I on Image at work -Creating ageless and timeless looks

This great The Guardian article by Alyson Walsh of inspirational style blog That’s not my age from last week made good fashion resolutions for grownups.

“…beyond a certain age, style becomes personal. The urge to buy into every trend subsides and it’s all about finding an individual look; one that’s timeless and ageless and works for you.”

– Alyson Walsh for The Guardian

These are basically the same style dilemmas my clients battle with. I do my very best every day to help my clients find their own style that tells their story. I often get asked how. This is how I roll at I on Image.

What happens during a personal styling session?

First I dive inside your wardrobe. I build strong looks from the items you already have. I take a critical look at each piece. Some may have to go, some will be replaced. I hang your complete outfits from Monday to Friday in your closet for fast and easy mornings.

Often there are more than 5 outfits. And even more often the clients get inspired and creative along the process! Every outfit is documented or alternatively we take photos. Getting a sudden invitation will never be a fashion dilemma for you again. Your personal style journal will always have an answer for you.

Then we make a shopping list to fill in the gaps in your style narrative. I take in consideration your existing wardrobe, body shape, colours, budget and other special wishes. Many clients are surprised how short the list can be. My last client really needed just a perfect black jacket and a couple of shirts to replace the old ones.

Finally we hit the shops. Some clients like to shop on their own when they know what they are looking for. I am happy to shop with those who prefer gentle guidance. I know brands, materials, current trends and styles that will flatter you forever. Some customers feel confident enough to shop alone after a few rounds, some love the service so much that they don’t want to shop alone ever again.

 

What I love the most about my job

I enjoy the most to see the glow of confidence and excitement on my client’s face when they try on an outfit or an item of clothing that speaks volumes on them. It belongs to their story and they know it.

“In life and in fashion: “It’s good to maintain a sense of wonder.”

–  Iris Apfel for The Guardian
