KWAME WATERS

Fashion, Beauty and Media Multi Hyphenate

WHAT BECOMES A LEGEND MOST?  BY THE STANDARDS OF TODAY’S EVER-EVOLVING BEAUTY, FASHION AND ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRIES, THE ANSWER IS CLEARLY ABILITY, VISION, ACCESS AND UNDERSTANDING.  GROOMING AND STYLE EXPERT KWAME WATERS UNDOUBTEDLY POSSESSES ALL OF THE ABOVE.  A NEW YORK NATIVE, ATLANTA AFICIONADO, CURRENTLY BASED IN LOS ANGELES, WATERS HAS SUCCESSFULLY ELIMINATED BOUNDARIES AND EFFORTLESSLY WEAVED HIS INDIVIDUAL TALENTS IN WARDROBE, MAKEUP, EDUCATION AND MASS MEDIA INTO ONE OVATION DESERVING SYMPHONY.

CUTTING HIS TEETH BY OUTFITTING COVETED MEMBERS OF ATLANTA’S ENTERTAINMENT SCENE WITH STATEMENT-MAKING CLOTHING AND FLAWLESS FACES, WATERS WAS FIRST NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED AS A FORCE IN FASHION WHEN HIS WORK GRACED THE COVERS AND INTERIORS OF A BEVY OF LIFESTYLE MAGAZINES INCLUDING JET, EBONY, ESSENCE, UPSCALE AND MEN’S BOOK MAGAZINE VIA THE LIKES OF KANDI BURRUSS (ENTERTAINER/ENTREPRENEUR), MUSIQ SOULCHILD (RECORDING ARTIST), SEAN GARRETT (WRITER/PRODUCER), JACOB LATIMORE (ACTOR/RECORDING ARTIST) AND JAY ELLIS (ACTOR).  THIS PRESENCE IN PRINT CAUGHT THE ATTENTION OF TELEVISION PRODUCTION EXECUTIVES AND WATERS WAS IMMEDIATELY TAPPED TO BE THE IN-HOUSE IMAGE-MAKER ON BRAVO TV’S THE KANDI FACTORY, HOSTED BY REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA FRONT WOMAN, KANDI BURRUSS-TUCKER.  BETWEEN JUGGLING THE DEMANDS OF STYLING, COSTUME DESIGN AND BEING THE CITY’S STANDOUT MALE GROOMING GURU, WATERS MATRICULATED AT THE ART INSTITUTE OF ATLANTA AND RECEIVED A BA IN FASHION MANAGEMENT, BECOMING HIS STEPPING STONE TO HIS PREVIOUS TENURE AS A PROFESSOR AT THE HIGHLY-REGARDED, ART-ENHANCING INSTITUTION. 

2018 PROMISES TO CONTINUE TO BE A CELEBRATORY MOMENT OF RECKONING FOR THE STYLE EXECUTIVE, HE CONTINUES HIS ONGOING DUTIES AS THE OFFICIAL WARDROBE SUPERVISOR OF NETFLIX'S HIT REBOOT OF QUEER EYE & AS GROOM & STYLE EDITOR OF BUDDING & EXCLUSIVE 26 'MEN'S LUXURY' MAGAZINE.  AS HE COORDINATES HIS LIFELINE FOR MULTI-MEDIA LIFESTYLE PROJECTS BETWEEN ATLANTA, LOS ANGELES AND NEW YORK, WATERS CONTINUES TO BE A LIVING PERSONIFICATION OF THE WORD “RENAISSANCE”. HIS ABILITY TO SWITCH HATS AND EXCEL IN EACH POSITION IS A CLEAR FORECAST OF HIS FUTURE AND HE’S ONLY JUST BEGUN!
