Labeled stylist

At Gina Tricot HQ

Hallå där! Länge sedan jag skrev på svenska nu och har saknat det lite så det är dags igen. Och dagen till ära kan jag också berätta att jag börjat en praktik inom styling på Gina Tricot! Jag tjuvstartade lite i fredags då vi plåtade en kommande kollektion vilket var superkul. Igår var första dagen på kontoret och även då och t.o.m. idag har vi plåtat och plåtat och plåtat. I love it! Kontoret i Borås är så sjukt häftigt både utanför och inuti. Jag uppskattar verkligen att få arbeta i sådan miljö. Nu i början är det massor av nya grejer som jag ska lära och installera mig i men har fått träffa så många sjukt trevliga och begåvade människor som lär mig allt de kan och alla har verkligen varit välkomnande på kontoret. Jag längtar verkligen till imorgon! I am happy to tell you guys I began with an internship in styling at Gina Tricot last week! On my first day I got right into work and joined a shoot of an upcoming collection, which was super fun. Yesterday was the first day at the office and I got to join two more shoots. I love it! The office in Borås is so awesome both on the outside and inside. I really appreciate to be working in such an environment. Now, in the beginning itx27s lots of new stuff that I should learn and install me in but I get to meet so many nice and talented people that teach me everything they know and everyone has been really welcoming. So far - so good. Ix27m really longing for tomorrow! Tumnagel

Shape Up!

I donx27t know if Ix27ve mentioned this here before but I figure as fashion & beauty editor for the magazine Shape Up and each issue I have a page where you can ask me annything regarding those two topics, from which shoes to buy for spring to the difference between sythetic and natural hair make up brushes. Anyways the latest issue is in store right now. And speaking of Shaping Up, I got a new gym card earlier this week and have worked out 4 times thus far (itx27s only friday!) - My other half is very training orientated so I have the perfect Personal Trainer for free at home. Wex27ve relooked our dinners during weekdays, focusing on only eating greens and protien. My goal with this is to build some muscles, build a stronger back & posture (since I carry alot in my work, and POSTURE is everything) and of course perhaps raise my butt a few centimeters and get some booty. I know you guys always ask about my workout routine or how I stay so skinny and in shape, and to be honest Ix27ve always been a yoyo type of person when it comes to excersice, food and finding that motivation- so would you think this would be fun to follow? If i share some tips, before and after shots, recipes and dinner suggestions? COMMENT please! Tumnagel

business cards

I got new business cards made recently- had to update some info and was tired of the size of my previous ones. These ones are extra thick- like cardboard and I have different editorials Ix27ve styled on the front cover and short contact info on the back. I get mine made at Moo, very easy to create your own personalized cards and they ship them out fast. A minus to DHL however that couldnx27t deliver on time. P.S. Ix27ve changed e-mail adress so if you need to contact me please note my new adress is hello(@)isabellehawi.com Tumnagel

le office

Im so greatful that I have an office/studio right in the smack center of town where i can store all my clothes, shoes, accessoaries and more. I dont know what Ix27d done if I didnx27t have this space. After almost 4 years of freelancing as a stylist I can say Ix27ve built up quite a closet/storage. Next plan is to build clothing hangers down from the roof so I can hang each item nicely and orderly. Organization is key! Now back to work- yes on a friday- a lot happening now- starting this fall youx27ll be seeing me on TV. Crazy! Happy Weekend! Tumnagel

time

Hope you all had a good weekend! I had my first day off in over two weeks this saturday, so the blog took a little hiatus. Right now I have a lot going on, which means I wake up at about 6am and work until about 10pm- not many minutes left over in the day. But itx27s all fun of course all though Ix27m starting to feel my stress level building. Im working on a challenging TV project, the webshop and photoshoots inbetween that every day I have free. Last week I had a couple of hours off to visit some press events. Here with Madelene at the Lingerie press day, checking out Hanky Panky, Elle MacPherson, and my favorite Spanx (my best secret when it comes to my job.) Tumnagel

spring

I woke up at 3am, fully rested and ready for a new week. Resulted in a morning job at 5:30, going through my inbox by 5am, and a long breakfast infront of the news. Unfortunately the sun has been unwilling to shine so for this morning, but I do still feel today may be the day to premier my leo loafers for the season. The above from Celine arenx27t bad either.

Early tomorrow morning Ix27m of to Berlin for work. Havenx27t been to Berlin for over 10 years, so looking forward to it, even though ix27ll only be in the city for 36 hours. Alot of walking so comfy shoes is a must! Now - packing. See you in Berlin! P.S. Got any tips on great and amazing secondhand/vintage stores, please let me know, hoping to have an hour or two on sunday before the airport to vintage hunt! I hear Berlin is a great city for thrifting! Tumnagel

MASCULINE IMPRESSION

// Vogue China, January 2013 // Dra mig baklänges vilken snygg styling! Alaister McKimm, han kan. Det här är en look jag skulle kunna kopiera rakt av. Lager på lager, kappa på jacka, byxorna, färgskalan och skorna! Ah... och mina cravings på ett par leopardmönstrade dojjor dom bara växer och växer. Snyggt, snyggt, snyggt. This is a picture that will go straight into my inspiration folder. I think this styling by Alaister McKimmx27s is just amazing. I love everything about it. The trousers, the shoes, the masculinity and simplicity in the look and last but certainly not least, the layer upon layer feeling // coat over jacket. Perfection. Tumnagel

finally ready for life

I fredags tog min praktikperiod hos Pamela Bellafesta slut. Jag har haft världens bästa och lärorika veckor. Det känns som jag fick en knuff i rumpan av livet och kan knappt bärga mig inför studenten då jag verkligen kan få göra det jag älskar. – Yesterday was the last day of my internship with Pamela Bellafesta. I had the best weeks and I have learned a lot. I am feeling pushed and exciting for my graduate when I can work with the things I love. Tumnagel

Last night we had the last lesson for this term of the Stylistcourse. A more chilled lesson, with food, bubbly (Thank you Freixenet!) mingle, laughs and last reflections of the past 12 weeks. Thank you to all my amazing students (now up and coming stylists and colleague!) and thanks for all the gifts! P.S. Todays very confusing news- Alexander Wang at Balenciaga?! Really? Tumnagel

today's insta

Förra veckan började jag min praktik hos Pamela Bellafesta, dock jobbade jag hemifrån så idag var första gången jag fick hänga på det underbara kontoret. Slängde på mig ett par Nike Air Max då returer stod på schemat. Har mycket att göra these days så tyvärr har det inte blivit så mycket update, men lovar outfits snarast möjligt! Nu ska jag träna.

school

I canx27t belive we are almost nearing the end of this term of the stylist course, with only 4 weeks left to go. Itx27s been so much fun to teach, watch these up and coming stylist grow, and focus on teaching out the practical issues of styling. I honestly think that you have to have that litte extra, that sense of style, trends, social manners and etiquette, the rest, how to tie a bowtie or how to manage press loans is something you can learn and part of the practical, you can study and learn fashion history, designers and decades, but that little extra is what is needed to succeed in the business. We are already taking applications for next term and you can apply here, last date for applications if the 17th of decemeber. If you have any questions regarding the course or working as a stylist and getting in the business you can email me at isabelle (at) helenefalksstylistutbildning.se Tumnagel

week 44

This weekend has felt so weird, first time in 9 weeks that I didnx27t head to the studio staurday morning. But Ix27ve compensated with brunch, hangin with friends, saudi dinner party, wine & cheese and palying boule. And of course I got up yesterday and headed to the studio instead. So today feels more like a tuesday rather than monday. This week is going to be crazy, wex27re taping two shows a day, so when the weekend rolls around Ix27m pretty sure Ix27ll be quite knackerx27d. Herex27s a pic from the other night at Atelier with Annie, Ix27ve gotten a lot of questions regarding my blouse, itx27s from Armani. Tumnagel

#lifestyle

This week is by far the most hectic this year for me. With the final week (Ix27ll be in the studio non stop starting tomorrow morning until monday, may as well bring my pillow and blanket there) of the TV production Ix27ve been working on the past 8 weeks, a new production starting next week and school on top of that. Ix27ve really got to time manage every minute of the next coming 10 days, and after that I will be stuck in a studio for 18 hours a day for 8 days in a row. I think itx27s important to have things to look forward to when working in situations like these, and donx27t get me wrong I do love about 99% of every minute that I work, but right now itx27s knowing that Im going to have about 5 days off in November (planning to lock my self in at our country house in the archipelago with good literature, a burning fireplace and copious amounts of tea) and my winter trip to Asia. Ix27ve said it before, but working freelance is rough, being a stylist is in no way glamourous, and you have to prepare to sacrifice family life, your home, and friends for periods of time. If youx27re lucky and have great people around you like I do, itx27s all worthwhile and they will understand, and the perks are of course plentiful. Like a 6 week vacation in Asia. Canx27t f****ing wait! Tumnagel

Got these cute flats from my boss the other day, just because, on a regular Tuesday! Thank you, thank you, canx27t wait to bring them on upcoming trips this winter! Canx27t believe itx27s Thursday already- the weeks are just flying by, but Thursdayx27s are my favorite now days. since it means another stylist class! On todayx27s agenda, a bunch of practical techniques, lessons and day to day scenarios. Tumnagel

campaign

At the Stylist course this evening we have a fashion professor & researcher coming in to talk about fashion campaigns & adverts- what lies behind the choice of location, model, atmosphere, - the piece of clothing in focus etc. Ix27m really looking forward to that. There is so much that lies behind the campaign picture a fashion house chooses to showcase their whole collection with. Ix27m quite curious of YSLx27s new campaign for their name change to Saint Laurent- I canx27t say it captures my attention at all. I would have expected something much more appealing and fetching to launch a new name. P.S. Nu kan du söka till vårterminen av utbildningen! / You can no apply for the spring semester of the Stylist Course- (in swedish only!) Tumnagel

breaking news!

Ok so finally I can share with you my latest project and what Ix27ll be doing this fall. I have signed on to teach at Helene Falkx27s Stylist course. As many of you know this is a course that I, myself attended three years ago and it is something I have been involved with in some way or another every semester since my graduation. I am so excited to have been given the oppertunity to teach the classes in everything regarding styling, from problem solving, trends, interior genres, to celebrity styling, TV productions and much more of course. This is an education that is extremely dear to me, since it got me where I am today. So starting in a couple of weeks, I will be a teacher! - Nu kan jag äntligen berätta vad det är jag kommer pyssla med i höst. Jag har tackat ja till att vara lärare på Helene Falks Stylistutbildning. Detta är något som ligger mig otroligt varmt om hjärtat, då jag själv gick denna utbildning för ett antal år sedan, och det är tack vare utbildning att jag är där jag är i dag i mitt yrke som stylist. Jag är otroligt peppad på detta! Det finns fortfarnde några platser kvar på utbildning som börjar i September. Du kan ansöka här. Har du några frågor eller funderingar kring utbildningen kan du mejla mig på hello(@)isabellehawi.com Tumnagel

projects

Today I have about a thousand practical things to attend to. You know how it is, you put it off, since everyone else is on vacation, offices are closed, the weatherx27s been nice, youx27d rather lie in the grass etc. This fall Ix27m working on two TV productions- one which starts in just 3 weeks. Besides that I have another project that I am super mega excited about, but canx27t speak of just yet. And tomorrow Ix27m finally starting to take care of something thatx27s going to take up alot of my time, which I really should have done about 8 years ago - any guesses? Tumnagel

Tomorrow Ix27m styling a photoshoot all day, so Ix27ve been around showrooms pulling some clothes as well. Ix27ll be spending the day in the studio the whole of tomorrow styling singer Linda Sundblad, which will be crazy fun, so now I have some more preping to do and organizing all the different looks. Herex27s a sneak peak at the rack with some looks from H&M. Tumnagel

sunbeam

I was so organized and grown up yesterday! Took care of the most boring things, like organizing all my receipts for 2011 (time for taxes soon!), can you image how long that took, all of 2011?! Downside of freelancing, is taking care of all the paperwork! Other than that I had a core class, and fixed some other paperwork, as Ix27m finally planning on doing something that I honestly wish Ix27d taken care of years ago, but hey they say itx27s never too late! Soon Ix27m gonna meet a friend for a walk, itx27s so sunny and I absolutely love it, wouldnx27t mind these sunnies from H&M (in store soon!) Tumnagel
