Born in West Virginia, Ben Sturgill has been working in New York as a stylist for over two decades. During that time, his work has appeared in a wide range of respected magazine titles as well as visual campaigns for fashion companies, including Billy Reid.
Last month, we were honored to have Ben work on our FW14 image campaign. While chatting on set, we learned that he was much more than just a talented stylist: Ben is the founding editor of Everything, a thick, photo-heavy magazine that clocks in at almost 300 pages.
As New York was ramping up for Fashion Week last week, Ben was gracious enough to carve some time out of his schedule to answer a few questions we had about his first publishing venture and to welcome frequent Journal collaborator Chad Davis into his beautifully appointed apartment in Brooklyn’s Greenpoint neighborhood to snap some pictures.
