FAQs

Who is your typical client?

My typical client is in her mid- thirties upwards, works in a male-dominated field, is successful in her career which may be in banking, engineering, consultancy or business and recognises that the area of her life where she needs help is with her wardrobe. She may lack time, due to a busy work schedule or hectic family life, motivation or interest. Now, she has decided to invest time and money to create a wardrobe that will help her elevate her image and make an impact at work.

Why should I hire a wardrobe detox expert? 

There are many reasons why you may choose to work with a Personal stylist.  For most clients it’s because they are in some form of transition and need help to navigate their wardrobe to reflect this. You may have changed jobs or career, gotten married, had a baby, lost or gained weight, received a new promotion or become single again following a separation or divorce. The majority of my clients come to me when their image and style is playing a key role in the achievement of their particular goals and they just want to feel more confident about the way they dress. 

How will I benefit from using a wardrobe detox expert?

When we look and feel good, we feel better about ourselves and are much more confident. My job of is to help you achieve this by creating a wardrobe full of clothes that you’ll love to wear because they flatter you and look fabulous on you.

Working with a stylist ultimately saves you time and money because I will be recycling and restyling the clothes that you already have in your closet. Once we build a good wardrobe foundation, you can mix and match items to create multiple outfits so you don’t need to shop throughout the season or whenever something comes up in your social calendar.

What areas do you cover?

I am based in London and most of my clients live in London or the South East area. I am happy to travel to client’s home for carry out Wardrobe Detox sessions but there will be additional charges for travel and expenses. Personal shopping trips take place in Central London because of the wide range of stores which allows me to provide the best shopping experience for my clients.

What can I expect from working with you?

Every client has a different goal so the experience won’t the same for everyone. My clients have found the styling experience rewarding and in some cases, life-changing. They find working with me an enjoyable and beneficial experience. Read my Testimonials to see what they’ve had to say. You can expect to work with a professional whose only goal is to create a wardrobe that you’ll love to wear. You will learn more about how to dress for your shape and accentuate your best features. I am honest but non-judgemental, tactile and kind.

Whats are the styling sessions and how long are the appointments? 

The Stylierge Wardrobe Detox & Rebranding package is made up of 4 styling sessions. Body Shape Analysis & Colour consultation lasts 3 hours, Wardrobe Detox lasts 4 hours, Personal Shopping lasts 4-5 hours and Outfit Building sessions lasts 3 hours. The wardrobe detox and personal shopping sessions may be longer depending individual needs. I will assess your individual needs and be upfront with you about what is required before you proceed. The sessions will be carried out over 4 visits. All sessions take place in your home with the exception of personal shopping which will be carried out in Central London.

Can I bring my husband/boyfriend/ mum/friend/ to my appointment?

The purpose of your styling session is to take time and do something for yourself. Therefore, it is best if you don’t. My style packages are designed to be one-on-one experiences where you are the centre of attention. Sometimes bringing an additional person diverts attention away from you and your goals and this can be counter-productive. 

How can I pay?

I accept all payments via Paypal (there is a charge). I will require a deposit once a booking has been made and session dates has been placed in the diary. Full payment is due within 7 days of the session. Please see my full payment and bookings policy here. 

How often will I need your services?

I like to build a relationship with clients so they can contact me if they have any questions. After the styling package is complete, many clients choose to work with me twice a year to update their wardrobe for the coming season. Some prefer an annual wardrobe cleanse where we detox the wardrobe and refresh with new pieces. Occasionally, clients may want to book me on an hourly rate to shop for a special occasion or event. It depends on your individual needs and requirements.

What is the average budget for personal shopping?

It really depends on the client, their goals and their needs –  I usually recommend a minimum budget of £1,500. This is a rough estimate and as I said, it will depend entirely on your requirements. Most clients who come to me want to have a wardrobe overhaul and make a big investment in their new wardrobe but every client’s situation is different.  I will advise you on the best shops in order to achieve what you need from a set budget. 

Why should I work with you when most shops offer free personal shopping appointments?

In store personal shoppers are experts on their own brands. They know their shop’s stock and are only able to advise you on what they sell. The allocated time can be short and unless your stylist is professionally trained, they might unintentionally guide you towards choices that may not work for your lifestyle or compliment other pieces in your wardrobe. I find that in store personal shoppers are a good option if you are looking for something specific but don’t have time to look for it.

When working with me, I strive to get to know you, your goals, your body shape, your best colours and current life situation, so that I can make choices based on these factors. I take you through the entire process from start to finish in the privacy of your own home. With our shopping sessions, you are not restricted to one store because I will research the best shops based on your requirements and budget and you can rest assured that your new purchases will complement the clothes in your wardrobe. In addition, I am continuously training and developing my services to fit my clients’ needs and current trends.

I’m interested, so what do I do now?

Get in touch with me here and I will contact you, usually within 24 hours. I will arrange a convenient time for a half-hour consultation about your goals and what you are hoping to achieve. This will allow me to recommend the best styling package for you. If you are happy to proceed, session dates will be agreed and I will send you an invoice for a £150 deposit. You can then simply relax and await your first session.

What’s your cancellation policy? 

As stated in the Consumer Contracts Regulations of June 2014, you are entitled to a 14 days’ cooling off period if you decide to cancel any services you have booked. After this date, your deposit is non-refundable. You can read my full policy here.
