Ummm…I’m pretty awesome.My wonderful parents saw fit to name me Christopher E. McMullen. You can call me Seth Brundle. There’s nothing in life that I enjoy more than what I do. I’m an artist who paints people with apparel. I’m a professional wardrobe stylist, personal shopper, fashion writer, moonlighting designer and aspiring superhero.
I was born and raised in Carson, CA. After high school, I attended Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA where I graduated Cum Laude and received my bachelors degree in Marketing with a minor in Public Relations and Communications. I moved back to Los Angeles and initially began my “professional career” in consumer public relations. After a few years of soul crushing work, I could no longer ignore the truth. I was a child perpetrating as an adult. I’ve had a long standing love affair with fashion since I picked up my first issue of Vogue. I couldn’t ignore my lover any longer. Nor could I continue pretending that I didn’t want to play, “paint” and create. I sat at my computer one night, drafted my resignation letter to my boss and fearlessly walked away from my budding career as a PR executive.
I got my start assisting stylist Monique Scott with her client R&B legend Faith Evans and on the set of Milk + Honey (series). What I learned from her was invaluable. What started as a working relationship evolved into a lifelong friendship. It is my belief that you can’t teach creativity. It is something that is innate. She recognized my sense and taught me how to utilize it to its fullest potential. For those tools she equipped me with, I’m eternally grateful.
I’ve been on my own for quite some time now and since then I’ve had the opportunity to work with some phenomenal entertainers including Glee’s Amber Riley, Kevin McCall and Teyana Taylor; dynamic photographers like Derek Blanks, Kawai Matthews and Ed Canas; and a host of other incredibly talented industry professionals.
People call me the “King of Thrifting.” I’ve become infamous on the blogosphere for my style philosophy and take on successful thrift shopping. I’m in production with Neighborly/Grey Area Productions on my web series The Seth Brundle Experience, where I show people the place where caviar tastes meet bologna bugdets (high style and low funds). Check it out in the “SBTV” section of the site.
Now, I’m back to being a kid again. Exhibiting the truest form of hedonism, doing ONLY what makes me happy — styling the world one person at a time! In addition to being a full-time, freelance stylist, I currently serve as Fashion Director for Yoo-N-LA Magazine and Lead Wardrobe Stylist for Edge Magazine, LLC. I’m ALWAYS up for a new challenge and available for hire.
Stay tuned for more things to come!
