Lara Backmender is a stylist for editorial, advertising and celebrity clientele, sought after for her skillful ability to translate creative vision to eye-catching reality. Her love of vintage, appreciation of high design and trained eye for both established designers and raw, up-and-coming talent lend her work the youthful sophistication on which she’s made her name. As an alumnus of Parsons School of Design including a semester at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design in London and a former designer herself, she’s well-versed in a wide range of markets while grounded in her own aesthetic. She has applied this knowledge consulting for top brands including Kate Spade. Lara lives in New York City with clientele on both coasts as well as internationally.
