Formerly the Fashion Editor at InStyle UK, Robyn now focuses all her attention on her work as a freelance stylist and editor. For Spring/Summer 2017, she layers oversized Hunter Original pieces for a relaxed look.
Why fashion – what inspired you to become a stylist and Editor?
I always knew I wanted to work for a magazine, I love the shoots, stories and creative content. Once I started my art foundation at Chelsea College of Art and Design, that it was it, fashion came so easily. I love creating stories, producing visual content and learning about new brands and designers and how they shift style today.
How would you describe your signature look?
Relaxed and classic, with tom boy tailoring
What aspect of your work are you most passionate about?
Working with an amazing team. When everything fits, the shoots are beyond effortless and result in a very fun day. I love editing too - putting together the final story.
How has the growth of social media and online content impacted your work?
I now appreciate the sense of quality print has more than ever before. Online is so fast and often unedited so I like to make sure that my work still has that print feel. Each image must represent a sense of power, confidence and luxury. It's important to create something new and exciting to cut through the noise.
Do the choices you make in your work as a stylist inspire your personal style, or vice versa?
Very much so, I often style how I'd love to dress.
Where do you go when you need inspiration for your work?
Exhibitions and travel are my main source of inspiration. I also look to creative agencies and check out their artist portfolios, whether that be photographers or illustrators.
How did you go about styling your look for today’s shoot?
A relaxed, layered look with oversize pieces. A pinstripe wide-leg trouser looks great with trainers - always invest in amazing coloured socks.
