Meet Toronto’s Fashion Stylist Shedding Light on Formerly Bullied Creatives
Barbadian-Canadian artist Bobby Bowen uses his authentic eye for aesthetic representation to bring a unique edge to the fashion world. The Toronto-based creative has kept his work close to home styling the likes of Canadian music talents Jazz Cartier, Majid Jordan, Roy Woods, Bambii and Daniel Cesar while still managing to gain international recognition with his against-the-grain mentality. Whether it’s his stylistic vision for a music video, various editorial works, or even for a gender non-binary Nike X NBA campaign, Bowen knows how to keep it real, street, signature, simple, and saucy all in one. Not only has he brought his impeccable sense of steez to a variety of artists and models alike, he’s also giving back to fellow creative minds with a new platform, Bully.
Bowen’s upcoming magazine provides young creatives with the chance to show off their often overlooked or under appreciated talents in fashion, music and design. “So, I’m starting this new magazine, Bully Magazine,” he tells Paper Mag. “It’s for the ones who have been bullied in this industry, and now we’re going to bully back. It’s kind of like the anti-fashion, new rules, whatever you want. It’s going to be very provocative, in your face, loud, and everything goes.” Keep up with the style expert on Instagram and be on the look out for more from Bully here!
