Born in Charleston, South Carolina, Edward Bess would discover his muse early on. With an innate sense of style and attention to detail, Edward has dissected beauty around him for as early as he can remember. “Even as a young boy my mother and three sisters looked to me for beauty advice – a glimpse into my future guiding women to look their best.” At age 15 on a trip to New York City, Edward auditioned for the Professional Performing Arts School to study theater. Edward’s acceptance into the famed Manhattan theater school exposed him to cultural inspirations at every turn. As Edward continued his theater studies, he was approached to consider modeling. At age 18, fully immersed in modeling, Edward moved to work in London. His days were filled with castings and photo shoots as he soaked up the adventure of living abroad. These experiences would further influence and define Edward’s style as he set out to share his vision for women.
