I am sure that when you hear of fashion stylist you think celebrities, but a position as a stylist is not limited to the world of entertainment. In the private sector, they can work for politicians or private clients for events.

WHAT DO THEY DO & HOW DO THEY DO IT?
A fashion stylist must have an eye for detail, color & be aware of bodily proportions. They must keep up with the latest trends to keep clients looking stylish. This requires developing professional relationships with designers, clothing boutiques, merchandisers and the PR teams of fashion brands to have access to clothing. If the client is famous, many brands will loan clothing to stylists in exchange for a client photo-op to increase their brand's exposure.
