Hi! I'm Gulbin, your Personal Stylist
Like many of you I found my style through trial and error over the years.
I grew up as one of the four sisters, in a family immersed in textile and styling and surrounded by glamour and laughter. My mother was a seamstress with an exquisite taste and my father was managing a textile company. Our house was always full of garment samples, sewing machine noise, gorgeous delicate fabrics with amazing texture and striking colours! At every holiday season our mother would design fabulous dresses for us girls. Over the years, what colour dress we would be wearing became a traditional guessing game for the rest of the extended family. They would wait impatiently to see how the trends of the year came to life from my mother Belma's sewing machine. Oh, joy of the past...
I remember clearly the first time I went to shopping on my own to buy a dress with the pocket money I saved. I was only thirteen and my excitement was immense. My loving and clever mother encouraged me to go alone so I could learn to make my own choice and my first lesson in styling myself. A red charming dress perfect for a thirteen year old accompanied me that day and I cherished it for several years.
Inspired by my mother and the magazines my father would often bring home, I've always been the ONE my friends and family came to ask for advice or beg to go shopping with them. After many years, I decided to turn my passion into a growing business. I love empowering women and men and help them find their true style. What I love the most is to see smiling clients, faces lit with excitement and happiness, growing in confidence and self-respect after a great wardrobe makeover session or a shopping trip.
I'm a married mother of two teenager sons and love connecting with my friends and extended family on my free time.
I work with private individuals, businesses, educational organisations and charities. I style corporate executives, those in finance, tech, media, people in the public eye and new mums who want to reclaim their personal style. During my style consultations, I empower my clients to make a great first impression and enhance their image which in turn builds their confidence and performance in everything they do. I deliver my workshops and consultations with passion and energy that inspire participants to invest in themselves, take action and achieve successful careers.
