Follow me as we journey through the world of fashion stylist Marcy Guevara.
Renisha Marie: Tell the world about your current projects.
Marcy Guevara: Currently, I post videos on my channel, www.youtube.com/themarcyminute, and outfit posts on my blog. I am also developing a series with Lane Bryant, among other things! I do personal styling as well as on-set styling and keep very busy within the plus-size and fashion communities here in LA.
Renisha Marie: What inspired your passion for fashion?
Marcy Guevara: Barbie was my first love as a child. Dressing her up in fabulous outfits was my favorite pastime. It wasn’t until I began working in fashion that I realized I have always loved it. I have never considered myself a fashionista. My degree is in broadcast journalism. I am a television host. I can talk about anything.
Fashion is what has emerged as a theme for me and I have done everything to learn it. Style is something you have innately, but fashion can be learned. I love that what I do helps women feel confident in the skin they’re in. It is so much more than fashion. I want to encourage women not to be limited by size or budget and work on themselves from the outside in.
Renisha Marie: What has been your biggest challenge?
Marcy Guevara: There are so many exciting challenges that come with what I do. It can often be challenging to get a client to try something new and out of their box. My greatest accomplishment is seeing someone feel amazing in a garment they would’ve never dared to try before.
Renisha Marie: What has been your greatest achievement in the fashion world?
Marcy Guevara: Establishing myself as an expert and influencer has been a great accomplishment. When I hit the plus-size scene, I was new and no one knew what to think of me. I believe that people understand me now and know I am here to stay.
I would encourage anyone entering into a new industry to stick it out and commit to your new endeavor. I was so out of my element at first, but worked on my own confidence and love that I have become a leader within this industry; not for my ego, but for all the women who relate to me and are inspired to dress up because of what they see me try.
Renisha Marie: What should we expect from Marcy Guevara in the near future?
Marcy Guevara: Great things!!
Renisha Marie: What motivates you?
Marcy Guevara: I am motivated by the comments, feedback, and positive affirmations that I receive from the women, who watch my videos and read my blog, around the world. Their newfound confidence motivates me and keeps me going.
Renisha Marie: What separates you from other fashion stylists?
Marcy Guevara: I believe there is room for us all, but I think my style is unique and I am always willing to try something new. I love morphing my look, preppy one day, glam the next. There are so many fashion stylists and bloggers in the plus-size world, I think it is important for women to find someone whose body they can relate to, whose style is interesting and who they are inspired by!
