Rebecca Penton is a Chicago-based stylist and visual designer. She has a BFA in Fabric Styling, and Associates Degrees in both Fashion Merchandising and Advertising Design, all from the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC.
She has recently been working on styling photo shoots, and has made the move into costume and wardrobe for film. Her design experience ranges from private label collections with independent fashion designers and high end textile houses to mass marketed products. She has also been known to delve into product design, textile conservation, and small business consulting for fashion and home products.
Much of her inspiration comes from her colorful hometown of New Orleans, along with the many other cities and countries in which she has lived and visited. She also finds inspiration in nature, music, and the people and culture that surround her on a daily basis. She is obsessed with clever design and things antique, vintage, and/or just plain bizarre.
