If you are an upcoming stylist, you have to understand that styling requires working in a fast-paced environment involving high stakes - money, time and effort, both physical and mental. If I haven’t scared you off of it yet as a career option, then you’re welcome to view and get inspired by Velvet Rouge Fashion Styling Diaries below;
THE GOTHIC UNDERGROUND SEXY
This styling look was insipired by the grittines, music and dirty alley ways of London town. London streets is very much steep in history and unique which still shows in its streets today.
The fashion styling in this particular story was to bring the gothic, dark and sexy chicness of London underground fashion to life but still mixed with a bit of African tradition by introducing the 'GELE' into the mix of things(picturebelow).
STORY 2 - I LIVE BY BRIGHT COLORS ONLY
This fashion story was inspired by the colour visions in my imagination. Funmi says
"I have a passion for Bright and Bold colours and i wanted to express that in the shoot, the styling is very much very playful and fun with different textures.."
A lot of quirky accessories and candy make up was used in this shoot. For example pads and 50's postcards as brooches on a military jacket, vintage dresses where accessorized with bright colourful feathers,I also was inspired by the power 1990's with that twist on wall street look when women wore shoulder pad blouse style jackets with boyfriend tailored trousers. I was also inspired by the trendy fashion of Tokyo girls in japan.
