Liz Teich is a fashion stylist and style expert based in NYC. With a background in both fashion and art direction, she has applied her talents to working on photo and video shoots for a range of clients like TJMaxx, Reebok and Discovery Channel. Liz also had the opportunity to style notable people from Mike Tyson to the founder of Twitter, but she prides herself in finding solutions for the everyday fashionista with her blog Dear Andi, the “Dear Abby” of fashion.
As a native to New York (Long Island to be exact), Liz frequented trips into New York City as a teenager, mostly through her studies in fashion in high school. She became determined to follow her dreams of living in this great city and pursue a career in fashion.
After studying fashion design at RISD during a pre-college program, she then received a BFA from Syracuse University in Advertising Design/Art Direction. She interned and eventually freelanced in nearly every department at the clothing brand Chaiken. After stints as an art director at Saatchi & Saatchi, and then creating ads at the advertising agency Gotham for Maybelline, she used her experience working with stylists and on photoshoots to make the transition into styling. She assisted some of the top stylists in the industry and her well-rounded experience in both fashion and advertising eventually lead to her own career as a fashion stylist, working on advertising and editorial photoshoots. You can view her portfolio of work here.
She always takes pride in finding the latest fashions and designers for her clients—while staying within budget—often mixing high and low, modern and vintage and even started a jewelry line called etc… modern vintage jewelry with this sensibility in mind.
My favorite part of styling is finding a solution to the challenges that come my way, so please send your fashion conundrums (or just say “hi”) to email@example.com or tweet to @dear_andi and the answer may be featured on the blog.
