I met the lovely Kirsty through a mutual friend in my previous life as a personal trainer, and instantly was drawn to her warmth and passion for what she does. I was familiar with the services of personal stylists but had never had the opportunity to meet one personally or understand what they do in any real depth. I had the pleasure of working with Kirsty back in April of last year, and learnt so much from the experience. I found Kirsty's approach really comprehensive, and as a result I learnt a lot about what I was doing right and wrong in the clothes I was wearing. Kirsty's professionalism and personality makes her an absolute delight to work with! Read more about this gorgeous woman below x

What makes your business stand out from the rest?
With years and years of leadership experience under my belt, I work with my clients on more than just clothing. Any stylist can put someone in pretty clothes, that's not difficult. But not all stylists have two decades of leadership experience under their belts. I work with my clients on the psychology of shopping, the good and bad habits they have around shopping, their style personalities and their true, authentic self. It's personal and intimate and the results can be incredibly moving. To ensure my clients have my attention whenever they need I only take on a very limited number of new clients each month.
What's your favourite part of your job?
Once my clients go through their style profiles it's so wonderful to see them really start to get in tune with their fashion identity. I can see the confidence start to grow and most importantly the confusion and frustration start to release. But that's not my favourite part. I love it when we're half way through the wardrobe sort and they start throwing things away themselves because they have such a strong feeling and understanding about what looks amazing and, just as importantly, what doesn't. But that's not my favourite part either... When I take my clients shopping and all the clothes are already picked out and hung in the change room for them. They head in to change and look at the clothes and say, 'I would never have picked that...'. Then they try it on. They open the door, step out, and the smile that goes from ear to ear, the way they hold themselves, the shoulders back, the strut, the stance, the sheer happiness of looking and feeling so incredible. They really see themselves as their best self. That's the moment that I love the most. That's the part when I know I was born to do this.
Anything exciting on the horizon?
We are very excited about the future for SaSS. There are quite a few exciting events coming up! In August I will be hosting the Perth High Tea Event. SaSS will be producing the runways for the event. Eight runways, 10 models, 6 designers over two days. In September I'll be getting married to my dear sweet love. In October SaSS will be producing the runway for the TCFWA & Belmont BEC Small Business Awards Finals. Come November we will start coordinating the runway show on the main stage at one of Perth's biggest women's events next year, details are hush, hush so that's all we can say at the moment. SaSS is about to partner with one of Perth's most amazing up-and-coming labels as Operations & Business Development Director. There's more to come, but some collaborations are still in their infancy, but watch this space!
Any special offers you'd like to share with us?
For the month of September SaSS will take on an extra 2 personal style clients in celebration of the amazing stylish things to come.
