FASHION DESIGN & STYLING:
STYLING: If you’re looking for a stylist for a shoot or film, please contact me. I’ve styled for one mock bridal shoot Robyn Preston Photography) done in 2012 and since then I’ve styled for all of my own shoots. Depending on what you need I’m able to come in on a project to the extent that need. If styling an entire shoot I can source garment from local stores/designers (where I initiate contact; do the research; send you images; advise/consult), handle the clothing during and after the shoot (bringing to site; fitting the models; etc.); but I also designed pieces for this shoot (hair pieces).
Portfolio from this shoot can be seen here on my Carbonmade portfolio site. Other details about the shoot can be seen here on my Pinterest site that show the stockists and folks that participated on the projects. Items such as props I procured from local prop shops.
Rate A: For advising/consulting on a shoot or project for styling $100 for 2 hours.
Rate B: For styling an entire shoot; researching clothing/costumes; bringing clothing to shoot (2-3 looks) and handling clothing after shoot; fittings/dressing models; etc. is $800 per project; BUT if you have the clothing/accessories or part like you already have the clothing, but only need accessories then I can work with you and what you need for your project (rates will vary accordingly).
If interested pitch me your project/synopsis and I’ll look it over and tell you if I can do it or not. Contact me at email@example.com.
FASHION DESIGN: I am a graduate from FIDM with a degree in Fashion Design. I graduated in Dec 2014 and while in school as well as afterwards I have been doing my own fashion design in women’s clothing. I have done some hats and hair pieces as well as gown and dresses. The garments shown below are samples and are available for renting for red carpet event or for use in a film. The dresses have been used in photoshoots and seen in a limited way. The Punk Rock Gown was worn by me to the Virgin Atlantic Melbourne Fashion Festival (VAMFF) and was photographed. You can see the shot under the Press/Media page. To rent the Punk Rock Gown, the cost is $100 (the dresses would be $80). It includes a fitting for 1 hour prior to the event, cleaning of the garment, and dropping off/picking up the gown. I am in the process of creating new designs which will show up here and at my Etsy shop when available. (If you are interested in modeling, please contact me via email with an image and your dimensions (body/height) and I’ll add you to the list. I’m interested in most body types as I’m just starting out.) I am also able to design on demand for a particular event. Fabrics I’m working with mainly right now are jersey and recycled t-shirts as shown below. I can design something unique depending on theme using recycled t-shirts such as rock n’ roll tshirts or graphic tees that might revolve around a topic (like numbers or tattoos or the circus, for example). All designs are one-of-a-kind and another gown like the one below will have a similar shape, but will not necessarily be the exact same design. I am able to incorporate design features if so desired (such as sleeveless, slits, etc.). My stitching is very much distressed intentionally to capture an urban or edgy vibe. Pricing will start at $200 and will include (fittings, research into fabrics and styles). Generally this type of work will take 3-4 weeks depending on complexity.
