More about me
I am coming from a small Eastern European country called Moldova. One of the aspects of my cultural background is that you have to look good and dress the part no matter the occasion. My parents made fashion an important part of my upbringing. I remember how on Sundays we would traditionally go to the local market and that would be the best occasion to dress up and socialize. Later on, I would go shopping with my mom and she would spend her savings on buying me the most coveted dresses and outfits. What we could not find in stores, she would have custom tailored for me. Tartan pantsuits paired with wool hats, satin long dresses worn with lacquer red shoes for special occasions and so on…
My official relationship with fashion started ten years ago when I earned my Communication and Media Science Bachelor’s degree with my final paper focusing on fashion as an interpersonal and business communication tool. Later on, I started writing about fashion, covering events, celebrity style, international fashion trends and shopping. Hosting styling workshops and helping private clients as well as consulting for corporate clients was my main focus.
A new start
In 2013, I moved to Calgary, starting a new chapter in my personal and professional life. Wardrobe Detectives came to light naturally in 2014 when I realized I had to start it all over from scratch and continue my journey as a personal stylist and fashion consultant. In just a couple of years, I elevated my brand and managed to help several clients achieve their best image.
More about Wardrobe Detectives
I believe that the best way to earn my clients’ trust as a personal stylist and personal shopper is to be transparent and accessible. As a result, the idea of a blog came to life. Wardrobe Detectives is a platform to showcase my style vision and expertise, a source for my clients to understand if they identify with my fashion sense and direction. This blog is my official business card.
Many studies have found that better-looking people tend to earn more and enjoy more success among peers, within the workplace and business. I believe that each person is unique and has amazing potential. My mission is simple:
“Help clients develop a personal style and functional wardrobe by providing accessible high-quality fashion-consulting services.”
To sum up, here is how I make it happen: we assess the current status of your wardrobe and help you build towards a complete, versatile and functional style. As a result, you end up having a wide range of fabulous outfits for any occasion.
“I am trying to break some big misconceptions about having a personal stylist. You don’t have to spend a fortune to look good. My services are accessible to every person. Personal style should be affordable and democratic!“
