The young stylist Danyul Brown, has been setting high standards in London for being a proud Northern born stylist dressing the countries high profile celebrities. With a list of clients from Conor Maynard to newly highly anticipated artist Jack Garratt, Dan is becoming increasingly recognised for his style and ability to create the perfect looks.

Since studying and graduating with a BA in Fashion Communication and Styling at Middlesex University in London, the 22 year old has found himself at London Fashion Week shows backstage and getting his hands on the latest looks from Louis Vuitton and Burberry, and this is exactly why it’s this young man’s dream job.

His latest client is none other than Jack Garratt, who is at the top of his game, while winning the Brits Critics Choice Award 2016 this year and donning a double-breasted Casely-Hayford shawl suit styled by Dan for the occasion.

Dan has earned his stripes as a stylist in the industry from starting out by moving to London to build his dream career, in which he has been able to style his current clients for appearances with MTV and Vevo and many more amazing opportunities.

With a strong preference for menswear fashion, another of his many happy clients Conor Maynard, has been seen wearing other creations of his with brands like Spencer Hart, Lanvin, and Adidas to name a few.

“I didn’t always know I wanted to work in fashion, I thought I would have gone into graphic design. I interned at Alexander McQueen headquarters when I was 17 in the print design department. It was then I found my love for styling.”

When asked where he would like to be in ten years, from having such a promising start in the fashion industry working at one of the world’s most renowned fashion houses, the young stylist is setting his sights on eventually “being based in LA in the near future- it’s a goldmine for celebrity stylists.”

The Runcorn born fashion newcomer is very humble in how he has been given such a gift, and seems to be so appreciative of the people around him that have made everything possible in his build up to what could be a very personally and financially rewarding life in the future.

“I think over the years the teams that I’ve been a part of, the people I’ve worked on projects with, the tutors who taught me at university, the magazines I read and the designers I follow, have all been a huge part in the development of my career and have influenced a lot of the decisions I’ve made.”

From his work featuring in top publications such as Hunger, Volt, Client and Carbon Copy Magazine, to him now being able to work alongside many other stylists to the current flux of new talent, he is set to be somebody to watch in the near future. Now that Dan has the likes of the Brit Awards under his belt, he is certainly not looking at stopping there, and has the likes of Paul McCartney being a dream client of his.

His debut in this fast pace and buzzing career he has encountered has definitely put him in some privileged positions where he has partied with stars and brushed shoulders with many extremely talented celebrities in the music industry.

Although it is part of becoming a stylist being able to be around global artists, Dan jokingly recalled how he got slightly star struck by one star only recently admitting, “I don’t get star struck very often – it’s my day-to-day job so you get used to it. Although I did nearly collapse when Justin Bieber brushed past me at the Brits! Isn’t he everyone’s guilty pleasure?”

With festival season coming up, he claims it’s his favourite time of year for being creative in his work, and is focusing on the possibility of being on the road with his clients for what is looking to be a promising summer for the newly successful local young man.

When asked if there would be anything he would change about entering the industry he can confidently say that it’s been a “strong, steady ride and I wouldn’t change a thing”.
