So I thought it might be nice to take you on a little tour of the über stylish office space of the House of Orange. What + who is that you ask? well, it's the agency that represents me here in Europe (see the little orange circle on the righthand side of my blog?). They are the master keepers of my styling portfolio and the lovely people who book me work! So come with me as I take you on a little wander through this fab place...
This is the kitchen + bar, where there is always tea upon arrival, and orange lollipops (and at easter there are chocolate easter eggs to snack on). This is also the area where meetings are held between stylists, clients, photographers, and art directors. It's a pretty cool space.
Here in this photo is half of the styling team, Joanne and Marilie. Missing in this photo unfortunately is Erik and new arrival Martin. These four are always flat chat as they represent more than 40 stylists from The Netherlands and beyond - from fashion stylists to hair+makeup, and a sprinkling of interior stylists including stylist and art director Stef Bakker , Bas Andrea, Ulrika Lundgren, and me.
Above you can see all our portfolios. We each have our own shelf with our name and inside the shelf is a little drawer for our mail, magazines and invitations (that's where I found this gift). If the shelf is empty it means our portfolio has been requested and is out with a client.
And then up those seemingly intimidating stairs is the photographic department. It's a whole other world up there! And then there is the modelling part of the agency and then Orange Babies which is the agency's charity organisation for helping with the prevention and care support for HIV babies and mums in Africa. Orange Babies organises alot of fundraising events within the fashion industry, read more about this wonderful organisation here.
And just recently the House of Orange published it's first magazine! (as shown above) It's full of great articles and photos from the talent at the agency so if you'd like to get hold of one just ask. You can read more about the House of Orange by heading over to their website, and have a browse through everyone's portfolios by clicking on a department and name. Enjoy! I do hope you liked this little tour, and I have no doubt we'll be back here again soon, for now I just wanted to show you a little bit more of my life in Amsterdam.
