Assisting Ayishat Akanbi was fun! going to different shows e.g. an album launch or the Jonathan Ross show or a concert at the hammersmith apollo and helping her style one of her clients e.g. Labrinth, was amazing. Her clients ranged from miss dynamite, union j, cher lloyd to wizkid and JLS. I learnt a lot from her as a assistant, i learnt about how organised a stylist must be, well educated in everything that is going on in the fashion world. I also learnt about how to network and make sure your client is happy. She is very good at what she does and shadowing her was a privilege. The video below is one of my best memories and is a small example of the work i helped her with.
