Hi my name is Michelle Macdonald and I have always been interested in Fashion. I studied Fashion and Textiles at Otago University and went on to teach Fashion Design.

Shopping with your personal stylist!
Looking for something different. Come shopping with your own personal stylist, here in New Zealand or Melbourne Australia. Options available for groups or individuals. Maybe you are looking for a special occasion outfit, an update for the new season clothing or a whole new wardrobe. A fun way to spend a weekend, I can meet you there or make the travel and accommodation arrangements for you. A Basic Wardrobe Refresh and consultation beforehand to ensure directions for items to compliment you and your wardrobe is an advantage, but not a requirement. I will have already scouted the shops for you and with my knowledge of where to go we will make the most of your time.
Or send me shopping and I will do all the hard work! I will send you photos of the items for you to approve. With your measurements only minor alterations maybe necessary and I have the skills to complete these for you.
I currently have clients that I do this for and it works really well, likewise when they are out and about I happily receive texts for an opinion on a garment or accessory. As your stylist it’s my job to do the hard stuff and say when the garment you love is not flattering. Also to help keep you focused on what your wardrobe needs to enhance its versatility, e.g not another top when you should be looking for a skirt or dress!
I have a number of clients who would be happy to share their positive experiences.
‘I love fashion and helping people feel confident and fabulous in what they wear’.
