Our readers would love to get to know you more VERONICA. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?

We all make mistakes VERONICA; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about a time being a Fashion Stylist, you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
I scheduled a girl of mine for a job she didn't really want after realizing the travel time even though she committed to it far in advance. I got upset and expressed it via a text message. I feel it was more of a telephone call type of conversation we needed to have versus texting and I do wish I could have handled that differently and actually spoken to her. Things get misconstrued when texting.
VERONICA , 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 prioritizing your clients’ needs?
I have staffed help so that my time and the clients are respected. I think that was the best thing I have done is enlist great stylist to help me get the jobs were done that are just as professional and reliable as I am to clients.
Please tell us VERONICA, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Fashion Stylist?
When I started my business, it was a mix of juggling my time appropriately to not take time from being and artist and business owner for granted. I had to really tackle down business needs and make time for that to expand and build my clientele. At times all I want to do is be the artist and work, but someone has to be the business woman and even though it's not my favourite thing to do it's something I have learned to prioritize.
VERONICA, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
I like to put myself in other people's shoes and also try to see their vision so before feeling the need to persuade I do take in and put myself in their mind set. Once I feel I am grasping their desired look, I do add in my own twist on things and have them maybe amp up the idea making it something that will work with what their own vision is so that we can come together to obtain a unique and personalized look.
VERONICA, 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 just want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
Our feature in Wedding mag Coastal Bride was one of our most recent accomplishments and I'm very proud every I'm able to get featured.
VERONICA, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
Inspiration is not something you get 100% of the time, and sometimes it gets hard to pull inspiration when you are having a long day. I had one of my most recent editorial shoots that took almost 10 hours by the end of the day the last look was the most colourful and dynamic, but I was beaten. I'm very proud though, and the pictures and models all looked beautiful and as of right now has been one of my favourite shoots yet.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Fashion Stylist?
Keep at it. Stay consistent and see beauty where others may not.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?
