Goerges Buffon said it best, “The style is the man himself.” That’s the truth when speaking of Marv Neal, 31 year-old Detroit native. Defining style and individuality for men & women of the local masses for years. More recently, he’s been focusing his effort toward a power move to let the world acknowledge his prowess as a fashion stylist. Landing an affiliate position within the E.Rollins Group, we should expect nothing less than greatness while he chases his HAPPINESS. Beautifully Misunderstood stopped him for the “Happiness Quest” inquiry.
Who inspired/encouraged your movements/change? I get inspiration from everywhere music, magazines the people and things of the world that are positive. The women in my life are strong so that’s a big inspiration, trailblazers (and) people on the move.
What risk (if any) did you take to follow your happiness? Just going for my dream of being a stylist. I don’t know if I really took a risk yet but it’s risky business daily. (Because) In this business you have to prove that your (fashion) opinion matters.
How long did it take you to embrace the move toward happiness? I think I was fighting my talent and so busy with life that I didn’t go for it but after my ankle break and being laid (up) in the house for months after. When you have nothing but you, God and time you come out changed after that it was no stopping after that.
Where would you be had you NOT followed your happiness? Still talking about getting to my happiness and trying to find my way to it.
Sum up your journey in one sentence…. My journey has just begun stay tuned.
Beautifully Misunderstood shined the spotlight on Marv for his bold decision-making and movements toward the LIFE he desires. Detroit’s new creative vibe is gaining momentum and with innovative minds such as Marv’s, the future of the city is that much brighter. Let me confess, when I become exhausted with the mall in my search for different items for a certain look, I shoot him a quick message to cheat. On more than one ocassion, he’s helped me out. 😉 I’ve learned from him that even when your dreams seem so far away, if you keep believing in and working for them. They tend to find a way to you, becoming your reality. As Marv instructed “stay tuned” to his journey to becoming an international stylist via his blog, jeanous.blogspot.com .
