Fashion styling is basically about making people  look nice. I work on editorial  photo shoots

, styling models  for fashion spreads in magazines  and newspapers, and also style celebritiesfor big awards

ceremonies. ( 1 . ) -------  There is actually a strong commercial element to styling.

A typical day usuall starts  with me packing up and returning  clothes worn at an awards ceremony the night before,

then heading  out to find new things for my next assingment. Some stylists go through public relations agencies to find clothes.

. ( 2. )-------- As a stylist, yourcontactsare extremely important, so I'm very protective of mine.

If I am finding clothes for someone new, I will call the person first to discuss their likes and dislikes, which helps me to put  together a profile. Then I will spend the day shopping and bring back lots of different outfits for them to choose from.

The best thing about my job is shopping. I hope that doesn't sound too shallow.( 3. )  ---------  I work with a big list of people- models-,make-up artists, You are collaborating together to make something look  nice.

It's easy, however, to get caught up in the glamour of the job. I feel that with any demanding career, it is important to have a balance. ( 4 . )-------------- My husband and I are both stylists and we try to avoid this.We're great football fans.


There are range of skills you need to be a top fashion stylist. It's not enough to have an artistic eye. ( 5. ) --------- For example if you goto gigs, exhibitions and plays, it will inform your work. During a fashion shoot, you have to be hawk-eyed, ready to swoop on any uneven hemlines.

It is important to be really  and careful. So the reality is that it is a lot of hard work. If you want to be a fashion stylist, get a qualification under your belt, not necessarily a degree in fashion, but may be in design. ( 6.) --------- Then do work experience with a stylist in the most environment possible- so you learn to work under pressure to a deadline.


Don't expect to make any moneyfor the first two years. ( 7.) ---------------  .   I am nervous about saying that I earn because I run my own business, but you get  paid per assingnment and it really varies.



(One extra which you don’t need to use.)


A Otherwise, you could get styling take over your life and become a caricature fashion person.

B You should try to find inspiration in unexpected places.

C In fact you will almost certainly supplement your income with other part-time
