We had the good fortune of connecting with Kelsey Norris and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kelsey, how do you think about risk?
Risk is the chance of anything happening! Greater opportunities come when you lead with purpose and have the confidence to persist in making your vision come to life. I am excited and open to what happens next.
Whenever I am seeking inspiration, I trust my instincts and take a risk.
What should our readers know about your business?
The Albright Fashion Library is the premiere destination for international editors, costume and fashion designers, stylists, celebrities and private clients in search of the most sought after fashion.
Albright works dually as a luxury rental showroom and an archive space being seen on countless covers, film & tv, music videos, and red carpets.
There are other places that offer similar types of service, but what I like about Albright is that we provide one-on-one attention along with a broader selection of rare offerings.
At their heart of it all, libraries are repositories of information.
Our library contains decades of style, trends, history and glamour.
As a director of the Fashion Library, my job is to connect my clients to the looks they are seeking, in whatever context that may be.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would give them a tour of my office in Trousdale Estates, so we can play dress up and enjoy the expansive view overlooking the city. My favorite places for a cool, beautiful vibe are Soho Malibu, Sunset Tower, Nice Guy, and Olivetta. When my closest friends are in town, we do yoga and meditation on my rooftop followed by ordering in Cafe Gratitude or going for martinis at the Bel Air Hotel.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I want to dedicate this Shoutout to my Dad and my life coach – who also happens to be my Mom. They provide me with unconditional love, support, mentorship, and encouragement every single day. Thanks Mom and Dad.
I also want to express my gratitude to my friends and colleagues in the fashion industry.
Thank you to the founder of Albright Fashion Library – Irene Albright, stylist and consultant – Jack Eustace, and the team in NYC – Patricia, Lindsay, Rachel and Danielle for always being so supportive.
To the founders of worn. in London, Bella Buchanan and Lily Fortescue, who have inspired and educated me on the circular economy. Can’t wait to see you soon.
