Meet The Stylist Behind Our Leyla Campaign

We were lucky enough to be reunited with one of our favourite style queens. Get to know @lainylainylainy, as she chats to us about becoming a stylist, highlights of the job, and gives us a styling tip or two.

Home town?

Lainy: While the Philippines is my motherland, Melbourne is defs my home town coming to live here when I was 4 years old.

How did you get into styling?

Lainy: Honestly, I made business cards one day during the GFC after being fired from my PR job and started handing them out during a shift at a cafe that I used to work at – to this day my old boss / coworkers give me shit about it hahaha. But honestly I wanted to be a stylist for as long as I could remember and getting fired gave me that  push I needed to finally chase my dream. I was lucky that my PR and advertising jobs gave me a good insight into the styling industry and it was easy to “fake it “ before I made it as I had a good network of contacts.

What’s your favourite part of your job?

Lainy: Shoot days! Creating beautiful pics with talented creatives and putting beautiful pieces on beautiful models in beautiful locations. Nothing compares!

Favourite pair of SODA’s?

Lainy: The Hailey and the Dylan always get a lot of air time, but I think its definitely the Leyla now!

Go-to styling tips?
