THE INSIDER: SAM RANGER
house of holland's stylist speaks!
As the British pop brand heads into its third runway season at London Fashion Week, Sam Ranger takes a second to show us her seams.
When was the first time you styled?
My mum was a fashion editor so I was on shoots my whole childhood. I was in the womb for a lot of her best editorial!... In terms of my own actual "work" it was probably choosing costumes for friends when, aged 5, I would force them to act in my handwritten plays.
How do you describe your job to clueless people?
I make pretty people look prettier in pretty clothes.
Which projects are you most proud of styling?
Being fashion editor at POP was amazing and I'm really pleased with everything I did there... Probably my involvement with House of Holland has given me the most proud moments, though... Last season was very tear-inducing - seeing that great line-up of models with Agyness Deyn at the helm, and having people recognize that it was a blooming brand and house outside of just the slogan t-shirt.
What things must you bring to every shoot?
...I always like to have a pair of Mickey Mouse ears somewhere there but that's usually for me.
What would your House of Holland shirt say?
I'm always asking Henry to make me one. Hold on a minute - I'm gonna text him and ask him.......Ok I'm back - it apparently would be: SHE'S FIERCE SHE'S MAJOR SHE'S SAM FUCKING RANGER.
How do you pose for a party photo?
I've never really learned to perfect the pose. - I generally end up just smiling like a moron.
