Alizé Demange 23 London
Categories: Fashion, Stylist

Posted: 10th December 2014

Demange. Alizé Demange. No seriously, that’s our newest BabyFace girls’ genuine name (rushes to deed poll website). Meet Alizé; creative consultant, freelance stylist and co-founder of online magazine, Glen Coco. Alizé's upbringing was eventful, in her own words,‘growing up in a mixed race French household there was nothing short of funny shit happening all the time. Our customs mainly consist of eating, being ridiculously honest/borderline rude, arguing, and then making up.’

Foremost, Alizé is a stylist, and her wardrobe is on point, describing her style as ‘quiche ghetto fab'. One trip to Alizé's Instagram feed and you’ll be re-thinking your wardrobe; think denim, sportswear and more going out dress ideas than you’ll ever need. Alizé sites her nan as her ultimate icon, because she taught her ‘how to be a G in life and how to be a G with clothes’-word. For the record, Alizé's bucket hat game is on a level with Riri on that Oui Magazine cover flex.

If you’re not familiar with Glen Coco, what’s wrong with ch’all? GC is an online magazine showcasing the biggest and best ‘power girls’ that are coming up roses through the creative industries and Alizé describes the project as 'her biggest baby’. GC is a female focused lifestyle brand that Alizé co-founded with Ariana Remuinan. The girls have interviewed the likes of SZA, Sasha Keable and a rather unknown name, model, Cara Delevingne. GC produces tons of original content that’s well worth pouring over (break up advice, celebrity love stories re-told and pieces explaining just exactly what ‘girl code’ is). Most recently they have collaborated with collage artist Tagen Donovan and stylist Pippa Alice Evans on their Burn Book shoot with Anti-Agency’s Constance.

As a freelance stylist Alizé has worked with Trapstar, Adidas, Kyle De'volle, Miss Dynamite and Rita Ora. She explains her girl band aesthetic as a symptom of watching too much Buffy The Vampire Slayer and owning excessive amounts of Hello Kitty merch and trainers (preach). Did we mention she's also a Creative Director?…for high street brand Dark Pink LDN? Their SS15 collection which Alizé co-designed drops in January ’15 and we’re excited- last season they had the ultimate nude spaghetti dress of your dreams.

Currently Alizé is working on her baby Glen Coco; she’s planning a print and installation exhibition for February 2015 and on launching a GC zine and accessories line. Your girl also co-curates a night called Familia dedicated to friends and family. If you're looking to track her down, she's currently hibernating underneath a duvet but planning a comeback in 2015. Oh, and by the way, she’s 23…

TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF AND WHAT YOU DO FOR A LIVING:Errr I guess I'm a stylist because that's been my greatest aim I've had the chance to work on some great stuff with great people Adidas, Trapstar, Kyle Devolle, TrendsetUK but my biggest baby is co founding a website called Glen Coco, an online mag showcasing what's new, current and amazing with power girls that are coming up roses within our creative scene in London and internationally .. Fashion editorials, articles, reviews, interviews .. The works! We encompass a new girly lifestyle so keep your eye out for our products on the way and events we curate. I also co curate an event called Familia a night dedicated to our friends and family and I'm creative director for a new online high street women wear brand called Dark Pink which I love doing .. ❤️HOW WOULD YOUR FRIENDS DESCRIBE YOU IN A SENTENCE?I genuinely had to ask them .. they said..."beautiful creative Panda who goes from Princess to Monster real quick". I think that means i'm an advocate for tough love :(WHEN ARE YOU HAPPIEST?Generally in front of a movie or in front of the sea preferably with my babes . FAVOURITE PLACE TO EAT/SHOP/HANG OUT?My favourite place to hang out is probably my nans house and there is always something good to eat there :D but in the real world I just like being with my friends whenever we are it becomes a fave spot .. Internationally though Kats Deli NYC I fell in love with that place I really like jewish food.WHAT’S YOUR BEST ADVICE?Just keep going there's no time to stop, you can't stay stagnant in anything you are doing. WHAT IS YOUR MOTTO?Living by the laws of attraction .. Not a motto I suppose but definitely what I live by, positive energy.WHAT WORDS OR PHRASES DO YOU MOST OVERUSE?I'm not the most well spoken person I use so much slang in my speech which I'm working on reducing, proper London girl I am lol. I am partial to the word quiche haha :) and i really enjoy all catchphrases from The Simple Life - Loves It.SONG TO BE PLAYING AS YOU ENTER THE CLUB?Giggs - Look what the cat dragged in .. Only because ironically that has actually played numerous times when I have entered the dance :/WHAT THREE THINGS WOULD BE ON YOUR RIDER?Pizza, a small dog for entertainment purposes - i live for owning a pomeranian at some point and a disposable camera -- I love taking snaps on disposables they feel much more real than doing it from the gram of my iPhone. BIGGEST LIE YOU WERE TOLD/THAT YOU TOLD AS A KID?I lied all the time to my parents about where I was and what I was doing in my teens. My mum said recently I was a terror .. I beg to differ I don't think I was as bad as my friends but generally bunking off school and going out under the pretence of walking the dog but really going to see a boy was probably the best lie... AND FINALLY...WHO IS YOUR NEXT BABYFACE GIRL SUGGESTION?Who: Ariana Remuinan
Why: My partner in crime and whom I co founded Glen Coco with, talented writer and flourishing in PR .. One to watch
