They will answering a few of our fashion Q&As as well as  picking their 6 favourite items from Girl Meets Dress…We hope you enjoy!

Today we’re picking the mind of  Natalie Robinson. Natalie is a fashion consultant and  founder of Style Icon, She  has collaborated on projects with big names such as  London Fashion Weekend and the Clothes Show Live to name a few.  Natalie also teaches an ‘Introduction to Personal Styling’ course at the Fashion Retail Academy in Central London and has been sponsored by British Airways to be a keynote speaker at their Office*exhibition. Natalie’s 15 years of experience, countless celebrity connections and solid work ethic have propelled her career into the success it is today.

Natalie answered a few of our questions:

- How would you describe your style?
Classic with a contemporary twist! I love mixing classic and vintage pieces! I like to play with style as opposed to follow trends! I am an interpreter of fashion!

- What are your fashion loves, and your hates?
Fashion loves – hats, and other accessories like broaches, necklaces, funky gloves and I love faux fur which ‘glams up’ an outfit. I hate trying too hard with fashion i.e. dressing head to toe in the same designer or wearing a piece just because it’s the latest trend. I have to love the designer but most importantly the fit of a particular piece and how it compliments the rest of what I am wearing.

- What’s the most loved item in your wardrobe?
My Biba Hat. I always receive compliments when I wear it!

- What advice would you have for anyone wanting to get into styling?
Love what you do!! Pay particular attention to detail! I run a 3 day styling course at The Fashion Retail Academy in Central London! You need a sense of individual style to appreciate how to style others!

- Where do you get your inspiration from?
Watching old movies, music videos and street style as I often pay attention to how other people dress which gives me more ideas for styling.

- Name one item no stylist should be without?
Needle & Thread. You always need to make minor alterations!!

- What is your favourite SS14 trend?
Would have to be tartan in the form of accessories! Also, loving the phantom Celine bag in more summery colours!!

 

Here are some of Natalie’s picks from GirlMeetsDress.com

Now for the Q&As!

- How would you describe your style?

I am a chameleon! I like quirky vintage granny style and on other days I’m all about the tomboy on others preppy! I also have an addiction to leather trousers, so am a lover of the rock chick look when the feeling takes me! It all depends on my mood or the weather!

- What are your fashion loves, and your hates?

Massive hate is trodden down jeans at the back, and coats which have lost their belts and people who are anal about matching their socks! Loves are handbags- the bigger and brasher the better! And I’m a big fan of a bonnet.

- What’s the most loved item in your wardrobe?

Any of my six pairs of leather trousers! Or my No 23 American Football top and my tie dye Prada dress- my failsafe smart day to night frock….

- What advice would you have for anyone wanting to get into styling?

Start testing with other creatives, assist an established stylist in the field you want to get in to, and be prepared for a lot of running about doing returns!

- Where do you get your inspiration from?

Social media- Twitter, blogs, Pintrest and street style. Obviously when I see the shows at London and international fashion weeks I get inspired-  that is where I get excited for my shoot ideas.

- Name one item no stylist should be without?

Bulldog clips!

- What is your favourite SS14 trend?

The 80s! As seen on Balmain, St Laurent and Lanvin.
