I have been off the grid. If you tried to get a hold of me in the last week or so, you probably haven’t been able to as I have been immersed in a job that I have never done before – styling a fashion show.
The show was last night and it was Kate Sylvester‘s ‘Sylvester’ collection for next season – Winter 2016. I was pretty stoked to be even considered for the job given that I have little experience with the behind the scenes of a show, so I am extremely grateful to Kate for giving me the opportunity. I know that sounds like something you have to say but I really do mean it, it was such a cool experience and I learnt a lot. I almost feel like I should’ve been paying them to do the job. Jokes. Kind of. Anyway, the process was really interesting and creative and fun and there’s so many factors to consider and work through in addition to the actual putting together of outfits – casting, choosing which outfits are best on which girls, hair and makeup, running order, undergarments, figuring out how to get a girl to change complete outfit in the space of approximately 70 seconds, the actual logistics (how to get a particular shoe on an outfit when you’ve only got 1 size 38 and three girls that need to wear that shoe, for example).
The collection is called ‘Forever’ and it’s inspired by 90s Winona Ryder, aka very effortless and cute – see below:
