Questions to Stylists, Creative team, etc...
I am always amazed at all the info and interesting topics here at tfs…the only problem is there’s not enough time to read it all!
I’ve got some questions too because I really don’t know much about stylists…but I have come to appreciate the work so much more now that I have a slightly better understanding of what they do, and how they are needed…I am just recently getting it.
I am thinking about making a lookbook for a small line of clothing I am designing and I am trying to plan out all the elements and factors involved with this…I’ve got a lot to ask…so thanks in advance for taking the time.
1. The Photographer:
From talking to people, and reading the threads here…I gather that once I’ve got my design samples, I can hire a photographer (but of course I haven’t got a lot of money right now) or I can work out a “test” with one.
Question: what are the qualities I should look for in a photographer. I know that we have to be able to get one another on some level.
2. The Model:
I can work out the same “test” agreement with a model, right?
Question: What do you look for in a model? She has to fit into my sample garments, but I should think about her height too? What else? Should she look like my target customer (who actually is not a twiggy teen)?
3. Make-up and Hair:
Same “test”/trade agreement?
Question: I suppose we have to use our best judgment on what makeup looks best for my target customer, the clothes, image…Is there anything you’d suggest about this?
Question: on a limited budget (okay non-existent budget) how do you choose? Also if it’s just for a look book, I don’t want a location that is very active anyway right?
Lots of questions eh? Thanks for reading it all and responding…you’re really helping me to understand this process.
