We had the good fortune of connecting with London Wilmot and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi London, we’d love for you to start things off by telling us something about your industry that we and others not in the industry might be unaware of?
Everyone thinks styling is easy, a fun job, it definitely takes hard work, dedication and resilience.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Ricco Noir involves two parts, image consulting as well as it being a lifestyle brand. Running both isn’t easy but I love the challenge. Image consulting/styling has been a passion of mine forever, understanding how to make it a business was important. Everyone has to find a way to live, so I had to find a way for it to become something I could do everyday. I would say challenges would be finding the right client that understands your importance and your craft. I’ve been blessed to be connected with some of the best people in this industry. My story toke a lot of hard work, resilience and determination. Work comes first! I’m still going with my story and hope to accomplish more.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I honestly love the Miracle Mile/ Fairfax area. I love the museums so we would make a trip there. Slide by Jon&Vinny’s one of my favorites or Terroni. Grab some amazing pasta. End the night at Delilah for some smooth jazz and drinks.

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’d dedicate my shout out to my mother, from a young age she involved me in her shopping process. I learned so much from just shadowing her.
