Stevie Dance is a photographer, a filmmaker, a creative director, a fashion director, a writer and a strategist.
As a multi-medium hybrid artist, Dance is regarded amongst her peers for her intimate portrayals of optimism, the female gaze and her particular attention to creating compelling choreography and culturally distinct, visual offerings.
Dance is considered unique and versatile for her ability to work across many mediums in tandem.
Dance has simultaneously photographed and styled campaigns for such clients and publications as Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, Vogue Italia, POP Magazine, Superga, Bergdorf Goodman, Levi's and Adidas to name a few. Her foray into advertising work has led to her emergence as a filmmaker, a medium in which Dance is deeply inspired by.
Since 2011, Dance has held the position of co-fashion director at the bi-annual fashion and art journal, POP magazine, conceptualizing her work, executing it, and expressing herself technically and artistically under her own creative direction. Dance does this by photographing, casting, producing, styling and art directing her editorials and covers, in their totality. Her visual editorial work is often accompanied by the written word in the form of an essay.
In 2018 Dance launched The Feel Studio, a sustainably run Californian denim brand. As the hands-on principal, she has been intimately responsible for the brand’s creative direction, strategy, product design, sustainability initiatives, message and communication. She has photographed and art directed the brand’s visual offering, in its entirety.
The Feel Studio has been featured by The New York Times, Vogue, WSJ, Harper’s Bazaar, New York Magazine’s The Cut and was included by Forbes on their 2019 “Emerging Brands to Watch” list.
Dance stylistically led the widely acclaimed OFF-WHITE fashion week presentations since the brand’s Paris debut in 2016 until Feb 2020. In collaboration with the designer/founder Virgil Abloh, she has acted as the brand’s head stylist, fashion director and consultant across all OFF-WHITE runway presentations, consulting on every major seasonal offering for both the Women’s and Men’s collections of the past 5 years.
Prior to that, she was a freelance stylist, creative director and consultant working across an array of mediums, clients and culturally significant projects for the last decade living in New York.
