Wavy Women highlights various industry professionals currently leading the game with their brazen creativity and forward-thinking style.
The latest to star in our recurring Wavy Women series is London-based stylist, Nayaab Tania. At just 20-years-old, Nayaab has already had the pleasure of working with some of the biggest names in the business, styling editorials for PAPER, i-D, Nike, oki-ni, IDOL Magazine, Supreme, adidas, MISBHV and more.
We asked Nayaab a few questions to find out more about her personal style, what first piqued her interest in fashion, her greatest career achievements and more. Read what she had to say below, then peep our last feature with Milan’s “It Girl” designer, Chiara Capitani.
What was the thing that first got you interested in fashion?
My mum is a tailor and I’ve always been around fashion since a young age, so it came pretty naturally to me.
What was your first big gig?
An editorial for PAPER magazine!
Tell us about your day to day.
I’m either running around at PR showrooms pulling clothes, fitting models, styling on set or in Selfridges picking outfits out for clients.
If you weren’t doing what you are now, where would you work?
I honestly couldn’t imagine myself not being a stylist – I’d be lost!
Describe your current style.
Anything with a pair of Chanel sneakers.
Who or what are you currently inspired by?
Jonny Johansson, I admire how he’s steered Acne’s success.
What is the greatest accomplishment of your life so far?
To be able to say that I have styled an adidas campaign at age 20 is amazing I guess! Also, being paid for doing something I love.
What is your most treasured item of clothing?
All my Chanel sneakers.
Where do you want to be in the next five years?
I want to be living in NYC without a doubt, and to be able to walk down Times Square looking at a campaign in a window that I have styled.
It would be a dream to style an Acne Campaign, in the middle of a desert.
