Stamp your sartorial panache on every look


Address your material needs

3 easy steps

A functional and confident wardrobe is one of the most valuable assets you can possess. It impacts on everything – from the job you take to the deal you land, the people you attract and the respect you receive. Whether you’re after relaxed or polished stand out looks, I’ll help you create your ultimate style edit.

Dressing well and interpreting trends can feel intimidating. For those who want to emphasise their best features, I provide valuable lifetime shopping advice and interpret what styles, colors, fabrics, cuts and brands work best. I don’t believe there is just one way to wear an outfit, but I do have strong ideas about how to pull one together!

Dealing with me, and only me, I’m there to personally guide you through the entire process whether it be for a one season kick-start through to an ongoing relationship. Clientele ranges from individuals preparing for transitional stages in their lives through to professionals requiring a corporate closet takeover. Most are simply time poor individuals whose wardrobes require a sharp edit. I deliberately work with a small number of clients to ensure that they receive my utmost attention and expertise. Although based in Sydney, I also travel interstate and internationally.

Hit the streets for a wardrobe refresh

Prior to meeting, I determine which stores we’ll be visiting in accordance with your budget and lifestyle. On location, you’ll receive tips and advice regarding which colours, styles and fabrics compliment you best and I’ll translate current runway looks to personally suit you.

Most makeover shops usually involve stocking up on the basics to build a capsule wardrobe and investing in one or two ‘future classics’ – timeless pieces to wear now and love forever. I like things that get better with age! We’ll also incorporate ‘hero buys’ – key seasonal pieces that can modernise and renew your entire closet.

The shopping sessions usually take three to four hours.

Time to work it

Back amongst your wardrobe the fun begins. We determine your strategic game plan incorporating existing and newly acquired pieces to maximise your closet’s potential. I’ll demonstrate how key seasonal trends can be woven in and show you how to mix and match accessories for individual looks.

Learn how to master the art of layering, recognise where hemlines should hit for the most flattering effect, and smash the art of power pairing (how to nonchalantly pull off a statement jacket or blazer with an everyday staple for maximum impact). I’ll also demonstrate how to take your look from the office to an evening engagement.

Each outfit scenario is photographed for your personal referral and add to the Style File available via your Client Login. Clients will have access to me via phone and email for on-going 2 months of styling advice.

The Style session usually take two to three hours, there is no limit to how many outfits we create together during that time. As far as I am concern the more mileage we can get out of the pieces in your wardrobe the better!
