Jeremiah Brent – Styling Assistant Rachel Zoe Inc.


We all met Jeremiah Brent on the first episode of the new season of The Rachel Zoe Project.

Jeremiah has a background in interior design. He taught himself both how to design and how to build furniture. He already has his own furniture design firm and has designed everything from small houses to big nightclubs.

Jeremiah is originally from Modesto, CA and moved to Los Angeles at 19 years old.

Casasugar.com did an interesting interview with him. You can read the whole interview here.

The most interesting parts of the interview:

CS: How did you meet Rachel Zoe and get involved with the show?

JB: I have always had deep admiration for Rachel Zoe. Aside from her unwavering work ethic, she has always maintained such class and dignity with the development of her brand and the life that’s accompanied by it. When I heard through a mutual friend that she was looking to hire someone new in her company, I jumped at the opportunity. I had reached a point in my design career where I couldn’t find the passion that once fueled me, and I had always been fascinated and curious about fashion. It was all a very natural progression.


CS: What’s one project you’ve created for Rachel that you love?

JB: I have been given the opportunity (however terrifying) of creating some very special spaces for Rachel, both professionally and personally. Rachel is not someone who easily relinquishes control, if ever, but she always has for me. She has consistently trusted both my capability and eye for design. Getting the chance to do some of these amazing spaces (which you will see this season) has meant a lot to me. This year has been a very important one for Rachel and Rodger, and I feel so fortunate to have been a part of those experiences.


CS: What are your passions outside of the interior design world?

JB: Design is my passion every day! It’s everywhere! Like I said before, I’m really fueled by creativity. Aside from that, I love being outside, surfing, being active, taking unplanned day trips to new places. My passion is life! Oh and laughing. Laughing is key!
