Los Angeles Costume Designer | Drink UbU Commercial Shoot

Los Angeles Costume Designer | Drink UbU Commercial Shoot

Lemonlight, a production company / advertising agency hired me as a Los Angeles costume designer for their UbU commercial spot a couple of months ago. I love to work with brands who have great taste in their marketing and advertising materials. We shot this commercial spot for 2 days around Venice and Santa Monica beach in Los Angeles, CA.

I styled 5 talents through multiple wardrobe changes during this commercial production. The wardrobe direction given from the director was casual and lifestyle so I brought many options from ZARA and H&M stores.

About UbU: A healthy lifestyle and daily mindful choices are the first steps to a balanced mind and body. If you need vitality and focus with UbU Organic Natural Energy, or the benefits of full spectrum hemp with UbU Organic Hemp Tonic, each bottle provides an immune system boost, supports digestive health, and promotes hydration. UbU naturally empowers you to be your best, balanced self, so you can face almost anything life throws your way.

Lemonlight believes in teamwork to create and fulfill every client’s vision. They house some of the most talented crew members in the country in order to offer each client a unique production that promises success. Lemonlight instills core values and ethical standards that create professionalism and creativity within their company and for their clients. They focus on narrative storytelling to produce cinematic images that inspire an emotional response from your audience.

I had a great time working with Lemonlight and UBU as a Los Angeles costume designer and hope to create a lasting business relationship with them for the future.

Los Angeles Creative Coordinator | Birdies Bridal Campaign

Los Angeles Creative Coordinator | Birdies Bridal Campaign

As a Los Angeles creative coordinator, I handled the wardrobe, hair and makeup as well as part of the production design in the campaign. I got hired by Tiger House Films commercial production company.

For wardrobe styling I used Rent The Runway services, RTR is a subscription fashion service that powers women to rent unlimited designer styles for everyday and occasion. Rent the Runway was founded in 2009 by Jenn Hyman and Jenny Fleiss.

Tiger House Films boutique commercial production company has partnered with New York agency Quickframe to create projects for San Francisco based Birdies Slippers consisting of a photo and video campaign for their new Birdies Bridal Collection in SS19.

Directed and shot by Tiger House Films founder Jason Carpenter, the team for this fashion commercial production was lean and talented. Our THF commercial crew consisted of 12 people total.

From the beginning Birdies team was seeking a boutique production company in Los Angeles for their production. Tiger House Films flexibility and creative input was the perfect match for their needs. As a Los Angeles creative coordinator I had a great time working with this team and hope to collaborate again soon.

This fashion commercial campaign was shot in a four bedroom suite at the historic Hotel Casa Del Mar in Santa Monica.  Inspired by the grand villas on the Mediterranean in Italy, Casa Del Mar was the perfect back drop to our high end commercial campaign with Birdies Slippers.

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.

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.
