Paul Merritt is a British editorial and celebrity stylist who works with Jennifer Lawrence and other A-listers. Splitting his time between London and New York, he now takes clients once a week at ARROJO NYC. To announce himself to New York’s creative community, he created a new editorial, Black Light.
