Not only do you have to consider your budget and the occasion you’re shopping for, you also have to take into account other issues such as colours that compliment your skin tone, what cutting flatters your body type and many others.
We totally understand if going through this laundry list of considerations sounds daunting and puts you off shopping, which is why we’re putting the spotlight on various personal shopping services in Singapore, where trained and experienced stylists and image consultants can help you overcome your fashion problems. Plus, you’ll get a tailored service that can help you look good and feel good, without much fuss.
Here are nine places you can go to for help. You can thank us later.
Who are they: Founded by stylist Debby Kwong, sortorial’s motto is “sort out, style up” and she believes in helping clients find silhouettes and materials that they can wear for their body type and lifestyle. In short, Debby dishes out practical fashion advice and ensures that you make smart purchases, while giving you pointers to help you experiment with new trends and styles should you wish to. sortorial also provides other services including wardrobe purging and closet organisation.
How does it work: The personal shopping service is available for both men and women and you would first make a booking via her website www.sortorial.com with at least three days notice. Pick a date and time that suits your schedule and add a note on where you want to shop if you have a preference. Once the appointment has been made, Debby will reach out via email to find what you would like to achieve from the personal shopping session — whether it is for an special occasion, to revamp your style or add more versatility to your wardrobe. Debby will also establish how much you have budgeted for clothing and accessories to gauge what brands and stores you should be shopping at. If you’re strapped for time or prefer shopping online, Debby can help you curate a list of products from your favourite e-stores and brands that she thinks will suit your style and aesthetics.
How much does it cost: $120 for two hours, with each additional hour charged at $60. sortorial also offers a styling subscription service, with one-, three- and six-month options, which allows Debby to continue to offer advice and guidance on future purchases after a decluttering or personal shopping session.
