softgrey knows exactly how it works, sometimes designers even attempt.. bribing the stylists to get their clothes in a fashionshoot
much more the rising names my dearest scott*
i wonder who in europe gave you this false info, because i know it wasnt me quite not correct

over all , its a great compliment for a designer to be asked by a stylist to borrow clothes for a shoot including some.. commercial use (pop videos) but never for films or advertising, this the stylist (through advertising company) has to pay for, but its always included in the budget the stylist asks for the job, so, its quite painless.

you'll be amazed how easily indie designers will be willing to borrow stylists clothes even for test shots (either for a photographer or a model) at the end everyone gets happy out of the free shots for their own books
hi lena-

nice to meet you...i really enjoy your posts. xx

you should call some stylists and ask if they need an assistant...


find the names of some agencies that represent some busy stylists and offfer to work for free if youhave to ...
just to get some experience...
and then you can meet some more people and then you will have some experience...
so the next time you will get paid...

it starts like this...

Jump, it's a catch 22 sometimes. You wanna get high end stuff in your book, but you can't get that without a book or a name sometimes. I started off doing credit card pulls, and then building relationships with designers and then pr houses. When you work editorials, the PR person will often need to see a few issues of the publication, and a letter from the magazine. That's the deal with my contacts, softgrey, how's it it new york?

As to Faust's original question, the whole advertising/editorial credit game is one that goes on at every fashion magazine. Each month, there is a meeting between the fashion director/assistant and the advertising director to discuss who will be advertising in the issue and how they will be compensated via editorial credits. It's often extremely hard to get bridge and diffusion lines shot by top photographers. Mario Testino isn't about to shoot Baby Phat. But often those secondary lines are the biggest advertisers--DKNY, the aforementioned Baby Phat, Diesel, Sisley, etc. So this is where the editorial section of the mag needs to get creative and cook up ways to get these credits represented. It's not always easy, but for any magazine to function, it has to respect its advertisers and support them in the editorials.

metal i think u are right....here it almost doesnt exists fashion advertising (besides dpt stores) so the game here goes more if and editor or stylist like it or not the clothes....there is one or two mag that are known for charging the brands or the designers to get editorial presence....i think its also ddpend of the magazine policy about it.....thats why sometime we saw banana republic in bazaar or st john in w or vogue i think.....

Wow. That's so wonderful. See, in a pure, ideal world, the editors would get together and only feature the clothes they liked. But then where would Versace, Baby Phat, and St. John go? I think it's so great that some magazines still work like that. But are they not so desperate for advertising? Do they receive corporate funding from somewhere?

like it was said before, you should call them up and offer your services. if they like you over the phone (make a good impression!) perhaps you should take a portfolio showing you can do some work and show it to them?
