Hi, I’m Joanna Garcia, 28 year old celebrity fashion stylist from sunny Manila, Philippines. I’ve been styling for more that eight years and I would really say that I love and enjoy what I’ve chosen to do. Aside from fashion, I love yoga, painting and cooking during my spare time!
Where do you get your fashion inspiration from?
I get my fashion inspiration from everywhere. People I meet, my travels, social media, different artists I’ve come to work with, the list goes on and on. I’m always finding ways to be inspired everyday — this is how I keep the creativity flowing.
Are there any items in your wardrobe you can’t live without?
I cannot leave without a white button-down shirt, good fitting pair of jeans and my very comfy and trusty Chanel ballerina flats. I’m a basics kinda gal, as long as it’s chic and it fits very well, I’m good to go.
How will you describe a typical day like for yourself?
I wake up around 8am, do a short meditation, diffuse my energizing essential oils (this was truly life changing for me, haha) then start my day with breakfast while checking my e-mails. Most days I would attend shoots, meetings, events or style campaigns, other days you would often see me in the mall sourcing looks for my celebrity clients.
Is there a food or drink you never take?
I’m not really a picky eater but I don’t like Bitter Melon and I’m not very fond of tomatoes!
What have you always wanted to do or learn but have yet to find the time for it?
I’ve been meaning to go back to London and take short courses in Central Saint Martins in cool hunting and advanced fashion styling but schedules always get in the way, I would love to do probably this year or next, as they say, Education is the best investment you can give yourself. I believe this will also allow me to hone my skills better to become a better stylist.
If you could time travel, where will you go and like to experience or witness?
Wish I’d live in the 70s! The music, the parties, and the fashion.
What turns you off on a date?
A guy that is too arrogant or full of himself.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Joanna. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Sexy is being comfortable in your own skin, not being afraid to show who you really are 🙂
