One more question...
Beyond the designers lookbook…getting to work with stylists…

I did not know that stylists create the concepts for magazine editorials, and then sell it to the magazine – I always assumed the magazine hires the stylist to execute a particular idea. So for a designer, particularly an emerging one, it seems important to have good relationships with stylists, if we ever want to get the exposure an editorial can lead to.

Question: How do you recommend that an emerging designer find and cultivate relationships with stylists? Also, are stylists just really going to be interested in bigger name designers (like Prada, I read in an earlier post), rather than smaller/unknown designers?

they're all good questions though and it's important to ask...
edit-i've realized that your questions really aren't about becoming a fashion stylist..

i suggest you cut and paste them into a new thread in designers and collections...i bet you get a bigger response there...
how to create a lookbook...

I'll do that, I thought about it before, but I thought that stylists would have a good perspective to answer those particular questions.

I'll post it in Designers and collections.

It depends, we all have different day rates. The agency you are with usually negotiates that for you.
