Praise

I am truly fortunate to work with wonderful clients who often become great friends.  Thank you, I am so thrilled and humbled to receive your positive and heart-felt feedback:

 

“I would like to say a huge thank you to Esma Versace for another successful styling session.  Once again, Esma’s impeccable taste and ability to find the right (and of course, fashionable) outfits to suit my brief of budget and purpose, has been shown to be incomparable.  I keep coming back and am never disappointed.  The experience is also always enjoyable as Esma saves valuable time for me in her innate sense of what to pick out for me.  I look forward to the next change of season or special occasion – I will definitely be engaging her services repeatedly”.
J Clarke, Logan Village 


“For those of you who have never been shopping with a professional stylist, I suggest you schedule a trip immediately. I have just had the most amazing experience and now have an absolutely awesome new selection of clothing that can take me from work to after hours drinks with ease, as well as a wonderful dress for a trip to a ballet matinee, with accessories to match. I gave Esma some very sparse info on what I was looking for, which she then attacked with great gusto and found so many items that I never would have picked for myself, but that looked fabulous on! Thank you for a wonderful experience Esma, can’t wait to do it again for the next season!”
J Clarke, Logan Village


“I met Esma years ago and reconnected with her through Facebook.  I had recently lost 38 kilos and needed to find confidence in going clothes shopping as I was still dressing for the larger person that I was no longer.  Someone had put up a recommendation for a fashion stylist and was referring to Esma and her website frocknet.com.  I contacted Esma and we met for a few hours and immediately we were catching up on the 15 year gap in our lives.  I decided I needed Esma’s help so we met at a later date for a shopping trip.  After 5 hours of trying on lots of clothes, laughing and giggling like school girls, Esma gave me the confidence to shop in clothing stores that I would never have entered and made me feel like I belonged.  She also helped me in choosing different styles and shapes that I would never have picked up from the shelf. This one shopping trip has given me more confidence in myself and my appearance than ever before and I cannot wait for the season to change so we can go back shopping again.”
H McCallum, Bracken Ridge


“Esma brought her charm and sense of humour to a recent staff event attended by our female staff. The brief was ‘tell us your career story, the ups and downs’.  It was refreshing to hear an honest account of how a person might transition from a ‘safe’ job in the city to following one’s dreams.  Esma talked about the leap of faith that is required and overcoming the initial fear only to face it time and again in the journey to following one’s passion.  Esma was down to earth, eloquent and passionate in her presentation and left us wanting to know and hear more, as well as inspired to think about our own life passions and how we might take them on fear and all.”
Regina Wozencroft, Director, Finance & Administration, Knight Frank


“I found Esma through recommendation on social media and I am so very grateful I did. Esma is approachable and made my mum and I at ease straight away. We had a hard task ahead, a dress, plus size for the mother-of-the-groom without seeing or talking to her within a short time frame and Esma worked her magic from make-up to shoes. Shopping trips that are usually marked with tears and a get-away car have now been transformed into a laugh and smile experience that has made us so much wiser and happier to adventure out in the future.  My mum came away with everything she needed on budget and will continue to talk about this for years, we highly recommend Esma and owe her a big thank you.”

“I recently contacted Esma to update my wardrobe to take a holiday on the Sunshine Coast.  It has been over 2 years since my first “make-over” with Esma.   I had very specific requests in that I needed swimwear (2-piece) as well as summer dresses.  Not an easy feat for someone in their late 60s.  We met in the city and we managed to fulfill my list and more – shoes, handbag, jewellery.  Esma makes shopping exciting and she has this wonderful knack of making one feel “special” and confident.  My outings are so much more enjoyable now when I feel “well turned out” and not feeling in those late 60s anymore, especially when friends comment on my clothes and ask where I got them.  Thank you Esma for all your help and friendship, you surely have released the “Cinderella” in me.”
Jean Nelson, Samford


“I have used Esma for 10 years.  She has helped me develop a sense of style and has transformed by wardrobe to be fashionable and functional.  She has saved me a lot of time and money by doing the legwork for me that suits my body shape, budget and lifestyle. I have especially liked the swimwear shopping tips, beauty tips and what not to wear.”
Helen K, Chapel Hill 


“I have been using Esma’s service for over 2 years and it has been a great investment.  I love the service as it saves time and prevents those last-minute mistakes that stay in your wardrobe with the price tag on.  Esma is delightful to work with and has a great understanding of fashion and style.  She listens to your needs and designs wardrobes around your lifestyle.”
Meredith S, Ashgrove 


“It was so nice to enter a new phase of my life with a wardrobe that filled me with confidence.  I love knowing that I can wear anything in my wardrobe and look fresh, styled and sophisticated.  For someone who hates shopping, Esma made the whole experience fun and rewarding.  I will certainly continue to use Esma’s services in the future and recommend her to my friends and family”.
Fiona N, Samford


“After seeing my daughter ‘transformed’, not only by appearance but her confidence and general wellbeing as well by Esma, I decided to follow suit.  I hadn’t shopped for over 5 years since coming to Brisbane from Canberra and had recently retired so I really needed a complete change not only in my clothes but also my attitude.  The shopping was fantastic and Esma also catered to my budget.  Now when I go out to garden club or to meet friends, it is lovely to hear them compliment me on how great I am looking.  I would recommend Esma to all my friends.  Thank you so much Esma.”
Jean Nelson, Samford


“Meeting Esma and allowing her to help me expand my ‘wardrobe’ horizons, was the beginning of a journey that has resulted in increased confidence, weight loss and generally improving my sense of wellbeing. With Esma’s guidance, I have introduced dresses and skirts to my work wardrobe, which for many years consisted only of multiple pairs of black pants and frumpy shirts. I am frequently complemented on my new look and am incredibly grateful to Esma for guiding me so seamlessly through a process that I wasn’t able or willing to go through alone.”
A Maric, Forestdale 


“Esma has an all-encompassing knowledge of fashion and a great ability to understand the needs of her clients.  As a stylist she inspires and transforms”.
RS, Chapel Hill 


 “I would wholeheartedly recommend Esma to anyone looking for a stylist.  Esma helped me to understand my body and taught me how to shop for my shape and size.  She transformed my wardrobe from boring to stylish and helped me to feel good about myself again.   My family and friends are thrilled with the new me.  Thank you so much Esma, I can’t wait for our next session”.
Jane H, Scarborough 


“I have used Esma’s services for the past 5 years and in this time she has transformed my wardrobe and my life.  I run my own business and have little free time and with Esma’s help my wardrobe is full of classic pieces and on-trend seasonal buys.  I love the fact that I never have to say “I have nothing to wear”.  Esma is a joy to work with and has become a valuable friend.  I highly recommend her services.”
Karen Walters, Bulimba
