Many people ask what it is I actually “do.” SO here it is. Step by step guide to how I work. Next week I will cover film/print stylist and what that actually means.
As a personal stylist I help men and women refine their personal styles, wardrobes and I edit/organize closets and personal shop.
Step by step it looks like this: (I am using one example of my service, closet audit/edit)
- Client reaches out to me and says they want help editing their closet (to decide what really is best for them)
- Client receives 5-6 questions about their current style, personality and what they want to reflect
- We meet, I see their closet. Take measurements of their body. See their coloring. I also see their personality, their living space, who they are. What they do. Where is most of their wardrobe spent ( i.e. is it a work wardrobe 75% vs. casual) Your closets says a lot about you.
- I leave to re-process all the information. After the intake session I determine their body type by the calculations, their coloring (i.e are you a cool and soft? warm? deep?) and the best plan of action for the closet audit. If client does not have matching hangers and wants an organized closet I recommend matching hangers.
- We set time and date for closet audit/edit.
- Meet. Go through what works, what does not in their current wardrobe. We make piles a) donate b) alter/repurpose and c) keep d) sell.
- After this process many clients choose to use my personal shopping service to fill in the gaps to purchase pieces that could pull the now edited wardrobe together.
- Personal shopping. I literally go shopping to stores I know would be best for you. I bring the clothes to clients house on a rolling rack and client shops the rack. I return what is not kept.
I know brands and stores that you may not know and therefore I shop those stores bringing only pieces that are best for YOU, your body type and COLOR. It’s how I shop.
Clients have a clear sense of their style, what shapes work and what colors work. If you hate sifting, I am the person to make life easier and bring you what you want.
