I started my fashion career young, as my brother was a fashion designer for a top Italian design group, I was at the Milan shows from an early age. Fresh out of college, I trained with the very best of British designers, Paul Smith, after which I joined the internationally famous, and impossibly stylish, fashion team at Browns. There, I learnt the foundations of style and how to dress the body. My natural eye for fashion was nurtured under the wing of owner Joan Burstein – one of the most stylish ladies on the planet, and I became part of the Brown’s international buying team.
My instinctive understanding of how high-end fashion translates to the high street led me next to Italy, a country whose innate flair for style is as evident on the runways as it is on the streets. Working with highly successful fashion designers, I was inspired by the local markets, vintage shops and jumble sales scouring for next season’s must-have garment. I honed my styling ability and, after freelancing at many of London’s major agencies, launched Style Liberation in 2001.
My clients range from 14 to 70 and I work with men, women and teens. I take time to get to know you and your lifestyle so that you can get the most out of our time together. Every session is tailored to your needs, whether it’s a wardrobe edit, personal shopping session, creating your colour chart or dressing for an occasion, I relish the challenge of finding the perfect style for you.
My first love is to dress and style people no matter what their background, budget or reason for wanting a stylist. Helping to make a difference to the way someone feels about him or herself is the best part of what I do and watching my clients’ confidence grow is incredibly rewarding. I feel extraordinarily lucky to have found the best job in the world!
