I believe it's my naivety. I am a true believer that it is good for every person, and that is for I look for every time I meet someone new. I don't like seeing the wrong side of things.
Delia, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Fashion Stylist?
It started in high school. I was never one of the "top hot girls" in my school, so I had to be different in my way. Not too many people understood my style for a long time, but I followed my intuition, and it brought me here - in London - where I belong.
Who is your inspiration in life Delia? How do you keep inspired?
Everything that surrounds I inspire me. People, cities, stores, stories, cars, animals - everything. I don't think I have a role model, but I know I want to be at least as happy as my parents are when I grow up - after all, they did make me, which turned out to be a pretty amazing thing!
We all make mistakes Delia; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Fashion Stylist; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
I think the biggest mistake you can make as a Fashion Stylist is to try to impose your style on someone else. You need to understand that everyone has to express their personality, so imposing your style on someone else, it's like you are making them be you - which is wrong on so many levels. We have to accept people around us as they are.
Delia, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Fashion Stylist, how do you go about prioritising your clients’ needs?
Since I specialised in business and marketing, and have worked in big multinationals before, time management, project management and prioritisation of tasks are some strong skills that I developed. You have to take it step by step and plan every minute of your day. Otherwise, failure is just around the corner. Attention to detail - very important! And careful never to crack under pressure!
Please tell us, Delia, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Fashion Stylist?
I think we involve strategy in whatever we do. Imagine this: when you're making yourself a sandwich, do you just randomly top the bread with whatever you want, or do you do it in a certain way, that it would make sense when you eat it? First, it's smashed avocado, and then you put the egg/salmon on, so it sticks...
Delia, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
The art of persuasion is one of the most challenging lessons I ever had to learn. I am very kind, so it doesn't necessarily come naturally to me to be assertive in some situations. But with solid arguments, you can do anything.
Delia, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Fashion Stylist. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
I think that would be the moment when I had to style my outfits for my prime time appearances on The Voice!
Delia, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
As a Fashion Stylist, you get to be creative with your work every day!
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Fashion Stylist?
Don't give up on your vision, even if people around you don't approve of it! If you are convinced you are doing the right thing, follow your intuition!
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
YES! I would love to collaborate with other bloggers, or brands, and get involved in Visual Merchandising as well!
