On the fourth day of April, Talalima was introduced to the world in Oakland, California as Giorgio Talalima Sizemore. Since birth, individual-style has been her main mission – simply because it’s very tough sharing the spotlight with her older twin brother, Kenese aka dj Fresh(Ness). When her Mother remarried she was given the opportunity to choose and changed her legal given names to Talalima Giorgio and adopted her Fathers surname, Mobley.
Writing journal entries was an expressive outlet gifted to Talalima by her Mother for her baptism into the Mormon Church at the age of 8. According to a 4th grade entry, her biggest concerns were finding creative ways to make money. For example, selling her Tommy Hilfiger gear was a playground highlight, along with selling boondoggle-keychains and origami’s that she and her friends [slash business partners] made together. Creative problem solving and her innate abilities combined with entrepreneurial motives have fueled Talalima’s successes.
In 2005, she coined the texting shorthand phrase ‘WYD’ – which means “what’re you doing” – that has now become commonly used in tweets, memes and even verbal communication around the globe. Carbon copy tweets were another online trend she started. In a sense, Talalima has already influenced the world in communication by how we interact with each other online.
After completing both high school and a 2-year humanitarian service project in Guatemala, Talalima attended her first fashion show in September 2012, with an informal invite from Marlon Gobel – who encouraged Talalima via Twitter to sneak into his presentation. In 2013, she attended 22 fashion shows – and formed StyleHeirs.com to host her written online reviews. New York Fashion Week gave Talalima a thirst for more and she has now attended Fashion Weeks in not only New York City, but also Miami, Zürich, Seoul, Honolulu, Tokyo, London, Milan, and even Cuba for the CHANEL x Karl Lagerfeld exhibit. In music she's been granted press access to One Direction, The Weeknd, OneRepublic and many more. Her most memorable concert was meeting with Rihanna in New Zealand for her Diamond World Tour.
Fashion documentaries have been an obsession for Talalima since the release of Loïc Prigent’s documentary Marc Jacob & Louis Vuitton. Much to her surprise, Talalima was briefly highlighted in the recent new documentary titled Fresh Dressed by Sacha Jenkins. Another historic moment for Talalima was interviewing film director Jennie Livingston at The Sundance Film Festival in 2015 before she reintroduced her award-winning documentary Paris Is Burning.
A newly discovered knack for Talalima has been managing projects from inception with ideating creative elements for fashion production to wrapping up deliverables for various campaign editorials. The most memorable casting gig Talalima contributed towards was the launch of Pat McGrath's 36-shade foundation line. As an indispensibale member for the motion team, Talalima has supported Kim Kardashian onset for Stewart Weitzman; Kate Moss and her daughter Lila, Lady Bunny onset for Tommy Hilfiger; Louis Vuitton onset for The MET Gala; Beverly Johnson backstage for Sergio Hudson fashion show and many more impressive credits to come.
There have been countless brands that have benefitted from Talalima’s work, such as Fiji Water – when they invited her to experience Fiji – Michael Kors, Tiffany & Co., Scooter Braun Projects, CFDA [Council of Fashion Designers of America] and even Universal Music to name a few.
Currently, Talalima spends most of her time in New York City and Hawai'i.
