I have worked in the fashion media business for many years (I have pins older than some young stylists). So I have a vast range of experience in fashion, styling and working with people (not to mention a few divas). Oh and also working with kids and animals (and, if you want to know, elephants are the easiest).
As a top fashion stylist I could find myself surreally ironing dresses half way up a mountain one day and, the next, dressing Jerry Hall in a giant clamshell as Botticelli's Venus. I have travelled all over the world with my prop kit, watching the sun rise in Hawaii - and sometimes not rising because of heavy cloud in other exotic destinations. I've been thigh deep in snow in Lapland and drenched by a monsoon in Miami. But, hey, I would never complain because what better way to make a living?
On the fashion retail side, I started fashion life on the trade bibles, Drapers Record
and Men's Wear. I have also worked with stores such a Beales,
redesigned a boutique on the South Coast and been a consultant for a
high quality tailoring collection.
You will see that I have a Sport category - this is because I like to balance the glitter with the fitter. As a recreational runner (I have managed six marathons) and seasoned windsurfer, skier and snowboarder, not only does it keep me fit but it also means I am as up to speed with the latest neoprene as with the latest neo Preen.
I rather be known as a Stylist than a Fashionista because style will always outlive fashion. To plagiarise Yves Saint Laurent (and slightly edit) his philosophy, this will be my epitaph: Fashions fade, but a stylist is eternal.
