Every personality has a personal style to suit.

There are 7 main styles of dressing:

Natural

Classic

Elegant

Dramatic

Sexy

Feminine

Creative

 

Let’s talk about the CREATIVE STYLE!!

People with a creative style are original individuals who are always on the lookout for new combinations that express their own personality. This style comes naturally – you basically have it or don’t.  They can wear a rubbish bag and still look so bloody good in it and the rule is ‘There are no rules!’

The creative mixes anything and everything – from formal to sportswear, hard rock to soft and sweet.  They love juxtapositions and constantly get eyed up and down – they basically dress how they feel and as a result unintentionally dress to shock!!

Creatives are bold, innovative and enjoy to make statements. Of course your outfits clash however it is overshadowed by your confidence and tude.

Check out our Dancing Stylist video that screams ‘Anything goes’ from a self-proclaimed fashion junkie.

Self proclaimed DIY-er Setting my creative juices on fire!

I am a DIY-er, clutter creating, mistake making, mish-mashin ‘somethin-outta-nuttin’ kinda lady.

The first time I saw the beauty in something so mundane was when I was about 10 years old and it was on a church beach trip. I fell in love with a thick tree branch that had all these smaller branches growing out of it and was stoked when I was able to persuade my mum to let me bring it home.

I envisioned painting it and hanging the few accessories I owned off the smaller branches. Long story short the beast never turned into the beauty so my mum threw it out.

To this day I still collect a lot of knick knacks that I think will look great as an outfit accessory, however it isn’t until I’m rummaging through my drawers that I remember that I have them. Here’s a classic example:

This necklace is a belt I just added brooches to.

One of the reasons I love to alter pieces of clothing is that it fuels my curiosity to create. My brain is constantly ticking, thinking, analysing, over-analysing so physically creating things allows me to get things outta my head and bring them to life whether they’re a hit or a piece of crap.

I am definitely one of those people who when I see something I really like or if I come up with an idea, I prefer to try and make it myself. Part of it is because I think if someone else can do it so can I and the other reason is that I get to learn something new, which means I’m challenging and working on myself.

up-style baby!

I always like to up-style things in my wardrobe especially my shoes by adding or taking off pieces where I can. I can stay in a haberdashery store like Dave’s Emporium for hours just looking at all the bits and bobs that will set the creative juices on fire.

As people are winding down for the year Team Kila’s are in full swing!

Man, it’s a great feeling to work with a team who are in sync with your thoughts. No longer are we running around like headless chooks gasping for air. For a while there we were turning craZy chasing our own tails, doing things for the sake of it. We lost the vision, the inspiration and the hope. Then we had that awkward conversation about what we as individuals wanted out of Kila’s and now our awesome team of 3 are united working towards the same goals which personify our passion.

The bread roll, sushi roll and crab are now in-sync!

We have our own individual strengths which as a team we utilise for the best outcome and we assist each other when we come up against personal obstacles. Our values we stand for are a true representation of who we are as individuals and as Team Kila’s.

Every now and then I test our team and ask them what our vision, mission and values (VMV) are. It’s always an awkward cicada moment with no eye contact. lol It’s important we know these inside out as it’s a reminder of who we are and what our purpose is. Everything we do needs to be in alignment with our VMV in order for us to grow. However to be honest I am still trying to memorise the last few values. One day I’m sure someone from our team is going to put me on the spot and show me up with the same question.

Meet John; John has a Bachelor of Design majoring in textiles. As you can see his fashion sense is out of this world furthermore his creative thought process is truly heaven sent! He’s been with us for nearly 2 years and from day one John has been wowing me with his flamboyance. He offers much much more than just his painted nails and PRADA bag though :)

Ty is determined, diligent, and resolute. If we need things done, she is our GO TO GIRL. She has been with us since day one and has blossomed into an astute young lady. May I add ‘on this occasion only’ that she is my niece. We have figured out how to make our relationship work when it comes to Kila’s. I don’t see her as my niece and she doesn’t see me as her aunt – and it works for us!

This recreational process has been a blessing for Kila’s Style. We are so amped as we work on some exciting upcoming projects which includes our new ‘Dancing Stylist’ feature that will go live next month!  With weekly catch ups that keep us both accountable and inspired I know for a fact Team Kila’s is definitely going to be a force to be reckoned with as we get ready for 2016!

Team Kila’s is a lil bit of Nora, John, Ty and a lot of PASSION.

Merry Xmas from Team Kila's! x
