Miami Wardrobe Stylist | Lotus Cars Photo + Video Shoot

Miami Wardrobe Stylist | Lotus Cars Photo + Video Shoot

As a Miami wardrobe stylist, I got hired by VistaAerials to work on a Lotus Cars photo + video shoot. VistaAerials was contacted by Lotus Cars to hire as a commercial production company in Miami to produce their commercial in Miami, Florida.

Miami is one of the fashion hubs of the USA, I styled 2 models from Next Management. I wanted to “make a statement” with style and at the same time matching the models look to the cars. How you dress, talk is “who you are” to most people, truly your own brand. Few people will ever come to know the “real you”, so your personal style, your car choice is an effective way to quickly show the world your polish, determination, goals, and ambition. This is the reason why it was really important for me to find the right pieces of wardrobe to match this sports car commercial shoot. Usually, I shop 3-4 times more wardrobe then we actually need because I want to present a ton of options to the client.

About Lotus Cars: Lotus Cars Limited is a British automotive company that manufactures sports cars and racing cars with headquarters in Hethel, England. Lotus cars include the Esprit, Elan, Europa, Elise, Exige, Evora, and Evija sports cars and it had motor racing success with Team Lotus in Formula One.

It was such a pleasure to work with Lotus Cars and Vista Aerials on this project and I wish to work with them again on another car commercial production as a Miami wardrobe stylist.

Commercial advertising stylist | VoyageLA Interview

Commercial advertising stylist | VoyageLA Interview

As a commercial advertising stylist I got a chance a couple of weeks ago to give an interview to an online magazine called VoyageLA. The interview can be found as part of the Inspiring Stories series here:

http://voyagela.com/interview/meet-luca-buzas-lucabuzas-hollywood/?fbclid=IwAR0MIU9_keVXLCmTJwqo8j-LvPie0Ujxxcl7C-0tTwScBQ-JKBEbD_XSsdQ

Let me tell you a little bit about the interview. VoyageLA asked me a couple of questions via email such as how I started my career, what kind of issues I was facing along the way and about my current/future projects. They gave me about 2 weeks to get back to them which was plenty of time to put together my answers. At the end of my interview they asked me to recommend 5 people who also work in the film / advertising industry because they would like to expend their community to their readers.

I love collaborating with magazines that create interesting stories and connect people together. VoyageLA introduces creatives in different areas of LA, for example they have people in Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica etc. so you can search and read about industry professionals in your area.

About VoyageLA: The Voyage Group of Magazines started in Los Angeles with their flagship publication VoyageLA.  After generating their first million page views in LA they knew their content was resonating with the community. They’ve since grown to a handful of other amazing cities with the help of an incredible network of friends, associates, local insiders and influencers, PR firms, local bloggers, artists, creatives, entrepreneurs and other professionals.

It was a pleasure collaborating with VoyageLA on this interview as a commercial advertising stylist and hope to create a lasting relationship with them for the future.

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.

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/

Image Consultant In Los Angeles | Just Cavalli Private Event

Image Consultant In Los Angeles | Just Cavalli Private Event

Working as an image consultant in Los Angeles is a very exciting job. As an image consultant, you are a specialist who improves the personal or professional image of a client. 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. When I lived in China I collaborated with Just Cavalli‘s PR team and they flew me to Chengdu to host a private event to their clients.

Image Consultant Responsibilities:

  • Schedule comprehensive initial meetings with clients to ascertain their personal and professional goals.
  • Assess, improve and transform the client’s image, behavior and communication skills that will distinguish them from the crowd.
  • Engage with corporate clients through professional brand coaching and projects.
  • Counsel and coach clients with purposeful advice that contributes to a positive transformation of their personal or professional image.
  • Methodically transfer image information through an environment that facilitates the most efficient and effective learning.
  • Aspire to create images that are authentic, suitable, appealing and sustainable.

The event’s theme: For the Just Cavalli Autumn/Winter 2014-15 pre-collection, Roberto Cavalli was inspired by a fascinating journey to the East, from the mysterious Persian lands to the incredible Turkish landscapes. 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 an 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 have an 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 photoshoot.

By definition, a 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 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.
