FAULT Focus: Stylist Marika Page

MARIKA-SHOT-1-RETOUCHED (Medium)

FAULT Stylist Marika Page shot by Andrew Hiles

Stylists are, without a doubt, the unsung heroes of the fashion world.  Pulling together seemingly incongruous pieces from the constant influx provided by high end and up-and-coming designers can be a daunting task – and that’s without taking into account the often difficult celebrity shoots!  Freelance stylist Marika Page is undoubtedly one of the most exciting young talents on FAULT‘s editorial team, and was recently recognised with a place as runner-up in Rankin’s national styling contest.  With that in mind, we thought we’d try and get an insight into her history and what makes her tick…

Marika Page styled Daisy Lowe for the FAULT Issue 14 front and Beauty section cover

FAULT: How did you first get involved in styling?

Marika: I had a career in law, but wanted a change and was reading a lot of fashion blogs.  One of them had an advert for a styling course describing the attributes of a stylist. I thought, “Hey, that’s me!”.  It was a powerful revelation, as I’d never considered styling as a career.  But my instincts were right and I’ve never looked back.

3

What made you decide to enter the Rankin styling contest?

I was excited when I saw the competition advertised, as I love Rankin’s work, and The Hunger Magazine.  I’m proud of my work but was intrigued to know how it rated against other stylists in the industry.  I’m grateful to Rankin, his wife Tuuli, and On/Off for holding the competition – as far as I know, it’s the first of it’s kind for stylists.  And of course being featured on Hunger TV was a great platform to gain exposure to a wider audience.

Who or what are your main inspirations?

It depends on who my clients are.  For celebrities or musicians, I take inspiration from their personalities or music to get a feel for their tastes and what direction they could go in to enhance their visual image.  The designers’ collections themselves are also a wonderful source of inspiration.  When working for a magazine, I am inspired by collections that reflect the tone of the publication and its desired affiliations.  For personal styling, I ask my clients some questions, to get a sense of what styles they would like.  The inspirations have come from them – I just help to channel them.

Louis Roe for FAULT Issue 12 (styling by Marika Page)

Would you say your styling work is a reflection of your personal style?

I’m versatile as a stylist and because of that, not all my work is reflective of my personal style.  I style to fit the brief – which at times is determined by the photographer or magazine.  But where I’ve initiated a shoot myself you can see my styling preference throughout, as I’ve chosen the concept, team, location, as well as designers.  For instance, Louise Roe for FAULT Issue 12 and my last editorial for Essential Homme Magazine, March/April ’13.  As for what I wear – at the moment I have a passion for vintage dresses (seemingly all kinds!).

 

What do you look for in the people you collaborate with?

I prefer to work with people who are talented, as well as friendly and professional.  I like to know that the team trust me with the styling, as I trust them in their roles.  I’m looking to collaborate with photographers, designers and stores who are producing campaigns, as that’s a field I’m currently moving into.  I’d also like to collaborate with key title publications to style freelance for their promotions pages.

Who would be your dream person to style and why?

Cara Delevingne, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Nicholas Hoult – all great talent and British ambassadors.  Grace Jones would be the ultimate (not that she needs a stylist!).

 

Which designers would you say are “ones-to-watch” for the future?

Agi & Sam, in particular, have this ‘wow’ factor – I featured their amazing prints in a menswear editorial last year.  The magazine gave us the cover too – it was my first cover, so I was thrilled!

 

Many people would argue that styling for editorials is an art form. Would you agree?

Definitely, although unlike other visual art, it’s a collaborative effort.  The role of a stylist is similar to that of a DJ in the sense that you ‘mix’ the work of other artists – the designers, to produce a new, more stimulating interpretation.  An editorial doesn’t demand too much of an audience’s time yet has the power to captivate, surprise and delight within a few seconds.   Curating the designers and mixing trends, especially ones that seemingly don’t go well together, is a highly skilled task – whilst people often believe it’s all fallen into place ‘naturally’ rather than styled.  This is an art!

Marika also styled Grizzly Bear for FAULT Issue 12

Do you feel that having a good sense of style is important in life?

Of course – although style goes beyond fashion, and is about expressing your personality.  Developing your own style with or without a stylist’s help, is worthwhile because when you express yourself in your desired light, you feel great and attract the right people towards you.  I guess it’s a kind of personal ‘branding’ (which I mean in a positive way!).

 

What has been your most memorable shoot thus far in your career?

Daisy Lowe for FAULT Magazine, Spring, Issue 14 – she was simply breathtaking!  I’ve wanted to style her for a while so I was really excited.  Daisy is an incredible model and her exclusive interview, including her comments on women and body image, is wonderful.  This issue of FAULT is the best I’ve ever seen – ‘must have’ Spring reading!

 

What is your FAULT?

Sometimes I wish I could plan better, and that my days resembled some sort of routine!

Daisy Lowe: Behind the Scenes for FAULT Issue 14

Music: ‘Slow Burning Bliss’ by Dead Times

From Vogue to Playboy and from Chanel to Agent Provocateur, it seems that there isn’t a magazine cover or fashion campaign in the world that has not, at one time or another, featured the remarkable Daisy Lowe. She is, arguably, as close to a genuine supermodel as this decade has ever truly known. Up until now, at least, with Cara Delevigne currently enjoying the fickle focus of the fashion world.  Daisy’s enduring popularity, however, makes the majority of today’s ‘bright young things’ seem as transient as sunshine during a British Spring. Still only 24, the plain-spoken North Londoner can already boast a CV to match the best there has ever been. What’s more, she can still claim to be at the very top of her game, as recent work for the likes of Stephen Webster and Tommy Hilfiger attests.

FAULT: What has been your favourite experience so far?

Daisy: Working with Pat McGrath for the first time was an amazing milestone, as was shooting Italian Vogue with Steven Klein. He is such a genius with a complete heart of gold. I was 17 when I first started shooting with him and he really made me feel very comfortable in my own skin and celebrated my curves.

Walking for Vivienne Westwood for the first time was massive too. It was her first show back in London after years of being in Paris. She walked in when they were doing the makeup and just went, “What’s going on here? They need to look more, more, more something” , and then just said, “Can I take your pallet?” to this poor little assistant and just grabbed it, dug her hands into it and came over to me and put it all over my face!

You often speak about having a healthy body image. What would be your key piece of advice to people struggling with this?

I think a healthy body image is really important. It’s really difficult because there’s so much pressure to be really skinny. My advice to young girls would always be this: if, when you look in the mirror, you can’t see anything you like, make yourself [like it]. Make yourself self-love. That’s the only way you can actually be happy. I had to start very small going, ‘Well, I quite like my feet’, and then everyday I had to find something else. Women are extraordinary creatures, and everyone should be celebrated for who they are.

Manchester rockers The Courteeners – exclusive shoot for FAULT Issue 14

courteeners inside1

The Courteeners were shot by Olgac Bozalp and styled by Arndt Stobba exclusively for FAULT Issue 14

Three years after their second studio album, Falcon, was released, The Courteeners have returned with their new record, ANNA, which takes listeners in a completely new direction. Both hyped and criticised throughout their career as being a “lad band”, The Courteeners have set out to prove that they can write and execute an album much deeper and more intricate than skeptical critics thought possible. While the emphasis with ANNA is on new techniques, electronic effects and catchy hooks, the band haven’t lost their original charm and undeniable capability to write stadium-filling anthems. FAULT sat down with frontman Liam Fray to talk about their newest release.

Did you set out to make an electronic record from the start?

No, not really. It’s getting a lot of attention. This record has more guitars on it than the last one, but I think it’s because Joe likes twiddling his knobs, putting all these different synth sounds in. The weird thing is when you’re in the studio you don’t think about it. You’re so involved, you’re so closed to it, you’re almost not thinking what people are going to think of it.

What would you say are the main highlights of ANNA?

I think it honesty is a highlight, I think it’s refreshing to have ‘cause the songs are quite personal. They’re not difficult to write but they are difficult to sing especially when I grew up with those boys. We pride ourselves on the fact that it’s real. I’m not writing them for a radio station or to get in a certain publication or so a certain clique in London falls for us, I’m writing it ‘cause it’s real and if people like it then happy days.

What does your typical tour rider request list look like?

Like opposite ends of the spectrum. You get all the shit like fucking coconut water and that. Pineapple juice for onstage, it’s good for singers but it looks like you’re drinking a fucking Piña Colada. We’d like to live fairly healthy but then get absolutely fucking wasted, so it’s like what can you get that’s going to repair your body from twelve ‘til eight pm? Then you go on stage and you come off and go what can we destroy ourselves with?

The Courteeners’s new single, ‘Van der Graaf’, is released this Monday 6th May ’13
