INEZ GARCIA - bellaMUMMA's fashion contributor


we can’t wait to share her style & ‘where to shop’ posts with you

Inez Garcia has been working as a fashion director and stylist for the last 19 years, and in that time she has styled innumerable fashion, accessory, celebrity and beauty shoots over her career. She was Fashion Director of Sunday Magazine between 2005 and 2012, where she shared fresh, fun fashion ideas with more than three million weekly readers. Prior to that, she worked for many of Australia’s leading fashion publications including Harper’s Bazaar, Elle and the (sydney) magazine.

In addition to curating and creating fashion images every single day for her amazing site, Inez Daily, she work on other editorial projects, styles advertising campaigns, oversees the creative direction for designer runway shows, conducts fashion presentations and television appearances and works as a celebrity stylist for A-List stars like Cate Blanchett, Miranda Kerr, Sienna Miller, Rose Byrne, Rihanna, Nicole Ritchie, Jess Hart and Sarah Murdoch, to name just a few. {Check out some of her work below!}

To find out a bit more about the lovely Inez, we asked these questions:

You, in three words? Curious, cheeky, ever so slightly obsessive (about the pretty things)

What inspires you? The seemingly inexhaustible source of terribly talented people creating beautiful things – be it art, music, movies, architecture, perfume, furniture, fashion, interiors…

What’s your work title? In true ‘slashie’ style, I have a couple of job titles… I’m a fashion stylist and creative consultant in addition to my role as Editor of my INEZ Daily website.

What was your first ever job? Fashion assistant at MODE magazine (a bazillion years ago!)

What did you want to be ‘when you were little’? I was tossing up between 2 things, an astronaut at NASA (I’m still a bit if a space nerd) and a Greek muse like Olivia Newton John in Xanadu (because she got to hang out roller skating all day with her sisters).

How did ‘INEZ Daily’ come about? INEZ Daily came about by wanting to share what I’ve learnt over my 20 year career working as a fashion stylist. It’s designed to give a little glimpse inside my world, both inspiring and sharing all I know with my readers – a daily dose of trends, insiders tips, fashion profiles and style solutions for busy women who love fashion but don’t have a lot of time on their hands.

Explain your usual day? There is no real ‘usual’ day – it’s always a bit of a crazy juggle between my three main roles of mum, editor and stylist… I’ve discovered since becoming a mum that kids are reliably unpredictable, so it’s usually a matter of squeezing in my work commitments around what ever my two little guys decide to throw at me!

What ‘makes your day’? A lot of the usual subjects: swimming in the ocean, being surrounded by wonderful music, a great movie, happy children, a full nights sleep, a long, hot bath with my Kindle, lazy afternoons spent laughing (and drinking… and eating) with friends, early morning exercise (so I can bask in my ‘yes, I did exercise today’ glory), time spent just ‘hanging out’ with my husband…

Who’s your fashion icon? Yasmin Sewell never gets it wrong and is super lovely and talented too – the total package.

How would you describe your style? My style always borders a little on the ironic – I love to wear classic shape, in lovely fabrics but they’ll be put together in less expected ways with fun, bright colours and eccentric prints.

Three products you can’t live without? My white canvas Spring Court sneakers, Nars ‘Red Square’ Velvet Matte lip pencil and Redken ‘Wool Shake’.

Fave perfume? Le Labo fragrance

What will you be doing 5 years time? Oh, goodness… 5 years…hmmm… So much has happened in my last 5 years so it’s hard so imagine… but I hope to be still working on lots of fun, creative projects with terribly talented types, all whilst travelling the world regularly with my wonderful husband and adorable boys – oh, and a lovely little ‘India Hicks’ inspired beach house to escape to on the weekends would be fab too 🙂
