Lawrence Zarian is the Host of TV Guide Network’s original series THE FASHION TEAM along with Host Daphne Brogdon. The one-hour weekly series gives viewers an inside look at the world of fashion and what the stars are wearing – from Red Carpet couture to on-set styles seen in Hollywood. THE FASHION TEAM offers a review of fashion “hits and misses” from the Red Carpet, and offers advice for viewers on how to dress just like the stars they love for less.
Whether touring the country to unveil the latest trends, or interviewing the top names in Hollywood, Lawrence Zarian is always in the mix and on the cutting edge. Zarian has exploded onto the scene and is taking the fashion, television, and celebrity world by storm. His energy, quick wit, and sharp insight on "what's hot" have made him one of the most sought after on-camera personalities in the fashion industry today.
“As a kid growing up in Southern California, with a Mayor for a father, a star athlete older brother, and an identical twin, it was clear I had to do something drastic in order to make a name for myself. My twin started modeling in High School, and then took off to New York and Milan. In my head, I thought that if he could do it, so could I, or so I thought.”
While modeling in New York for the collections during one of the shows, Zarian did the unspeakable: he spoke to the audience from the runway. What should have been a fashion disaster turned out to be a blessing. A photographer from the press area was trying to snap his photo, when his camera jammed. Trying to be a good guy, he waited, and waited, unaware of the fact that the other models were lining up behind him. After what seemed like an eternity, the show coordinator said over the sound system, “Thank you, Lawrence!” Looking behind him, he realized what he had caused, and quickly responded with, “I’m not finished yet!” Oh yes he was.
The good news is that the photographer got his photo and the bad news is that Lawrence was finished working for that designer. But in the audience that day was a representative from a major department store. Impressed and inspired with what she had just witnessed, she went backstage and handed Lawrence her card, saying, “If you can speak like that in front of the world’s most established editors in the fashion business, then we’d be honored to have you speak on behalf of our company.”
And thus, The Fashion Guy was born.
"The Fashion Guy" can be seen everywhere these days. On local and national TV, at in-store appearances and in seminars across the country. Lawrence shows his fans the hottest and coolest styles, how to wear them, and most of all, where to find them. From ABC’s Live at The Academy Awards, Extreme Makeover, Live with Regis and Kelly, Dr. Phil, TYRA, and EXTRA, Lawrence has found his niche making-over the USA.
With comfort and ease he can slip into any role -- rubbing elbows with the Hollywood elite or rolling up his sleeves and accessorizing the woman at home. Always informed and always prepared, Lawrence delivers what the audience needs in a style that's fresh, fun and guaranteed to leave them wanting more. www.thefashionguy.comLawrence Zarian Fast Facts:
