We had the good fortune of connecting with Logan Renee and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Logan, how do you think about risk?
How do I feel about taking risks? OMG, where do I begin? Honestly, at the beginning of my styling career, I didn’t take risks at all. “But what if it doesn’t work out?” would always play over and over in my head, plus I was shy. So I played it SUPER safe, only working with people I knew. Terrible idea because my career was VERY stagnant. It wasn’t until I broke out of my shell and started talking to more people in my industry that I noticed taking risks was the ONLY way my dreams could become my reality. There were times I would fly out for an opportunity knowing I had no money, but I did it to gain the experience and exposure. Once I started putting myself out there, I got booked from being referred by previous clients. In the fashion industry, word of mouth will get you much further than anything else. Your network is your net worth! To this very day, some opportunities still give me butterflies, but I take a deep breath and put my big girl shoes on. I have worked with news stations across the DC metropolitan area, NY Fashion Week, stage plays, brands, music videos, Quarantine Thick, 2 Chains ft. Mulatto being one of them. I say all this to say taking risks is a must. If I didn’t get over my fears, I would not be who I am today.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am a Creative Director and Fashion Stylist, meaning I do everything from creating a concept for a project down to dressing the models, influencers, public figures, etc. What sets me apart from others is I am not afraid to be ME. At first, I come off shy but, once you get to know me, I am the complete opposite and, it’s an experience. (lol) I am most proud of being a single mother that follows her dream no matter the obstacle. My goal is to show my son that he can do anything he puts his mind to; the sky is the limit. If it were not for my mentors and social media, I would not be anywhere near where I am today. Don’t get me wrong; I still have a journey ahead of me but, I’m far from where I started. Following your dreams is NEVER easy if it were everybody would be doing it. You have to keep going, I know it sounds cliche, but it is the truth. You have to put yourself out there to get exposure and learn from any mistakes you might make. I have learned that work ethic and good personally get you far; talent is good too but, if you have all three, you are good to go! I want the world to know it is ONLY the beginning for Logan Renee, so get ready to see more of me. (lol) If you are passionate about something, never give up and be okay with the slow process. If I can do it, can YOU too!

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I have only been to the area for work, so I can’t answer this question honestly. (lol)

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
GOD, my #1 homie! I would also like to shout out my mentors, Lana Rae and Kenny KAS. Andre (photographer) and Princess (producer & casting director) for referring me to different opportunities. Delali (CEO of Fearless Sports) for trusting my vision. My family and friends for all their love and support.
