Film Production Coordinator | PIAGET Commercial with celebrity Hu Ge

As a film production coordinator, I got hired by Fulldawa Films. Fulldawa commercial production company was approached by PIAGET to create a series of brand commercial productions for their new line of luxury watch products. We produced this commercial spot in Shanghai, China. Our celebrity actor for this spot was Hu Ge, one of China’s most popular actors.

Hu Ge, also known as Hugh Hu, is a Chinese actor and singer. While studying at the Shanghai Theater Academy, he was invited to play the leading role Li Xiaoyao in the 2005 television series Chinese Paladin, and immediately skyrocketed his career.

About Fulldawa: Established in Paris, Fulldawa Films is a feature and commercial production company. Fulldawa is an independent award-winning production company which has been ‘crashing the party’ ever since its inception in 2004.

About Piaget: Mechanical masterpieces defined by pure lines and timeless elegance, Piaget luxury watches figure among the most prestigious ambassadors of the watchmaking world. Since 1957, the Manufacture has made a name for itself as the master of ultra-thin Swiss watches after having created one of the thinnest movements ever made. An expertise that allows the Maison to work diamonds, as well as hard and precious stones, ad infinitum on cases, dials and bracelets, without ever weighing down the delicacy of its luxury watches. Immediately noticed on the wrists of the world’s elite, the Piaget style brought originality to the world of men’s watches and women’s watches.

Freelance Fashion Stylist | Dear Velvet Editorial Shoot

Freelance Fashion Stylist | Dear Velvet Editorial Shoot

As a freelance fashion stylist, I love to travel for work. I had the luck of flying to the Philippines to style an editorial for Dear Velvet blog. My concept was to use only scarves as outfits. As DV said “One scarf really can do it all. Every travel article I’ve ever read advises taking a scarf to wear as a bandana, blanket, hankie and so on: it’s a camping staple. Packing just one thing seems like a revolutionary idea. Truly, just one scarf can double for almost every item in your wardrobe.”

A classic silk scarf is an investment piece in your wardrobe, that never goes out of style. Wearing a silk scarf with your outfit is a genius way to add instant, effortless chic to any look. But as with many accessories, it’s all in the styling.

Think saris and sarongs, bandanas and bralettes; experiment with twisting and make yourself a halter. Sleeveless or side layered, this is an easy way to dip into the bare shoulder trend. Headscarves, skirts and even bikinis are all there for a little artful tucking and tying. With Summer imminent and the endless hunt for holiday clothes occupying too much of our leisure browsing.

I had a great time working with Dear Velvet team as a freelance fashion stylist and hope to collaborate with him in the future. Here you can take a look on the editoral: https://dearvelvet.com/category/style/page/3/

You evaluate, enhance and upgrade your client’s look, behavior and communication skills to ensure that their image is consistent with their personal or professional goals.

Kilim rugs, medal embellishments, fringes and woven accents have become the distinctive elements for both day-wear and evening-wear pieces.

Classic shapes, geometric details and intense colors are mixed with arabesque motifs and animal-prints, to create a glamorous and contemporary look. The Just Cavalli Women’s pre-collection presents a feminine soul, but with a rock’n’roll and androgynous edge thanks to a series of iconic items such as the classic biker leather jacket, the Montgomery coat and the striped tops infused with Oriental-inspired elements.

Los Angeles Personal Stylist | Menswear Business Casual Look

Los Angeles Personal Stylist | Menswear Business Casual Look

As a Los Angeles personal stylist, I love to work with individuals who has the eye for luxury and trendy clothes. I styled Ashok, a Shanghai based fashion model during our collaboration. His style is sophisticated and modern, I just had to coordinate his wardrobe looks during our photo shoot.

By definition, menswear business casual look is a style that’s not quite as formal as traditional office wear, but nevertheless still created to render a professional or business-like impression. Naturally, that leaves plenty of room for interpretation. Not helping is the inclusion of the word “casual”, which historically imparts visions of men in Hawaiian t-shirts, shorts and sandals. To that we would say: just go ahead and try wearing truly casual wardrobe to the office on a regular workday and see how far it gets you. In other words, business casual is still far more “business” than it is “casual”, and that’s absolutely a good thing.

As a Los Angeles personal stylist I styled Ashok in 3 different looks. The first one was a formal modern man’s suit , the second was a street style and the third look a full on jeans outfit. Personal stylists help clients achieve their desired looks by aiding them in the selection of personal style items, such as clothes, shoes and accessories. Sometimes these services extend even further than clothing selection; personal stylists can also work with home decoration or advising hair and makeup looks.

I had a great time working with Ashok as a Los Angeles personal stylist and hope to collaborate with him in the future.

TV Commercial wardrobe stylist | Global Leadership Network Brand Anthem Video

As a TV Commercial wardrobe stylist I often travel for work. During this project, I collaborated with Global Leadership Network, OX Creates and Justin Bell Productions. This spot for the Global Leadership Network, was shot over 1 day in Santa Clarita, California with a stellar Justin Bell Productions commercial production team.

For this shoot, alongside my duties as a TV Commercial wardrobe stylist, I was also in charge of the production design, as well as the set design. Since each of the characters in this brand video are from different parts of the world, I needed to ensure the set and costume designs for each character were appropriately placed in order to represent their stories in the best way possible.

Global Leadership Network is a community who is committed to learning from each other and using our influence to accomplish God’s purposes on earth. Since GLN founding in 1992, they’ve held a deep-seated belief that the Church is God’s plan to redeem and restore our world.

Today, GLN exist not just to serve church leaders, but Christians in all sectors of society to impact the world.
