Los Angeles Production Designer | Awana TV commercial

Los Angeles Production Designer | Awana TV commercial

A few months ago, I had the pleasure of working as a Los Angeles production designer and wardrobe stylist with OX Creates and Justin Bell Productions on a commercial shoot for our client, Awana, an international Christian nonprofit organization that focuses on educating children of all ages in biblical studies, and gives them the opportunity to know, love and serve Jesus, regardless of their background. Their mission is to help “reach kids, equip leaders, and change the world for God”.

The commercial depicts the stories of three characters, Chloe, Jay, and Brent. Each of them have their own backstory and from different parts of the world. Throughout the course of the commercial, we see each of them go through their own set of trials and tribulations and how they’re able to find God in the process.

For this shoot, alongside my duties as a Los Angeles production designer, I was also in charge of the fashion/wardrobe styling and design of the costumes, as well as the set direction. Since each of the characters 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. My experience in each of these departments, along with my ability to effectively multi-task, served as a key component to communicating with the clients and producers in the best way possible. For example, we transformed an empty office space into a child’s bedroom. This was no easy task, but we managed to pull it off in a short amount of time.

Despite the hefty load of responsibilities, I thoroughly enjoyed working with Ox Creates and Justin Bell Productions. They gave me the opportunity to channel my skills, ideas, and creativity in order to help bring Awana’s vision to life. OX Creative is a visual content and brand strategy firm that uses their platform to connect up-and-coming talent to global brands that focus on making the world a better place.

Since moving out to Los Angeles in 2017, I have continued displaying my work in commercials and advertisements. I’ve worked alongside many different brands, companies, and organizations such as The Scotch porter, Mattel, Mtailor, North Face, among many others. Now, I can happily add Ox Creates and Justin Bell Productions to the list. I’m very proud of the hard work and dedication that was put into this shoot. If you’re interested, I highly recommend you check out the commercial, which was recently uploaded on YouTube. Go check it out: https://lucabuzas.com/portfolio/awana/

Being able to come up with a variety of ideas that attract viewers is also very important.

Runway Fashion Stylist | Montblanc Boheme Collection Fashion Show

Runway Fashion Stylist | Montblanc Boheme Collection Fashion Show

Montblanc Boheme collection launch is one of my projects I really enjoyed as a runway fashion stylist. It was a great project as I had to work with nine models of which falls into three different categories of the collection launch. These models were divided into three major themes which include business, creative and elegant.

I really enjoy working on fashion shows due to the fact that I cherish the speed of the show and I will be exposed to the latest designs. In addition to the direct contact and exposure to the latest designs, another personal benefit I enjoy as a runway fashion stylist in events like the Montblanc Boheme Collection Fashion Show is the access to top brands in such events.

At this event, we showcased the Montblanc Boheme watch collection in Shanghai. This was achieved through the big event which was organized by Activation group. Activation group has been a superior companion agency for luxury and top brands like Louis Vuitton, Dior and many more. The group gave a great opportunity for me to display my runway fashion stylist skills and they also provided a platform for Montblanc to showcase its great collection in Shanghai.

A celebrity contingent gathered in Shanghai to celebrate the worldwide launch of the women’s Montblanc Boheme collection in Shangai was supported by a notable group of celebrities from different industries present in the show to celebrate the achievement of Montblanc. During the show, different collections of jewel-encrusted watches and writing tools were displayed including the artists that designed the collections.

Celebrity Wardrobe Stylist In Los Angeles California I ANTA

Celebrity Wardrobe Stylist In Los Angeles California I ANTA

One of the most exciting projects I was apart of was working as a celebrity wardrobe stylist in Los Angeles, which is where I am based. But I have also worked on projects in places such as Shanghai, China, for a shoot with Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo for ANTA shoes. It was exciting because not only did I get to travel, but I also had the opportunity to style celebrities.

Currently, ANTA is one of the leading brands of shoes. Their models include a team of world-famous athletes who have excelled in their respective sports. They are a fantastic brand to work with, and I hope to work with them on future campaigns.

What is great about being a celebrity wardrobe stylist in Los Angeles for a sports brand is that I work with a specific set of products, and having my wardrobe choices narrowed down definitely makes styling easier. I love working with sports brands because I also get to experience their new products before they are out on the market.

I was able to work on the project because of RedPlus, which is one of the first agencies to work on fashion films in Shanghai. They provide production services from creative development, casting, location scouting, set design and post-production, with a team comprised of international photographers, stylists, creative directors, hair and makeup artists and illustrators.

Since I was able to work on so many great projects, I feel like I want to share some of the tips and tricks of the trade for those interested in entering the industry. I am a self-made wardrobe stylist and I continue to make efforts to build up my portfolio in order to show clients the years of experience I have attained, as well as skills that would be beneficial to their projects. I think the greatest advise I could give is to work on your portfolio and maintain good relationships with your clients.

I had an excellent time working with ANTA and RedPlus, and I hope to create a long lasting business relationship with them for the future. Take a look at the final print campaign here: https://lucabuzas.com/portfolio/anta-sport/

Professional Wardrobe Stylist In California | Green Tea TV Commercial

Professional Wardrobe Stylist In California | Green Tea TV Commercial

As a professional wardrobe stylist in California, I had the luck of flying to the Philippines to style a TV commercial with the Shooting Gallery Asia production company team. It was a very exciting trip. We were shooting their Green tea TV commercial for three days around Manila. We worked with an advertising agency called GREY China.

As a professional wardrobe stylist, I love planning ahead. As soon as I get a brief about a project, I immediately have a vision of what the brand can use for the shoot. It helps make the actual shoot run smoothly. I prepared most of the wardrobe styling in Shanghai, China throughout my pre-production days. In Manila, I only had to source a couple of additional wardrobe choices to complete the looks. Another tip, for aspiring wardrobe stylists out there, is to always have a backup plan. Bring as many styles there as are available and is possible to use on location, especially when working in a place you are not familiar with.

Our commercial was for a green tea brand so the looks had to match with the brand’s previous advertising campaigns. Our main color was green. I loved playing around with the tones for this shoot. The art direction for this project created a really friendly, lifestyle and happy atmosphere for the camera. I love how we were able to harmonize each of the aspects of the production to create a fun commercial to watch. I personally like it when all these visions come together into one work of art.

A professional wardrobe stylist is one of the foremost 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.

I also had an excellent time working with Indie Go Media and Shooting Gallery Asia production companies in the Philippines, I hope to create more projects with them in the future. Shooting Gallery Asia is a TVC and Film production company that has a wide range of clients. They are a trusted name in production with projects spanning from Singapore, China, Indonesia, Vietnam, Philippines, Malaysia, France, New Zealand, The Maldives, and Japan. They also do 3D CGI/Capture and Print, Digital Imaging and Original Content Creation.

Getting to travel across the world, is just one of the many perks of being a professional wardrobe stylist. But most of all, I get to do what I love and enjoy working with creative people!

Celebrity Wardrobe Stylist Los Angeles | Downtown LA Photoshoot

Celebrity Wardrobe Stylist Los Angeles | Downtown LA Photoshoot

I would like to share a fun experience I recently had working as a celebrity wardrobe stylist Los Angeles. L.A. has a great community of creatives working with each other. Tarek Reed is the fashion photographer I worked with on this campaign. I have already worked with him on a couple of projects,  his works are simply stunning.

Celebrities and influences are some of my favorite people to work with because they have a certain energy that is contagious. These celebrities and influencers have a certain personal brand that they have achieved which makes each one unique to style. This group of talent also gives me a lot of options to create the looks that they can easily pull off. Working with them is always an adventure and experimental at times.

Tarek Reed is one of my favorite fashion photographers. It was a pleasure to work with him, especially because there are a lot of people he can pick for a celebrity wardrobe stylist in Los Angeles. We did photo shoots for a few projects for clients including fashion stores, showrooms and model agencies. We got a behind the scenes videographer to shoot a video of this particular collaboration. Working with a professional like Tarek Reed is a great opportunity to cultivate my work. We are currently in the process of submitting the final images for publication. It is exciting to see  the final products when you have helped produce beautiful photos. It is even more exciting to see them in publications.

During the shoot with Tarek Reed, I did my job as a celebrity wardrobe stylist. Downtown Los Angeles was our location. Many people ask what a celebrity wardrobe stylist does, so I’ll make a short list of the things I actually do during a project:

  • I select items including fashion items and props that a model can use for a shoot whether it is for magazine, billboards or other media.
  • Sometimes I also advise the photographer on what would look good in photos and items that are then chosen for us to promote.
  • I Communicate with celebrities/models, retailers, designers, brands, hairdressers, photographers, etc.
  • I also do makeup and hair styling for celebrities during a photoshoot.
  • Generally, I advise clients about what fashion direction they should take.

A celebrity wardrobe stylist may do the things listed above, and more, but the main goal is to make the model or the celebrity look good for a shoot whether on video or in photographs. It does sound fun, right? Working with different kinds of creatives and putting together something beautiful for others to look at.

So what does it take to be a celebrity wardrobe stylist? I found out after years of working in this job, that passion for fashion and unique trends is the first and foremost thing that a wardrobe stylist must have. Next to that, is a keen eye for beauty. What colors match the model’s tone? What items must be selected for the celebrity to wear to make the photographs stand out? These are all the things that I think about every day on the job.

Personal Stylist and Makeup Artist in LA | Salvation Mountain Photoshoot

As a personal stylist and makeup artist in LA I was working with wedding, lifestyle and portrait photographer Radostina Boseva ( Joy ). Joy’s client, Viki  asked her to arrange a shoot for her 18th birthday. Viki then contacted me to take care of her personal wardrobe styling and hair-makeup during our one day photoshoot.

We were shooting on both film and digital, Joy stated: I love to shoot with both film (yeah, the old school film rolls) and digital. The images that you will see here are primarily shoot on film, because I love the colors and the dreamy look.

As a personal stylist and makeup artist in LA, I love to travel for work to beautiful places. For this photo shoot, our location was Salvation Mountain, Salvation Mountain is a hillside visionary environment created by local resident Leonard Knight in the California Desert area of Imperial County, north of Calipatria, northeast of Niland near Slab City, and several miles from the Salton Sea.

From Radostina Boseva about our shoot: One of the most interesting, challenging and fun photoshoots that I did last year, actually happened at the very end on December 30. I flew down to Los Angeles from San Francisco and together with the fantastic fashion stylist and makeup artist Luca Buzas we drove down all the way to Salvation Mountain for this colorful and fun birthday photoshoot. The entire session was photographed on film and I think only film could preserve all those beautiful colors in the California desert.

Los Angeles Television Wardrobe Stylist | Sugar Lady TV Commercial

Los Angeles Television Wardrobe Stylist | Sugar Lady TV Commercial

As a Los Angeles television wardrobe stylist, I principally work on TV commercials. while I lived in Shanghai, China I was hired by Fred and Farid, an international independent advertising agency to work on a project with one of their clients, Sugar Lady, on their next commercial. Moreover, the production company asked me to bring on board, a hair and makeup team for this commercial.

On this commercial, I took care of the direction we were going regarding the appearance for wardrobe and hair-makeup. The style was very elegant and minimal, I used only monochrome colours for accessories and I selected very large brim hats to keep our model mysterious. In fashion terms, hats are a very noticeable accessory because the onlooker’s attention is first drawn to the face. For this reason, I made sure the costumers first attention would be drawn to Sugar Lady’s newest collection.

For styling, the key things you need are creativity, communication skills, and good teamwork. With luxury brands, these things are very important as a result of the clients have really refined taste. There are some inherent and learned qualities that build a successful fashion stylist.

As a wardrobe stylist agency in Los Angeles, you need to have several wardrobe and fashion stylists in your roster to recommend for specific projects. You can represent stylists in each category, for example luxury, sport, beauty, and fashion.

Sugar Lady has been a ladies fashion brand for over 30 years. Sugar Lady is a luxury brand or prestige brand for which a majority of its products are luxury fashion clothes and accessories.

Kid’s Wardrobe Stylist | KinderJoy China TV Commercial

I collaborated with  ZORBA-Group ad agency as a kid’s wardrobe stylist on their KinderJoy China TV Commercial. ZORBA is a large agency with offices in Paris, Shanghai, and Singapore. The commercial was produced by Studio Supreme.

For this TV commercial I had 2 Chinese families to style including 6 kids. The color palette the client and agency choose was pastel. Pastels are one of the major trends this season and my favorite combinations for advertising shoots. As a kid’s wardrobe stylist, some of the brands I love to work with are ZARA, Uniqlo, Gap and H&M. These fashion brands always carry different styles and fabric options in their latest collections so I can mix and match their wardrobe. Working with kids is always exciting, they bring high energy to the set.

ZORBA-Group mix the world of artists, scientists and technologies to create the crème de la crème of storytelling and brand contents for all medias and audience. ZORBA-Group is a ad agency, a collective, a brand content company or a production company.

The story of the KINDER™ brand begins in 1968 at the heart of a small Italian town named Alba. Michele Ferrero developed KINDER CHOCOLATE and added what would become a famous brand for the Ferrero company, which remains family owned today. Ferrero couldn’t be more proud of its history and is delighted to take the strong foundation of the past and continue to bring KINDER™ into the future.

In conclusion I loved working with KINDER™ and hope we can continue collaborating on upcoming TV commercials in the near future.
