We had the good fortune of connecting with Au’mon Wyatt and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Au’mon, what led you to pursuing a creative path professionally?
Honestly, initially I didn’t pursue it. I just enjoyed doing it for myself and you know helping friends and family. I was a freshman in college and I was asked to work a photo shoot for a friend who is an artist and ever since then doors started to open for more opportunities to style and work with amazing individuals.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am a stylist… sounds weird to even call myself that I dont feel like Ive earned it yet to to be honest. To do something creative for a living scares me, anxiety and self doubt always plays a part, but God has given me the ability to see and create things that shock me sometimes that I even think of it. To do anything creative is challenging because there is someone out there doing it as well and is just as good or better, but for me personally I believe what sets me apart is I dont see limits in fashion, I dont mind taking risk. When I am dressing someone I am always going for one goal, and that is no matter the event that my client feels confident. I want the world to see that they will never be able to “figure me out” fashion is always changing and so am I.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
This is the wrong question for someone like me, I am such an introvert and I get the most comfort and enjoyment just being in my apartment. I dont really hang out a lot Im either at home, gym, or doing stuff for my church, or hanging out with my family. I do love brunch.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
First and foremost I want to thank God, I still feel like its only the beginning, but I just thank God for giving me a gift to even begin with. I want to shout out my Mommy and my Pops, Desiree and Fred my mommy fully believes in me and pushes me more than I push myself, My Pops passed two days before Christmas in 2020 and even before he had plans written out and stayed on me to fully commit, believe, and make a passion a career just as he did everyday. I have an amazing family, and a host of friends who support me, push me constantly.
