I had the opportunity to ask George some questions about fashion and style. As an eclectic dresser, I wanted to know the ins and outs of his fashion universe that he is obviously absorbed in. George would be conversing with you and he easily gets distracted by, you guessed it, fashion. Please feel free to ask for his contact information if you require his services. He’s pretty much worth it.

It all depends on the client, the budget and the event. As a stylist or shopper you need to please the client make the look great and always remember the fashion!!!!!
Is there a strategy you use to shop for individuals? – I usually like to browse, shop around, compare prices, and just get a feel for what’s out there and what would be the best for the client’s body and budget. And I think that’s a great tip – don’t just go in one store and get what they have. Shop around and get a feel of prices and what’s out there before you buy.
Which Jamaican celebrity would you like to makeover? – OMG! Umm now this is a question and a half. If I had to pick one I’d probably say Spice.

Rated FTO for teens only.
Anything you would like to say to my readers? – Not to be afraid of fashion…go in your closets, play around and clothes are our statements to the world. We can be whoever and whatever you want. It doesn’t have to cost a lot of money. 5 thousand can be just as fab as 20 thousand.
The inspiration is free.
