Style on Screen were lucky enough to grab a quick chat with celebrity stylist Nathan Helsel! Nathan is a New York based stylist currently working on Good Morning America getting to dress the likes of Ginger Zee and Amy Robach! See what he had to say!…
Have you always known you wanted to be a stylist? I have not always wanted to be a stylist, I kind of fell into it. I mean that quite litter-lay. I destroyed my knee and started my company during my recovery!
Who’s your favorite celeb you’ve worked with? I don’t have one because they are people just like you and I. They have a different job than most but none the less they’re just people.
If you could style anyone, who would it be? The one person I would love to work with would have to be Carrie Underwood. She is a beautiful person inside and out. She also has the same values that I hold.
Where’s your favorite place to shop? My favorite place to shop is HM and then certain designers like ted baker. But when I’m not working it’s jeans, a tee shirt and a baseball cap for me. I’m just a small town boy from michigan so I like to keep it simple.
Where does your inspiration come from? My inspiration comes from my mom, she was the reason I started to like fashion. I also pull from my vision of what a morning show wardrobe should be like.
What’s it like working with Good Morning America’s Ginger Zee and Amy Robach? (we’re loving Ginger’s outfits lately by the way, those Lisa Perry dresses are to DIE!) Working with Ginger and Amy is amazing. Like I said earlier we are all people with different jobs. Ginger is a meteorologist, Amy is a news anchor and I’m a stylist. It’s very nice because we are all down to earth so we click very well, plus we all have Michigan ties!
How important is social media’s role within fashion? Social media has become the center of fashion in my eyes. It’s putting brands on the map. Allowing us to connect with our fans and fave designers. I think this will play a key role in the next couple of years.
What would be your advice to any budding stylist? My advice to upcoming stylists is this; It takes a lot of hard work and a lot of growth within yourself. Be prepared to go home at night and cry. It’s not an easy road and relationships that you thought were strong may prove not to be. Just stay true to yourself and pave the way for your career and you too can make it!
