How long does the consultation take?
The initial consultation will take an average of 20-30 minutes depending on what services you are interested in. Jean will spend time getting to know you by discussing your wardrobe preferences and challenges, along with your current lifestyle. She'll also do a quick closet assessment and discuss your goals for the space.
How long does closet styling take?
It depends on the work that needs to be done, however it can range anywhere from a half-day to a couple of days. Since every person, closet and amount of clothing involved is unique, it is difficult to determine exactly how long the session will take, although she can provide an estimated time-range during the initial consult.
How involved will I be in the process?
For Wardrobe Edit & Styling services, you will be actively involved as it is necessary to review and decide the fate of all of the items in your closet.
Organizing and Closet Merchandising is all Jean, however she will walk you through the system and methodology of how things are arranged and organized so it will be easy for you to maintain.
DO I NEED TO CLEAN MY CLOSET BEFORE YOU COME?
Absolutely not. Jean looks past any clutter and only sees the possibilities of what will be. She understands that those "bursting at the seams" closets are impossible to maintain and is there to help.
