Vance Gamble is a surfacing fashion stylist recognized for his colorful and artistic expression in the fashion, music, and creative arts industry. His affiliations include individuals such as Kendall Jenner, Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian a and many more.
Growing up in Hartford, Connecticut, Vance was always a creative being. At a very early age he fell in love with creative arts and spent most of his childhood expressing himself through singing, acting and dance. He attended various schooling and programing specialized for children gifted in the performing arts.
Although Wardrobe Styling is the definition of his profession today, it wasn’t until Vance attended college that he discovered his love for fashion. Going into school for Theater, Vance’s first taste of fashion arts was during his freshman year at Livingstone College located in Salisbury, NC.
He joined a modeling troupe called Nexx Leval where a group of predominately African American students expressed themselves through music, dance, and fashion combined into one. Vance later became the President of this group and created major moments, traveling across the southern states and taking part in various competitions and fashion shows; all during his time at Livingstone. He later graduated with a BA in Theater Arts.
After moving to Washington, DC and feeling very stagnant in his pursuit into the fashion industry, Vance decided that he would move to New York to aggressively pursue his dreams. He gave himself three months to move from DC to New York and his life has not been the same since.
While faced with the many challenges of New York City, yet determined to create a lane for himself, Vance decided to intern for one year without pay as a freelance fashion assistant. It was his desire to build relationships and make connections that kept him motivated during such an aggressive time. This same hunger is what has granted him the opportunities that have catapulted him alongside some of today’s major magazines, artists and celebrities.
Vance’s latest contributions have been on the wardrobe team of Marni Senofonte. Vance originally connected with Marni for the Christmas Tree Lighting at Rockefeller Center on NBC. He assisted her in styling the country music group, ‘The Band Perry’. He continued to work with Marni on her personal clients, one of them being Beyoncé Knowles- Carter.
Vance’s credits include “Lemonade, The Visual Album”, Beyonce’s 2016 MTV Video Music Awards Performance, the 2016 Tidal X concert, and The Formation World Tour.
Vance Gamble is currently based out of Los Angeles where the same fire of creative expression burns within him.
His desire is to inspire people, making them understand that everything is possible with determination, sacrifice and patience.
