Personal Style Consultations
"My Personal Style Consultation with Jude was fantastic! It was so helpful to talk through my style objectives before the session as it meant Jude came prepared with some fantastic ideas on shapes and colours (as well as suggestions on what to avoid!). Her warm approach and guidance based on my price point were really welcome. My takeaway Style Passport has made it so much easier to give my wardrobe a well overdue sort out and simplify my decisions on what to wear and buy. Thanks Jude!". - Anna, Senior Communication Manager (July 2019)
My shopping excursion with Jude was fantastic! She was able to select items that were perfect for me, yet not in my usual style. This was exactly what I wanted. Jude was very open and friendly, and gently guided me to different outfits which all looked great. I was ready for a revamp of my look and Jude delivered in spades.
Although I haven't had a chance to wear everything yet, (I bought a lot) I have had very positive comments on what I have worn. My husband loves it all also, and was impressed with Jude's ability to provide me with so much variety, and style as well. It was a very productive day but also a lot of fun.
The Wardrobe Detox for me was a fabulous kickstart to the whole project. - Dianne, Enjoying retirement (Oct 2019)
Thanks Jude - great selections, suggestions and tips on how to choose and wear items to accommodate my change in body shape. Most importantly compliment my assets and personality. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and look forward to wearing my new wardrobe with pride. Would definitely recommend Jude for personal styling and advice.- Sonia, Business Development Manager (Mar 2019)
I would highly recommend Jude for a shopping / styling session. I had a fantastic afternoon updating my casual wardrobe with Jude, she takes the time to really understand what you are looking for and your style. Having everything pre-selected and waiting for us was great, Jude was great at providing feedback and giving style tips. I ended up with 2 dresses, 3 skirts, pants, a pair of shorts (I really struggle finding shorts but Jude found the perfect pair), 5 tops and 2 pairs of shoes. Exactly what I was after. I would of never achieved this on my own and I now have a casual wardrobe that is stylish and comfortable and so many different options, no more standing in front of the wardrobe wondering what I am going wear now. Thanks Jude, it is definitely the way to shop. - Yvette, Risk Manager (Dec 2018)
It truly was an experience shopping with Jude the fashion stylist... She worked very hard to get my sizes and chose different styles to suit my body shape , she asked me what my budget was and I said “single mothers budget” . She came well below my budget . 18 items, some jewellery, 1 pair of shoes and all in 3 hours . I have never had so much fun shopping,..Also gave me so many tips on how to dress or shall we say tricks to the trade. She knows where the sales are and real value for money . Thank you Jude, can’t wait for winter and formal dress shopping. I have to say I feel so much more confident and love the compliments from family, friends and more Importantly from my kids. Thank you Jude. - Nirupa, Product Manager (Nov 2018)
Firstly, shopping with Jude is so much fun! Jude pre selects all items for you to try on. I was amazed when we just walked straight into change rooms like a VIP with outfits ready for me to try. It’s just so easy. Clearly the magic of this lies in the time and effort that Jude takes to first understand what your needs and taste are and then preselect these outfits. I found almost of the items she picked for me, were my style and most importantly went well together. A couple of things she chose were not items I would normally have tried but she surprised me and once I put them on, loved them! I am now a denim skirt owner. Who knew?! Thank you Jude. Your efforts have really expanded my wardrobe and I feel like the choices work so well together that I’ll save money by avoiding items that don’t work with the rest of my wardrobe. I could not recommended Jude’s services highly enough! - Amy, Pharmacy Area Manager (Oct 2018)
Thank you Jude for your patience and your warm guidance today. Your advanced preparation made clothes shopping an efficient process (I didn’t think such a thing existed). I appreciated that you took into consideration my style preferences, whilst encouraging me to try on things I wouldn’t normally gravitate to, with no pressure to buy. You took what is typically for me, a painful and tedious experience with not much to show at the end and turning it into a productive day with me making a number of purchases, including a pair of awesome boots! - Naomi, Project Manager (May 2018)
I just wanted to write to thank you for the great time and amazing assistance you gave me in putting a wardrobe together. I am a terrible shopper, I don’t even enjoy trying things on, I want clothes to find me, not the other way round. The day I spent with Jude was a real eye opener. 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! She also taught me how to accessorize and which colours and clothes suit me and my complexion. All the folk I work with, and my family, have been complimenting me on what I have been wearing ever since I bought the clothes. - Jennifer, Business Analyst (Nov 2017)
I had a fantastic day shopping with Jude. She listens to what you like and what you think suits you best, but she also has a lovely way of taking you outside your normal wardrobe style and trying on something new. And guess what, 99% of the time it works. It’s such a great confidence booster because you actually have someone styling you and not just trying to sell you clothes. Totally recommend Jude to style you too!- Mandy, Business Analyst (Nov 2017)
I loved having Jude help me detox my wardrobe! It was really great having an objective eye appraise the contents and to see which items genuinely suited me and which ones I was holding on to out of guilt. Thanks to Jude I wore a jacket today that hadn’t seen light of day for some time, but worn in a new combination that I loved. I learned some new guidelines about what suits me that I can use in future but when I’m ready to for a few new things I’m going to ask Jude for more help. Looking forward to next time! - Birgitte, HR Partner (May 2019)
I love clothes, hair and make up... but I wasn't comfortable pulling it all together and feeling it reflected "me"! Jude was excellent, offered new insights on what suits me, but also confirmed those nagging doubts about THAT top that really doesn't suit me. It was a liberating push to get rid of the "ok-that-will-do clothing" and focus on what suits my body, personality and colouring - my style, my identity. I've continued to detox my wardrobe and I'm enjoying having less clothes but more options.- Christina, Change Management Consultant (Jan 2018)
Jude came around to assess my current wardrobe. She was constructive and honest but most of all she made me feel comfortable. Jude used the session to get a feel for me and my style. I had feared that she would try and impose her style on me but that could not be further from the truth Styling by Lumiere is magic. Not only did Jude completely solve my long-time wardrobe issues, but she did this so efficiently — in a couple of hours, and so thoughtfully and with such genuine care and attention to my needs and preferences. She is an excellent stylist who always provides a reason as to why she removed something from my wardrobe.-Jennifer, Business Analyst (Nov 2017)
Special Event Styling
Has the gift of putting together an outfit that suits the individual. - Marlo, Senior Project Executive (July 2019)
I went shopping with Jude, I had a holiday coming up and I had a feeling I wasn’t buying the right clothes for my body type.She told me where I may have been going wrong and showed me a few things that she thought would suit me. I wouldn’t have picked them out myself, but I loved them. She knew my style almost straight away, which I loved! She never forced me to try anything I didn’t like, and always gave me options!
What she picked looked great! And they were things I wouldn’t have chosen on my own, because I didn’t think would suit me. I can now pick out items I know will suit my type and be comfortable! she’s also always there when I need a little advice. She is absolutely fantastic! -Jenene, Marketing Executive, (Feb 2018)
Jude's help, honest input, advice, and sharp eye for fashion over the years have been invaluable. All the items she has selected for me were perfect and the results have not gone unnoticed. I have had so many positive comments from family, friends and colleagues. I would highly recommend working with her at Styling by Lumiere to anyone looking for guidance in creating the perfect wardrobe- Anita, Yoga Teacher (Dec 2017)
Ok, so I was nervous. A 40-something guy being taken shopping by a fashionista - who wouldn't feel a little out of place? I had a 2hr shopping trip planned with Jude, professional stylist, a present from my wife (was she telling me something?).
From our first phone chat I knew Jude would be nice, easy going and good humoured. Initially I provided some sizing info and wardrobe needs, which she used to pre-shop at Chadstone Shopping Centre for me, putting aside things for me to try on. We met on the day, and chatted about my wardrobe (think lots of things that are too old, don't go with each other, ill-fitting, or from another era!).
Then, we hit the shops! Now, I've shopped before, but never like this.
She had picked out plenty of items for me to try as complete outfits - what a difference that makes! She gave me tips along the way on how to wear items, the styles that suited me, the colour combos - all the things you discuss with your mates down the pub (yeah right!) 2 hours went fast, but I was on a roll. I bought confidence, in the form of clothes with style, comfort, utility and value. I saved hours, even weeks of time I would have spent mindlessly walking around stores and malls in a daze, with not much to show.
The result - lots of new outfits, my wardrobe gaps filled, clothes that fit, suit my style and work with my business and social life.
I cannot recommend Jude enough, the whole experience was friendly, educational, productive and even dare I say...fun! She even helped me carry my shopping! 🙂 What I learned will help me identify my needs, mix and match, and shop with purpose.
If you need some friendly and clear advice on what to wear (and what not to), with everything waiting for you at the store to try on, and no pressure to buy...then you can't go past Jude. - Sunil, Senior Executive Designer (April 2018)
Fantastic service from Jude Stevens gave me some great fresh ideas and a rejuvenated wardrobe to get me through the next 12 months for all my racing days and events. - John, Managing Director (Nov 2018)
Online Shopping Service
Jude was great. I actually won a styling session. she was so patient with my booking that changed several times due to my kids and work. We eventually decided to do an online [shopping] session and the stuff she chose was great. I constantly get compliments and love the clothes I walked away with. I keep in mind the tips and tricks she has taught me when shopping to further my wardrobe. highly recommend this service. - Suri, Relief Teacher (Sept 2019)
What a wonderful addition to our wellbeing calendar - a corporate styling session. Jude walked us through helpful tips and fashion ideas to help us get the most out of our wardrobe. We had a mix of guys and girls attend and Jude effortlessly moved between men's and women's styling in a thoughtful and engaging way. Everyone really enjoyed it. Highly recommended! - Tracey, Head of HR (Sept 2019)
Jude's session was fantastic - not only was it informative but we all had some great items to take away that we could put into practice immediately. The question time was light hearted and fun, especially of the do's and don'ts of modern trends. thanks again Jude - Andrew, Financial Analyst (Sept 2019)
Jude did a great session for our workplace, with helpful tips for men and women, on how to find your style and dress for your shape and your personal style. Jude is engaging and empathetic and knows how to style for all shapes, sizes and budgets. It inspired me to re-assess my 'work uniform' and start thinking of ways to add a bit more personal style back into my daily wardrobe. Thanks for a fun and helpful session! - Jackie, Business Analyst (Sept 2019)
