Hi and welcome to dressyu. I’m Sarah, a Personal Stylist based in Melbourne, Australia. I offer a range of styling services to individual clients, groups, and businesses.
I’m originally from England which is where my personal styling career kicked off. Whilst running a corporate recruitment consultancy in London, I increasingly found myself providing candidates with styling advice and helping them to understand the importance of image in the workplace. I also ran workshops, spoke at a variety of industry events, as well as sharing my advice and stories in the media. After 12 years of wearing a suit, I decided enough was enough – it was time to combine my experience and knowledge with my love of fashion and start my own personal styling consultancy.
However, the Aussie sun and lifestyle beckoned and in 2008 I made the move from London to Melbourne. After ticking off some of my Aussie bucket list (such as trying to figure out Australian footie and how to make Lamingtons) I launched dressyu Melbourne in 2010.
Since I began dressyu, my aim has always been to provide my clients with expert advice by listening and really understanding what they want to achieve.
I want every client to feel at ease from the start of their style journey with me – I understand that for many, it’s totally nerve-wracking and a whole new experience. I love seeing my clients walk away feeling positive, armed with loads of new style tips, and telling me how much they’ve enjoyed our time together.
As well as dressyu stylist, I was previously a Personal Stylist for Highpoint Shopping Centre, providing a Personal Styling service for their clients and running fashion events, media campaigns and fashion styling. I’m also an Ambassador for the National Breast Cancer Foundation, supporting the charity by speaking about my own personal breast cancer journey for the media and at NBCF fundraising events. I also offer complimentary styling to women going through breast cancer (dressyu Understands).
And finally, let me share a few things about me from beyond the wardrobe … I can’t go without my two coffees a day (and they have to be perfect as I’ve become a really annoying Melbourne coffee snob), I proudly tell people I’m a runner (but sadly/embarrassingly my knees can’t cope more than 20 mins), Iike many during COVID my evenings revolved around Netflix although I’m (worryingly) shocked how I’m fixated on anything gruesome that makes my heart race.
I can’t wait to chat and find out more about you!
