Are you thinking about trying yourself as a personal stylist or a wardrobe stylist?
Is it important how old you are, where you live or what is your profession?
Today we will tell you what is needed to be a wardrobe stylist and who canʼt make such a career.
Let’s start with a little story:
One woman called to our fashion school.
She was 65 years old, retired. She said that she really likes the fashion world, but does not dare to start studying for a stylist, because she is ashamed.
After all, how many elderly people are allowed to engage in fashion?
You can be a stylist at any age. And in general fashion designers and fashion stylists, who are over more than 50, create fashion today. The stylist can be a man or a woman from 18 to 80 years old from any city or country.
But there are 2 mandatory qualities that should be if you decide to become an image consultant.
What are these qualities?
First quality: good taste and love to fashion.
Ask yourself these questions:
– Do you like to look at stylish people?
– Do you like shopping ?
– Do you like to see on the Internet how fashion bloggers and famous people are dressed?
If the answer is yes, then you are interested in fashion and style.
Second quality: it is flexibility and creativity.
Surprisingly, some people say that the most important quality for beginning image-making stylists is sociability, but this is a big mistake.
The stylist must create something new. He/she constantly experiments with wardrobe and styles. And it is not necessary at all if he/she is not very sociable.
Unfortunately, not everyone has the flexibility. The problem of many stylists is a very strong fixing within the existing boundaries and a desire to follow only according to the established rules.
Do you like to change something around you?
Do you like to be engaged in any creativity and make something new?
If the answer is yes, then you have this quality.
