Wardrobe Supervisor in Los Angeles | Fashion shoot with Victoria’s Secret Angel

Wardrobe Supervisor in Los Angeles | Fashion shoot with Victoria’s Secret Angel

As a wardrobe supervisor in Los Angeles, I had the luck working with Victoria’s Secret Angel, Barbara Fialho, who is a Brazilian model and singer.

Being a wardrobe supervisor I supervise all dressers and costumers working on a production. In consultation with the client, director, photographer, and the production manager, I help to coordinate and assign dressers to specific models and locations. In prior to our shoot with Victoria’s Secret supermodel Barbara Fialho I was present at production meetings and location scouting, my primary responsibilities were to prepare everything and to decide with our team in each location which dresses are getting shot.
Barbara is stunningly beautiful and gave the camera incredible charisma. Her ability to be aware of her body and how to move for the camera allowed the creative team to work seamlessly with her. The lead designer behind the new Ikaria ready to wear collection, Leah Hulon created beautiful designs for the brand that fit the location and mood perfectly. As a creative wardrobe supervisor, I loved working in conjunction with the photo and video team.

I had a great time working with Tiger House Films and Ikaria Resort Wear as a wardrobe supervisor in Los Angeles and hope to create a lasting business relationship with them for the future.

Wardrobe Stylist in Miami | Studio Fashion Photography

Wardrobe Stylist in Miami | Studio Fashion Photography

As a wardrobe stylist in Miami, I collaborated with Matt Pluz, a Miami based fashion photographer to work on a fashion shoot with him and model, Taylor Piper. We shot these images for 1 day at Matt’s Miami studio.

Fashion photography is one of those niches that escapes strict definition and for the most part, it is free from creative restriction. You can shoot whatever you want, in a studio or outside, however you want, as long as you are telling a story. It’s true that clothes, accessories, and makeup form a huge part of the story, but at the end of the day you’re providing a glimpse into an imagined world through your unique perspective.

As a wardrobe stylist in Miami, I conceptualize outfits for the shoot from brands who fit the brief, and I go out and borrow, buy these items for the shoot, dress the models in an organized and creative fashion, and ensure that all items are accounted for at the end of the day and returned. As a stylist, I collaborate with the fashion photographer and help advise on everything from how the story is shot to how the story can be presented once it’s finished.

I was the key HMUA as well on this shoot, hair and makeup make all the difference when it comes to bringing your fashion story to life, as they can place the fashion model into the world you’ve envisaged with much more realism and relative ease than post-production can ever achieve.

It was such a pleasure to work with Matt Pluz and Taylor Piper on this project and I wish to work with them again on another production as a wardrobe stylist in Miami.

San Diego Wardrobe Stylist | San Diego Zoo Spring Break Shoot

Being a San Diego wardrobe stylist I had the luck of working with San Diego Zoo on their Spring Break shoot at the Dream Factory Studio. I styled and did hair and makeup for 3 kids during this photo shoot production. I love working with children because of they blunt, funny and imaginative.

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.

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. GLN initial focus on sharing ministry innovations with pioneering church leaders has evolved, and now they exclusively focus on leadership development. Today, GLN exist not just to serve church leaders, but Christians in all sectors of society to impact the world.

I had a great time working with Global Leadership Network, OX Creates and Justin Bell Productions as a Los Angeles wardrobe stylist and hope to create a lasting business relationship with them for the future.

Los Angeles Wardrobe Stylist | Birdies Evergreen Video

Los Angeles Wardrobe Stylist | Birdies Evergreen Video

I would like to share a great experience I had working as a Los Angeles wardrobe stylist with Tiger House Films commercial production company. I have already worked with THF on numerous projects, as a wardrobe stylist, makeup artist or creative coordinator.

As a Los Angeles wardrobe stylist, I’ve had the opportunity to work with Birdies slippers. In this blog article, I would like to share with you a couple of useful tricks and tips on how I created the styling looks for our model, Olga for this campaign video.

1) Fit is incredibly important. Olga has a perfect shape and everything I bought for this video shooting fit to her incredibly well. I used a lot of black and white, high quality clothes. Ultimately, I really believe you should just wear what you love and what makes you feel happy.

2) I love incorporating silk and classic pieces into my styling and collection. There’s nothing cooler to me than a delicate top worn with stiff vintage jeans and Birdies flats for a day out.

3) Make sure on every take the clothes, shoes fit perfectly, specially when you have multiple models. On the monitor you can watch the video at the same time when the cinematographer is shooting so you can make sure everything looks exactly the way you want it. You need to check the details and at the same time the full image as well.

I’m a wardrobe stylist and these Birdies shoes are something I could wear all day on my feet when I’m on set.

TV Commercial Wardrobe Stylist | New York Life Insurance

TV Commercial Wardrobe Stylist I New York Life Insurance

As a TV commercial wardrobe stylist in California, I had the opportunity of working with Tiger House Films commercial production company’s team on New York Life Insurance videos multiple times during this year.

Our theme for this commercial video production was “Celebrating Milestones: Diwali”
Diwali is a Hindu festival of lights, held in the period October to November. It is particularly associated with Lakshmi, the goddess of prosperity, and marks the beginning of the fiscal year in India. In total, we had approximately 15 cast members for these 3 videos for the same Diwali theme. All of our cast members were bringing multiple wardrobe choices and I prepared outfit options as well as matching to New York Life Insurance previous advertisements.

A commercial wardrobe stylist is one of the most trending businesses within the fashion and commercial world internationally. What a wardrobe stylist does is pick the clothing and accessories for TV commercials, editorials, print or advertising campaigns and music videos produced by advertising agencies and production companies. This profession is really an essential element in the process of creating advertising campaigns and commercials.

As a TV commercial wardrobe stylist based in Los Angeles, I mostly work on TV commercials, branded videos, and campaigns. I really enjoyed collaborating with the creative team on this New York Life Insurance web commercial.
