Get Organised

Along with getting yourself prepped and sorted, you need to be thinking about your business and keeping that organised.

When working on a job I normally buy Volant Moleskine notebooks as well as plastic A4 & A6 button wallets

A4

Any paperwork I acquire over the course of each job I keep filed in one A4 plastic wallet.     

Label each wallet with the job name.

&

Each receipt will have the name of the job written on the back (just in case a stray receipt from another job goes into the wrong job wallet).

A6

Any receipts I have for that job will go into the A6 plastic wallet then into the A4 wallet.

 

Why a Volant notebook?

I like to keep each job separate and I like to file away the whole job once it is complete, rather than having notebooks, paperwork and receipts all over the place.

In the front of the notebook I would add:

Job Title - 

Job Number -

Booked By - 

Contact - 

Dates of the Job/ Date Booked - 

Number of Looks -   

You could of course write all your notes on a phone. I prefer to have this kind of information in analogue, and something I can go back to if need be, months or years later.

 Hello & welcome to the Fashion Stylist's Handbook blog. I’ve put together a whole heap of information for you to look through and devour. A lot of it you’ll find in my book, but this blog lets me delve further into the subject of fashion styling. I hope you enjoy what you find and that it’s useful.  I first wrote  Fashion Stylist's Handbook  to help young stylists who were starting off in the industry understand how the fashion styling system works. But the more I work, the more I write and the more people I speak to about the book and the industry, the more I’ve become aware of how little information people outside the industry have about the work of a stylist.  So I give you this blog: whether you’re a stylist starting out and wanting to get into editorial; an instagrammer, a blogger or a YouTuber wanting to know how to acquire clothes for advertising; or a start-up company needing a team, with no idea of how the industry works or what to ask for.
