louise chambers - stylist
Louise has worked in the business of styling and fashion for over 15 years, styling individual clients, media personalities, fashion events, photographic shoots and retail merchandising displays and mannequins.
You don't stay in a business that long unless you love it...and Louise genuinely does.
This permeates her work with personal, retail and corporate clients alike.
Fashion is what we buy, style is what we do with it - it's not always about how much cash we splash on clothes...It's how we wear them.
My initial approach is to share the science of dressing for body shape. I know how this then empowers my clients to feel confident when shopping for clothes and navigating new season trends.
I work to find your personal style while considering lifestyle, budget and existing wardrobe. Wardrobe organisation, blending techniques, accessorising & alteration suggestions, creation of a ‘wardrobe essentials’ shopping list and discussion of trends and how to suitably embrace are all part of the service. I get a kick out of inspiring clients to think outside of the box with their clothing selections and to rock their look with confidence. After all, confidence is the best accessory. When someone asks me how to wear something, I usually reply "with confidence!" See what Louise's clients say here.

The little things matter.
Louise insists on a high standard of presentation with regard to visual displays and mannequin styling - shoes on mannequins, where possible, accessories, correct retailer crediting, clean, thoughtfully styled mannequins designed to appeal to centre demographics with aspirational cues & aesthetically pleasing, harmonistic hues.
Louise doesn't believe in a cookie-cutter approach to visual merchandising for retail centres. She works with Marketing and Centre Managers to understand their fashion sector needs, objectives, demographics and budgets.

I've been fortunate to style fashion parades, publicity and photographic shoots, and media engagements for clients including 1029 Hot Tomato, Magic Millions, NewsCorp, AMP Capital and Channel 7, St Hilda's School.
I've curated looks for Zara Tindall MBE, Mike Tindall, Nacho Figueras, Kendall Gilding, Hamish McLachlan, Francesca Cumani, Candice Dixon and Amanda Abate to name a few.
Happy to work with any client brief, I love any opportunity to flex my creative muscle!
"What you wear is how you present yourself to the world, especially today, when human contacts are so quick. Fashion is an instant language."
Seeing women take pride in the way they present themselves and how they embrace fashion to create their own style and story is something that fascinates me.
I've been priviledged to work as a brand ambassador and guest presenter on Australia & New Zealand's TVSN channel, as a judge and MC for Fashions on the Field events and as an on-air reporter for the Magic Millions & Myer Fashions on the Field, for 1029 Hot Tomato radio station.
I have written contributions for a variety of clients including Magic Millions, Haven & Click Intelligence UK and for my own fashion-focused blog to share my love of style.
"It's silly to be stingy with compliments.
If you see someone and they strike you as beautiful, why not let them know?"
Combining my passion and skill for fashion, personal styling and public speaking, I can tailor engaging masterclasses and workshops for your audience.
As a stylist, my goal is to teach my clients not to need me anymore!
I love the look on women's faces in the audience while presenting workshops. They're truly mesmerised, some even take notes. The gratitude these women willingly make the effort to express after a workshop, is the ultimate reward.
Vibrant and inspired, it's like they've been gifted a fresh perspective and a hidden confidence begins to emerge.
"Don't change to fit the fashion.
Change the fashion to fit you."

CLIENTS & testimonials
Clients I've had the pleasure of working with:
The session was one of the best things that I have done. It has given me the confidence to wear clothes / outfits that I would not have considered previously, and this in turn has a positive flow on effect for my self confidence and sense of self worth.
For me it’s reinvigorated my enthusiasm to make much more of an effort and actually take the time to arrange and plan my wardrobe. In particular, I loved your carefree, down-to-earth approach to shopping and I felt very comfortable in your company and trying different things on.
Thank you for your advice, suggestions and time. I was so appreciative of your generosity and I’m very excited about wearing my new wardrobe pieces.
As Carrie Bradshaw famously said, "I now think of her as St Louise who brought me back to life." Some people are Earth Angels sent when we need them,
Louise Chambers from @stylechambers is one such lady!
I can't thank you enough. You've changed my wife. She had given up. In the 7 years we've been married, I've never seen her so keen to get up and get dressed every morning. Thank you.
