What are your tips for dressing for your body type? – laineee
I always say that, above all, if you feel confident in what you are wearing then wear it! I’m a little curvier on the bottom, so I always wear something a little tighter on top to accentuate my waist. But sometimes I love to wear baggy clothes! It really depends on the day!
Do you have a fashion icon? Someone you are inspired by? – jjessica
Hmm, that’s a good question. I think people who inspire me a lot in terms of style are M.I.A. and JLO from the 2000s. M.I.A. is so colourful and vibrant! And JLO wore a lot of sporty but sexy looks.
What is your recommendation for shorter girls? – Gottago
For shorter girls, I always recommend a retro-rise denim that sits above the belly button. They make the legs look longer! 🙂
What is your favourite current clothing trend? – KylieGarage
Right now, I’m loving the TRACK trend! It’s sporty, casual, cool, and so comfy.
Are there any requirements/prerequisites for becoming a fashion stylist (e.g., medical school to become a doctor)? – katiel22
Most places require experience and a background in fashion design. I have a degree in marketing and did not go to fashion school! I say that if you are passionate and LOVE what you do, then you will succeed at anything!
What does a regular day at work look like for you? What do you love the most about your job? – kat !!
A regular day at work usually consists of doing tons and tons of research. I look for inspiration in magazines, runway shows, trend websites, etc. If I’m not doing research, I’m usually on e-commerce shoots or lookbook shoots . What I love most about my job is collaborating and travelling, and being surrounded by inspiring people every day.
With regard to the photo shoots, do you choose just the clothes or do you also have a say in the backgrounds, angles, models, posing, etc.? – zena.k
My main focus on set is to put great outfits together, but I collaborate with photographers and art directors as well. It’s a great way to build magic on set! I like to work closely with them because I know how the clothing should fall on a model, so together we make sure that we get the perfect angles to make the clothing look best!
Do you usually imagine different outfits before putting them together or do you like to go on a whim and try out different pieces until you’ve found the outfit that you like? – QueenSalad
I always love to try things on and change them up just to see how things fall and fit on the body. Sometimes it’s in my head and other times I really have to think it through and lay out all of the clothing before trying stuff on!
What gives you inspiration? – Kimberlyy and QueenSalad
Inspiration comes from everywhere: shopping trips, runway shows, Instagram, Tumblr, music festivals, people-watching, etc. I also love to get inspired by music videos from the ‘80s to the 2000s! Music plays a key role in giving me inspiration.
Is being a stylist something you love doing? Would you change your career path if you could go back in time? – zena.k
I LOVE being a stylist! It’s really great because I get to collaborate with people every day and make them feel good. I wouldn’t change it for the world! My main goal in life is to leave a positive impact on everyone I work with! 🙂
Would you wear any of the outfits you put together? If so, which one is your absolute favourite one to wear? – falloutjadyn and yicycles
I love Garage and totally wear some of the outfits I put together! My favourite item in-store right now is our mom jean! They have a retro rise, so they can be worn with so many awesome things! I love wearing a classic crew neck tee tucked into them. It’s an effortlessly cool and casual look.
