August 20, 2018

Melbourne-born, London-based Jamie-Maree Shipton a.k.a. airtomyearth is a Stylist and Creative Director whose client list includes Vogue Italia, i-D, Garage Magazine, Novembre and Odiseo - just to name a few. We caught up with the seasoned stylist on all things fashion including her style icons, her most prized fashion possession and how “doing you” might just be your ticket into the fashion industry.

 

What’s been one of your favourite styling jobs?

I can’t really pinpoint a favourite. I love everything I’m creating in the moment, but generally it’s always about the next thing. I try to ride the wave and create based on my current mood. If I had to pinpoint something, it would be working with my best friend Tom Blesch in Paris on a Garage Magazine editorial.

How did you get into styling?

I started writing for i-D Australia, then moved into styling editorials to run alongside my written work, from there styling just took over.

Who are your style icons?

Anyone that just doesn’t give a fuck.

“My style icon is anyone that just doesn’t give a fuck”
 

What’s your styling tip or trick?

Stop thinking so much.

What fashion item would you get if money were no object?

Damnnnn, I mean some archive Margiela Tabis would be up there.

“I have the original Balenciaga blanket and bazaar bags from Demna’s first collection. I really love how they remind me of the moment he changed up the fashion game.”

What’s your most prized fashion possession?

I have the original Balenciaga blanket and bazaar bags from Demna’s first collection and I really love how they remind me of the moment he changed up the fashion game.

 

You’re a big supporter of emerging talent in fashion. Who are some creatives to watch?

Always the CSM grads, they push boundaries on the daily.

Who should we follow on Instagram right now?

My best friends @westernaffair and @tomblesch.

 

Do you have any side-hustles?

Side hustles lol, chasing invoices is a full time job.

“Side hustles lol, chasing invoices is a full time job.”

What album do you have on repeat right now?

Travis Scott and Jay Rock’s new albums.

 

What advice would you give to younger people looking to break into the fashion industry?

Don’t let anybody make you question your worth, we are already so critical of ourselves. Just do you, trust your gut and fuck the haters.
