His name is Ira J. Perry, a stylist and the real definition of today’s fashionista.
Ira’s motto, which is one that he lives by, and that is “I am fashion”
“I really like connecting to people through clothing” Ira said during our phone conversation, “doctors do it by being hands on, some artist do it through song but for me it’s all about your wardrobe”.
“Wardrobe-ing someone through clothing is my thing because I have an eye for detail.” “Fashion is my life, my love and my passion.”
Ira works with both men and women within his clientele and as a straight man, he can appreciate styling both sexes however he said “He can always appreciate seeing a well-dressed sexy woman.”
Mr. Perry gravitated toward fashion because, fashion was his environment growing up as a kid.
We came from a well dressed family; which is why Ira can appreciate fashion and style.
Mr. Fashionista is not only my cousin and my heart, but he drove his fashion point home, when he reminded me why, we love the movie “Mahogany” so much and how Diana Ross’ fashion was so on point!
He talked about the fashion in that movie, particularly the scene when Tracy Chambers (Diana Ross’ character), walked into that fashion agency wearing the flared fitted dress, with the cape and wide brim hat; carrying a clutch wearing the pumps to match.
We both agreed, fashion such as Diana Ross’ wardrobe in Mahogany, may only be found today in thrift shops. Ira knows this, because he thrift shop (s) as often as he can.
Currently working in a corporate setting as a fashion consultant, Ira is based in New York city and affiliated with the Thomas Faison Agency.
He has previously worked with individuals such as, “Kiss the DJ”, “Master of the mix”, a recent reality series and many other high-end associates.
