Interview with stylist Barbara Gullstein

Hi everybody, Yesterday, we had a lovely visit in the showroom! Stylist Barbara Gullstein, that you may know from Go' Morgen Danmark, came by to style two outfits she believes represents the trends of AW14. We absolutely love them both, and we want to own every item ourselves. We also asked Barbara some questions we would like to share with you, so you can get to know one of our favorite stylist a little better...

Barbara certainly has an eye for details. We are in love with the double turtleneck which gives a cool and casual look. As a bonus, it keeps you extra warm! And it seems like you can keep layering your items this winter, and it contributes with a great finish to your overall look. The white shirt, from Calvin Klein Jeans, being visible from under the sweater gives a sophisticated look and works great in contrast to a more relaxed outfit.

And here we have Barbara doing what she does best! Styling, paying attention to details and being creative..As promised, here are the questions we asked the always sweet, and inspiring Barbara in order to learn more about her and her vision...What do you love the most about your job?The creative freedom, the people I work with, and the diversity that follows with my job. How come you became a stylist, and how does it affect you as a person?A modeling agency contacted me, and asked if I wanted to style their newface shoots, and as naive as I was, I threw myself into it. So with help from my amazing friend, Wiktor Hansson, I went in the right direction. Later on my current agency Scoop Models, contacted me saying that they wanted to represent me. How do you like to spend your time when you’re not working?I love spending time with my son and my boyfriend. When you work odd hours and work as much as my boyfriend and I, then you want to use all your spare time with your family. Furthermore I do hot yoga, where I can recharge. Describe in 3 words what Danish style and fashion is to you.Wearable, simple and fitting. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?Living in Denmark with the world as my work space. What is your absolute favorite tendency this AW14 season?I think there are so many cool trends this season, but the turtleneck I have bought in many different varieties. It is a classic item, which can be styled in numerous ways, and it keeps you warm, which I’m a huge fan of in the winter season. How does it contribute to you as a stylist, that you are permanently styling at Go’ Morgen Danmark?First of all, because it is a Danish television show and has to appeal to a wide audience, then my features have to embrace a lot of people and the clothes have to be available for everyone. It is both challenging and fun at the same time. Furthermore, I have to do research every time I have to talk about new trends. In that way, I learn new things and am able to constantly develop. It is both motivating and extremely giving. You have styled shows, editorials, commercials, and lots of other things, which job challenges your creativity the most and why?My own projects! When I collaborate with a photographer, and we have to art direct together and create something from scratch.  I can come up with many creative ideas, but having to realize them is something completely different. I have a hard time restricting myself. It is a challenge when you have plenty of good ideas, but sometimes ideas that are unrealistic. .After this interview, we love Barbara even more! We hope that you got to know her a little better - we certainly did!  Have a great day, XX 9PR
