Just a few words on this seminar not aiming to give a summary of the fashion talks of this session.
The main task of a styling consultant is to be a kind of mirror for the designer of a fashion house. Giving advise, informing about the international trends, looks and forecasting in the fashion industry at the start of a collection, following by keeping the designer on track. Is the identity of the new look created by the designer a reflection of the image we have of the fashion house. A new collection must be recognizable for the fashion house but also renewing with a fresh air.
But a stylist will never intervene in the collection, the final concept is always by the designer himself. A designer will listen to the stylist but it doesn't mean he will follow up the advise blindly.

As a styling consultant you will probably not only work for one fashion house so you really have to understand what the identity is from the designer. Besides consults on the collection a stylist plays a main part in organizing a fashion show. The aim of a stylist at a fashion show is to accentuate the style and image of the fashion house but not predominate by choice of accessories, shoes or any other props. As well as a make up artist or a production designer must do.

Seeing a fashion show the complete picture must be about the collection, not about the styling, the make up or the decoration, but a total look!

The next session is on Saturday the 10th of March at 2 o'clock: Working as stylist in the trade.
