Fashion Show Coordinator | Stella Lam Runway Show

Fashion Show Coordinator | Stella Lam Runway Show

Stella Lam haute couture collection launch is one of my projects I really enjoyed as a fashion show coordinator. It was a great project as I had to work with twelve models of which falls into three different categories of the collection launch. These fashion models were divided into three major themes which include luxury, creative and elegant. As well, I coordinated matching hair and makeup looks to the stunning dresses.

With the increasing social recognition to ‘women’s independence’, ‘dress’ in Stella Lam’s interpretation is more like a fashion icon symbolizing the social civilization. Stella Lam firmly believes that a woman’s charm comes from the different sides of temperament from the inside out, while a well-dressed woman embodies a sense of confidence and the pursuit of quality of life. Therefore, Stella Lam is the embodiment of the art of living.

Derived from care and focus on women’s life, ‘magnificence out of luxury, conciseness out of simple, personality without losing the taste’ features the value of Stella Lam.

Stella Lam is mainly in the service of urban women of all social occasions and moments, paying attention to women’s needs of various body sizes in all ages with various social appearance, providing you a great variety of ready-to-wear and make-to -order dress of all product lines.

I was privileged to display my fashion show coordinator skills to Chinese clients. Artists were the introductory act of the occasion which was educative and entertaining. Distinguished celebrities and influencers were present at the event.

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.

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.

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.

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.

TV Advertising Wardrobe Stylist | Kevin De Leon Campaign

TV Advertising Wardrobe Stylist | Kevin De Leon Campaign

I collaborated with WIN ad agency as a TV advertising wardrobe stylist on their Kevin De Leon Campaign. WIN is a media agency that creates strategic campaigns for engaging audiences, driving action and creating change.

I had two actors to style on this TV advertising project. I would like to explain my process as part of making this campaign:

I got call from WIN’s ad agency producer who had my contact through a recommendation. He was asking my availability as a TV advertising wardrobe stylist and makeup artist for this project, which was a political campaign spot for Kevin De Leon. After that he sent me a short brief by email and explained the plan for the shoot. Luckily, I was free on those days and had time to start immediately.

I began working on the pre-production by communicating the specific style the director was going for, which included showcasing a lower-middle class family. I received talent measurements prior to starting the production wardrobe shopping and began my rounds to find just the right color scheme and overall fit for the talent. We didn’t have time for a fitting because our schedule was very tight but I was bringing wardrobe options so we could confirm talent outfits with the director on the day of the shoot.

After the shoot with WIN as a TV advertising wardrobe stylist, I had to do returns and wrap out the project. I had to take care of the accounting as well and report how much I spent from the wardrobe budget in total, to the production team.

You can find the final video and the article on Adweek : https://www.adweek.com/creativity/poignant-campaign-ad-tells-the-story-of-a-candidate-whose-family-could-have-been-separated-by-ice/

In conclusion I loved working with WIN advertising agency and hope we can continue collaborating on upcoming campaigns in the near future.
