Celebrity looks that just knock the charts off, prominent personalities and their stunning wardrobes, models looking like a million bucks in those advertisements! All this is made possible by an extremely talented stylist. Fashion Styling or Fashion Consulting is one of the many career paths you can choose in the glamour industry.
- Trends are your best friends
Attend as many fashion shows, brand showcases, showrooms and catalog launches that you can! Always stay updated on the latest trends, this will help you style your clients better and keep their fashion game strong!
- Personalise, never impose.
Trends are temporary, but personality is permanent. While an outfit or an accessory might be very “in” at the moment, there are major chances that it will totally kill your clients personality. So style to personalise, keep in mind functionality and the kind of vibe your client wants to exude.
- Be a social butterfly
Ain’t nobody that made it big without being a sweetheart first! Maintain a good image and personal and professional relationships with everyone in and around the industry, this will help you gain trust and credibility and also grow your clientele.
