MEET AVON

From Supermodels to Super Bowl champions, Olympic Gold Medalists to Oscar winners… Avon Dorsey has worked with them all. He is an industry insider with a keen sense of style and a bevy of fashion experience.

Recognized by VOGUE for having a “lively and informative” approach to fashion, Avon has freelanced for Glamour, InStyle and Marie Claire magazines and has produced runway shows for The Smithsonian Museum, The African-American Heritage Festival and Baltimore’s ARTSCAPE (America's largest free arts festival). He has appeared as a style expert on national television for MTV, NBC and ABC news network affiliates, and has been covered in the ‘Style Section’ of The Washington Post.

Currently a Contributing Fashion Editor for ESSENCE Magazine, Avon has styled celebrity covers and orchestrated how-to fashion segments for its ESSENCE Live and ESSENCE Now television programs, cast models for the ESSENCE Festival ‘Street Style’ fashion shows, frequently dresses the talent featured in the hair/ beauty sections of the publication, and creates content for its ESSENCE.com digital platform channels.

Having international experience, Avon has mastered bi-coastal assignments and has researched and sourced trends in-and-around London, Paris, Berlin, New York and Los Angeles. He is a graduate of Morgan State University’s Fashion Merchandising program and has also studied accredited coursework on the campuses of AIU (American Intercontinental University), and F.I.T (the Fashion Institute of Technology).
