A wardrobe stylist fashion stylist, is a consultant who selects the clothing for published editorial features, print or television advertising campaigns, music videos, concert performances, any public appearances made by celebrities, models or other public figures. Stylists are part of a larger creative team assembled by the client, collaborating with the fashion designer, photographer/director, hair stylist, makeup artist to put together a particular look or theme for the specific project. A wardrobe stylist can be referred to as a fashion stylist, fashion editor, or celebrity stylist. According to one view, "Stylists are the people who push each celebrity to make the best dressed list," and assist with editorial photo shoots; the job description varies depending on the assignment. Stylists in the editorial and celebrity fields work with designer samples, which are shown during fashion presentations and are lent to members of the fashion press during the 4–6 months before retail sales begin.
High-level stylists may collaborate directly with designers to produce custom clothing for celebrity clients or editorials. Stylists may provide services such as personal shopping, restructuring a client's entire wardrobe, reorganizing a client's closet, or other duties relating to the client's personal lifestyle. A wardrobe stylist is distinct from a costume designer, the person who clothes characters in film, television, or theater. A wardrobe stylist is distinct from an image consultant or a color consultant. A person can be a color consultant without knowing the basic principles of style. An image consultant is an expert in both color and line, may work with business professionals or individuals, as opposed to celebrities in particular. A color consultant's aim is to identify the most flattering colors for their client, while the goal of an image consultant is to tell a story about the client through clothes and colors. Wardrobe stylists can be paid a day rate, or a project rate. Editorial assignments tend to pay less money, while advertising campaigns, commercials, or spokesperson campaigns tend to pay the most.
Some freelance fashion editors, that is, stylists who work in producing editorial content, may receive a rate per page in a given publication. Stylists may be paid a flat fee for the length of a project called a buy out; some stylists can be put on a monthly retainer, in which they are paid a set fee for a period of time and are on call for the entire time period. Wardrobe stylists are sometimes represented by agencies that specialize in representing wardrobe stylists, hair stylists, makeup artists; when a wardrobe stylist is represented by an agency, the agency books all of their work or assignments for a fee ranging between 10% and 20% of the stylist's fee. The agency ensures that the stylist's needs are met guaranteeing that transportation and travel and accommodations are all taken care of before the wardrobe stylist takes an assignment. Agencies expedite the client's payment and make sure that the wardrobe stylist is paid in full within 30 to 60 days of completion of the assignment; some schools now offer courses in becoming a wardrobe stylist, but of course, there are specific educational requirements for the position, such as having an artistic sense about which articles of clothing work together to make a beautiful look.
Most stylists acquire these professional skills and knowledge by assisting other glamorous, established stylists, in a system similar to apprenticeship. Connections and experience are important. For example, after studying at the Rhode Island School of Design, celebrity stylist Elizabeth Sulcer apprenticed with British fashion designer Alexander McQueen for several years. Stylist assistants are hired at a rate between $150 to $350 a day. Assistants' responsibilities can vary depending on the stylist and the assignment; some are hired only to perform physical labor, such as setting up for a client fitting or returning samples to a press showroom. According to one report in Seventeen Magazine, there were no specific education majors helpful for becoming a fashion stylist, but that degrees in fashion design, merchandising, marketing, color harmonies, art history and photography, understanding of the human body - how it stores fat and ages and how women's perception changes to color, could be helpful, but overall it was helpful to read fashion magazines to develop a "great eye for fashion".

England is a country, part of the United Kingdom. It shares land borders with Wales to Scotland to the north-northwest; the Irish Sea lies west of England and the Celtic Sea lies to the southwest. England is separated from continental Europe by the North Sea to the east and the English Channel to the south; the country covers five-eighths of the island of Great Britain, which lies in the North Atlantic, includes over 100 smaller islands, such as the Isles of Scilly and the Isle of Wight. The area now called England was first inhabited by modern humans during the Upper Palaeolithic period, but takes its name from the Angles, a Germanic tribe deriving its name from the Anglia peninsula, who settled during the 5th and 6th centuries. England became a unified state in the 10th century, since the Age of Discovery, which began during the 15th century, has had a significant cultural and legal impact on the wider world; the English language, the Anglican Church, English law – the basis for the common law legal systems of many other countries around the world – developed in England, the country's parliamentary system of government has been adopted by other nations.
The Industrial Revolution began in 18th-century England, transforming its society into the world's first industrialised nation. England's terrain is chiefly low hills and plains in central and southern England. However, there is upland and mountainous terrain in the west; the capital is London, which has the largest metropolitan area in both the United Kingdom and the European Union. England's population of over 55 million comprises 84% of the population of the United Kingdom concentrated around London, the South East, conurbations in the Midlands, the North West, the North East, Yorkshire, which each developed as major industrial regions during the 19th century; the Kingdom of England – which after 1535 included Wales – ceased being a separate sovereign state on 1 May 1707, when the Acts of Union put into effect the terms agreed in the Treaty of Union the previous year, resulting in a political union with the Kingdom of Scotland to create the Kingdom of Great Britain. In 1801, Great Britain was united with the Kingdom of Ireland to become the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland.
In 1922 the Irish Free State seceded from the United Kingdom, leading to the latter being renamed the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The name "England" is derived from the Old English name Englaland, which means "land of the Angles"; the Angles were one of the Germanic tribes that settled in Great Britain during the Early Middle Ages. The Angles came from the Anglia peninsula in the Bay of Kiel area of the Baltic Sea; the earliest recorded use of the term, as "Engla londe", is in the late-ninth-century translation into Old English of Bede's Ecclesiastical History of the English People. The term was used in a different sense to the modern one, meaning "the land inhabited by the English", it included English people in what is now south-east Scotland but was part of the English kingdom of Northumbria; the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle recorded that the Domesday Book of 1086 covered the whole of England, meaning the English kingdom, but a few years the Chronicle stated that King Malcolm III went "out of Scotlande into Lothian in Englaland", thus using it in the more ancient sense.
According to the Oxford English Dictionary, its modern spelling was first used in 1538. The earliest attested reference to the Angles occurs in the 1st-century work by Tacitus, Germania, in which the Latin word Anglii is used; the etymology of the tribal name itself is disputed by scholars. How and why a term derived from the name of a tribe, less significant than others, such as the Saxons, came to be used for the entire country and its people is not known, but it seems this is related to the custom of calling the Germanic people in Britain Angli Saxones or English Saxons to distinguish them from continental Saxons of Old Saxony between the Weser and Eider rivers in Northern Germany. In Scottish Gaelic, another language which developed on the island of Great Britain, the Saxon tribe gave their name to the word for England. An alternative name for England is Albion; the name Albion referred to the entire island of Great Britain. The nominally earliest record of the name appears in the Aristotelian Corpus the 4th-century BC De Mundo: "Beyond the Pillars of Hercules is the ocean that flows round the earth.
In it are two large islands called Britannia. But modern scholarly consensus ascribes De Mundo not to Aristotle but to Pseudo-Aristotle, i.e. it was written in the Graeco-Roman period or afterwards. The word Albion or insula Albionum has two possible origins, it either derives from a cognate of the Latin albus meaning white, a reference to the white cliffs of Dover or from the phrase the "island of the Albiones" in the now lost Massaliote Periplus, attested through Avienus' Ora Maritima to which the former served as a source. Albion is now applied to England in a more poetic capacity. Another romantic name for England is Loegria, related to the Welsh word for England and made popular by its use in Arthurian legend; the earliest known evidence of human presence in the area now known as England was that of Homo antecessor, dating to approximate

Sir John Moore Church of England Primary School
Sir John Moore Church of England Primary School known as Appleby Grammar School, is a junior school situated in the village of Appleby Magna, in Leicestershire, England. The school was constructed between 1693 and 1697, based on an original design by Sir Christopher Wren and Sir William Wilson; the school was established and financed by Sir John Moore, the younger son of the local squire who became Lord Mayor and Alderman of London. The school occupies an elevated position to the south of the village and sits in its own walled, landscaped grounds totaling just over 3.5 acres. The main school building is Grade I listed; the primary school was rated "outstanding" in its last Ofsted inspection. Sir John Moore was second son of Charles Moore Esq. owner of Appleby Parva Manor. His elder brother called Charles, was expected to inherit the family estates. John went to London to make a living as a merchant, he made his fortune in the City of London, was knighted, became Lord Mayor of London in 1681 and an Alderman of London.
Moore had no children and, wishing to use his wealth to benefit his home village, financed the building of a school next to his father's estate. Moore commissioned Sir Christopher Wren to prepare the initial drawings. After Wren's first design, the work was taken on by local architect Sir William Wilson who both studied under Wren at Oxford University and worked for his Company. Construction started in 1693 and it opened in 1697. For most of its existence the school was known as "Appleby Grammar School" and operated as a free school for the boys of the village, as well as a boys' boarding school; the name was changed to "Sir John Moore Church Of England School" some time in the last century. It was in the last century that the school started to accept girls. During the Second World War, the school was used to house Belgian evacuees. During the Second World War, it was said locally that the flames of Coventry, after it was bombed, could be seen from the roof of the school. In the mid-1990s, following rising maintenance costs, the school was earmarked for closure.
A new school building was planned in a neighbouring field and the building was to be surrendered to the National Trust. After much protest from the villagers the school remained open, it received a £6,000,000 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to renovate the whole building. The stables were converted into a computer suite, the old dormitories were turned into a heritage centre and several old offices and storage rooms were converted into rented offices and apartments; the building still operates with 125 students from the village. It was described as "outstanding" in its June 2009 Ofsted inspection. Sir John Moore School now hosts many corporate events and weddings, has a midsummer music festival complete with firework display; the old school basements have been converted into a pub/bar called The Cellar. William Huskisson, well known as being the first man to die in a railway accident when he was knocked down by Stephenson's Rocket at the opening of the Liverpool–Manchester railway, he was a Member of Parliament in Liverpool at the time.
