We all love Law. The notable runway looks to muse the Zendaya pipeline, a system that industry members and fashion forwards in training try to emulate but could never achieve. The all-hits-and-never-miss stylist is getting their biggest due yet, making history by being The CFDA’s first Stylist Award recipient — which is undoubtedly going to the right candidate.
The Chicago native is in demand now so more than ever, with Kerry Washington, Halle Berry, and Mary J. Blige in his Rolodex. Labeled the Image Architect, Roach is responsible for some of the most iconic looks to as of late to hit the red carpet, magazine editorials, and campaigns, including Zendaya’s modern armor look for the 2018 Heavenly Bodies Met Gala. From his signature “you did what needed to be done” commentary on HBO Max’s Legendary to the recently appointed West Coast Editor of British Vogue, Law Roach continues to grab the hearts of the fashion world with his deep admiration and knowledge of luxury and couture garb.
“I look for clothes that make me feel something. Things that feel exciting or new that I know will stand out on a red carpet and to so many other people,” Roach tells CFDA. “It doesn’t always have to be the prettiest dress. It could be the most interesting one. And that’s really what I’ve always led with.”
