Hi there! I am Vanessa Valiente, San Diego’s #1 personal stylist. I was born and raised in San Jose, California before moving to San Diego to get my Costume Design degree in Theatre and Film. In 2005, I began styling for television programs starring the likes of Eric Dane and Joe Manganiello. Since then I have expanded into commercials, catalogue shoots and editorials, dressing fellas like Tony Hawk, but my main focus is personal styling.
As a personal stylist for men, I am passionate about protecting my clients from the waste and misinformation pushed by hungry sales associates and overzealous fashion influencers. I believe it is this passion combined with my efficiency that has made me the most sought after stylist in San Diego with clients flying in from around the world to work with me.
In 2007, I created V-Style to deliver supplemental consulting to my female clients and share my expertise with a greater audience. Since then I have had numerous men ask for the same resource. One even begged. He explained to me that there are no relevant men’s fashion blogs for him to read, and there is a general lack of assistance available to the average style conscious man. He had a point. V-Style for Men was born in 2015. I write this blog with the same intent that I have for my business. Efficient, to the point shopping advice that works for your real life.
Fun Fact: I have been featured in The Washington Post, NBC News, The Business of Fashion, Reuters, and Business Insider.
