Brad Goreski has been captivated by the world of fashion since picking up his first issue of Vogue at the age of 12. Decked in a signature blazer, bow tie and Oliver Peoples frames and muttering catchphrases and unforgettable one-liners, he was the breakout star of Bravo’s The Rachel Zoe Project,” working as her good-natured assistant. After a highly publicized split last year, Brad has struck out on his own, picking up celebrity clients like Jessica Alba, styling magazine photo shoots and starring in his own show, It’s a Brad, Brad World, on the same network.
