KATELYNN PENN

Katelynn Penn, was not afraid to come out the closest, and show the world that she was gay. She is one confident young women I can call a friend. She has always been a Tom boy. She has always wanted to try look her best, but didn’t know how.
I definitely pushed her out of her comfort zone whilst shopping, we laughed throughout the day, especially when I made her put on a dress. Which she hasn’t for years !! She made me promise to not show anyone.. At the end of the day, it’s all about her personal style personality. I decided to add layers in her hair to suit her oblong face, along with a treatment. It’s so important to look after your hair and give the nutrients it needs to give that healthy shine. She loved the outfit, because it was who she was as a person.. All I did, was bring out her confidence in her outer image.
Katelynn, was such a pleasure to help.

South African Power Couple

Carissa Bosman, my lecturer who automatically became a dear friend during my studies asked myself, Katia  Teixeira and Gwen Hollander to style this South African Power Couple for (magazine name) magazine cover. Before the day, we had to shop as a team in Canal Walk Mall, find 5 outfits each, for both bride and groom. We had never met them but had their measurements along with profile images. On the day, 4 of us ladies, arrived with 4 huge suitcases, filled with clothes, shoes, accessories and make-up. The location was stunning, shooting in-between wine farms around Somerset West. I remember one of the dresses were too big for the bride, so as stylists, we make a plan, opened up our emergency style kits and pinned the whole back of her dress with safety pins. Whilst shooting, our job is to make sure everything is perfect. A few touch ups here and there, adding more lipstick, guiding the couple how to pose example: checking their chin’s are in line with eachothers. The shoot took the whole day, but what a success it was ! The following day SA Image, invited us to style another magazine cover. For another gorgeous couple. Amazing experience.

CATHRINE WILLEMSE

Cathrine Willemse, was about to enter the world as a qualified accountant.
She needed a change, from everyday studying in sweat pants, hoodies or wearing her boyfriends clothes. She had lost her sense of style and wanted to look the part… She picked the “Full Make-Over Package”.

We first started with a consultation, did her Style Test and Colour Analysis.
I taught her how to apply her own make up, then to learn how to walk in heels again.

The next package we did was “Wardrobe Analysis”, said goodbye to all unnecessary clothes. I tried to save as much as possible but unfortunately most of them didn’t compliment her.
The time had come to have some fun, next was the “Shopping Package”, our shopping session took 6 hours long. We visited Woolworths, Zara, YDE, H&M and Cotton On. I can say we definitely shopped until we dropped!!

Then lastly put all her new clothes together and made many different outfits. From casual outfits to professional outfits for work. After spending 2 weeks with her, It was such a rewarding feeling seeing such a clever young woman glowing with such confidence. I knew my job was complete. As an Image Consultant and Stylist, I truly enjoyed my experience with Cathrine. We created such a special bond.
