Every day is truly unique. One day we might be busy sourcing props or materials for an upcoming event or photo shoot and the next we’re on-site in production mode. Then there are days spent behind the desk punching away at the keyboard. Most evenings are spent meeting new clients and/or meeting with existing clients in our offices or on Skype (with international clients). You’ve been asked to style an event. What’s next? What’s your first step? Get as much information as possible from the client, preferably face-to-face or via Skype. The more information you can get from them, the better. Communication is key, as is honesty and images (from clients, to get an idea of their taste and style). Also, in the first meeting with a new client, I like to ask: ‘What are the three main things you want your guests to walk away saying after they’ve left your event?’ Styling is not always about the look; it’s about a feeling.
