What Does Personal Styling Entail?
Personal styling touches various aspects of a person’s wardrobe.
A closet cleanse declutters one’s closet and eliminates items that don’t fit properly, purges garments that are outdated or fail to support your desired image, and identifies items to purchase to complete your wardrobe.
Special Occasion Styling
In today’s digital age almost all events are photographed, featured on social media, and possibly captured in print format. How we look is remembered long after the event date. Searching for, let alone finding, the perfect outfit for life’s many celebrations can seem overwhelming. In addition to purchasing attire for photo shoots, television appearances, speaking engagements, award ceremonies, weddings, interviews and parties, on location styling is an option. Coordinating appearance prior to an event commencing, as well as wardrobe creation, fall into the personal styling domain.
Style Development Packages
Style Development packages create a signature style for clients. The process begins with a complimentary thirty minute meeting to discuss goals, current image, and create an action plan.
After the plan and image are agreed upon by the client, shopping for the new wardrobe takes place and styling looks from the new wardrobe follows. An optional follow-up meeting is available to ensure you are maximizing your new wardrobe and mastering your newly created style!
How Important is What You Wear?
What you wear is critically important. Significant scientific research validates the fact that attire strongly affects first impressions, attitude and potentially professional success.
In 1920, psychologist Edward Thorndike validated his bias theory which is now known as the Halo Effect. The Halo Effect is a cognitive bias in which an observer’s overall impression of a person, influences the observer’s feelings and thoughts about that person’s character.
In other words, knowing positive things about someone, will result in attributing additional positive things to that person. This holds true even in the face of contradicting evidence. Appearance is a significant example of how the Halo Effect works. The role of a stylist is not only to provide people with a coordinated, functional closet full of exciting clothing but also to ensure positive visual impressions occur.
