"YouLife.Styled."

My name is Ashley Miner, and I am a fashion merchandizer and personal stylist based in Toronto, Ontario. I live and breathe fashion, both as a passion and a profession. I am also the owner and founder of Elbrook Personal Styling, a personal shopping and styling company that caters to men and woman based in and around Toronto.

A word about Elbrook Personal Styling:

At Elbrook fashion is our passion. Whether you share that passion or view fashion simply as a necessity for image enhancement, we can assist you in developing a personalized wardrobe to match your unique personality and lifestyle.

To help you get started, Elbrook offers a variety of packages and services that can be tailored to your individual budget, lifestyle, and personality. Some of these services include style identification, wardrobe consultation, closet organization, personal shopping, wardrobe development for students as well as new and seasoned professionals, and styling for special occasions.

Below you will find a description of some of our most popular packages and services; however, we are completely flexible as we know that style is very personal, so contact us any time to discuss how we can design a customized styling package tailored exactly to your needs and budget.

Services

STYLE IDENTIFICATION

Personal styling is an individualized process that requires a close and trusting relationship between you and your stylist. At Elbrook Personal Styling we believe that it is essential for you to feel comfortable with your stylist and our approach to styling. For this reason the starting point for all of Elbrook's packages and services is an initial consultation with your certified fashion stylist in order to get to know one another.

During this initial consultation you and your stylist will:
i) discuss your goals, fashion needs, and what you expect to achieve from your
styling sessions;
ii) identify your personal style using our unique Elbrook Style Questionnaire;
iii) take you personal measurements and identify your body type to ensure that
your wardrobe consists only of items that flatter and emphasize your unique
features; and
iv) discuss your budget since the perfect wardrobe is not only chic and fashionable
but also affordable.

Duration: approx. 1-2 hour(s)

Cost: The initial consultation is designed to allow you to become comfortable and familiar with Elbrook and our unique approach to personal styling. It is provided without risk or obligation to you. If, at the conclusion of the first half hour of the consultation, you do not wish to work with Elbrook, there is no financial obligation.
If you do decide to move forward with one of Elbrook's signature packages or services, the cost of the consultation is included in the package price, and you and your stylist with finish out the consultation in full.
Alternatively if you would like the full benefit of a consultation with an expert but are undecided about which package or services work best for you, the cost of the consultation is only $55.00. At the end of this consultation you will have a basic yet thorough understanding of your personal style, body type, and measurements, as well as how Elbrook can work with you to achieve you style goals.

PACKAGE 1: SHOPPING CHEZ-VOUS
"the hottest boutique in town is just beyond your closet door"

This package is designed for the individual who has a closet full of clothes but still feels like he or she has nothing to wear. It consists of three styling sessions:

During the Wardrobe Editing session you and your stylist will sort through your current wardrobe and, based on the results of your Style Identification session, decide together which pieces you should keep, which should be tailored, and which might be eliminated.

Your stylist can also help you cash in on your closet by identifying pieces that may not be quite right for your personal style but are perfect for consignment. Elbrook works closely with a luxury consignment boutique in Toronto and is intimately familiar with the consignment market, so your stylist can assist you in the consignment process.

Session 3: Closet Organization (2 hours)

Now that you and your stylist have identified your personal style and edited your wardrobe accordingly, your stylist will help you organize your closet for optimum efficiency.
