HI NM! Just read your post..sorry for the delay..the answer to your question is yess! definitely give assisting a go..its the best way for a novice to start..I never assisted, mostly because no one gave me a chance since I had no fashion background. but I didn't let that stop me and I started out as a "stylist" but really no experience but photogs were open to me since no established stylists were giving them the time of day either. But assisting can take you very very far..and it doesn't have to be this or that, it can be this AND that, so while you assist, still contact novice photogs and start getting prints for your book. People will feel more comfortable with you once you have some tangible work to look at. If you are determined and have a knack for this then it will just be a matter of time before you can achieve your dreams! please feel free to continue to pick my brain..xoxo!
Hi! Glad you liked the article! Your situation is similar to mine and believe me, if you've already got the talent, all you need is perseverance and stick-to-it-ness if that makes any sense. Not sure what stage you are in? are you a novice just starting out? or do you already have experience and have a portfolio to show? Age does not matter! I started my career when I was 27, had no prior experience nor any "fashion" education. My best advice is get in touch with photographers, beging testing to get prints for you book, if you don't already have one, and then start showing your book to agents in and around LA..this is one direction you can go in, but definitely feel free to ask me for more specifics. I'd love to help! xo! Gisela
Hi Tracey, If you got to the brands' website, they usually have a contact link..and they will normally list their PR agency or their PR contact, either an email or a number or both. That's the cheap way to do it. Now if you want the easy yet expensive way, get LEBOOK at www.lebook.com and it will list every fashion PR agency and brand PR info in all of NY, Paris, Milan, etc. It's the stylists's bible, I swear by it :-) Good luck!
Hi Tasha, It's all about PR! You can do your own public relations and avoid paying lots of money outsourcing marketing to an agency. My advice is that you get LE BOOK, its a book that acts as a rolodex of all the industry contacts in all categories including stylists. Get your hands on that and look for stylists emails/websites and start emailing them introducing yourself and mailing out samples. This is one way you can get your pieces into magazines and on celebs. Visit www.lebook.com, its pretty pricey but its a great investment! I've had mine for years and I never had to get the yearly updated versions. Hope this helps! Also, I'd love to know how you started your online boutique!!
omg manita! im still debating keeping them! they are half inch small and its cause my feet got fat after the pregnancy and still haven't gone down, lool.. will decide soon!
I wanna thank Pretty Girl for opening up my eyes! I was subconsciously blaming my babies for me not wearing heels and like she said, it's not their fault. So I will refrain from saying such things..Yes I can't wear heels at the moment but they will grow and soon I will be able to wear 6 inche heels again! til' then, hello flats! thanks again pretty girl :-) times like this makes blogging worth my time!
