BEHIND THE STUDIO 

hi there - nice to meet you. i'm sal.

Sal Yvat (@salsogroovy) is a multi-disciplinary artist creating work in fashion, film, and experimental production. Anchored by a distinct aesthetic and a passion for fostering confidence through style, Sal built Look Authority Studio to alchemize ideas into a vision for brands, collaborators, and people. Since 2020, the Look Authority team has developed and executed wardrobe direction for brands like Conde Nast, Moet & Chandon, Footlocker, and Brach’s Candy.

Her experimental documentary project, entitled “Beyond The Bias,” was a recipient of Open Television’s #OTVLife grant. Grounded in Southern traditionalist and afro-futurist thought, themes of reclamation, identity, and connection encapsulate her projects.

Passionate about enveloping storytelling, history, movement, and sound, Yvat creates intentionally provoking fashion experiences using a variety of mediums. 
Her most recent project, Beyond the Bias II,” was presented to a sold-out crowd at the iconic Salt Shed building in Chicago.

Sal’s vision for Look Authority Studio is to champion and create paid opportunities for future-thinking artists while supporting our collaborators’ goals at any stage of the creative/production process.
