I am a Brand Marketer photographer image consultant and wardrobe stylist. I have designed both menswear and womens wear collections. My wardrobe styling work includes celebrity, rock band styling for photos and stage clothing, high fashion editorial, fashion catalogues, film and music videos. I also work with private clients on wardrobe styling/image consulting. Looking to meet and collaborate with other creatives.
I'm young, intelligent, focused and positive minded individual, who's major goal is to succeed in all that I do. I love smiling, and acting a fool, coz I like to keep everyone happy. Very caring, understanding.... Three things are most important to me: GOD, Family & friends, everything else is truly irrelevant. I'm a learner; I try to grab life by its horns and lastly, I believe LOVE is the answer to ALL problems. For me success isn't determined by what type of status one actually has, but the kind of journey he or she undertakes in life. However, one thing I hold near my heart is unrelenting hard work, so whether or not I fail, the thought that I gave all I had in the attempt to make my dreams come true is definitely enough.I'm more concerned with my character than with my reputation. My character is what i really am while my reputation is merely what others think i am.
Everyone wants to be unique
. Fashion is not exclusive to models, celebrities and those who can afford the latest designer clothes. Creating a personal style is one way to develop an image that you want to exude to the people around you. How you carry yourself â i. e. the clothes you wear â says a lot about your personality. Someone who lives in jeans, shirts and sneakers can easily be taken as someone who wants a laid-back lifestyle
While it's perfectly fine to keep yourself updated with the latest fashion trends, you need to keep yourself from being a victim of trends. Fashion is created to help you establish your own image, not so that it can create a different you.
People have trademark styles. Kate Moss is popular for her laid-back style. Nicole Richie almost always has bug-eyed shades and a big bag. Jackie O. was known for her classic suits that made her a timeless fashion icon. You too can create your own style. While it's still a long way towards being a trendsetter, the experience can help you discover your style personality and help you choose clothing and accessories later on
Do your homework
Get pictures of celebrities, models and anyone who appeals to your fashion taste or who are made-up in a way that appeals to you. Stick your photos into a notebook or an album. Research about fashion icons and style trends and take notes on which ones you feel greatly reflect the image you want to create. Remember that there are no right and wrong answers here. You shouldn't feel the pressure of making your style choices fit into what others think is attractive
Don't buy anything unless you're entirely sure that they would suit you. If possible, try borrowing choice accessories from your friends so you can experiment on pieces that you feel will look good on you
Just make sure that you give them back if you want to keep them as friends
Whenever someone compliments you for your outfit for the day, make sure to take a photo of how you looked so you'll have an idea about what others think about your style. Conversely, if you just came out barely alive from a fashion faux pas, you will want to take note of that outfit. Stick all your photos in the same notebook and make comments on what worked and what didn't. Having an actual image of what you look like in different outfits will help you decide on a signature style that you want to work with When it's time to shop for clothes and accessories, it's important to consider your lifestyle.
Creating a personal fashion style means prioritizing comfort.
Clothes that are appropriate for the types of activities that you have will give you a good head start in deciding on the type of style that you want for the future
Finally, creating a personal style is a work in progress. It doesn't come automatically. It's a process of experimenting on various genres. Even fashion icons may have had to go through a lot of criticisms before they discovered what looked best on them. The most important thing is that you have fun dressing yourself up according to your style personality
