Every woman has her own shape, her own style, & her own insecurities, and it is my goal as a stylist to give you a wardrobe that compliments your shape, highlights your favourite features, minimises your flaws and gets you excited to get dressed every day.
“Fashion is what you’re offered four times a year by designers. And style is what you choose.” — Lauren Hutton
Just because something is trendy, doesn't mean that you should wear it. Having your own personal style is about dressing in a way that suits your personality, your body shape and in a way that is practical for your lifestyle. It's all about knowing what works for you. Learn about your colouring & complexion, what colours, cuts, fabrics & prints work for you, & hone in on the woman you want the world to know.
Is your wardrobe filled with new pieces of clothing that have been sitting there for months will the tag still attached? If we buy clothes that don't fit our bodies or in with the rest of our existing wardrobe, chances are we won't wear them.
We'll identify those pieces, talk about why you bought them and I'll explain why they haven't worked for you. We'll weed out the pieces that don't work for your body or your lifestyle, and then put together head-to-toe outfits that do work. By doing so, we can identify the gaps in your closet, be it a great suit jacket, a classic heel or a versatile handbag that fits seamlessly into your wardrobe.

Getting dressed is easy, I can show you how!
The objective is to find you pieces that will make you feel confident, beautiful & strong. To start with, we will talk about what your lifestyle is like, what your budget is, & what your needs are. I will do a body consult to determine your body shape & discuss what you like and dislike about your body.
Then it's time to shop! As we browse the racks, we'll pull out pieces that you or I like and we'll talk about if they work for you, why or why not. This will help you shop for yourself in the future. We'll try on pieces together, and I'll show you how pieces with the right cut & fabric can highlight your best features and conceal your areas of concern.
“Style is very personal. It has nothing to do with fashion. Fashion is over quickly. Style is forever.” — Ralph Lauren
Dressing well isn't about being on trend, or spending a ton of money. It's all about knowing yourself, what works for you and what suits your daily needs.
If the words Black Tie Optional, Cocktail, Smart Casual, Business Formal confuse the hell out of you, you're not alone. Every woman wants to be the belle of the ball, the one who grabs the attention of the room, in the best way possible.
We'll have a brief image consultation, and with that information in hand, I will prepare options for you to try on. Once we've chosen the dress, we'll talk through hair and makeup options that best suit the dress and occasion, and choose hair & makeup artists if desired.
