Ending my internship at the Crystal Agency was very bittersweet. However, I have been so lucky to be given the chance to continue writing for the blog. I’m very
fortunate, because it is assisting me in the growth of my relationships with the artists, considering I’m an aspiring fashion stylist myself.
Recently, fashion stylist Hollie Williamson invited me to work on a test shoot with her a few weeks ago. I’m so grateful for her generosity and wisdom she has provided me. It is hard to stumble across people like Hollie who make it seem like your not alone in this unpredictable and tough business. Her advice has been invaluable. Here’s a recent e-mail she sent me that is quite inspiring:
“…I told you before; I started being a stylist with one single contact. Every time I had a question, I called her and she responded immediately. If it weren't for her, I would not have made it. To this day, I know I could call her if I didn't know how to do something. I mean, I got an assistant job one time and the stylist asked me to come in early to tape shoes. Of course I said, "Yes, no problem!" Then I called Cassie to see what that meant!! She literally talked me through many jobs step by step. She was/is my lifeline. You totally have that in me, and I'm sure the other girls. Don't EVER be shy to use it.”
