LASTLY, PLEASE CLICK THE BUTTON AT THE END OF THE GUIDE TO FILL OUT YOUR PERSONAL STYLE QUESTIONNAIRE. I look forward to working with you to achieve your desired style!
1. Style Assessment (part I & II)
After submitting part I of your style assessment (the questionnaire), we'll start with a HALF-hour wardrobe assessment in your home. I will come in and assess what you currently have in your wardrobe for "wholes" in your style. This will give us a general idea of what we need to buy at a shopping session and what we need to evaluate during a closet audit. We'll get to know each other and plan out your style transformation together. You can also opt to have me assess your wardrobe and create a plan based on that and the information you provided in the questionnaire on my own and send it to you if your schedule is too busy for us to plan together.
2. Closet Audit
Behind every man and woman, there is a hidden style that is just waiting to come out. Let me reveal your authentic style and give you a new wardrobe and a new you! Your closet audit typically takes 2½ hours for a standard closet (not-walk-in) and will vary depending on closet depth, capacity, content, and the number of closets to be audited. Your cooperation in sorting items is an integral part of our session and helps give you a better understanding of your shopping patterns & best closet cleansing practices.
The Closet Audit Experience
Meet At Home
Your closet audit starts and ends with 1 of 3 decisions per piece. Donate/sell. Maybe, Keep. After this cleanse You'll feel like you have a blank canvas to begin a new you. If your schedule does not allow time for an audit, we can discuss breaking up the hours into multiple days.
Make 3 Key Piles
together We’ll go through every single item in your closet and work to make 3 different piles:
Donate/sell - pieces you don't love, don't feel great in, or don't fit the style you're going for now.
Maybe – I will put together a look using that item. If you wear it for a day but don't feel 100% in it, that goes into the "donate/sell" pile.
Keep - These will be your blank canvas pieces. We will add key items to your closet based on these items.
Learn What To Buy
At the end of the audit, you and I will decide which items you need to get in order to fill out your closet and create your desired style.
3.GET YOUR SHOPPING LIST
MOST IMPORTANTLY, I'LL FOLLOW UP WITH A PRIORITIZED SHOPPING LIST WITH SPECIFIC ITEMS IN HIGH, MEDIUM, AND LOW CATEGORIES FOR US TO WORK WITH WHILE WE SHOP. THIS WILL HELP US TO prioritize your budget, SCHEDULE SESSIONS ACCORDINGLY, FOR THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF TIME AND AT THE RIGHT STORES.

Listen to what this client had to say...
My experience working with Mrs. Igah can be described in 2 words priceless and inspiring. Priceless because I've never met another stylist like her and inspiring because her work ethics are phenomenal. I had the privilege of being styled by her and also working side by side as makeup and hair artist on a test shoot. Mrs Igah values every client and is big on equality. Her creative sense is endless and can just about put together something beautiful out if anything. I love JIJANE and look forward to working with her again.
