I was asked to work for the Screen Nation Awards as a general stylist this year, precisely last Sunday. Styling the screen nation awards with Idriss Elba winning on the night. Duties were to overview everything from hairstyling to the makeup of the models. Plus their fashion styling. Using Nzingha accessories, Massassbi skirts, and Angela corsets designs.
So first for work, I was dressed very casually.Then for the show, I changed into an ensemble of matching silk prints top and skirt I scored from MinkPink and the Jimmy Choo I have literary been killing lately and loaded the outfit in accessories (as usual).
**So feel free to click below and shop the look or similar.
What I have noticed so far in my styling journey is; every time I thought I scored a big gig, an even bigger opportunity came along. I am simply getting used to one challenging task after another and learning along.It also shows me how much perseverance having the right attitude is really the key.And as much as I love and value what I do.Being recognised is always encouraging.
Models: Fiona and Farah.
So, on the day; I was in charge of 8 girls. With 2, responsible for receiving and greeting the guests and celebrities amount which was: Idriss Alba who won an award, Joanna Jarjue, finalist of this year apprentice who also won an award and so many others.
