I’m Wendi McGowan-Ellis and believe Fashion is a powerful Force.
I DESIGN FOR and STYLE women who desire to
make a statement with how they are dressed.
“It’s not about the Fashion Designer anymore, but how the woman pulls herself together… She becomes her OWN designer.” ~~ Donna Karan
Let’s work together to define your style through outfits and accessories that make a statement, but are easy enough to wear and use every day. You need, and deserve, a wardrobe that makes you feel fantastic every time you get dressed. Clothes and accessories that reflect your confidence and strength. A kind of armor that helps you tackle your day, every day.
As a designer and stylist, always inspired by art, fashion, and fabrics, I’m constantly thinking about how the right accessories can change not only your look, but your mood, your attitude, and your state of mind.
Whether it’s a statement necklace, a perfect LBD, or an artistic accessory, I can assist you, in the privacy of your home, in creating a strategy for your image, your wardrobe choices, and help you stand out every day.
Because my primary business focus is designing and creating hand-painted handbags, scarves, and pocketsquares, this service is extremely exclusive and I work with 4 clients at a time by appointment only.
CLOSET & PERSONAL ANALYSIS
We’ll begin with you. To create the closet of your dreams (or at least, doesn’t give you cold sweats), we start with a discovery process to uncover your image and style goals. Who do you want to be? What image do you want to project? This is your opportunity to reveal the woman you were born to be.
By exploring your lifestyle and fleshing out your goals, we’ll then move on to determining your body type, color preferences, and budget.
Then, we’ll go through your closet and decide what you need to keep, trash, or donate. While going through your closet, we’ll discover wardrobe “gaps,” make a list of your current needs for the season, and make plans for an upcoming shopping trip if necessary. My first goal is to help you “shop in your closet,” so we’ll consider your…
Sometimes, it’s just a matter of uncovering those hidden gems you’ve forgotten about. This is an opportunity to organize your pieces by season, specific category, style, and color. We’ll evaluate items that are loved/loathed, and uncover opportunities for new items. I promise: I will NOT throw away all of your clothes. In fact, I bet I can create 5 fabulous outfits you’ve never put together before. Once you see what you have, it will dramatically improve the way you get dressed and simplify the daily dressing process because we will be…
SHOPPING YOUR CLOSET
If you have loads of clothes but “nothing to wear,” dressing may have become a chore for you because you haven’t yet developed the knack for putting outfits together. Together, we’ll decide which items you have that will take your style a step up (or two!) creating numerous outfits in no time. Most times, it just takes a fresh set of eyes to will mix up your current closet and create a new wardrobe without even hitting the stores. But, if you have some gaps, or want some new pieces, we can embark on a…
PERSONAL SHOPPING SESSION
Shopping should be a fun and creative experience. As your style consultant, I cater to you introducing you to the best brands that represent personality, lifestyle, and budget. During our time, we might try some new things every once in a while… items you might have walked right by. We’ll do this to educate your eye for evaluating what works for you body’s shape and size and your image goals. Without the pressure of a sales commission, I’m here to give you professional (and honest) feedback on every item you consider adding to your closet.
Over time, we’ll methodically review (I highly recommend a Quarterly Review) and monitor your wardrobe to ensure that it continues to represent your style and meet your image objectives. The ultimate goal is to develop YOUR optimal wardrobe that carries you flawlessly through any occasion.
