This day and age, stylist is a word that is used very loosely, primarily by those claiming to be such. A fashion stylist, in particular is much more than a person who dresses their best and occasionally makes suggestions to their family and friends hoards trendy clothes.
A stylist is person usually hired by a public relations specialist or brand manager. The stylists is given creative reign to collaborate with the client, photographer, make up artist and event coordinator to achieve the completeness of an overall image.
As fun as this job may sound it is a lot of responsibility. If the client does not look the image that he or she is suppose to fit, that brand could be tarnished. The stylists must supply and curate clothes and accessories—either purchased by the client or borrowed from designers—for an event or photo shoot. If the clothes are borrowed the stylists must get the clothes dry-cleaned and back to the designer in the same fashion it was borrowed.
One of my favorite up-and-coming stylist is Sable Tempest. Not only is Sable styling for VH1’s Love & Hip Hop New York’s newest cast member Tara Wallace, her great work has been recently featured on VH1’s Love & Hip Hop Red Carpet Style Guide.
When Sable isn’t styling she also designs in words for Karen Civil’s Live Civil cite, Vibe Vixen and serves as the online editor for Fashion NY Mag. As a native of New Jersey and a resident of New York City, Sable is constantly aware on the latest trends and fashions. Growing up in these progressive cities, she understands the hustle of the industry and knows how to succeed in a taxing environment.
Sable’s best attribute is indeed her personality. Her clients aren’t just a job to her; they are an extension of her passion. She takes the time to get to know them so they trust her and her fashion sense. Sable is definitely a trusted partner of Blueprint Marketing & Public Relations, LLC. Her hard work, professionalism and passion are the exact reasons we can contact Sable when our clients want to try something new or need an up-to-date fashion revamping.
