Fashion styling and Image Consulting is still a very new concept in South Africa: Many rely on their friends and family to be honest when they ask "Does my bum look big in this?". It's a interesting industry to be in though: you become a friend, a psychologist and an agony aunt: you hear about how their husband pissed them off, or how their children keep stepping out of line. Once South Africans cotton on to the idea that a Fashion Stylist is not a judgemental fashion-slave, but someone who is genuinely interested in helping people hone their style, I think this industry will take off. But I'm in this for the long haul - what better job is there than to get paid to shop and talk crap?
