I’ve been fortunate enough to style a variety of people in an assortment of professions over the years. Each person is unique, with different needs based on what they’ll be doing in the items I’ve styled them in. This is why I always incorporate one specific element into all of my professional styling services: functionality.
Recently, I’ve had the opportunity to style local TV presenters for their on-camera segments and functionality was just as important as the fashion. They’ve got to be able to move around the set while looking good at all times and from a variety of angles. Have you ever noticed how television presenters always appear so polished and put together?
