Orene is really fun to work with and made me feel at ease. I've always wanted to find the right professional to help me look and feel my best and Orene is the perfect fit for me! Her preparation and the forms she used to help me, made our time efficient. She is extremely knowledgeable about fashion, and used her tools to help me define a personal style goal, and train my eye to see what flatters my figure. We went through my closet and got rid of out of date and ill fitting items and she made a shopping list and put together outfits that I would never have thought of. Everything we worked on was organized into a binder that I can look back on and add to. I have already booked another session to go shopping with her and am really excited that Orene is helping me to achieve my goal!Dec 17, 2016Verified
n late August, my husband and I were about to leave for a trip back East for a black-tie family wedding, followed by 2 weeks in Europe. I was in a fashion panic. Fortunately, Orene came to the rescue and everything worked out fabulously. Despite her own impending trip, she took the time to take me through her valuable image assessment process, then whisk me through a mall, where she helped me pick exactly the right things to take on the trip - and wear afterwards. She is truly wonderful to work with - discerning but nonjudgmental, astute, creative, unflappable, and with great taste. And she even brought snacks! I've lost weight since our session. The bad news - nothing fits. The good news - more shopping! And, of course, I plan to work with Orene. I can't recommend her highly enough.Dec 3, 2012
It was a delight to work with Orene. I write for a teacher's magazine, and Orene helped me with a "back-to-school" fashion spread for teachers. She took them shopping and helped them find flattering and affordable outfits that made them look stylish and professional at the same time. She was patient and non-judgmental with clients and helped them feel good about themselves. Her goal was to help them find outfits that fit their personalities and pocketbooks. Several said they were "transformed" by the experience. I would highly recommend Orene if you or someone you know needs help in the wardrobe department. She does an amazing job and it helps that she brings a sense of fun to her work.Nov 29, 2012

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I wish customers knew that image consultants can save you money in many ways. Too many of my clients spend for items they never wear because they have nothing to go with them, or they bought them on sale, or their clothes don't fit properly, or their friends who have different personalities convinced them to buy the item. I make sure that everything in their closets work, and that their wardrobes are versatile and each item looks terrific on them. I also am extremely focused and efficient when we go shopping to stick with the shopping game plan and budget, and to not get sidetracked.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Prior to beginning a wardrobe audit or personal shopping, I do an Image Assessment to learn your style profile and set goals. This encompasses a Fit and Style Analysis, Lifestyle and Personality Wardrobe Assessment, and Wardrobe Building strategies. This way we bring out your authentic self while you look your best.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am a certified image consultant, which means I have taken course work through various institutions and a rigorous examination to obtain my certification. I also engage in ongoing education to maintain my skills and certification.
