Personal Styling Services
With over 20 years experience in fashion, film and advertising, Leah Van Loon has amassed an enormous toolbox of techniques and strategies to get you styled and ready. Leah can help you with not only what to wear but how to wear the things you already have in new ways. Leah’s job is to create an opportunity for you to take pleasure in the daily act of getting dressed and offers services to help you whatever your budget, size, gender or style. Leah brings her years of styling experience to help you discover the best version of yourself.
While this is the most time consuming option this is the best way to get a fully personalized experience. In this session you will look at the clothes you have and work with Leah to create a strategy for you to reach your style goals. Leah can create outfits from the things you most want to wear (and maybe don’t know how) and even teach you how to do it yourself with some basic styling techniques. You will also get tips for clothing care and inspiration to try new things. Each edit is entirely personalized and no two are ever the same.
Leah is also available for styling sessions to create looks for all your upcoming special events, especially great during gala season. This gives you the opportunity to work with what’s already in your closet and really focus on the pieces you might need for the upcoming season. Leah is also available to wardrobe you for your special trips for work or for pleasure including a packing service.
Best for: This is a great opportunity to really clean out your space so you can move in your new direction. This will also give you a chance to identify your style issues and find all of the holes in your wardrobe to create a list for your shopping. Making outfits ahead of time with photographs for reminders can save you a lot of time in the future or if you are feeling uninspired.
This is always on special at $500 with a minimum of 4 hours you will need to set aside (max 6).
Maybe you love shopping or maybe you hate it or maybe you just haven’t learned how to do it! After a quick phone consultation we will meet at one of the malls, boutiques or department stores, depending on the needs we’ve identified in the consultation. Malls are often the best when time is limited and offer the most opportunity to try new styles. Specialty boutiques are also available including local fashion designers who can create pieces just for you. Leah also has some tried and true websites to recommend for your online shopping and can walk you through the basics of how to tell if something is right for you from a photo. This is when years of professional shopping, fashion training and understanding of cut, fabric and sizing really come into play. Leah has the resources and the imagination to help you reach your goals. This is an opportunity to take the mystery and hassle out of shopping and show you how to make the most of your time and money.
If you really would just rather not shop, Leah has built relationships with retailers to pull items from the shops for you to try in the privacy of your home or office to create your own private shopping experience. This is a great option for those who are just too busy to get to the stores or would rather not shop themselves. Using her many years of experience doing pulls for fittings for clients and shows Leah will pull a curated selection specifically for you. This also includes returns or exchanges on your items. Travel opportunities are also available for focused shopping trips to destinations such as New York, LA or Paris. Please inquire for travel rates.
Best for: This is the best option for those who need very specific and concentrated shopping or would like to learn how to shop for themselves. Perhaps you have an upcoming special event, a job interview, a promotion, or you’re just getting out of your style rut. While this is a shopping experience you are not obligated to buy anything (you will have to try it on though!).
This is on at a minimum of two hours, maximum of 8 hours per session at an hourly rate of $125/hour. Most shopping trips are accomplished in two to three hours.
This is usually a professional service for people who are working in entertainment, media, or music who need help creating their public image. While most people do not fall into this category you can still benefit from professional help with your look and get suggestions, strategies, and recommendations based on your lifestyle and needs. This can be as simple as a one hour session just to meet and discuss or Leah is happy to bring a selection of wardrobe for you to try. An image consultation comes automatically as part of the closet edit or the shop.
Best for: If you are looking for ideas of where to start or just need some direction as well as just getting ready for your new public image.
This is a one hour minimum session and is $125
