With a multi-dimensional upbringing, Lorelei Rose Taylor has always lived life on the run. She was born where stars are lonely, then sent across the Southern boarder and into the Northern tundra: a dreadful destination, but in retrospect, a necessary stop along the way.
New York City finally sent an owl at 18. There, she blended a degree in fashion, communications, and the arts at FIT — and took a metamorphic trip across the ocean to continue her studies in the most historically acclaimed art mecca: Florence, Italy. (That was far from the gypsy’s beginning, but the crumbling ledge of her jump.) Spinning from one foreign city to the next, she found herself in people and places, all of which constantly diverted the path she spent meticulously paving — but she never stopped.
Lo returned to New York and racked up a noteworthy resume, accumulating apprenticeships in various industries. (Editor’s note: She also grabbed a bartending license as a backup. Plan A is Plan B only until Plan B dials Plan C and can’t leave a voicemail. Remember that.) After four short years, Lorelei graduated magna cum laude with a double minor in English and Art History — only to realize dreams rarely pay rent and soon pick up a brief but gratifying stint holding the keys to a high-end, contemporary retail boutique. Nonetheless, she kept dreaming. Interviewing: hearing “no,” “if only,” “next time,” or nothing, and doing it all over again. She knew it would only take one yes for the rest to be history.
And so it was. She moved from assisting iconic, industry-leading editorial fashion at Condé Nast to freelancing on top-level beauty accounts, including the number one cosmetics company in America, at one of the most prominent global agencies in the luxury industry — and all before the age of 23. Now, at nearly 24, Lorelei Rose Taylor maintains authority under one of the largest prestige skincare, makeup, fragrance and hair care companies in the world.
For the time being, Lorelei lives in Brooklyn, New York (internally and eternally, she’s tossed under a palm tree). All opinions are her own, and not sponsored unless specifically noted. For opportunities and collaborations, please reach out to Lorelei personally at firstname.lastname@example.org.
