I love fashion. I love its history, its impact on society, the expressiveness and symbolism of the one thing that all human beings have in common: wearing clothes. I am at my happiest when I bring my love and understanding of fashion to my clients. Watching their eyes light up as they rediscover what makes them feel great is what fuels me. Knowing that they trust me during this personal and intimate journey is something I cherish and don’t take lightly.
Everything about my role as a fashion consultant is personal and unique to you. All sessions start with an online questionnaire and additional thought-provoking activities. Your own virtual closet will be created in a private account which allows for easy and convenient communication regarding your wardrobe. All sessions include follow up and unlimited calling, email, or text message inquiries for up to two weeks after your initial meeting.
