I'm Jude, the founder and the face behind Styling by Lumiere. I love helping my clients become more confident in their personal style.
I understand the importance of feeling confident, not only in what you do but in how you present yourself to others. So, after working in finance for over 20 years, I decided to start my personal styling business in 2017.
Style is something I have always been interested in, even as a child. Being stylish isn't about wearing all the latest fashion trends or designer clothes. For me, being stylish means putting a look together that makes you feel confident and amazing. This is the approach I take when I work with my clients, no matter what their background is.
I get asked why I chose 'Lumiere'. Lumiere, in French, has different meanings but they all relate to 'light'. I picked 'Lumiere' because to me it means 'glow' and 'shine'. That's how I want all my clients to feel after our style consultations. I love seeing them transform and gain confidence. This is the most rewarding aspect of being a personal stylist for me.
In my spare time, I love to travel. When I do, I like to bring something home that is locally made that I can incorporate into my wardrobe. It's a special way to keep the special memories and experiences from the destination alive.
One of my 'weaknesses' is shoes but it isn't something I want to work on. My go-to items to elevate any outfit are accessories. It's amazing a pair of earrings, a belt, or shoes can transform an outfit.
I would love to work with you to help build a wardrobe that you love and feel confident in every time you wear your clothes.
I can understand that sometimes hiring a personal stylist can be a scary thing. So I invite you to read the testimonials of my clients who have shared their experiences to help you make that decision. Our complementary Style Rediscovery Sessions are another way to find out if we are a good fit.
...When I tried on the clothes she had selected for me I realised that I have a body shape to be proud of. I ended up buying an entire wardrobe, all of which fitted into my shopping budget (including a skirt, which I never would have worn before) and I felt so confident about my new look! It was the best feeling! ...- Jennifer
