Style Made Simple began as an overhead light bulb while enjoying a spa day. I wanted to create an organized way to help friends and family who were always asking advice from their resident stylist. I began to test what are now our 2 most popular services (Private Styling and Wardrobe Edit). The response was overwhelmingly positive and I knew I had something special on my hands.
It all came together while I was styling Stacy London and launching the business simultaneously. I perfected how to interpret trends for a camera-ready celebrity that could also be successfully applied to anyone. In addition, I adapted the celebrity service model, the stylist, for non-celebrities. Because there is so little information surrounding the industry, we developed Style Society education program and E-book series to teach what it takes to style yourself and others. Style Made Simple isn't just about one stylist. We are a collective team of talent constantly developing and pushing forward to explore how to fill the gap between celebrity and non-celebrity. There are Style Guides, Lecturers, E-books and a network of stylists and resources available to every client.
Many people ask how I got here. The answer is: passion and hard work.
