It’s not too hard to find a struggling make-up artist, model, hairstylist or designer in New York, despite it being the capital of all things creative and fashionable. If you were a big deal on the Dublin scene take yourself down several pegs, be prepared to do the coffee run and work for free to improve your book before you even consider getting any paid or regular work.
Yes, the so called “paddy book” is what London fashionistas call the crème de la crème of Irish portfolios proudly presented by Ireland’s best talent, and this is easily translated to the American agents, retailers and recruiters. Your eight page shoot in the Dublin Mountains for The Gloss may have seemed like your prize offering to book your debut job in this new market but it just won’t cut it in these parts. Also, any commercial work you’ve done doesn’t count for anything in fashion so no diversity please!
