Editor’s Note: Read through to the end to find Laura-Jean’s giveaway for a complimentary Wardrobe Makeover!
Helping a customer during a Wardrobe Makeover last week, I saw a transformation happen before my eyes.
She came in looking like a 23 year old hipster. Lovely, fun and awesome, but not necessarily someone you would trust with a $100,000 marketing budget or assume she could ensure a staff of 7 would get a project done on time.
A couple hours of her trying different looks in the change room and I saw her differently. This cool and colourful young woman started to look to me like an Art Director with a capital A, a Marketing Manager or a Filmmaker who could make the film, on time, on budget AND accept an award for top grossing independent documentary.
It was a TOTAL transformation in who she seemed to be, and all this was in line with the career she wanted to create over the next few years.
I’ve built Fresh Collective over these years to provide women in Toronto a place to find the outfits that allow them to project the best version of themselves. Like it or not, fashion is a language. It’s like hanging a sign around your neck telling the world who you are. When we think of it that way, what does your sign say? Is there something you’d rather it to be saying?
When we do a Wardrobe Makeover, we start with a Style Profile. You fill out a quick survey that tells us about what your style preference is, what you want it to be, and what your lifestyle is like. We specialize in awesome looks for real life. We know how to create looks that work for you and work with you.
We set an appointment to work with one of our Style Coaches who pre selects looks based on your style profile. All the browsing is done for you to make it easy and simple for you to find whatever you’re looking for. When you show up for you appointment, the fun begins.
Many women book a Wardrobe Makeover when their life is changing, but it can be done anytime, and the holiday season is a perfect time for women to use the service to find the perfect holiday wear. One of the biggest advantages is learning what works and doesn’t, and having an experienced professional help you build a wardrobe that all works together. Too many women experience that old cliche: “A closet full of nothing to wear.”
We help you make smart choices, choosing versatile pieces that work together, fit and are comfortable so you have fun creating new outfits and getting a lot of wear out of each piece. We also help you stay focused on dressing for that life you are creating!
You’re newly dating and you want romance? Dresses, fun and colour are what we’ll steer you towards! The Wardrobe Makeover is time set aside for you to experiment with this new language of fashion and watch yourself transform in the mirror. Women often surprise themselves, saying things like “I didn’t think I could wear this colour!” or “I usually wouldn’t try something this bold but I LOVE IT!”
Want to jump start your career? A polished yet creative look positions you as a leader, a problem solver and someone who can be trusted to get things done. We’ll choose the pieces to help send that message out into the world, everywhere you go.
Think it’s too expensive to build a fantastic wardrobe? Take a look at your closet and add up how much you’ve spent on clothes you didn’t like, never fit right or didn’t go with anything. We’re committed to wardrobe building- choosing quality pieces you love that you’ll wear for years to come.
Worried it’s too much work to look good? I am the laziest dresser out there. I have NO time to spend on primping and fussing. I throw on a dress, a cardigan, a bracelet and boots and fly out the door. With a son, 3 dogs, 2 businesses and taking classes in the evenings, I’m just like so many of our customers. Each season our store staff take on making my life easy by putting together the perfect looks for me to get ready in a second.
If you’re in the market for the perfect holiday dress, or maybe the perfect wardrobe to kick off your career in 2014, I’ve included our style profile form for you to complete. We’ll pick three lucky ladies who have completed this form, to participate in a complimentary wardrobe makeover at any of our stores. We’ll notify the winners by November 30th.
If this sounds like something you want for yourself, please fill out the style profile and let’s get to work!
