Born and raised in the Midwest, ANDREW GELWICKS found his passion for the fashion industry between the pages of Vanity Fair magazine growing up. Every month, like clockwork, Andrew would haul his mother’s magazine into his room to study the beauty that was haute couture gowns, and stunning celebrities and models. It was from that point on that he knew he wanted to be the person that created beauty through styling. Following his start with Hearst Magazines in the PR Department, Michael Kors, and in celebrity dressing at Starworks Group, Andrew went on to work for Conde Nast with GQ and Teen Vogue. This work exposed him to his first work in styling and celebrity booking, allowing him to gain experience by working with top stylists both in the celebrity world and editorial.
Today, Andrew has become a rising star stylist, known for taking talent to higher levels – where top designers around the world are recognizing his clients, and seeking them out. Striving to make each look its own unique accomplishment, Andrew has established the fashion persona for clients by the likes of Larsen Thompson, Niki Taylor, Camren Bicondova, Tommy Dorfman, Brec Bassinger, Stefania Owen, Sigrid, Meredith Mickelson, Ashley Gerasimovich, and multiple others.
Andrew is inspired every day by people who take the current formula, and turn it completely on its head – challenging him to break the rules of the fashion industry. His different take has been seen in Harper’s Bazaar, Paper, and WWD to name a few. He has also been a featured writer for Harper’s Bazaar, Teen Vogue, Out Magazine, and Huffington Post.
Andrew is a bi-coastal artist based out of New York City and Los Angeles, CA.
