PRINCIPAL STYLIST, OWNER
Andrew B. “Andy” Stewart is masterfully skilled in styling products and providing creative services. His talent not only elevates homes, showrooms and retail visuals, but also takes him all over the world managing red carpets and handling private events.
After leaving New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, a photographer needed help styling packaging images for Springs Industries’ bathroom products. As Springs was around 80% of U.S. market share at the time, he was the youngest person to ever have that account. That opportunity led to aiding in the launch Royal Dalton Bath and styling Lionel Trains, Swarovski, Lillian Vernon, even Pokémon. Inspired by this success, he completed studies in Advertising and Marketing at the Fashion Institute of Technology.
With degree in hand, Andy joined Ralph Lauren's Worldwide Window Team and Interior Teams. Using New York Flagship Stores as templates, these visual presentation teams would interpret all RL products—from fashion to home, baby goods to wallpaper collections—into retail presentations for stores all over the world. Later, Ralph Lauren's Creative Services Department recruited Andy to develop the aspiring stories behind products by creating lifestyle showrooms. Most specifically, he focused on Lauren Home Products in Bedding, Lighting and Furniture, as well as reinterpreting Ralph Lauren Home Collection into Trade Showrooms at the D&D Building in NYC and showroom partners. Andy’s event experience also expanded at RL with the 40th Anniversary Fashion Show, Seventh on Sale, and various occasions for the Hetrick Martin Institute’s Harvey Milk High School.
These talents grew through employment by Ralph Lauren, but he also streamlined his technique at Hermès; on the red carpets of the Tony Awards with Slate PR and the Doha Tribeca Film Festival in Qatar; at events with the incomparable Marcy Blum for Nate Berkus, Lebron James and many more.
His latest extension of services is a niche in real estate. Recognizing that staging an apartment for sale isn’t always necessary, Andy will style the apartment using items already in the home and adding additional details. This process heightens the appeal of the home for a fraction of the cost of staging.
