Fashion Stylist Biba Esaad is currently based between Montreal, QC and Toronto, ON. Following Biba’s time at Queen’s University – where she specialized in a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honors) focused on Oil Painting and Printmaking, alongside a medial in Art and Fashion History – she spent some time working under the National Gallery of Canada, assisting and supporting the activities for the preparation and realization of the 16th International Venice Architecture Biennale (2018).
More recently, she was awarded The Power Plant Contemporary Emerging Artist Award (2021) with notable distinction following the Toronto Outdoor Art Fair. Her background in Fine Arts contributes heavily to her unique and detail-oriented approach to working, always looking back to the notion of sculpting the body, of nudging the figure into space.
Her portfolio consists of a large and diverse range of work – from editorial to commercial, celebrity to ecommerce.
Currently, alongside her career in Fashion Styling, the UK native is the acting creative director and style editor of Lotion Magazine as well as a fashion model signed to Chantale Nadeau, Faces MGMT and Niwa Models.
Her notable projects include work with Champion, Salomon, The Hudson’s Bay, S/Magazine, Rogers, Sporting Life as well as talent such as Annie Murphy, Rupi Kaur, Mina Gregers, Bria, and Talvi Faustmann. Biba’s roster of regular clients includes SSENSE, Bully Boy Lingerie, Inkbox and more.
