I am pleased to ublish the fruits of our labour - Dreaming of the Big Ben. Shot by Gwen Janelle Tan and styled by yours truly, this was my first time styling a male model, and also my first time doing a proper photoshoot with an entire team. Producing editorial worthy images is not easy, it usually involves the photography, an assistant, a stylist, a hair and makeup artist and sometimes a creative director.

The look was modeled after British gentlemen - the classic dapper gentlemen, but with a bit of roughness at the edges, that makes them attractive and charming. Patent oxford laceups were replaced by boots, to give him just that bit of rock and roll edge, topped with shades from Carrera to set it off.

The job of a stylist is to source for clothes from various sources and pull together looks based on the creative moodboard provided by the photographer, which gives the artistic direction for the shoot. It is not an easy job, because there are a lot of logistics co-ordination, plus you have to ensure that the clothes (often at exorbitant prices) are returned without any sweat or makeup stains, at original condition. So for those of you who think that fashion is glamourous, think again. There are so many people behind the scenes, working hard to present the audience with a clean, aesthetically pleasing vision - the same as of all creative lines of work.
