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!”
