 Lwany Smith Stylist Youtube

Lwany attended the Savannah College of Art and Design where she received a B.F.A. in Fashion Marketing and Management and now works as a stylist, marketing consultant and Youtuber. Having originally attended college for fashion design, Lwany switched over to marketing and styling because of her love for creating stories through clothing and her desire to create a sense of realism in her work. After a few years of styling, she noticed the lack of diversity in the images used by the fashion industry and started to showcase a more diverse range of images through her own work. Her Youtube series “How to 5’2”” offers fashion advice to inspire petite women to dress how they want while flattering their bodies at the same time. Lwany, passionate about doing as much good as she can, is also the founder of ACTVSM Creative whose mission is to create relevant media content that promotes social, political, and environmental reform within the fashion industry. When shopping, Lwany strives to make smart purchases that are at the intersection of four basic requirements: socially responsible, well-made, flattering, and affordable. She describes her personal style as nonchalant yet sophisticated and innocently sexy. Like many petite women, Lwany is frustrated by the frequent misinterpretation of the word ‘petite’ and the lack of options that accompanies it. She hopes that one day more people will understand that being petite has to do with height and proportions not shape and size.
