Carlos Nazario Named Harper’s Bazaar Style Director at Large
In stepping into the newly-created role of style director at large at Harper’s Bazaar, Carlos Nazario will be responsible for styling the magazine’s covers and leading a team of creative collaborators, according to an announcement from the magazine’s editor-in-chief Samira Nasr.
Nazario also serves as i-D magazine’s global fashion director, a position he has held since 2019. He will continue in that role while fulfilling his duties at Harper’s Bazaar.
Nazario has been a champion for models and designers of colour, having styled the likes of Naomi Campbell, Rihanna and US Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Nazario was the first Black designer to style an American Vogue cover in 2021 and is recognised by the CFDA as a key shaper of the fashion industry.
”I’ve long admired Carlos’ work,” Nasr said in a statement. “He speaks to now in his approach to creating fashion imagery and the community he has built perfectly aligns with the modern and distinct vision we have for this iconic brand.”
The February edition of Harper’s Bazaar will feature Nazario’s first cover for the Hearst-owned publication.
