WCW: Fatima B.

I first noticed Fatima as being Swae Lee and Meek Mill’s stylist, however she has been in the industry long before that . 

(some excerts from Complex)
She got her start as Wiz Khalifa stylist and even did some work with Nicki Minaj. She is also a creative director , bringing brilliant ideas to the screen. In 2008, she got her big break, becoming the assistant to Brandon Atherley, who was styling Missy Elliott at the time, and getting to dress Missy’s backup dancers for their performances.After two years of assisting, Fatima’s network grew—“I just had a lot of plugs,” she admits, humbly referring to her subsequent clients, which included Tyga and Christina Milian. She worked as a fashion editor for the now defunct hip-hop magazines Black Beat and Right On!, the latter of which affording her six pages of editorial freedom to style and direct to her heart’s content. Like most young creatives, she leveraged that freedom—despite little to no pay—to her advantage and grew her roster of celebrity clients. “The fact that I don’t have any patience is what kept me moving forward in my career,” says Fatima. Connecting the dots from editorial to personal styling eventually led to her securing work with Nicki Minaj and Wiz Khalifa.

Now we know her as the woman behind the style rebranding of Meek Mill. As she documents her set life on Instagram or in Guatemala with Swae Lee on video sets and fashion week. More recently she has worked with 21 Savage , as we see his style evolving we can definitely thank Fatima .She is dope while maintaining her own life outside of the industry, she is never in any mess and barely speaks online . She said in a couple interviews that she would rather play the behind the scenes role and is a complete homebody when she is not working . She separates her personal life from the internet , there are literally no pictures on her page of anyone but her clients and her. Her style is dope as well , she can be caught in a Chanel rain hat and shorts or Adidas track suit. She is proving she is not just a regular chick from Harlem , she is well traveled and cultured..
