KIEREN KANDA | FASHION WRITER / STYLIST
Welcome to Style by Kieren. I created this space when I was 17 as a personal journal for outfits as I have an immense passion for styling. Style by Kieren is organised into six distinct categories. Fashion, Fitness, Food, Grooming, Products & Travel. Some other things that you’ll be seeing produced from me apart from fashion are based on my interests in veganism, fitness, sustainability, my love for travel and overall well-being. I currently attend the University of the Arts London, London College of Fashion where I’m studying an integrated Masters degree – (MA) Fashion Media Practice and Criticism. Previous to my degree, I have worked at Gulf News Magazines, WEST L.A. Boutique and British GQ Magazine. I hope you enjoy this adventure with me as much as I am, and always feel free to get in touch below.
Recognising individuals style and aiding in amplifying that with my own creativity and insight into the Fashion industry is something I pride myself upon. With my knowledge of strongly-established and emerging designers, both local to the U.K and U.A.E, I guarantee to recognise the importance of my clients desires and demands. I make certain to convey my powerful sense of style, apprehension of brands and seasonal trends where appropriate all whilst remaining conscious of my clients body type, personality and budget in order to allow the most amicable outcome in all style services. With my rigorous training in styling, diverse experience in various corporations such as Gulf News Magazines, WEST L.A. Boutique and British GQ Magazine, I ensure to consistently implement my cognisance of brands, exactness to detail and augment an understanding of my client to achieve a more-than-satisfactory outcome.
Once you’ve decided which service you require, a free consultation will be arranged on my behalf. This will be composed of a few questions either via email, video-chat or in person, depending on what you’re most comfortable with and whichever service you require.
CLOSET TRANSFORMATION: Re-invent your closet, without the need to re-purchase all of your clothes. I will assist in separating un-needed items that are in need of abandoning and indicate the must-keep items, whilst guiding you in learning how they can be worn in a wide range of looks. Your closet will be left refreshed and stylised.
PHOTO-SHOOTS: I’ve had much experience with styling for an array of shoots, whether it’s for an advertorial, still life or street-style. Given notice and sizes are necessary for me to organise looks accordingly.
PERSONAL SHOPPING: Once our consultation is complete, I will accompany you on for assisted shopping, where I will advise you on cuts, shapes and fabrics of garments and assist you in achieving your desired style in more than one look. If you’re not available for a physical shopping trip, assisted online shopping is available. I will collate shopping pages, similar to magazines where each item will have a link attached to it, the price readily available for your consideration and all items fitting into your budget, including shipping fees. The shopping experience will end depending on the amount of hours required to obtain all satisfactory products and outfits. Whereas with my online personal-shopping experience, I will continue to liaise with you via email until your are content with the outcome.
SPECIFIC ITEMS: This service allows you to communicate with me regarding any specific item you desire to find. I will either find the item for you and provide you with a method of obtaining it or pinpoint similar items whether it is no longer available or you would prefer something aesthetically interchangeable to the item. This service requires no charge.
My rates are adaptable depending on which service you require and the amount of time necessary to complete the service.
