch is everything to me that collection always keeps me happy and on my toes its always refreshing. As for new designers that many people may not know of I love Empire Mafia by Eric Juno his collection of jewelry is breathe taking and already a celeb favorite. Also Natty paint which is now held in Urban Outfitters.





Heavy on fashion:What advice would you give someone who wishes to pursue a career as a fashion stylist?
Fatiah Rebbekkah Muhammad: Be persistent its really hard and takes a lot of time heart and energy and it gets really really hard so you have to stick in there and push people and push yourself be aggressive and don't take no for an answer ever. The sooner you start the better. Begin to build your port to show people what you can do.


Heavy on fashion:What are the top 5 things every woman should have in their closet?

Fatiah Rebbekkah Muhammad: Well I'll say the basics and the classic pieces you can always utilize to switch up several looks. Must have a white button up for sure this can go for a casual look and even switch up for an interview. Always have a basic denim something that can be worn from day to night. A basic tee of any color can never lead you wrong. A leather or denim jacket according to what kinda of girl you are. Always have a basic shoe whether it is a black flat or a nude pump something that can always be put on with anything. Now if you look at all these items you can create at min 3 different outfits.


Heavy on fashion:What is the biggest misconception about being a fashion stylist? How will you change it?
Fatiah Rebbekkah Muhammad:Well the one thing people assume is that being a fashion stylist is easy people assume we shop all day and do nothing else but play dress-up with people. That pisses me off because its a lot of hard labor and long hours. I've had male friends attempt to help me out for a day and they are left exhausted. Its not easy so for people who think that cool out because its hard. I would suggest people dig deeper before they make that statement.


Heavy on fashion:Finally, Where can my fashion divas and gurus check out your work?
