Karen Gold lookbook styling: Backstage.
Fashion styling at work
These past few months have been a roller coaster. From work and private life to business and personal growth.

Since September, I have been styling nearly every week. On my previous post, here I wrote about what it takes to prepare a photoshoot (HERE)…One of my recent work was for Karen Gold. I was very much touched by her story and how she became a designer.

I love working with new designers as they put so much work and dedication into their creations and generally don’t get as much exposure or recognition.  But when I saw how dedicated Karen was; from how she sources her fabrics the little touches, she adds to her designs. I was pleased to work with her and style her lookbook.

Karen Gold (KG) is a contemporary British brand that caters to the aspirational man and woman who value their individuality and freedom of choice. Their simple modern designs embody a passion for life and success and showcase effortless style with clean minimal sharp tailored trans-seasonal pieces with rich colours and visual appeal.

Karen Gold reflects a sense of timeless elegance focusing on fine fabrics and the perfect fit with the aim to boost the wearer confidence. So it was down to me to showcase this through the scenery I chose for the lookbook. Which you can see here with these pictures we took behind the scenes.

For my personal style,  the prints came out to the max. As I have been challenging myself to wear them as much as possible and I really feel my style evolving, I am getting more and more experimental. I guess that ‘s what fashion is all about. The constant need to create and reinvent oneself.

Get the look or similar items below and don’t be afraid to play with prints.

PS: The models where absolutely great and they truly sold those blazers to me.

This week as an office outfit, why not try a smart pencil dress? Office Outfit

Going to work or simply choosing an outfit for a corporate event can be quite daunting for some.

I layered one of my favourite shirt with a pencil dress. Though I initially thought the green colour was a bit too vibrant, The jacket had to help tone it down.

However, as the creative bubble that I am, I matched the dress with some pattern heels and added a statement piece on my neck.

  3. Discover and connect with new designers
  4. Do research for my next big write up
  5. Get more designs for my future lookbooks.
