The stylist works as part of the world of fashion communication, with the responsibility of choosing and putting together pieces to present a brand or fashion company's collection. In addition, the stylist selects current themes in fashion as the subject for magazine shoots. A fashion stylist can be considered a visual journalist or commentator, the link that joins the world of clothing manufacture with consumers and the readership of fashion magazines. The stylist's ability to interpret trends and current tastes makes them one of the principal creators of fashion and style. In their professional lives, stylists develop strong ongoing working relationships with photographers, with whom they collaborate closely, channelling their concept of fashion and aesthetics through the photographic shoot.
