Stylists are responsible for the outfit and the appearance of a model at a photo shoot. Stylists must always be up to date with the latest fashion, trends and accessories. Stylists know the complexion and physique of the model; they know what looks best on them and in what light. Stylists also take care of the whole stage set. The stylists always co-ordinate a model’s outfit from choosing the right trousers to the right accessories. The stylists also know how to correct small problem areas.

Stylists can also work as professional consultants in outfit and style, outside of their work in film, TV and the model business. Stylists are often used for fashion shows. This is where they perfectly style the model in the client’s chosen products to be presented at a show.
