‘Slow’ personal styling takes time

There are many excellent personal wardrobe stylists – or image consultants – around the world, and many of them share a tried-and-tested model when it comes to dressing their clients.

They start with a ‘sort’.. culling what they can and paring the wardrobe right back.

Next they shop.

One day, five or so posh stores, lots of logo-strewn shoppers, and as much neutral linen as you’d find in the bedding department of Saks.

Next, the client is shown how to style it all and off they go, TRANSFORMED just like a modern day Cinderella.

Not so at Slogue.

Slogue styling is very different to any other professional wardrobe styling process.

The nature of slow fashion means it is not easily accessible; vintage that fits and works for your shape and style needs to be carefully sourced, secondhand treasures can’t be relied upon to appear like magic, and if you choose locally made bespoke (as one client is currently doing) it is a process that requires time (fittings) and thoughtful investment.

It makes absolute sense that slow fashion requires a slow styling and shopping process because it’s meant to be for life, and where Slogue is involved it reflects an ongoing creative, collaborative process rather than a day at the shops.
