Posted: 17th August 2014

Handily enough for us, Luci Ellis happens to be best friends with former BabyFace girls Leonn Ward and Theresa Davies. This is especially serendipitous when you consider that together they form the perfect little fashion puzzle; Leonn behind the camera, Theresa in hair and make up and Luci, who is an all round super-stylist. Born and bred up north, Luci is happiest eating sausage rolls with her mam and nephew. However her job means she often finds herself in more glamorous climbs. Luci likes to keep herself busy- her client list is prodigious; Adidas, Billionaire Boys Club, Dazed & Confused and Hypebeast. She is also Fashion Editor of The Forum; a Swedish bi-monthly magazine, that covers everything from art, fashion and lifestyle, and reaches a cheeky 150,000 readers per issue.

We crushed on Luci’s work with Chynna Rogers for Viper Mag (pink fur is mandatory at BabyFace HQ) and she recently styled Lil Siva’s video Mabel which will have you reminiscing about summer holidays, mastering a fat-knot tie, and misspent afternoons hanging out at the bus stop after school. With plans to go to New York in October to work with some heavyweight hip-hop photographers, style more music videos and work on a couple of little creative projects 'to keep the creative juices flowing' Luci is commanding our interest. What is she most excited about? 'A top secret business venture with Miss Theresa Davies'.
