Preparing for a Photo Shoot Run-Through

Being a Fashion Merchandising student has prepared me with many skills that coincide with the duties I have at Moda Operandi.

Prior to every photo shoot I am responsible for making sure the samples are merchandised neatly for the editor’s run-through. During the run-through process, the fashion editor goes through the clothing options that are available and creates outfits. It’s a fun process to observe and assist with. You are able to express your creativity. This part of my job would be appealing to those who are interested in becoming a stylist.

After the looks are put together, we then try them on our fit model to see if we need to make any adjustments or add any pieces to complete the look.
