Vanessa Alonso (better known as Van Van) is a LA-based fashion stylist, creative director and designer.
Alonso has been obsessed with funky fashion since she was a kid, and is now dressing and styling some of the music world’s biggest names, with two clothing lines under her belt: Notavaz and ton Y van.
She mainly works with Mahershala Ali, but her other famous clients include: Augusto Aguilera, Ben Hardy, Big Sean and Miguel.
Alonso met Mahershala on an editorial shoot in 2016. The actor messaged her two weeks later on Instagram and they’ve been working together ever since.
Ali needed to find someone who understood him on a deeper level and she obviously did.
They like to keep things original, respectful [of the event] and classic.
