Law Roach says that he’s certain about retiring from celebrity styling and that he hasn’t been happy “in a really long time.” The iconic fashion stylist explained his reasoning during an interview with The Cut. Over the years, Roach has worked with many celebrities on looks including Zendaya, Celine Dion, Tom Holland, and Ariana Grande.
“I am definitely, 100,000 percent retiring,” he told the outlet. “Nobody can say what’s forever and what will happen, but at this moment, and in my mind, I’m definitely retiring from celebrity styling. I’m not retiring from fashion, because I love it so much. But styling, in the way that I’ve been of service to other people, I’m retiring from that.”

As for why he’s stepping away, he continued: “I think the real reason is that it’s been building for a while because, you know, I looked up one day and honestly realized that I’m not happy. I haven’t been happy, honestly, in a really long time. And the culmination of everything that’s been happening in my career these last few days kind of just pushed me over the edge. And it’s just like, You know what? I’ve done everything. I’m very grateful that I’ve been able to move and climb in this industry the way I have.”
While he says he’s grateful for the success he’s achieved, Roach admits it’s come at the cost of great personal sacrifices. He continued: “But I can’t say that I didn’t do that without suffering. And I think as Black people in this country, it’s embedded in us to suffer, right? We feel like to be successful, we have to suffer. You suffer through things to get to the other side, you know? You suffer through Earth to get to heaven, you know what I mean?”
“I made that post because I felt like I couldn’t breathe and me releasing that and letting the world know that I’m done with this was the first time that whole week that I really felt like I took a breath, a deep breath,” he added. “I don’t wanna suffer no more, I don’t wanna be unhappy, I don’t wanna be at the beck and call of people and their teams.” He further said: “I wanna take some time and figure out, you know, how to live.”
