I’ve been working at Harvey Nichols for a few months now,and yesterday I got the chance to take part in Style Academy with a few of my colleagues, including stylist/blogger Georgia Gordon.
The one-day intensive course including tutorials by various experts on how to style different genders, skin tones, body shapes etc, and for different budgets, styles and occasions. We got to learn about how make up, jewellery, accessories and fragrance can bring the look together along with the clothes, and a more in-depth review of how different styles of service work on luxury fashion customer. It culminated in a styling adventure challenge, where Georgia and I teamed up to be personal stylists for eachother and take pictures of the outfits for various briefs. It was great dressing up with no inhibitions, no limitations on price (of course we went a bit crazy!), and with a new, refreshing perspective from others.
My first outfit was a
Sachin & Babi light blue satin gown with embroidered floral design, sequin embellishments, contrast black crepe bodice, and oversized bows at the back. You can buy the dress here.
Look number two: a cute little suede frock by BCBG MazAzria. This fit me like a glove, and I was surprised how much I liked the bold coral-red against my pale skin.
