GQ’s Style Guy, Mark Anthony Green, is making his way to Savannah for this year’s WordCast Conference. The conference is an event where acclaimed industry professionals give hands-on seminars for students interested in journalism, social media, filmmaking and more.
Green has worked his way to becoming a leading figure in fashion, and always had his sights on a career in the world of fashion. An article from The Kansas City Star states that for a “What do you want to be when you grow up?” assignment in kindergarten, 6-year-old Green responded with “Editor and chief of GQ.”
Of course, he learned later on down the road it’s actually editor-in-chief— but who are we to correct a kindergarten student with such a dream.
A graduate student from Atlanta’s prestigious Morehouse College, Green quickly rose up the ranks at GQ to become one of our generation’s tastemakers on style as GQ Style Guy.
With such a moniker, you’d expect Green to have all the answers. And he does.
From Andy Cohen questioning when to cuff pants, to regular dudes wanting advice on what to wear to their wedding, Green doesn’t hold back when it comes to top-notch style advice.
This fall, Green will host two seminars: ‘How to land your dream job’ and ‘Branding yourself for fashion journalism.’
WordCast 2017 will take place on September 29 and 30 at the SCAD Museum of Art, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
