Sydney stylist Molly King is more commonly known by her alias Foxy Zingaro. With a characteristically polished aesthetic, she employs a mixture of luxe details and bold accessories to elevate her classic yet seductive style. Over the years she's worked with local and global fashion houses and styled some of the most in-demand influencers. The rising fashion star caught up with us to style her favourite pieces from the Stevie May High Summer '17 collection, while revealing her inspirations, travel plans and projects for the future.
As a fashion stylist, what does a typical day look like for you?
A typical day always looks different for me which works in my favour as I live for change. I'm always working on new projects. If I'm not working from my laptop at a local cafe or at home, I'm generally sourcing, shooting or travelling.
How would you best describe your personal aesthetic?
My personal aesthetic is always evolving, I don't tend to slave to new trends and I always say I roll with my mood. Overall, my aesthetic is minimal and clean with added elements that give character to my looks.
Where do you pull inspiration from for your editorials?
Uh.. From so many different angles. I source inspiration from magazines, runway, trends, culture, past decades, women on the street, art.. I could source inspiration all day really ha. It's one of my favourite things to do!
What advice can you offer those looking to find and develop their own creative style?
Collect inspiration and put them together on a mood board, Pinterest is perfect. That way you can refer to it all the time. It's all about being comfortable first, staying true to your style whether it's quirky or polished. Just own it. Don't necessarily follow trends, inject them into your personal style in small details rather than getting lost in a trend you aren't sure of.
You just visited the Australian Outback! What were some of the highlights?
There were so many highlights on this trip. My most fondest memory would be sleeping in our swags under the stars with my best friend.
Do you have any other trips coming up in the near future?
Morocco and Japan are on the cards right now. Something to look forward to!
Coming into Summer what are you predicting will be the top trends as we change seasons?
Accessories.. Straw bucket bags, shoes, shades.. For evening I would say textures. Sparkles glitter, tassels, lots of movement to relax and groove in. I'm in a bikini and slip dress most of the time though so I'd be finding staples to wear repetitively!
Apart from fashion, what is something you are really passionate about?
Health and fitness.. Ha. Cliche
What is your favourite project you have worked on lately?
By far, the Foxy Zingaro Australiana trip. I'm already planning the next destination shoot which is exciting.
What’s coming up in the next year for Foxy Zingaro?
