THE STYLIST'S CHRONICLES;- IMPERFECTION

I can’t stress how hard fashion styling is. I don’t know what vibe most celebrity stylists must have given, but it isn’t all glitz and glamour.
Like I said in my fashion stylist assistant 101 post, sometimes it isn’t about looking good, but getting the job done.
I noticed that the recent stylist chronicles I post, I am always looking good at the shoots, but sometimes that isn’t the truth. I am all about getting the job done and can’t be bothered about fixing my hair, wearing the perfect combination of clothing etc
I don’t work with an assistant, partly because the last one I had practically thought Looking good/pretty automatically makes one a fashion stylist. Imagine the pressure of setting out the clothes, dressing up the models, picking out the location, dictating the poses etc all on my head.

This was shot at the Y! magazine’s Editorial shoot. It was my first magazine shoot and I was really determined to give it my all as usual.
Really glad the pictures came out Fabulous, even though I looked a hot mess behind the camera.
LMFAO! J



SILK SHIRT; - Momma’s own
ANKARA SHORTS; - Random

BROOCH;- D.I.Y.

I WHIP MY HAIR BACK. . .

Toodles,
Fashion Phoenix

The whipped hair shots were nice, I was distracted by the scenery in the others.

You can do better than dress like this, try living up to your expectations as a fashion stylist, so you can increase your clients.

@Fashionpolicenaija LMFAO! You make me laugh. You probably didnt read my post before commenting. Fashion is not all glitz and glamour. My clients also know my worth and the services i render, so looking pretty and not delivering anything is also zero.
This post is to show that i am not always immaculately dressed at fashion shoots.
