Cypriot-born stylist and fashion editor Panos Yiapanis is renowned for his fashion forward editorials and signature youth-culture-imbued aesthetic. Boasting longstanding creative relationships with Rick Owens and Ricardo Tisci, the stylist has collaborated on several beauty and fashion campaigns for Owens and Givenchy, as well as styling the labels seasonal catwalk shows. Regularly working alongside prominent fashion photographers Steven Meisel, Nick Knight and Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot, Yiapanis has contributed to magazines such as Vogue Italia, Harpers Bazaar, AnOther and W and in April 2013 the stylist was appointed fashion director-at-large at Love magazine.
Crediting the launch of his career on a close friendship with iconic British photographer Corinne Day, Panos first began styling on mock shoots around London whilst studying sculpture at Chelsea School of Art. After leaving to pursue a career in fashion, Yiapanis worked closely alongside Day on editorials for i-D and Dutch, slowly raising his profile within the community. Meetings with American photographer Steven Klein and prolific Dutch photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin led to increased attention and Yiapanis soon began working on editorials for The Face and Arena Homme Plus.
Panos has worked on campaigns for Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana and Stella McCartney, and has also styled fashion films for Barneys New York and Calvin Klein.
