LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 5, 2013) - Eileen Koch & Company INC. is thrilled to announce the representation of Eric Archibald, stylist and fashionista mastermind behind such stars as Jennifer Hudson, Jennifer Lopez, Usher, Mariah Carey, Britney Spears, and Mary J. Blige. The New York native's talents have defined the style of Hollywood's most elite with classic looks that marry unity with chic edge.
Despite his humble origins, Eric was destined for the world of high fashion. Born and raised in the Caribbean, his mother was a seamstress who constantly found herself besieged with advice, insights and opinions from her young son on what to wear. After moving to New York to pursue his career, Eric immersed himself in the city's urban culture and found himself strongly influenced by such artists as June Ambrose, who he worked extensively with for many years.
Keen to expand and explore the opportunities of the West Coast, Los Angeles proved to be a second skin, and success quickly followed when he was introduced to America as a co-judge and senior stylist on the MTV series, Styl'D.
Eric ensures that his clients maintain a high profile; he recently dressed Jennifer Hudson in a curve-hugging black and white ensemble for her chilling Super Bowl 2013 performance of "America the Beautiful" with the Sandy Hook Elementary students, as well as the 2013 Inaugural Ball where she performed "Let's Stay Together" for President Barack Obama, and First Lady Michelle Obama. Archibald was also responsible for Hudson's tight-fitting wardrobe after she revealed a slinky new figure in late 2012 and he styled her in Dolce & Gabbana for her Nobel Peace Prize Concert. For Jennifer's 2009 Grammy win, Eric was the inspiration behind her knockout origami-themed cocktail dress.
Eric is currently the creative director of Sean John, as well as Jennifer Hudson's clothing line, and his unique work has been featured in national tours (Usher's "8701"), on television in commercials (Target, Burger King, Verizon) and throughout magazines (GQ, People, Glamour, etc.) His celebrity clientele also includes Tyra Banks, 50 Cent, Mariah Carey, and the Dave Matthews Band, amongst a glittering roster of others.
