To stay ahead of the ever-changing landscape of the fashion industry, I review collections and study trend reports seasons prior to hitting the media, department stores or boutiques. I also attend pop-up shops of emerging designers, runway shows and private label trunk-shows. And details … being detail-oriented is second nature.
Listening is the cornerstone to effective communication. I pride myself on being able to absorb the details from a conversation and translate a fashion vision in a way that is enthusiastic, professional and understandable. **On occasion my passion overrides and I have to catch myself to give a Twitter-voice version: short and sweet!
Stylists oversee and manage huge inventories of clothing, shoes and accessories. Tracking a client’s wardrobe: what was worn to a special event, occasion or red carpet is vital to avoid embarrassing moments like duplicated looks or back-to-back photographs of the same outfit. These skills are close in importance as Aesthetics.
Starting a career right out of high school, owning and operating a business at 21 years old set the foundation for establishing a strong business sense. With over a decade of experience running successful businesses and learning how to fail forward, I gained a wealth of skills in “seeing the big picture”.
Ursula is a fabulous stylist, who knows her stuff, and her clients and their needs! I believe she visualizes us in whatever she chooses (outfit, shoes, accessories) because it always is exactly what's needed! I don't do special events without her service.
I am so fashion challenged, it's not even funny! But with Ursula's coaching and tips, I now feel confident dressing myself for most occasions. It's gone from getting compliments only on the outfits she styled to getting the occasional compliment on outfits I chose myself. A HUGE success, and it's only possible with Ursula!
When it was prom time for my daughter, I knew right away who I would go to. Ursula did the damn thing (pardon my expression). My daughter was ecstatic as Ursula captured the exact look that she wanted to go for.
The best! Her insight into the realm of men's fashion is impeccable. A true life transforming experience. Going forward I am not settling less. Ursula will have a say in everything I wear, for every occasion.
I don't impress easily. I am amazed by her talent. Her professionalism is also worthy of substantial note. She is timely. She is respectful. I appreciate all aspects of conducting business with her. I recommend her services without reservation!
Working with Ursula for my special day was an amazing experience. My Wife was extremely pleased. Ursula's sense of style, creativity and attention to detail landed us in Bride magazine!
My educational background is in Information Technology as a self-taught Engineer. Being a nerd who builds solutions plays a huge part in how I strategically use my creative muscles to help people look good.
One of the highlights while working with Clients is watching the instant transformation that occurs when they love an outfit I’ve styled them in. Cheers to your new confidence.
At a young age I designed clothes and even worked backstage at fashion shows. As my skills and talents in the industry progressed, I finally decided to pursue Personal Styling as a way to help people.
Several projects in progress:
I thrive in creative, collaborative spaces and would love the opportunity to be apart of your team for editorial projects. If you feel I would be a good fit, let’s connect.
