I can’t thank Innovators of Style enough for helping me to create a perfect wardrobe. Although I had a pretty well-organized wardrobe, I did have a habit of occasionally buying ‘expensive’ clothes that I never wore. I’ve also suffered from the common affliction of having a wardrobe full of clothes but nothing to wear! Using my private stylist platform, from your website, was one of the best things ever! Your recommendation was exceptional. I’ve saved a ton of money and it as so inspiring – re discovering my clothes again and buying new ones that I really loved.
“I love the pieces I got and Priscilla was great. Great guidance. I felt that I started to understand more about my own personal style.”
“With the help of Innovators of Style I was able to get beautiful items that I never would have purchased on my own.”
"I was thrilled with the services offered by Innovators of Style including prompt follow-up to my inquiry and timely scheduling for the closet assessment, style transformation and shopping.”
Priscilla is very professional, reliable and has a great sense of style. She took her time to listen and understand me, my style and the kind of style I wanted to go for. She advised me on styles that suit my body shape. She looked at my wardrobe and helped me get rid of clothes that were no longer working for me and identified key pieces that were missing. She has a great eye for putting pieces together creatively and showing me how pieces can be worn in multiple ways. My self-esteem has increased and I feel more self-empowered. I no longer struggle with selecting outfits for different occasions. I would highly recommend.
