The role of the fashion stylist has changed immensely over the years. Stylists are no longer completely behind-the-scenes, and many are just as famous as their A-list client counterparts. In this book, we'll take you through six case studies in which you'll meet well known stylists including Rachel Zoe, Cristina Ehrlich and Estee Stanley, Britt Bardo, Jessica Paster, Monica Rose, and Nicole Chavez. We'll help you dissect exactly what led to their success, and teach you how you can employ similar tactics in your own career.
You'll see that while many of those mentioned in the case studies currently live in fashion hubs such as New York City and Los Angeles, you don't have to start in a big city to achieve success. You'll also find that many of the case study subjects didn't originally have plans to pursue a career in style, but their love for the creative ultimately landed them in careers of their dreams. Plus, you'll explore additional avenues you may take in your styling profession such as on-camera work, writing, and even designing. The Stylist's Role has the answers to anything you've ever wondered about the industry.
