WHAT IS A STYLEGUIDE:
When it comes to developing a quality brand experience, it is all about consistency. To be successful you need to be creatively consistent, forever evolving but always staying true to your fundamentals.
For this exact reason, an image StyleGuide (as part of a broader brandbook) is essential in keeping images consistent and ontrend. The StyleGuide sets out the precise parameters that govern your online visual merchandising making it clear to everyone what is onbrand and what is not. Ensuring your fashion collections always looks great.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT :
In a nutshell, a StyleGuide helps to ensure a continuous brand experience. It means that no matter how, when or where a customer experiences a brand, they are experiencing the same underlying image. It’s this consistency that helps build a brand and customer loyalty.
At StudioDrop we understand how important the StyleGuide is to all fashion brands big or small. So we decided to make it part of the photoshoot builder process (as you can see in image above) and the best thing is you get it for free.
