Andre Leon Tally is no ‘spring chicken’ when it comes to this fashion game. Many young folks may know him from Top Model, but he’s been riding the fashion waves since the late 60’s starting as a personal assistant to artist, Andy Warhol at Interview Magazine.
Talley joined forces with Vogue magazine in 1983 and was the Fashion Editor at Ebony Magazine during the 80’s. He used his fashion knowledge and power to promote young designers. He’s often seen pairing himself with up-and-coming celebs to aid their journey into this fashion world. Talley, is like the ULTIMATE wardrobe and business re-stylist. His knowledge and influence can take a person/brand to the highest hiegts
Most recently, he was a judge on America’s Next Top Model – where he advised new models on the show. Now he’s got his own show on Bravo, airing in the fall. Fashion Stories, will show Talley as an adviser for four fashion design teams as the navigate the fierce world of commercial success. I’m sure Talley’s well known personality will add a bit of sparkle to the show. Can’t wait to see it!!
