My name is Natalia Kondo- Szypulska and I work under a name Natalia Paku Sukuda. I am a London-based fashion stylist and creative director who recently came back to London from Asia to focus on both markets. I am experienced in every aspect of creating fashioned images and looks: pre-production, styling and direction. This experience is supported by work in industries in such countries like Japan, China and of course Great Britain, where through professionalism and ability to create and keep good working relationships resulted in my growing position as a stylist and creative director. During my 5 years of image production and styling work I have a great experience in clothes researching and pulling, preparation of mood boards, session planning, location scouting, ticket booking, bus/car/location bookings, budget management, negotiations, team selections and bookings, consultation with the client in creating and following a brief, model casting and as well working with top models in the industry. I produced and help producing commercial and editorial photo shoots in cities like Tokyo, Beijing, Shanghai, London, Paris, Prague and Warsaw. Currently and in the past I have been working with many international publications as a freelance stylist, creative director of the photoshoot and producer, South China Morning Post Style (Hong Kong), Tatler (Asian Editions), L’Officiel (Greece, Ukraine, Mexico, Malaysia), Harper‘s Bazaar (China, Poland, Argentina, Serbia), Marie Claire (China), Men’s Health (China), Scandinavia S / S / A / W (Sweden), Schon!
