Styling is the art of adding value to fashion, interpreting it to create stories. We are all our own stylists in the morning when we get dressed. With this book we discover its origins, techniques, creative processes told by the most influential Italian stylist and a great fashion expert. Everyone talks about it, but few know what they are doing, many confuse them with stylists. Yet stylists, once known only to professionals, have become one of the most important figures in understanding how the fashion planet works. As stylists design clothes, stylists play with combinations, build an imaginary from the creations of fashion designers and remix, transform, launch messages and create trends. This is the first book that fully describes the art of telling yourself without words through clothes and accessories, to choose the one that makes us feel good and look our best. Of all the professions related to fashion, that of the stylist escapes any clear definition, although to practice it requires accuracy, depth, clarity of views. Every time we try to explain it we encounter prejudices, misunderstandings, questioning looks. Because stylists live in a middle ground: they move on the path that separates the aesthetic universe of the creative person from that of those who will wear the clothes, in the space that opens up between the representation of the world and our own. Clothing is only the beginning of a story, and interpreting it according to a specific style, in light of the individual’s personality, is another matter. Because clothes can talk about us and the world, and it’s no coincidence that in recent years fashion has become the bearer of requests and messages of activism that often go beyond the simple product. And it is the job of the stylist to express the zeitgeist by rejecting it on the basis of individuality and capturing suggestions from art, culture, music. Summary of the history of fashion and a story of life and experience, manual and essay at the same time, this book collects the secrets and creative strategies necessary to find your own style and communicate ourselves through the wonderful world of clothing.
