The artists he has been creative director for, to name a few, are incredible: Zendaya, Céline Dion, Priyanka Chopra, Anne Hathaway, Ariana Grande, Anya Taylor-Joy…. He is one of the first black stylists to be on the crest of the wave and to collaborate with first-rate personalities. We’re talking about Law Roach, the so-called “architect of the image”, who recently surprised everyone by announcing his retirement from the scene. And to “The Cut” he explained the reasons for his choice – which Zendaya has nothing to do with, as we already told you yesterday.
“I will definitely retire 100,000%. No one can say what is forever and what will happen, but right now, and in my mind, I’m definitely retiring from celebrity styling. I don’t retire from fashion, because I love it so much. But the style, in the way that I have been of service to other people, I withdraw from that », she says at the beginning. A farewell to the top, when he was still at the top of her career. “Isn’t it always better to leave when you’re at the top? I think the real reason is that it’s been under construction for a while because, you know, I looked up one day and I honestly realized that I’m not happy. I haven’t been happy, honestly, in a long time. And the culmination of everything that has happened in my career these past few days has pushed me over the edge. And it’s just like, you know what? I’ve done all. I am very grateful that I was able to move and scale in this area as I have. But I can’t say I didn’t do it without suffering », she continues.
A stressful period, which then culminated in the Instagram post that shocked everyone. But about the question that all the fans on the web are asking, which is whether he will continue to follow Zendaya, he says: “People are going to say, ‘Oh, you’re not leaving Zendaya.’ But I don’t have to model Zendaya to be part of her team and her creative team, right? So maybe if I choose not to be his stylist, I can still be his creative director and I can still manage a stylist or however I choose to. I haven’t made a decision. It is giving me the grace to be able to make that decision because we are indeed related. Like, you know, we grew up together. And that’s all I ever asked for, was that the people I worked so hard for would give me grace when I needed it.”
