Fashion Stylists

The fashion stylist is a creative collaborator, working with photographers, art directors, models, design houses, and clients to produce a visual image, usually for commercial purposes. Fashion styling is both a technical and artistic occupation. The kind of work a fashion stylist performs depends on, among other things, the nature of the photography; the needs of the photographer, studio, and art director; and the requests of the client. Because these factors vary from one situation to another, it is impossible to list all the aspects of a fashion stylist’s job. In simple terms, what a stylist does is help to create a "look." The specifics of how it is done are far more complicated.
