April Hughes is a sought after New York stylist & co-owner of one of the best stores in the City, Beautiful Dreamers in Williamsburg. April’s days are spent working as a stylist in editorial and advertising. Having got her start at Elle Magazine and Nylon, she’s worked as a freelance stylist for the last 10 years.
Beautiful Dreamers was started as a creative outlet to have something more permanent. April told us, “As a stylist I move from project to project, people to people on a weekly basis. I wanted something that could linger a little longer. A place to curate all of the talented designers I love, showcase talent from all mediums – art, books, homeware and textiles”. The store is one of those magical retail destinations you find yourself always wanting to linger in whenever you stop by. April lives in Williamsburg with her husband and two daughters, Tallulah, aged 7 and Mathilda who is 2. Below April shares her weekend plans for our Summer Friday’s feature.
