About me
My name is Rodier Bondonga and I am an approchable, highly driven & trust worthy individual who understands the importance of hard work. I am a courteous fashion stylist with a sharp eye for detail, trained through 6+ years of experience in high-traffic luxury fashion boutiques and head office. A wide base of experience, from assisting in choosing, styling, and a record of multiple satisfied new and old clients from personal styling. As well as editorial styling and providing fast makeovers in a high-traffic location. Regularly publishing content on my own portfolio and Instagram, which is followed by customers and interested industry people. A portfolio amounting to 15 successful editorial photoshoots, magazine features and 1 exceptional video. Looking to leverage skills in dealing with studio styling. Collaborated with various photographers and designers to achieve a successful photoshoot and featured in a few magazines. I’m also fluent in French. My experiences within the fashion & customer care field has equipped me with plenty skills such as being able to have a high taste when it comes to fashion & always staying on trend as well as mixing vintage styles to suit my customers needs. It has also taught me the importance of studying & understanding my customers needs. I have also been able to grasp how to articulate myself in a professional manner to help my high end & regular customers feel comfortable. Fashion has always been a huge passion of mine since I was a little child as I am a daughter of a tailor. So I am highly trained with knowledge when it comes to it. I would love the opportunity to thrive further within the fashion world as it would be my dream come true to be a studio stylist. Being able to be creative & bring my vision to life will be a dream come true.
