Born and raised a Sydney-sider, Juan-Carlos Aquino stayed in his native Australia until 2010. Now based in the metropolis that is Hong Kong, he continues to pursue his fashion styling career.
Creativity developed early in his youth and was expressed through street art, later on it lead to a degree in graphic design. Juan-Carlos had a predominately fashion focused eye throughout life and a suggestion from several close friends in the fashion industry that he would be a natural stylist was what began it all.
He would start out by assisting former editor of Oyster magazine, Paul Bui, who was a consistent contributor to the publication, then move on to style look books for Australian based labels such as Gala Curios, Circle Park and The Twelfth Letter. His collaborative design efforts with Circle Park are also a nod to his undeniable creative ability and are being sold in stores around the globe. Juan-Carlos' fashion shoots have been published in print and online displaying his intuitive skills to audiences in Hong Kong, New York, London, Japan and Australia.
Aquino currently resides in Hong Kong where he works as the Style Curator and Buyer for a boutique in Sheung Wan, Hong Kong – Konzepp – in addition to his styling.
