Stylist and image consultant | MONCLER Collaboration

Stylist and image consultant | MONCLER Collaboration

As a stylist and image consultant, during my graduation year in Hungary, Budapest in 2012 I collaborated with Moncler to create a collection from their fabrics. I was inspired by the Japanese culture and I love the shape / style of the kimonos so I wanted to produce those looks from Moncler fabrics. I teamed up with a factory in Hungary who showed me how to sew those fabrics and form the designs I had in mind.

For the graduation collection I used very bold colors and interesting patterns, the coats now come in every size, shape, color, and even material. Being a Los Angeles stylist and image consultant I always check what is their newest designs and I love everything what they create at Moncler. Recently seen on runways and beloved by street style stars, there’s an unexpected level of cool associated with such outerwear.

Vivienne Balla, fashion photographer shoot this collection in a Japanese restaurant in the heart of Budapest. She is based in Berlin, but splits her time traveling between London, Paris and Milan. She specialized in editorial and beauty photography. She also shoots for magazines now such as VOGUE, Harper’s Bazaar and Elle.

About Moncler: Founded in 1952 in Monestier-de-Clermont, Grenoble, France, Moncler is now located in Italy. Over the course of the years the brand has merged style with ongoing technological research, which harnesses the knowledge of mountaineering experts. Moncler collections combine extreme needs with day-to-day city life. Beginning in 2003, when Remo Ruffini entered in the Group, a process of repositioning of the brand was initiated through which Moncler products take on an ever more distinctive and exclusive aspect.

Los Angeles celebrity makeup artist | How to become one?

All Los Angeles celebrity makeup artist and hairstylist began careers the same way, but stand out by working with well-known clientele due to the level of work and detail the artist puts forth. Hustle every day.

First of all go to a makeup school and try to learn as much as you can before practicing on others. The principal thing that any celebrity makeup artist needs is the right training and education.

Build your book and assist smaller artists before going on to assist some of the greats in the industry. This experience led to high-profile campaigns, and larger opportunities which would eventually result in a decade-long collaboration. Keeping a portfolio of your successes will allow you to showcase your skills the way you want them showcased – with professional photos that use proper lighting techniques. Also take snapshots of your work so that you have a working diary of your career.

As a Los Angeles celebrity makeup artists and hairstylist, it’s also essential to build great relationships with both clients and brands — you never know where your next campaign could come from or how you’ll connect with your next big client. Great relationships can also lead to your very own collaboration with the brands directly. For example, I often collaborate with Anastasia Beverly Hills because I love their products and they have such a great team behind the brand.

Being a celebrity makeup artist often means being in high demand, so you can expect your schedule to be packed and traveling to become a way of life. Los Angeles celebrity makeup artists work exclusively with movie stars, political figures, artists and others in the public eye.

Los Angeles Kid’s Stylist | Kidsdream US 2019 SS Collection

Los Angeles Kid’s Stylist | Kidsdream US 2019 SS Collection

I collaborated with Kidsdream US for the third time as a Los Angeles kid’s stylist on their 2019 SS Collection photo shoot in a Downtown LA studio. I had 3 little girl to style and do hair and makeup for. Our theme was easter so we had 6 live bunnies on set. The kids absolutely loved the shoot, they were playing with the bunnies during the shoot.

The kid’s styling and hair makeup was matching to the shoot theme, they were wearing bunny ears and the designs of the dresses were very summery and light. I matched their hair and makeup looks according to the style so I curled their hairs and applied light makeup. When I’m styling kids my number 1 rule is they have to feel natural and comfortable in their looks.

We had pastel color backdrops matching to the dresses and the producer Chewy brought a lot of flowers, ballons, stuffed animals and easter baskets to set in order to create the 2019SS easter vibes. As a Los Angeles kid’s stylist I loved working on this set and can’t wait to receive the final images from the brand.

As a Los Angeles kid’s stylist in my opinion from the colors to the styles to even the shoes, their dresses really are perfect for those special occasions. They truly have a wonderful selection of gorgeous dresses that are great for all the little princesses out there. In conclusion I loved working with Kidsdream US and hope we can continue collaborating on upcoming photo shoots in the near future.

As a freelance wardrobe stylist, I collaborated with Tiger House Films, commercial and branded content production company on video campaign for Birdies slippers. THF has the privilege of producing many fashion and luxury brand campaigns in both the video and still photography.

Our branded content production with San Francisco based company Birdies Slippers consisted of four separate videos for social media, hi-lighting different styles from their current diverse and colorful collection.

Birdies, is a footwear company founded by former Facebook and Ross Stores executives, Bianca Gates and Marisa Sharkey. The brand markets their products to busy, on the go women. The brand designs stylish house slippers that combine a seven layer sole for comfort and, a hard sole so that they are wearable outdoors like sneakers, the slippers sell for around $140.

The themes our branded content production company formulated with the Birdies team consisted of videos named the holiday, travel and evergreen spots, each telling a unique story surrounding one model. As a freelance wardrobe stylist, I had to change our model, Olga multiple times throughout the 2 shooting days and match her outfits to the different themes.

The holiday branded content production was appropriately marketed for the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons, consisting of holiday decor, baking, shopping and table setting.

Our other branded content videos had our model making travel plans, going to the bakery, playing with her puppy and other fun activities all while wearing her birdies slippers. I had a great time working with Birdies and THF commercial production company as a freelance wardrobe stylist and hope to create a lasting business relationship with them for the future.

Los Angeles celebrity stylist | How to become a successful stylist?

Los Angeles celebrity stylist | How to become a successful stylist?

As a Los Angeles celebrity stylist, your job can be very exciting and you can jump from one project to the next. In this blog article, I will give a couple of tips on how to become a successful Los Angeles celebrity stylist.

First of all, you will need to build your network and nurture relationships. As you start working, you’ll meet so many people that can help you along the way including brands, individuals, production companies or agencies.

As a Los Angeles celebrity stylist, you need to create your portfolio and figure out your style and what you are good at. For example, I started my career as fashion designer but then quickly realized I’m better at styling so I pursued this career. There are many different categories of fashion styling as well, like celebrity styling, wardrobe styling, editorial styling etc. Find out what kind of work really speaks to you, and pursue that.

Do your research. For every project or event, you will need to spend hours working on your laptop and develop your lookbook which you going to showcase to your clients. Always bring a lot of backup options for dresses, shoes and accessories. On the day of the shoot or event everything can change.

As a Los Angeles celebrity stylist you will need to compete with other stylists for the most wanted dresses. In Hollywood the level for a stylist is very high, all of the celebrities want to be the best dressed for their events so you will need to make sure you are the one who styled them. For red carpet events, like the Oscars you have to be really well-planned and organized.

Wardrobe Stylist in Los Angeles | Gillette Fuse Commercial

Wardrobe Stylist in Los Angeles | Gillette Fuse Commercial

As a wardrobe stylist in Los Angeles, I’ve had the opportunity to work with Gillette. and Justin Bell Productions on their new product launch “Gillette Fuse” commercial.

I had 3 talents/models to style and work on their hair and makeup looks.

The client requested V neck and crew-neck tee options with a not-too-high neckline in solid colors: white, grey and Gillette blues only and for bottoms sweats or non-distracting pajama.

We asked the talents to arrive fresh out of the shower hairstyle and contemporary cut, as the makeup looks go I applied camera-ready makeup. The talents shaved on the camera so they had to have 2-3 days of facial hair.

A professional wardrobe stylist is one of the trending professions within the fashion and commercial world globally. What a wardrobe stylist does is select the clothing and accessories for commercials, editorials, print or TVC advertising campaigns and music videos produced by advertising agencies and production companies. This profession is really essential to these companies because if not for the styling and branding, the message of the commercial will not be communicated across to the audience and customers.

As a TV commercial wardrobe stylist in Los Angeles, I mostly work on TV commercials, branded videos, and campaigns. I really enjoyed collaborating with the production team on this Gillette commercial. I get excited about working with brands and about what I can contribute to their project. Most of all, I love the delight of seeing my work used by clients in some of their major campaigns.

Los Angeles Makeup Artist | Birdies Campaign Video

As a Los Angeles makeup artist, I’ve had the opportunity to work with Tiger House Films commercial production company team on their Birdies campaign video. I was the lead Los Angeles makeup artist, wardrobe stylist and creative coordinator on this project.

To create our model’s makeup look for this campaign I used Anastasia Beverly Hills products. Our clients were going for light smokey eyes, wavy hair and minimalistic styling. The process of creating Olga’s smoky eye was a simple 5 step process:

1) I prepped for the smokey eyes with a long-wear eye base

2) Applied a medium shadow on the lower lid up into the crease, then layer a darker medium shadow on top to build intensity.

3) Used an eye pencil and a gel liner in black color

4) Curled the lashes and added fake eyelashes for the more intensive look

I love my job as a Los Angeles makeup artist and I love working with a wide range of different looks and styles that my clients request. I get excited about working with luxury brands such as Birdies. I am always curious as to what I can contribute to these projects. Most of all, I delight in seeing my work used by clients in their social media posts, advertising campaigns, and websites.

Birdies are the most versatile slippers in the world. Birdies combines elevated style, luxurious comfort, and everyday versatility.

Hollywood Celebrity Wardrobe Stylist | Solstice Magazine Publication

Hollywood Celebrity Wardrobe Stylist | Solstice Magazine Publication

I would like to share an amazing experience I had working as a Hollywood celebrity wardrobe stylist with Tarek Reed fashion photographer. I have already worked with him on a couple of projects,  his works are simply stunning. Tarek Reed is an editorial and commercial photographer, based in Boston, Miami and Los Angeles.

Our model for this editorial photo shoot was Lyssa Roberts, she is a Los Angeles based actress and model. Lyssa was very easy going and professional to work with.

Every story is what makes an outstanding fashion photograph exceptional and every story begins with an idea. Our idea for this shoot was recreating the old Hollywood on a film shoot so we matched Lyssa’s styling and hair makeup according to that style. As a Hollywood celebrity wardrobe stylist, I loved working on this project.

We rented the clothes from a showroom called Le Maison de Fashion on Melrose Avenue, a snug boutique features a range of stylish high-end designer fashions, accessories & shoes for women.

One of the best things about being a Hollywood celebrity wardrobe stylist is the opportunity to travel all over the world, discover new cities, locations and explore the places you love.

Solstice Magazine was created by Sebastian Santa Maria, a London based fashion photographer. The magazine is a high-quality publication with a view to giving fashion and photographically orientated creatives another platform for expressing themselves through the visual and written mediums.
