Stylist Fashion Director Arabella Greenhill | F10 Advocate

Arabella Greenhill! Stylist magazine’s Arabella Greenhill is the Fashion Director, and a pretty cool one (if you ask us). She’s said:

My Fridja steamer is the first thing I pack in my suitcase when travelling for fashion weeks or shoots. Light, quick and so easy to use.

Condé Nast College | How To Be A Stylist

Fashion Stylist’s Handbook author Danielle Griffiths, asked me to accompany her for a lecture at the Condé Nast College of Fashion and Design during which she reveals her trade secrets when working as a fashion stylist.

 

After a rocky journey in, I arrived with a couple of steamers to show the students. I’m not sure i’ve ever seen so many iPhone X’s.

Condé Nast College of Fashion and Design

 

In the heart of soho, buried amongst the best places to eat in the UK, you’ll find the Condé Nast College of Fashion and Design. A gloriously fresh white walled grey floored building. The lecture was to a small group of students who were studying their BA in Fashion Communications.

Danielle Griffiths

 

Danielle is a freelance stylist, whose work appears in Belgium’s De Standaard Magazine. It’s the equivalent of the Sunday Times etc. Her combination of experience and frankness (on how to be a boss stylist) was truly enlightening. Although I won’t go into loads of the lecture (they aren’t my secrets to tell!) I will tell you three things that I learnt in the lecture. Then I will show you what I had for lunch.

First Golden Nugget

 

You can buy a special product that removes white marks from deodorant. However, if you get the foam from a hanger from the dry cleaners, it removes it for free! First golden nugget did not disappoint did it?

Props to all those who work at Hangerworld, we’re basically family.

Second Golden Gem

 

You can buy a portable changing room, which is great for shoots on a location where there might not be a suitable changing room. It might also be great if there’s a long line in Topshop. Danielle suggested to use a hula hoop with some material instead! Amazing!

Final Nugget of Delight

 

The last one from me is a simple saying. And I think it’s a good one!

 

A man’s jacket should always button left over right, as a woman is always right… over left.

 

Conde Naste

 

And now you know! Thank you so much Danielle! Be sure to check our her instagram, her tag #knowyourstylists and her blog. Oh and buy the book for more golden nuggets obvs.

And seeing as you asked so nicely, here’s what I had for lunch. I give it a 6/10 of noodle soups. But i give noodles soups as a food group a 9/10.

PAUSE Mag 10 Styling Kit Essentials

Pause magazine’s 10 styling kit essentials is THE LIST if you want to be a stylist. Knocking together an outfit is certainly a skill, but turn up to a job where you’re charging £200 and up a day, you’ll need these things in your arsenal!

1 – Bag! You need yourself a bag. Whether it’s this bag or another, you’ll need a bag. Two hands and a Sainsbury’s bag for life just won’t cut it.

2 – f10 Steamer, obvs.

5 – Wipes! Some annoying model got fake tan on your MIH Baby Blue Lebrun Jacket? CURSES! Time to get your wipe on.

 

6 – A notepad and pen! Typing things into your iPhone 6s just won’t cut it I’m afraid. Pull out some fancy stationary and they’ll know you’re the business. Two week campaign in Barbados job on the horizon?

 

7 – Pop-Ons. Erm. Good photo! Great idea if you don’t want to deal with an angry PR firm when you return something back with red lipstick on!

 

8 – Lint roller! Nobody loves your cat or the models cat, especially this brand.

Fashion Stylist’s Handbook

Putting together a great outfit is definitely something that some people find easier than other people. If you want to take things to the next level and get paid? You’ll need to learn how to become a proper fashion stylist. Being a stylist is so much MUCH more than compiling clothes, and last time I checked (about 15 years ago) it’s not one of those professions that gets taught at GCSEs. So, what to do?

Well, Danielle Griffiths contacted us telling us that she was writing a handbook on this very subject. She’d been a customer of ours from years ago and she wanted to include us in the book. She then sent us a copy of the Fashion Stylist’s Handbook, and we LOVE it.

 

Danielle Griffiths

 

Becoming a stylist is definitely more than carting around clothes in a suitcase (although there’s a lot of that too). Danielle sets out the path for all aspirational fashion stylists in a clear, no-nonsense manual. How to go from offer to shoot, how to develop valuable relationships with PR companies (who will lend you their clients clobber), how to run your styling business and of course what to keep in your styling kit!

 

 

If you’re thinking about getting into styling, invest in this book. For under £20, you’ll learn so much that is expected from a stylist and have a handbook for things you’ll need to reference. Just for example, the different ways to knot a tie and converting dress sizes, who knew? You did.

 

 

You can pick up the book from this link here, if you’re serious about becoming a stylist. The rest is up to you!
