I'm Jude, a personal stylist based in Melbourne and I work with men and women. I'm also the founder and the face behind Styling by Lumiere.
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 (although I do like them in small doses). For me, being stylish means putting a look together that makes you feel great and confident. This is the approach I take when I work with my clients, no matter what their background.
I understand the importance of feeling confident, not in your ability but in how you present yourself. I love helping everyday men and men gain confidence in their personal style. So in 2017, after working in corporate for over 20 years I decided to start my own personal styling business, Styling by Lumiere.
Lumiere, in French, has different meanings but they all relate to 'light'. For me, 'Lumiere' means 'glow' and 'shine'. That's how I would like 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.
...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
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 remember the memories and experiences from that destination.
One of my weaknesses is shoes but I'm not sure if it is something I want to work on. My go-to items to elevate any outfit are accessories. It's amazing what a pair of earrings, a belt, or shoes can do to an outfit.
I would love to work with you to help build a wardrobe that you love and feel confident in what you wear. I can understand that for some hiring a personal stylist that you don't personally know can be a scary thing. So I invite you to read the testimonials of my clients to help you make that decision.
