This year, we saw a lot of celebrity transformations, noteworthy editorials, striking ads, and laudable fashion shows. So it is only fitting that we recognize the creative minds behind these fashion feats. Being a stylist may seem like a glamorous job but know that the pressure, late nights, legwork, and overall hard work put into the craft are just as much as any other job out there.
Below, a list of stylistas who made an impact this year.
The StyLIZed team
Main muse this 2015: Maine Mendoza
Liz Uy may not be styling as many editorials with Preview anymore but her team, StyLIZed is still quite in-demand. When they’re not precoccupied with shooting endorsements for big brands, or campaigns for fast fashion favorites, they're busy with styling this year’s breakout star, Maine Mendoza. Issues aside, we can see this working relationship pushing through in the years to come.
Main muse this 2015: Janine Gutierrez
From magazine covers, Bench billboards dotted along EDSA, and book covers to editorials, fashion shows, and styling her friend/client Janine Gutierrez, this Preview alum is making us mighty proud. Remember her name, we're sure 2016 will be even bigger for her.
KIM AND BOOP YAP
Main muse this 2015: Kathryn Bernardo
The accomplishments of sisters Boop and Kim has helped establish their spot in the industry, but this 2015, they solidified it, especially after bagging Kathryn as a client. She's just one of the many on their long list of celeb clientele, which also include Kris Aquino and Kim Chiu.
REX ATIENZA of Stylelist, Inc.
Main muse this 2015: Alden Richards
Someone has to be responsible for dressing the leading men, too! Aside from the ever-hip John Lloyd Cruz, Rex, along with the rest of the Stylelist, Inc. team, is responsible for the dapper looks of breakout star Alden Richards and heartthrob Matteo Guidicelli to name a few. He's also the man behind the noteworthy ensembles of Bea Alonzo and Maja Salvador.
CATH SOBREVEGA AND MAITA BAELLO of Qurator Studio
Main muse this 2015: Anne Curtis
Young blood runs this list. After gaining valuable experience under Pam Quiñones' wing, Cath and Maita are now heading Qurator Studio, styling a number of personalities from Anne Curtis and Jasmine Curtis Smith to Nadine Lustre and Kim Chiu.
Main muse this 2015: Coleen Garcia
If you've been paying attention to Coleen Garcia, this year, she didn't only chop her hair off and come into her own, but she also got a style makeover. Adrianne was responsible for this change, as well as for the consistent double-tap worthy looks of Megan Young and Maxene Magalona.
Main muse this 2015: Liza Soberano
We're slowly seeing an evolution in the style of Liza Soberano and we're loving it. As she's nearing her coming of age, we're sure her stylist, Perry, will be with her every step of the way. Exciting!
