Danielle responds: “There are many things that make a good stylist, here are just a few: A “can-do” attitude, confidence, creativity, a visual knowledge of history and fashion; being ahead of the curve and exceptionally well-organised, a good networker with great contacts, a researcher; and lastly, you need access to a magic wand.”
