This season we sat down with South Australian fashion stylist, Cimon Vozzo to learn more about her days as a stylist, favourite designers, must have wardrobe essentials and more.

My style is…?

“Relaxed! Most days you’ll find me in a t-shirt, low crotch jeans and sneakers. Who said comfortable can’t be stylish?” 

On a night out, I’d wear…?

“A statement top with a beautiful cut and gorgeous fabric, paired with a skirt and topped off with heels (always!)”  

Favourite Australian designer…?

“I’m always crushing on Maticevski! He is a visionary and you can spot his designs miles away… I love how he can make a simple skirt appear so striking!

Latest fashion purchase…?

“A gorgeous YSL clutch when I was on my travels in NYC”  (Available at Muse Boutique)

Denim or leather…?

“That is a hard one but, it’s denim for me!” 

I never leave the house without…?

“My phone (obviously) and a statement head scarf – at the moment I have around twenty different scarfs! 

How did you get into styling?

“Styling is something I always wanted to do throughout high school, but when I expressed this to people, they just didn’t get it! I would say ‘not a fashion designer, but someone who dresses people.’ Nowadays, we understand that stylists aren’t just for celebrities. I started off by completing work experience with prominent stylists in Adelaide and worked my way up from there. Styling is one of those careers – you either have it or you don’t! My advice to aspiring stylists would be to be persistent – I have had my fair share of ups and downs with styling as it is such a niche market in Adelaide but persistence is key!”

What does a work day look like for you?

Whether it is catching up on emails, collecting stock from stores, styling for an editorial piece, on location for a photoshoot or personally styling clients – every day is different and that’s why I love my job!”

Who are your favourite traders on King William Road?

“I love Denim Iniquity, Wild Child Style Lab, Miss Martini and more! All the stores have their own unique quirk!”

What are your top 3 tips for those shopping for their winter wardrobes?

  1. “Look for styles to suit – make sure your coat length and colours suit your skin colouring
  2. Be on trend but in your own unique way! Incorporate your favourite touches of various trends to your everyday wardrobe to create a personalised look
  3. Invest in good quality pieces – trust me, it will benefit you in the long run!”
