My Personal Styling clients know that I love the idea of repurposed fashion. It's trendy.. it's buzz cliche word *sustainable* for the environment. There is also the fact that current designer trends do not necessarily cater for all body types. In Designer-seconds' Boutiques, while there is only one-of-a-kinds, one-size on offer, you can often lucky-dip finding that truely unique showstopper piece, that while a couple of seasons old, or even only one season old.. is still timeless in style. It can make you look just as current as brand new current season, and is still perfect for an image overhaul. This said, there is a knack or an eye to scoping out these timeless pieces! That's where your stylist advisor comes in handy!
A couple of weeks ago I caught myself staring wistfully at suitcases of mint condition - designer prop clothing: Thinking; What on earth do I do with all of these beautiful under-utilised pieces.... taking up space in my attic, this is a waste! And then.. The concept of SHOP Holley's Closet was born! Holley Ebony wanted to give everyone, not just her in-the-flesh clients, the opportunity to browse and be tempted to add to the cart; pieces that have been sourced and loved for their eclectic edgy, impactful aesthetic; Many by well loved NZ and overseas designers. They have been used namely for the purpose of photoshoot wear... some brand new, as new, some vintage (but always in wearable - lovely condition).
It's an interesting time to be alive - this 2020. Being in the Image Consulting business as a Personal Stylist shopper, I encourage supporting small business; local NZ Made, or NZ Business Retail stores and small boutique designers. This said I will continue to give my clients the best of both worlds whether we are looking at the local boutiques for that fab new piece in the right colour fit or style for their very unique body shape and colour tones, or trawling my designer seconds favs!
