STYLING FOR TV WEEKEND WORKSHOP
Styling for television and media personalities is one of the most sought after professions within the styling industry. It is, however extremely hard to break into due to the competitive nature of the role. Working in TV can be ruthless. In many cases you are just a number and replaced at the drop of a hat. Unless you work full-time for a network wardrobe department (where jobs are very limited) you are generally working as a freelancer so securing that next job can often be a challenge. Networking and gaining the trust of the networks, production managers and talent is integral to your success. Once you are a trusted professional in your field and build up a set of contacts you will see return business and increased demand for your services. It is wonderfully rewarding career as a Wardrobe Stylist for television especially when you see all your hard work come into fruition on screen.
WHAT WE COVER
Media personalities come in all different shapes and sizes and unlike dressing models for fashion campaigns, it is essential that you work to their personal body shape and style preferences. When dressing someone for television you are working to a brief, be it the talent's role and personality, the style of the show or a character they might be playing for a role. You also need to consider the technical side of things when it comes to TV like camera angles, suitability for the target audience and direction from the Executive Producer. Budget and sourcing strategy is also a key consideration with styling for TV. In this workshop we look at how to source clothing and tips on working to budget.
This weekend workshop is suitable for anyone wishing to embark on a career in Styling for television and media. Little to no experience is required for you to come along, however we do see a great deal of interest from Personal and Fashion Stylists wanting to break into this arena.
