Years ago, I had the chance to introduce the BE-Style audience to a talented individual that was wreaking havoc on the industry with his creative take on fashion and style. Our paths crossed once again as he was one of the creative Stylistic Geniuses BEhind the BE Magazine: Hip Hop Style shoot. This young man is only guilty of offending the eyes of those not ready to accept the forward motion of imagery through garments and textiles. A star in his own right and one of the top stylists in the industry, Renaldo Nehemiah is the man BEhind numerous celebrities’ impeccable looks. His clientele ranges from Ludacris, Tank, Janelle Monae, T.I., Rich Homie Quan, August Alsina, Anthony Hamilton, Netta Briella, Trinidad James, and many more. He’s BEen called upon for an array of exclusive fashion events including the Music, Fuse, and Fashion show where he created one of kind looks for Vibe Magazine, Macy’s, and The UPN Network. His work has also graced the pages of the December 2006 issue of Vibe, GQ Magazine, the May 2013 XXL freshmen class cover, and Flaunt Magazine. Renaldo has had a hand in every facet of entertainment. He has handled styling for the popular DJ Khaled’s hit, “I’m So Hood,” and the 2013 edition of BET’s Rip The Runway. He also worked BEhind the scenes for the Good Music/Hustle management team, home to Kayne West. They have BEen deemed the industry’s “BEst dressed label,” so it’s only fitting that they would call on Renaldo Nehemiah. A budding household name, he remains humble and focused on what’s to come. “I’m not just a stylist, but also the future of industry executives. I plan on expanding and exceeding everything I’ve done,” states the stylist to the stars. Gone are the days of predictable wardrobes, Renaldo Nehemiah has reinvented what it means to create looks. All while he continues to create new ways to live his dream.
