Elizabeth’s passion is to impart her knowledge of fashion & style to others: “My mission is to make the most out of my client’s individual appearance and improve their look based on the image they would like to project. It is the reward and satisfaction of seeing people’s confidence shine and how they feel after one of our sessions – that is the most meaningful to me.”
