Meet North Hollywood Wardrobe Stylist: Geraldine “Gigi” Fernandez

Today we’d like to introduce you to Geraldine “Gigi” Fernandez.

Geraldine “Gigi”, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I got my foot in the door by interning at a showroom in DTLA when i first moved to California about 5 years ago. Stylists would always come in to pull wardrobe and i would assist them with there pulls. Many of the stylists took a liking to me and would ask if I’m able to assist them on jobs and of course i said yes. From there i started assisting multiple stylists and learning all the ins and outs of the industry, everything took off from there!

Has it been a smooth road?
Definitely hasn’t been a smooth road! lol This isn’t a glamorous industry as many think, its a lot of hard work and extremely long hours. You have to live and breathe it, its not a set 9-5 job where you can just clock out. In the beginning a lot of free work is involved which could become frustrating but its the only way to really get your foot in the door and get yourself out there, its worth it and honestly the ONLY way to make it in this industry. Interning and assisting is vital.

Have you ever wanted to stop doing what you do and just start over?
Not necessarily quitting, but definitely some tough times. Like i stated before starting off in this industry is tough there’s ALOT of free work involved and being over worked and underpaid in the beginning is very common, but hard work never goes unnoticed! So that was definitely something i overcame.

Let’s change gears – is there any advice you’d like to give?
ASSIST ASSIST ASSIST and be patient, trust in your timing.

What are you looking forward to?
For “Styled By Gigi” to grow and continue to get bigger and better.
