The last two weeks has been really interesting, meeting stylists and discussing my ideas with them. Seeing if we are on the same page, visualising the collection in the same way and questionning if they understand the vision of the brand.
The feedback has been positive alongside constructive criticism in terms of the looks I presented and ideas for the shoot; some really made sense, which reinforced the importance of working with a stylist in terms of what they can bring to the table both conceptually and practically.
I think the biggest thing for me is the sense of creative discussion and bouncing ideas off one another but more importantly; collaboration.
I am really excited about working with new people and allowing for the brand to be developed in a variety of new ways especially as they will bring a range of experiences with them thus educating me in the process.
Developing in this way is important to me as I like learning; knowledge is power after all or more importantly empowering. I am still a complete novice but want my passion project to have a real opportunity to be successful in one way or another.
The definition of success is yet to be determined.
So, moving forward, I hope to make a decision by the end of the week because I want to book the studio and photographer to keep the momentum going.
