‘The Rise of The Capsule Collection’ and how 1x clever marketing image attracts personal styling clients.
In this episode, I’m chatting with Jessica Ryan who is a Multi Award Winning Personal Stylist and Fashion Curator and mum of two based in Gippsland, Victoria and has built her successful business based on her ability to curate and style the ideal capsule wardrobe.
After over a decade of working in the retail fashion industry Jess developed a curiosity for women’s consumer behaviour and what exactly makes the perfect ‘curated wardrobe’.
She experimented with the art of curated wardrobing herself, living with 40 piece wardrobe for 3 years; to prove you can develop a balance between fashion obsession and mindful shopping.
We talk about how Jess tapped into this niche and marketed it beautifully using a powerful visual image of ‘The Rack’.
