I’m Jennifer Tarbell, a Brooklyn based artist specialized in fashion writing, styling, and photography. I delve into the fashion industry in 2016 when I moved from my home in Sacramento, California in pursuit of studying fashion at Pratt Institute.
In 2018 I began working alongside editorial stylist Jaime Kay Waxman, as a wide-eyed intern I was enthralled by the industry - specifically the synthesis of clothing and photography to create a persuasive image. This sparked my analyzation of the power of clothing through writing, styling, and photography.
I continue to freelance in the styling field for e-commerce, editorial, advertising, and celebrity. In the last year I’ve assisted for clients such as Allure, Teen Vogue, Sunday Times Style, COACH, and DVF. I now major in Critical Visual Studies, with a minor in Fashion Design. This allows me to research history, culture, theory, writing, and how these subjects contextualize fashion and the visual image.
Before beginning a career in the fashion industry I was a fine art acrylic painter, and a journalist for my school newspaper, “The Gazette.” In 2016 I received a third place award from both the Journalism Education Association of Northern California, and California Press Women.
