Fashion Stylists, they just keep getting younger, if you work in the fashion industry for a decade its bound to happen. Particularly when you work as a fashion photographer. The fashion industry as a whole has a rapid turnover. Models nearly always in a very set age range, and the trend is always young and current. But a few weeks ago I felt particularly old, mostly because the stylist I was working with was all of 7 years old… We all remember Tavi Gevinson who started Style Rookie back in 2008 when she was only 12 years old, in case you are wondering, she is the editor of Rookie now, It is wonderful to see the next generation diving in head first so early.
We filmed a segment for the Marilyn Dennis Show called Big Little Experts with the budding stylist Afrodite and a good friend and seasoned pro Peter Papapetrou. Afrodite has a passion unlike any other, she is a well-spoken and enthusiastic little stylist in the making. She will certainly be one to watch for in the industry for years to come.
Here are a few photos from the shoot and the segment!
