00:00
I think people who aren't in the fashion world
00:04
don't understand what a fashion,
00:08
what a stylist does,
00:09
and what a fashion editor does.
00:12
So, how do you become a stylist?
00:16
It's good if you have formal training.
00:18
If you go, if you learn about design,
00:21
or have a background in art.
00:23
Anything that can help your career is great.
00:25
But, a stylist, most stylists
00:28
just born out of thinking they're really stylish.
00:31
So it's taste.
00:33
In a way.
00:34
Can you learn taste?
00:36
No.
00:36
[laughs]
00:37
[Older Man] Is it inborn?
00:38
But some stylists have made careers out of bad taste.
00:42
But you said that you learned a lot from Steven Meisel.
00:45
Yeah. I'd been working in London.
00:48
We came to New York to do Calvin with Roni,
00:50
the first big job I did with me and Craig.
00:52
And I was doing pretty well as a London stylist.
00:56
I was working with Dolce and Gabbana.
00:58
And I remember getting the booking to work with Steven.
01:02
And in London at the time, grant was coming to an end,
01:04
so everything was very minimal.
01:05
And I remember going on set with Steven,
01:07
and I was like,
01:08
"Okay, I've got the perfect white shirt, black pants."
01:12
I put it on, he took a picture.
01:15
Then, again, another shirt came
01:17
but this time the sleeves were rolled here very detail,
01:21
and more black pants.
01:23
He took a picture,
01:24
and I think another one came,
01:24
this time a little jacket with a white shirt,
01:27
and he goes, "Can you do anything else? I'm bored."
01:30
And I was like, "What?"
01:32
And then, from then, I was like,
01:35
"Alright, let's just go."
01:36
He taught me a lot. Garren too.
