Freelance Wardrobe Stylist in Los Angeles | OPPO Print Campaign

Freelance Wardrobe Stylist in Los Angeles | OPPO Print Campaign

As a freelance wardrobe stylist,  I was hired onto this commercial production as the key wardrobe stylist. Amanacliq production company in Shanghai, China found me to style a shoot for OPPO smartphones.

We had 2 freelance models who flew to Shanghai from Guangzhou, China for this campaign shoot. We had different themes, one business casual, one lifestyle and sporty. Our location was StudioArk, Amanacliq‘s official studio space. I was working closely with the Amanacliq production team to get the final looks approved. As a freelance wardrobe stylist in Los Angeles I love to collaborate with new clients, agencies, brands and commercial production companies and travel for work.

This print campaign’s main theme for wardrobe was business casual. Business casual is very versatile. Wardrobe can be paired with more dressed up pieces to look more “put together” and mature, or they can be worn with much more casual pieces for a more laid-back vibe. Some examples of these items can be black blazers, button down shirts, nice flats, cool blouses and cute, easy dresses.

About OPPO, the selfie expert and leader, OPPO is ranked as the number 4 smartphone brand globally since 2016* and is
providing excellent selfie experiences to more and more young people around the world. For the last 10 years, OPPO has been focusing on selfie technology breakthroughs. OPPO innovated selfie beautification and drove the selfie trend in the smartphone industry.

I had a great time working with the Amancliq production company and OPPO, I hope to create a lasting business relationship with them for the future.

Children’s Wardrobe Stylist | Barbie TV Commercial

Children’s Wardrobe Stylist | Barbie “You can be anything” TV Commercial

Recently I collaborated with Barbie on their “You can be anything” campaign as a children’s wardrobe stylist. With my children’s wardrobe stylist team we had to style 16 children for this TV commercial. Our day started at Mattel studios in Los Angeles, CA where you can find an entire Barbie wardrobe closet full of clothing and fashion accessories. This commercial was produced by STORIES International and directed by Barry Norwood.

For this branded commercial we had to choose very bright and colorful wardrobe options because the concept was based on girls that can become anything they dream to be. It was a very inspirational video where our kids could achieve and empower themselves through their role models. Imagine the possibilities, see what happens when girls are free to imagine, they can be anything. Leading by example for 56 years, Barbie inspires girls to be anything. As a children’s wardrobe stylist in California I love to work with child actors, they are very self driven and talented.

“My whole philosophy with Barbie was that, through the doll, the girl can be anything she wants to be. Barbie has always represented the fact that a woman has choices. “- RUTH HANDLER, BARBIE CREATOR

Adweek wrote an article about our campaign for International Women’s Day, and brands are committing like never before to honoring women everywhere. The Mattel brand unveiled dolls based on women heroes like Amelia Earhart, Frida Kahlo, Katherine Johnson and Chloe Kim. “Barbie is committed to shining a light on empoweringrole models past and present in an effort to inspire more girls,” the brand says.

Professional Wardrobe Stylist in Los Angeles | BRAND’S TV Commercial

Recently 3388 Films found me to style a BRAND’S TV commercial shoot. As a professional wardrobe stylist in Los Angeles,  I was hired onto this commercial production as the key wardrobe stylist.

We had multiple outfits for the talent to match each of the brand’s products and looks. This TV commercial took place on location in Los Angeles in a modern house in West Hollywood. This commercial / branded shoot took 2 days to capture on camera. This particular brand already has a very established style so my job was to match this commercial styling to heir previous campaigns.

As a wardrobe stylist I had been working in Shanghai, China for 5 years where I had the luck to collaborate many times with Asian clients. Through my previous experience, it was easy to understand the type of aesthetic this client was looking for. In terms of color aesthetic, their products are packaged in red a green boxes so I used pastel colors and reds to highlight and complement their branding. We had multiple wardrobe options by the time of the fitting. Everything fit perfectly on the models so during the set, all I had to adjust were the clothes to look perfect the camera. I’m very happy  about how this branded commercial turned out and it truly highlights my job as a professional wardrobe stylist.

I had a great time working with Brand’s Worldwide and hope to create a lasting business relationship with them for the future.

As a commercial wardrobe stylist for photo/video shoots, I constantly need to dress models or actors for certain themes or products. This can involve planning the wardrobe, purchasing the clothing and accessories, fitting the models or actors, and staying on set to make sure the talent looks production ready. After the production days are wrapped I return the clothing and accessories.

In this corporate commercial video the production was going for a modern, business casual look. Our main talent had a very corporate dress code, his outfit had to look professional. The other cast included TSA agents, stewardesses and passenger extras for wardrobe styling. The shoot took place at an airport nearby Los Angeles. We were filming for 1 day. For this particular TV commercial we had to follow a strict dress code policy and make the wardrobe look like real TSA agent uniforms and stewardess dresses.
