I always wanted to be a stylist. Growing up I’ve been exposed in watching Fashion TV at the tender age of 10. I guess not having anyone in the house aside from my Lolo and Lola most of the time is kind of a good thing ( I remember going home in the afternoon and having the privileged of being stuck in front of the TV till my parents and siblings arrived before it gets dark outside. One thing that most kids of my age are dying to have haha!) It also helps that i am into drawing since pre school. I am in love with the idea of drawing woman. My mom had me enrolled in an art class, but I got bored after 3-4 session haha!
Fashion is something that i am very fascinated about. I can be involved in any form of arts like writing and public speaking, but dressing up and dressing someone will always remind me of my first love. I’ve tried experimenting with my own style over the years and as it evolves, My perspective of fashion changes too. From “Being eccentric is being fearless” to “Colors can make fashion dance” hahaha! So i guess you can visualize or at least have a picture of how my style preference would look like over the years.
I am also designing clothes and some of my clothing but i think i’ll have it on a separate post.
This blog entry includes my creative shots with styling people. I am indeed thankful to have these people (mostly my friends and former trainees) to bring all their selected clothing and trust me enough to glam them up. I specifically asked them to bring skirt, dress, shorts, pants and plain and printed top and shirts so we can have 2 to 3 looks.
and YES i am planning on putting these shots in hard copies for my upcoming port folio and hopefully, someday try my luck to make it as a profession.
So here you go…
Let me know what you think??
The next set of photos was taken late last year when I was asked to write for our proposed online article in our company. Obivously I got the fashion -section titled ‘Spotted’ My first write up is to feature an employee (can be from the Operations or Upper Management section) to share their fashion sense.
When I got the part ,the first name comes into my mind and I immediately tell her about the proposed project and ask if she is willing to model and be styled. Of course she said YES and the rest is history as seen in the pictures below.
Styling for both men and women is like a cherry on top of a fantastic cake! Imagine a kid wearing a big smile on her face while checking on the clothes and accessories for every shoot! That’s how I looked like every time I am styling someone Hahah! I was indeed lucky to have very supportive friends and I mean it when I say “VERY SUPPORTIVE FRIENDS” who came along and nailed each of their poses. This would not be possible without them.
Here are the photos when I first try to check my skills in styling for men featuring the ever fabulous Jesther.
“I like the idea of him bringing so many options specially with the clothing.”
I am still on the look out by adding more photos and of course styling more men and women. Aside from trying my luck as a facilitator in a BPO company which turns out to be one of the bravest and smartest idea that I’ve done for myself , I also want to try my chances in showcasing my capability in this line of art.
Feel free to leave your comments and suggestions (if you feel that there is a big need for it) It would be highly appreciated 🙂
Before I wrap up this post , let me leave one of my favorite fashion quotes coming from my all time fashion icon Anna Wintour
– If you can’t be better than your competition , just dress better! – WORD!
Till the next loves!
