EXCLUSIVE: June Ambrose Talks Her OWN Fashion Line & The Drama Of Her New VH1 Show

June Ambrose isn't just a master of celebrity A-Lister's fashions.  The YBF has exclusively learned that she's launching her own women's contemporary fashion line!  And that's after her new eyewear line she's launching as well.

 

Check out our Fashion Week chit chat below as we caught up with the styling guru...

You know you love fashion--and your job--when you spend Valentine's Day not with your husband, but at NY Fashion Week festivities.  TheYBF.com caught up with June Ambrose, stylist and the star of her own "Styled By June" VH1 docu-reality show, at LaQuan Smith's Fall 2012 presentation this week (pictured above with the designer):

 

On June's own upcoming eyewear & women's wear collections:

I am launching an eye wear collection with Selima Salaun this March [Selima Optique is a trend-setting, luxury eyewear brand]. It’s a collaborative effort and it's my first collaboration with an established designer. But I am also finishing up my sample collection for my own line--my women's contemporary line.  We hopefully will be in markets for Fall 2012.  You all are the first to have that news!

 

On her upcoming docu-reality show:

I think everyone will be surprised by it. And I wouldn’t call it a reality show, there is some type of format to my show. Something that you have to stay tuned to and definitely watch. My kids aren't really involved, but they do make a guest appearance.  They're sprinkled in....

There’s lots of drama, there's lots of good energy, there's a lot of stuff to take away to learn. The drama is survival.  Each client presents a new challenge and you take the journey of the emancipation.

 

On fashion in black history month:

For 2012, I made a commitment to support black young designers. LaQuan Smith is someone who I've admired for many years and am so excited to see how he has evolved as a designer and an artist.  He is the future of the fashion industry. I'll continue to support my young black designers, in any way I can.

 

On the one thing she can not leave the house without:
My iPhone! It's all about capturing the moment. It's not very stylish...but what else will I take pictures with?  And my daffodils, I have to have those.

On what inspired her look for the evening (pictured above):

I'm a mom...and I have to rock. It’s fashion week so I'm really just wearing a bunch of stuff that I love...nothing I'm wearing is new. It’s all stuff that comes right from my closet.

On the one designer she would choose to do a collaboration with:
I would do a collection with Tom Ford. I'm obsessed!

 

"Styled By June" premieres March 19th on VH1.

A stylist who can't dress.

A stylist who can't dress. Imagine that?!. If throwing niggas in shiny suits in the late 90s constitutes you being a stylist, then the fashion industry is doomed. Patricia Field is a stylist. Rachel Zoe is a (mediocre) stylist. Rebecca Weinberg is that bitch. I can't name ONE Black "celebrity stylist" who has impeccable personal style and dresses their clients in a manner befitting of them earning the title of stylist. Joe Exclusive is a really nice person, but I'm not even a fan of the folks he dresses, and I love him as a person. Truthfully, he would be much better suited for a show than June. Misa Hilton was dope when she worked for Puff, Missy and the hip hop brood. Chyna Doll Enterprises and Nija Furs (RIP Nija) SLAYED. So many people's signature looks were created by Misa and Chyna Doll. I won't waste my time or my electricity watching June's show.

Wow!!! What kind of racist

Wow!!! What kind of racist comment is that, "Throwing Niggas in Shiny suits. You do know the site is called YOUNG BLACK AND FAB... Someone said she has been a stylist for 20 years, clearly there were other people that could have been hired, you don't work almost 20 years in a sector if your not good at what you do, I'm just saying. The hate is real.

June is almost 20 years in

June is almost 20 years in the game, Styled a ton of music videos,Tours, Photos shoots,Album cover shoots, worked with folks like Missy Elliott,Busta Rhymes,Puffy, Will Smith, R Kelly, Neyo, Mariah, Mary J, Ciara, Alicia Keys, Fantasia, Jazmine Sullivan, Luther Vandross, Will Smith, Chris Rock, Kelly Ripa, Zoe Zaldana, Kim Catrell, Jennifer Lopez, the list goes on and on. Little know fact Oprah had her on the couch for an interview and she been doing tv appearances for more than half her career.Now she has her own show, I'm not mad at her hustle, she has put in nearly two decades of work. This proves hard work and dedication pays off. Love her or hate her, June is doing her thing. I use to work with June for many years and she is a sweet heart, real down to earth..

I don't think she's a very good stylist. As a stylist you're suppose to capture someone's essence, personality have them where it on their body. Some people can dress themselves BUT can't dress other people and she's one of those people. But congratulations to her on her success.

Maybe I'm missing something

Maybe I'm missing something from an "artistic" view - but I just cannot get into her "personal style". She has done a fabulous job dressing others; but she is NEVER put together well. I could care less about what designer clothing she is wearing.........she and Rachel Roy always tend to disappoint me. They are ALWAYS over the top in an attempt to "make a statement"; but I never comprehend the statement. However, I truly admire her fabulosity overall - she is gaining recognition worldwide - probably long overdue.
