Marissa Sallie, better known as Sal Yvat, was born in Memphis, TN with a love for fashion and self-expression.

With the goal of having a career in the fashion industry, Sal transitioned to Chicago, IL to attend Columbia College. During her time there, she was introduced to the art of fashion styling and knew she’d found her calling.

Since 2016, Sal has had the pleasure of working with a range of notable artists, national brands, and photographers. Her styling eye is vibrant – filled with bold shapes, re-purposed materials, and an air of classic glamour. 

Sal is also the creator of The Look Authority – a multimedia hub at the intersection of fashion, art, beauty, and experimental video.
