STYLE EXPERT & MEDIA PERSONALITY
Celebrity Stylist, Fashion Expert and Media Personality, Eric Himel, is hailed as one of the most diverse and uniquely qualified stylists in the industry. His discerning eye, education in fashion design, coupled with knowing instinctively what looks best on his clients make him a force to be reckoned with.
Raised in Toronto and Dallas, Himel immediately hightailed it upon graduation to study at the prestigious Parson’s School of Design in New York City where he trained under Project Runway’s dynamic style guru Tim Gunn. Following graduation, Himel moved to Los Angeles and began his styling career quickly expanding his business across the US and to Canada. The inspiration for Himel’s career came from an early childhood discovery where he adroitly grasped the transformative power of fashion, recognizing and mastering the ability to shape public perception through style and physical appearance. This ultimately was the basis in helping clients create the best version of themselves.
Regularly featured on TV, Himel shares his insights, discusses fashion do’s & don’ts and critiques celebrity red carpet looks for the likes of The Style Network, E!, ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, CW, TMZ, Lifetime, The Hallmark Channel, The LiveWell Network and The Shopping Channel as well as styling editorial shoots and offering fashion tips for top magazines including Elle, InStyle, People, Real Simple, Good Housekeeping, First For Women, Los Angeles Fashion Magazine, CS, The Atlantan, Michigan Avenue Magazine and The Chicago Tribune. Himel also regularly contributes to Us Weekly’s Fashion Police and is a Style Focus Expert for both Life & Style and Closer Magazine. When not styling celebrities or the talking fashion on top rated morning shows, Himel is rattling off his fashion edicts and seasonal personal picks with his infamous Himelisms.
Himel works with an array of celebrities for on-camera appearances, photo shoots and red carpet events easily moving within the world of TV, movies, sports and music including Giuliana and Bill Rancic, Ali Larter, Jenny McCarthy, Kristin Cavallari, Tia Mowry, Pete Wentz, E! News’ Ali Fedotowsky, Hayley Orrantia, Scottie and Larsa Pippen, Rachel Brosnahan, Marina Squerciati, Jane The Virgin’s Andrea Navedo, David Eigenberg, Graham Elliot, Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas, HGTV’s Alison Victoria and The Bachelorette’s Jillian Harris.
Himel’s styling services are complemented by his signature Closet Purge™ – the foundation of his dressing philosophy. He believes everyone should be able to close their eyes and pick out anything from their closet without hesitation or difficulties, put it on, and look amazing, be comfortable in their own skin and exude confidence. Himel maintains having a good stylist is as essential to having a doctor, therapist or personal trainer.
Using longstanding relationships with top stores and fashion houses, Himel services his clients according to their preference: For those clients who prefer anonymity and have busy schedules, Himel offers on-site styling at the location of the client’s choice, be it their home or hotel. For the client that prefers a VIP in-store experience, Himel arranges exclusive, by-appointment-only excursions to stores where he will have a personally selected array of items waiting. Additionally, Himel’s globe-trotting clients may prefer to meet in various shopping destinations for his services or to comfortably rely on him to hand-select coveted items and have them delivered directly to them, even if he has never met the client face-to-face.
Whether simply updating a look, styling a red-carpet event or photoshoot or performing an entire closet & style overhaul, Eric Himel applies his expertise and impeccable taste always surpassing expectations.
