About Me

Hunter Thompson is a freelance wardrobe stylist residing in Nashville, Tn. His first introduction to wardrobe was through his father a well renowned tour manager who has worked with everyone from rock legends, Led Zepelin, to R&B crooner Usher, to contemporary Christian artist Amy Grant. Hunter says "I used to watch the wardrobe and hair stylist's transform these people every night and I remember being about 7 or 8 and thinking THIS is what I am destined to do." Hunter has already had numerous accomplishments. At the young age of 18 he was hired as the assistant wardrobe stylist for European pop sensation Anastacia, for her "Live at Last" and "Encore" tour. "Being hired for that job was probably the biggest turning point in my life. It was the first time I had been exposed to actually WORKING on the road and not just hanging out. It was my shoe in the door to do what I have always wanted to do." said Hunter. Hunter has also worked as a hair stylist for numerous fashion shows that have passed through Nashville, including up and coming Afghani designer Tarsian & Blinkley. He has worked with numerous models in New York and LA helping them with their hair and wardrobe.

When asked what he wanted to accomplish here in Nashville he said "I don't want Nashville to be afraid of being different. I don't want them to keep playing things so safely. I have talked to so many of my friends who happen to be what I consider trendy and stylish and even they sometimes say "Oh I would wear that if I was in New York!" :We need to learn that it is REALLY ok to take fashion risks." says Hunter. Hunter wants to expose Nashville to what he has seen around the world, he wants to push Nashville's envelope and challenge everyone not to play it safe with there outlook on their own personal style. He says "I want to bring a sense of awareness here. I want people to be inspired by what they read in Vogue, Elle, W, Bazaar or any other fashion magazine. I would love to see people just try it out. Try wearing something they never thought they could pull off "I want people to know that there are people here who understand this whole fashion scene, people who get it!"
