After delving more into her page i realized she and I had very similar interests : FASHION FASHION FASHION!!! I took a look at her blog spot and was amazed at what I saw; posts about the newest art, fashion, and music. (Please check it out at MScottStyle.blogspot.com) Well being the communication saavy lady i am :) I HAD to contact her for an interview about her job, personal style and a few tips on how to succeed in the fashion world...

 

What does your career as a fashion stylist involve?

INCLUDES BUT NOT LIMITED TO IMAGE DEVELOPMENT, BUDGET SHOPPING, MOOD/INSPIRATION  BOARDS, BUILDING AND PERSERVING RELATIONSHIPS WITH STORES, LABELS, ARTIST MANAGEMENT, RECORD LABELS AND FASHION DESIGNERS, KNOWING LATEST FASHION TRENDS AND HOTTEST EVENTS, KNOWING WHAT LOOKS GOOD ON EVERY BODY TYPE, LEAVING YOUR CLIENT HAPPY AND SECURE.

 

How do you keep in touch with the latest fashions?

I GO TO DIFFERENT SITES AND READ NUMEROUS MAGAZINES BUT I DON'T REALLY KEEP UP WITH LATEST FASHIONS AS MUCH AS I START TRENDS BY SHOPPING AT VINTAGE AND CONSIGNMENT STORES AND ADDING MY TWIST TO THINGS TO FIT CLIENT OR MY PERSONAL PREFRENCE FOR MYSELF.

What hours do you work?

HOURS CAN GET CRAZY....SOME DAYS ARE CRAZIER THAN OTHERS DEPENDING ON THE JOB. IT CAN RANGE FROM 3HRS TO 16HRS. DAYS GO BY SO FAST BECAUSE THIS IS WHAT I LOVE.....THIS IS WHAT I ASKED FOR AND I'M NOT EVEN KNEE DEEP IN THE GAME YET!

Who do you work with?

I HAVE ASSISTED MAINLY WITH RIHANNA FROM THE BEGINNING TO NOW. MY WORK IS NOT LIMITED TO ONE ASPECT OF THE INDUSTRY. I WORK ON VIDEOS, RED CARPET, PHOTOSHOOTS, AWARD SHOWS, PERFORMANCES, COMMERCIALS, MOVIES, PERSONAL, ETC...

 

How did you train for your career as a fashion stylist?

TRAINING COMES WITH ALREADY KNOWING WHAT TO DO! YOU GAIN EXPERIENCE BY WORKING WITH OTHER PROMINENT STYLIST IN THE GAME. THE PROBLEM IS THAT EVERYBODY WANTS TO BE AND THINKS THEY CAN BE ONE JUST BECAUSE THEY HAVE STYLE OR THEY LIKE FASHION. THAT'S WHY THERE ARE "TOO MANY CELEBRITIES AND NOT ENOUGH STARS"-MONIQUE SCOTT I STARTED WORKING WITH LYSA COOPER STRAIGHT OUT OF COLLEGE AND BRANCHED OFF TO BUILD MY NAME AND CLIENTELE.

CHAOTIC AND FAST PACED

KNOWLEDGE, CREATIVITY, IMAGINATION, INDIVIDUALITY, CONFIDENCE, MOTIVATION AND A VISION

What made you choose your career as a fashion stylist?

FASHION HAS ALWAYS BEEN MY PASSION! BUT THIS CAREER CHOOSE ME....ITS TIME FOR NEWNESS AND INDIVIDUALITY TO BOMBARD THE DOORS OF FASHION AND SPREAD AROUND THE WORLD BY MORE THAN JUST A FEW ARTIST IN THE ENTERTAINMENT WORLD.

Your route to a career as a fashion stylist

I AM CONSTANTLY BUILDING AND NETWORKING! THE GRIND NEVER ENDS IT JUST ROLLS OVER TO THE NEXT DAY.
