Iranian-born, Laurel Canyon-based Maryam Malakpour offers a glimpse into her life as a long-time rock’n’roll stylist and creative director

Maryam Malakpour is a fashion stylist and creative director of the luxury shoe label NewbarK. To list the roster of talent that she has worked with is to paper a fan’s dream bedroom: from The Rolling Stones, Lenny Kravitz and The Strokes to Heidi Klum and Jennifer Jason Leigh. We talked to her about the attributes of a successful stylist and about how she approaches aesthetics.

How did you come to work in the fashion industry?

My very first job was at a boutique in L.A., Contempo Casuals. I was not even 18 years old! That’s where I learned how to fold. I colour-coordinated the entire boutique every night before closing, making sure everything was perfectly hung and perfectly folded. I am a master folder now, extremely specific with my preferences. I was promoted to assistant manager and would open up stores for them in other regions, hiring people who had to be over 18, when I was not yet myself of age! Later I became a freelance stylist for music videos. The momentum came from there. I went on the Bridges to Babylon tour with the Rolling Stones in 1998. I work with Keith Richards to this day.

What are the attributes of a successful stylist?

Styling requires so much consideration and thorough organisation to ensure everything is ready to go, on a photo shoot or off on the road with a touring artist. Besides having your own sense of style and your own vision, the most important asset is being organised and having a focus on how things will flow.

How do you define your style?

I like classic, iconic pieces. If it’s denim, I gravitate towards real, rigid denim as opposed to stretchy jeans. I also love cowboy and western elements. I’m so drawn to the look, especially if it’s reinterpreted in a streamlined way.

Since coming to Los Angeles you’ve only ever lived in Laurel Canyon. What does it mean to you?

It’s become part of my preference and persona. Laurel Canyon is synonymous with rock’n’roll and that’s what I love. Looking back, I was likely drawn here because of its history with music in an unconscious way.

What else do you take into account as you approach aesthetics?

Style really is a sensibility that comes from within. If you have that eye you can put together anything, break the rules when you can, mixing the patterns and colours or veering away to make a statement.
