As Seen On


My Process

There’s not a lot that Pilar hasn’t seen in her 20 plus years working in the Fashion industry. New York City Fashion is always evolving and always on the go. So, too, is Pilar. As a Fashion stylist, Pilar helps clients evolve their image, produce ideas for photoshoots, select clothing & accessories for events, filming and photoshoots, work for fashion magazines, television and more.

Sessions, Not Consultations

Many stylists offer consultations with their clients. Pilar believes in going above and beyond the industry standard. To truly identify what her clients needs are, she engages her clients in intimate sessions aimed at developing and evolving their unique style; Pilar listens, is objective, and with a keen level of expertise is able to intuitively deliver what her clients desire most.

Listening and Understanding

Pilar loves what she does and it shows in her work. She knows peoples’ bodies and how they “wear” clothing. This natural ability to observe and to understand her clients helps Pilar create a deep personal and inner connection with her clients.
After a session with Pilar, her clients have often said “I need a Pilar in my closet!”


About Pilar

Smart Advice for that perfect fit is my mantra

I am a HIGHLY MOTIVATED & PASSIONATE Senior Stylist and Costume Designer, with a professional awareness and consideration of all teams that support the outcome.

I have been been partnering with major networks to craft imaging for on air talent for over 20 years. Currently, I consult with large-scale companies as in MSG Media, CNN Worldwide, MTV Networks, A&E, ABC and F/X among many others.

I have high energy & passion for creative style that is evident across my various roles working as a celebrity stylist, costume designer and personal consultant. Whether I am leading a team as a supervising stylist at networks like MSG Media and MTV or costume designing for major network shows like ABC/Good Morning America along with Live! With Kelly & Michael.

Fashion is always changing, evolving, and that's how people are, too. Fashion is a lot more connected to our emotions and subconscious than many people think. That's where my expertise comes into play. I am able to work with people and find that thing that makes them unique, that makes them tick and I work with them to help bring out their true identity and show it to the world around them.
