Figure out your lane
There are many different categories of fashion styling. You can try them all if you're lucky, but perhaps there's a type of work that especially interests you. There are celebrity stylists, who work closely with all types of talent on everything from their personal style, red carpet getup, and public appearances. There are editorial stylists that for the most part work with magazines and photographers on artsy, evocative fashion stories. There are also stylists and publications whose work blurs the line between the two—especially when working with celebrities in the realms of sports and music, where elements of costume can come into play. Find out what kind of work really speaks to you, and pursue that.
