Sisters and FIDM Grads Are Successful Stylists

Born in Whittier, California and raised in nearby La Habra, Ashley Guereque and Brittany Guereque attended St. Paul High School before receiving their A.A. in Visual Communications and B.S. in Business Management from FIDM. The Hollywood stylists and sisters recently returned to campus to co-host the Styling Workshop at FIDM Fashion Club Day. We caught up with the duo to learn more about their exciting careers and how FIDM helped prepare them for the industry.

You both work in the industry as stylists. What are you best known for?
BG:
I’ve had many experiences in styling such as live TV, live events, public appearances, e-commerce, red carpet, personal styling, and online styling. I live to experience a new and different day when I wake up for work. Every day for me is such an adventure. 
AG: We both began our career interning right out of high school at E! News. I began to venture out working at places like the Rachel Zoe Studio and NBCUniversal where I continued to grow at E! Entertainment. I then worked my way up to styling the lovely Giuliana Rancic. I most recently made the switch under the NBC umbrella over to Access Hollywood. My path has been unforgettable and exciting every step of the way and can’t wait to continue!

Was there a particular look/job you're most proud of or excited about?
BG:
I got a call on a Monday asking if I wanted to style Demi Lovato's dancers and band for Good Morning America in New York. Ever since I was a little girl I wanted to go to New York! As a child growing up I loved Demi Lovato. I got to dress her team for the performance in Central Park and for the Billboard music concert. To this day I still think about the smile I had on my face when I got that phone call. I hope and wish that every girl has an exciting experience like this. 
AG: Getting to work under Rachel Zoe was an absolute dream come true. Then having my work being featured on Vogue on the red carpet with Giuliana Rancic was definitely a “pinch me” moment. By far my most favorite one was the last one we did for the 2021 Oscars. I also recently had the privilege of working on a shoot featuring Cindy Crawford. I have been able to experience the most incredible clients, and mentors that have led me to endless opportunities along the way. I am beyond grateful for the 9 years of working in this industry. 

How did FIDM help prepare you for your careers?
BG:
FIDM helped prepare me in so many ways! Just mentioning to people I went to FIDM helped me in so many ways. The Business Management program opened up my eyes to the creative side of business and I loved it! 
AG: FIDM played a huge role in setting us up for success. It opened doors for us to be able to get deep knowledge and understanding of the industry.

How was it co-hosting the Styling Workshop at FIDM Fashion Club Day?
BG:
All I want to do is give back and show people that anything and all things are possible. Even if it seems out of reach, dream big and don’t think anything else. I think what was so interesting was 10 years ago when I first started, styling was not really much of a thing. I feel like I was a part of the many few that wanted to be a stylist. Going to this event, everyone out there wanted to be a stylist and that was such a cool experience.
AG: Amazing! Being able to share our story and help young people see that whatever your heart desires is absolutely attainable was inspiring to us as well. We love paying it forward and giving back. It was done to us and all we can hope for is to continue to pass the message along. It was also kind of fun being front stage instead of being behind the scenes. 

Is there anything else you'd like to share? 
BG:
You have to put yourself out there but know that whatever is it will come to you if you put yourself in the right situation. Something I also have learned throughout the years is to give yourself new goals and always try to be better than the old you and no one else. You are your biggest hero and biggest competitor. Look back and be proud then look forward and keep making that little you so proud. 
AG: I am huge on manifesting. As a kid my mother would say, “Don’t say if, say when.” I used to think she was silly, but now I find myself jotting down my next dream and saying “When.” So believe in what you want everyday. Envision yourself living that dream, surround yourself with those who believe in it, too. I guarantee that dream you used to daydream about in your high school history class will be your reality one day.
