What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I start with a 30 minute free phone consultation to better understand your needs and goals.
The purpose is for you to get to know me and my approach and for me to learn about your specific situation and why you are looking for a stylist. This helps both of us to determine if we would work well together. You can easily schedule the free phone consultation online at: zipstyleseattle.youcanbook.me/
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Formal training with a Certificate in Personal Styling from the Los Angeles' School of Style
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
Most clients choose one of my styling packages or I can work at an hourly rate. I'm happy to discuss options to see which services would work for you.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I started personal styling in the beginning of 2013 and since then have developed an efficient process for building out new wardrobes. I also have formal training with a Certificate in Personal Styling from the Los Angeles' School of Style.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I primarily work with woman in their 20, 30s, 40s, 50s. Most of them have professional jobs but some are stay at home mothers. I've worked with woman of all shapes and sizes and height! Each individual has unique fashion challenges and I enjoy helping to solve them.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Projects generally consist of (1) Free 30 minute phone consultation (2) Wardrobe assessment & styling which takes 1-3 hours (3) Shopping sessions which take 3-5 hours with an average of 2 sessions
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
I recommend talking to a few stylists on the phone to determine if you have a good rapport with them. I find clients want someone they feel comfortable with - not just talking about clothes, but about their lifestyle, their work goals, and how they want to present themselves to the world. This requires trust and a good working relationship. Find someone you want to spend time with!
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Think about your goals - how do you define success? For example, do you want a few new pieces for your wardrobe? A complete overhaul? This will determine the approach to solving your issues and help me get you to where you want to be!
