Known to many as Fidge Fab, Fidge began her start as a fashion designer and stylist 10 years ago. Right after college she began working in Jamaica as a stylist assistant on international movie and commercial sets working with Maxine Walters Productions. After spending 8 months in Jamaica working she then moved to Milan Italy for 2 years getting her masters in Fashion Design and working with fashion power house designer Roberto Cavalli. In 2008 she moved to New York City to further pursue her dreams in fashion as a stylist and to get her own label going. She has assisted some of the top stylists in New York City like Keegan Singh, Laura Ferrara and Amanda Kim. During those years she helped to style many collections during NYFW such as BCBG, Jen Kao and Zac Posen along with styling campaigns for Rolex, Movado (with brand ambassadors Kerry Washington and Amanda Seyfried), Estee Lauder and Clinque. After gaining much knowledge in the industry she branched out on her own styling campaigns for Japanese handbag companies like Bodhi Bags and Harajuku wear. During her time freelancing she got a great opportunity to work as a lead wardrobe stylist at NBC Universal. That opportunity allowed her to style A list celebrities for TV and for red carpet which then catapulted her to start her own company The Style Factor which is a full styling and design company .
