Personal Styling & Wardrobe Planning
I began my fashion career in India freelancing as a wardrobe stylist for major magazines and advertising campaigns. As a wardrobe stylist (also known as a fashion stylist) my main responsibility is to select the appropriate clothing and accessories to be worn by models at a photoshoot for an editorial or ad campaign. My most favorite part of being a wardrobe stylist, hands down, is being on the set. It’s where the fantasy comes alive and creative energy flows. On set, I meticulously dress the models in handpicked pieces while making sure everything fits well, looks spotless, and creates the desired image consistent with the photographer’s, hairstylist’s, makeup artist’s, and sometimes the creative director’s vision.
Although my eyes light up when ever I talk about styling on set, there is nothing more rewarding than helping someone feel like a million bucks. This is when my personal styling comes into play. A personal stylist’smain priority is to dress and style individuals. Personal stylists address a person’s image through clothing and accessories, and suggestions for hair, makeup, etc. Clients seek my expertise for different reasons: special events, weddings, social events, building self-confidence, improving their look for dating, climbing the corporate ladder, or just to look amazing for their significant other. Personal stylist services include closet audits (editing the client’s wardrobe), shop for clothing and accessories, style a client in new pieces or the latest trends, and putting together outfits. It’s very gratifying to see the improvements in my clients’ perception in themselves after they step into their new outfits.
