Getting to Know Style Squared - Q&A with Yalda Kazemi

Now that we have a few style videos, we thought it would be a great time to get to know us a little bit better. We formed Style Squared a few months ago, and we love sharing style advice with you - but where does our inspiration come from? What are some of our favourite pieces and colours? How did we start working as fashion stylists? This and so much more, starting with Co-Founder Yalda Kazemi!

Yalda is a mom, fashion stylist and entrepreneur. She was recently the official stylist for the show, Style in the City on Global Calgary & City TV, stylist for the Calgary chapter of the international business speaker series, Fuck Up Nights (which takes place in 86 countries) as well as a Contributing Editor/Copy Editor for Houston based Luxur Lux Magazine, which focuses on fashion, female empowerment & entrepreneurship. She is also an advocate for raising awareness about mental health, particularly postpartum mental health, by partaking in various initiatives to help raise awareness and funds after having personally experienced the ailment.

Yalda's love of fashion goes back to childhood, as she's always had a creative eye, with an innate ability to conceptualize styling unique and interesting ensembles.

Her educational background provided her with a B.Sc. in Psychology & a B.Comm. (Marketing), as well as currently receiving formal training in fashion styling from the New York Institute of Art & Design.

With a highly successful career spanning almost ten years in corporate oil & gas (Policy/HR), she left the corporate world and pursued her passion as a fashion stylist. Providing all ranges of styling services, from TV, editorial, special events, personal styling, and educational sessions such as Style Squared, Yalda continues to share her love of fashion as a means to further educate and inspire men and women to look and feel their best.

Coming Up Next - Q&A Video with AldonaB, and our Shop on a Budget Event on February 24th at RedBloom Salon! Make sure you get your tickets and join us for a great ladies night.
