After graduating from York University of York Jece - one of my recent clients - is now all set to start her money-earning life. Welcome to the grown-up world. So exciting. I'm not being sarcastic. It really is. I remember how exciting it was for me; I felt so proud getting my first job and earning my first salary. Don't get me wrong it is scary, daunting and frustrating at times . This whole process of job application is unnerving but what a feeling when you finally win that first post!
It is no news if I say that prep is the key and when I say prep I mean right left and centre.
Although your look is just one element of your personal branding you can't afford losing in this department. Clothes are the external clues to your personality and Jece, realising that, booked I A.M. the Brand to develop her professional image. She's now applying for PR jobs so would like to present her modern face through sharp and chic, yet, let's not forget - affordable design.
For Jece's wardrobe I therefore chose mostly two brands - Finery London and COS. I will shortly write about the wardrobe we developed but for the time being I would like to show you the transformation Jece underwent in order to step into the job market.
Here are the examples of her new professional image:
I say - yes it does and that's why I chose this brand for Jece. It translates the message she would like to convey through her professional look. Luckily, Jece is a column and these clothes, just like those from most of the high fashion labels nowadays, fit columns like a glove. At first sight cold, reserved, with minimum colour and manly silhouettes Finery clothes have the right amount of feminine pattern and tailoring to create a perfect approachable uniform for a PR recruit. I adored every piece we ordered for Jece and I saw she enjoyed the feel of them. When the clothes seem like your second skin and you want to go out "into the wild" in them straight away - I call it a styling success.
You will notice the lack of accessories which was a fully considered decision - modern minimalism. It's commonly known that the professional environment tolerates the merest presence of jewellery and the more futuristic we get the more that matters.
As always do let me hear your opinions and I'm always just one phone call away if you need any assistance from a stylist.
