In 1991, Jimi Urquiaga was born as a first generation Cuban-American in Las 
Vegas to a hardworking immigrant family. Growing up, Jimi saw the struggles 
and sacrifices his family made for him. This instilled in him a “Never take no 
for an answer” mindset which set him apart from the rest at a young age.

He fell in love with fashion at a young age and dabbled in design during his 
teen years. At the age of 21 he decided to take a turn in a new direction and 
pursue a career in Fashion Styling. He moved to Los Angeles, CA where he 
stood out for his creative eye and unwillingness to conform to the commercial 
market. After three years of working in the Los Angeles and experiencing 
much success, Jimi set his eyes on the Big Apple.

Today he is currently living in New York City and working as a freelance 
Fashion Stylist and Creative Director – alongside some of fashion’s most 
influential photographers and directors.
