WARDROBE STYLING: behind the scenes

February 16, 2012

// Spring 2012 Photo Shoot for Our South Bay magazine (April Issue)... behind the scenes! //

as i may {or may not} have mentioned before... I am a wardrobe stylist! (("my name is Vanessa and i'm addicted to clothes... hhhhhi Vanessa.")) ok, but for real. my job revolves around beautiful clothes and getting the right people into the right pieces. some days i could be in a clients closet helping them get organized or ready for a big event... and other days i could be on set for a photoshoot, like i was last week for Our South Bay magazine! the shoot was for their April 2012 issue and was located in beautiful {& slightly rustic} Rancho Palos Verdes! here is a behind the scenes ((sneek-peek)) of what a typical day as a Wardrobe Stylist can look like. 

**make sure check out Our South Bay magazine (or online) for the inside scoop of what's cool in the South Bay! i recently became a contributing blogger for their sight... so make sure to "like" them too! {For my non-California friends... the South Bay is a cluster of beach cities right outside (south) of LA}
**be warned: most of these photo's are taken with an iPhone, apologies.

   pulling for the shoot...
 [["Pulling" is when the wardrobe stylist will borrow & buy a large assortment of clothing, accessories, and props that will help tell a story in the final photo's! this "Pulling" takes place days & days before the shoot]]
        setting up shop & getting organized...
       and the work begins...
// the photographer Brad Bucksky was amazing. //


don't forget to grab one of these bad-boys when they hit the stands in April 2012!
well, what do ya think?!?!

How did you get into styling? I'm a designer and I have always thought styling would be a fun thing to do, but it seems like one of those "right place at the right time" kind of jobs so I was curious to find out how you got into it!
