Born in Long Island, New York, Christopher Smith was raised by street culture and the fashion that pervades it. While attending the Fashion Institute of Technology, where he studied advertising and marketing communications, Smith established himself in the fashion industry as a model represented by Wilhelmina New York. As he did this, he began to use his experiences of New York culture by styling the very clothes that decorated his upbringing.
Whether he is styling or casting, Smith's dedication to authenticity is the reason brands trust him with creative control. With a keen eye for detail, Smith's work focuses on conveying meaningful imagery that pays homage to the street style that raised him.
Selected clients include Converse, Adidas, Nike, Saturday’s NYC, Hypebeast Magazine, and Highsnobiety Magazine
