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.

Freelance wardrobe stylist | Birdies Slippers Campaign Video

Freelance wardrobe stylist | Birdies Slippers Campaign Video

As a freelance wardrobe stylist, I collaborated with Tiger House Films, commercial and branded content production company on video campaign for Birdies slippers. THF has the privilege of producing many fashion and luxury brand campaigns in both the video and still photography.

Our branded content production with San Francisco based company Birdies Slippers consisted of four separate videos for social media, hi-lighting different styles from their current diverse and colorful collection.

Birdies, is a footwear company founded by former Facebook and Ross Stores executives, Bianca Gates and Marisa Sharkey. The brand markets their products to busy, on the go women. The brand designs stylish house slippers that combine a seven layer sole for comfort and, a hard sole so that they are wearable outdoors like sneakers, the slippers sell for around $140.

The themes our branded content production company formulated with the Birdies team consisted of videos named the holiday, travel and evergreen spots, each telling a unique story surrounding one model. As a freelance wardrobe stylist, I had to change our model, Olga multiple times throughout the 2 shooting days and match her outfits to the different themes.

The holiday branded content production was appropriately marketed for the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons, consisting of holiday decor, baking, shopping and table setting.

Our other branded content videos had our model making travel plans, going to the bakery, playing with her puppy and other fun activities all while wearing her birdies slippers. I had a great time working with Birdies and THF commercial production company as a freelance wardrobe stylist and hope to create a lasting business relationship with them for the future.

Tiger House Films production company worked in conjunction with the birdies creatives to implement a tight schedule with various location moves.

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.

As a Los Angeles celebrity stylist you will need to compete with other stylists for the most wanted dresses. In Hollywood the level for a stylist is very high, all of the celebrities want to be the best dressed for their events so you will need to make sure you are the one who styled them.

Wardrobe Stylist in Los Angeles | Gillette Fuse Commercial

Wardrobe Stylist in Los Angeles | Gillette Fuse Commercial

As a wardrobe stylist in Los Angeles, I’ve had the opportunity to work with Gillette. and Justin Bell Productions on their new product launch “Gillette Fuse” commercial.

I had 3 talents/models to style and work on their hair and makeup looks.

The client requested V neck and crew-neck tee options with a not-too-high neckline in solid colors: white, grey and Gillette blues only and for bottoms sweats or non-distracting pajama.

We asked the talents to arrive fresh out of the shower hairstyle and contemporary cut, as the makeup looks go I applied camera-ready makeup. The talents shaved on the camera so they had to have 2-3 days of facial hair.

A professional wardrobe stylist is one of the 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.

As a TV commercial wardrobe stylist in Los Angeles, I mostly work on TV commercials, branded videos, and campaigns. I really enjoyed collaborating with the production team on this Gillette commercial. I get excited about working with brands and about what I can contribute to their project. Most of all, I love the delight of seeing my work used by clients in some of their major campaigns.

Hollywood Celebrity Wardrobe Stylist | Solstice Magazine Publication

I would like to share an amazing experience I had working as a Hollywood celebrity wardrobe stylist with Tarek Reed fashion photographer. I have already worked with him on a couple of projects,  his works are simply stunning. Tarek Reed is an editorial and commercial photographer, based in Boston, Miami and Los Angeles.

Our model for this editorial photo shoot was Lyssa Roberts, she is a Los Angeles based actress and model. Lyssa was very easy going and professional to work with.

Every story is what makes an outstanding fashion photograph exceptional and every story begins with an idea. Our idea for this shoot was recreating the old Hollywood on a film shoot so we matched Lyssa’s styling and hair makeup according to that style. As a Hollywood celebrity wardrobe stylist, I loved working on this project.

We rented the clothes from a showroom called Le Maison de Fashion on Melrose Avenue, a snug boutique features a range of stylish high-end designer fashions, accessories & shoes for women.

One of the best things about being a Hollywood celebrity wardrobe stylist is the opportunity to travel all over the world, discover new cities, locations and explore the places you love.

Solstice Magazine was created by Sebastian Santa Maria, a London based fashion photographer. The magazine is a high-quality publication with a view to giving fashion and photographically orientated creatives another platform for expressing themselves through the visual and written mediums.

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.

Celebrity Makeup Artist Los Angeles | Essentia Billboard

Celebrity Makeup Artist Los Angeles | Essentia Billboard

Being a celebrity makeup artist Los Angeles has some totally fun perks. The other day I was at the Grove, and the advertisement I worked on appeared on the billboard! This is one of the projects I had fun working on, and what I am proud of, is that this particular campaign I did with Essentia called the Overachievers Nation was marketed heavily throughout the United States. We shot with the celebrity singer and songwriter, Arlissa, who flew all the way from London. She looked gorgeous in the advertisement.

My goal is to keep the consistent work I am getting as a celebrity stylist and makeup artist in Los Angeles who works with video shoots for big brands. For this campaign, I worked with STORIES International which is a trusted agency and commercial production company from Los Angeles. They have handled campaigns for well-known companies such as Sony, Subaru, KFC, IKEA, etc. STORIES International has a long list of clients on their website. The Overachievers Nations is directed by the talented Austin Will, who has done works for Puma, Nike, and other active lifestyle related campaigns.

The campaign took us one day to shoot. We did the production at Hotel Cafe which is a Hollywood club. I was excited to get my hands on the job to shoot on that day. I did the celebrity stylist tasks first and we started choosing pieces for Arlissa’s wardrobe. She was fun to style because she got the unique, fit and gorgeous look perfect for the Essentia brand.

After taking care of her wardrobe, we immediately proceeded to Arlissa’s makeup. For her makeup, we chose the natural look. The concept of the video is centered on what she does, that is why we want her to look as natural and comfortable as she regularly does. I really liked working on the look because she seemed effortlessly stunning in the photos, especially when I saw the ad on the billboard.

The advertisement was also shown on different platforms all over the United States. It was seen in print, online and billboard, including that one in the premium location at the Grove, Los Angeles. I always feel delighted when I  see a campaign I worked on, especially this Overachievers Nation project. Essentia was a great company to work with. It was a pleasure completing this beautiful advertisement. If you want to have a peek of the advertisement, you can also see the video on their website.

Essentia currently provides smooth tasting alkaline bottled water and has been popular with athletes who play physically demanding sports or go through lots of energy and demanding tasks every day. These people need to replenish and refresh after their arduous workouts. Arlissa was indeed a perfect person for this ad as she performs and burns through energy very quickly on stage.

Overall, it was a memorable experience and seeing the billboard made me realize how rewarding it is to be a celebrity stylist or celebrity makeup artist. Los Angeles is a great place for this profession. You get to meet amazing people and brands, and you get to see your work shown and admired by strangers as well as the general public.

Top Makeup Artist in Los Angeles | Domyos Sport Print Campaign

Top Makeup Artist in Los Angeles | Domyos Sport Print Campaign

I was working recently on a Domyos print campaign. Luckily I have been told that I am viewed as one of the top makeup artists in Los Angeles, therefore I am often asked to take on challenging and interesting projects. We were shooting over one day in a Hollywood house and one day in Venice Beach. Domyos is a successful sports clothing brand, known for their sportswear focusing on Decathlons.

We were going for athletic-inspired beauty and sport style makeup looks during this photoshoot. The athletic minimalistic look is defined by bare-bones makeup with an emphasis on glowing skin and strong eyebrows. The hair is usually in a sleek ponytail or worn loose and wet-looking. During this sporty photo shoot, I had 8 models to take care of in terms of makeup and hair styling. I was going for minimal, fresh looks without a lot of coverage. “Fresh,” “sporty,” and “young” these were the keywords during this shoot.

As a top makeup artist in Los Angeles, I love to create minimal makeup looks. Bare-faced beauty is all about looking like you’re letting your natural skin shine through just a glowier, more even-toned version of your natural skin. To create these looks, one of my favorite types of make are moisturizers, primers, BB creams, mascara, eyeliner, lip balm, and blush.

Decathlon‘s main mission is to make sport accessible to as many people as possible. They would like to help, inspire and guide people through their sports experiences. We believe that being active and discovering new sports every day is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Decathlon has 70 sport brands under one roof.

Personal Stylist and Makeup Artist in LA | Salvation Mountain Photoshoot

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.
