Bernadette van Wijlen is a stylist & visual production designer. A background in Graphic Design provided her with an abundance of visual viewpoints, but it wasn’t until her internship at a photography studio she discovered her love for styling. Naturally commercial, Bernadette decided to study Lifestyle & Design at Willem de Kooning Academy to further develop her creative and conceptual skills. She graduated researching symbolism around props in 17th century Dutch painting.
Today, Bernadette is all about producing and styling accessible, commercial projects. She works in both fashion and the production of stills. A pragmatic and structured force, Bernadette is at ease overseeing and creating projects for magazines and brands. As long as everything comes together on a shoot, she’s a pleased creator. In her work, Bernadette communicates in colour and form, often based on a graphic line pattern. This trustworthy visual partner is happiest working on small and larger scale projects in the style of popular high street brands.
