THE BESPOKE CLUB
I am a business owner and have little time to shop or prepare a work wardrobe with my busy schedule.
Although I still don’t have much spare time, this is no longer reflected in the state of my wardrobe. Having enlisted The Bespoke Dresser to manage my ‘professional look’ for several seasons now, each time I show up to a business meeting, visit a client or feature as a guest on TV3s The Cafe, I am always smartly dressed. The changes she influenced in the way I dressed, although subtle - have had a lasting and positive effect on myself and my business.

A friend had told me about her Bespoke dressing experience and how much more confident she felt after her wardrobe makeover. I’d taken down the number of her dresser Yvette but didn’t make contact for ages as I wondered how much time it would involve and whether I’d feel comfortable with her. My body shape had changed after having children and I needed a new work and casual look to suit the image I now wanted to portray. I also had the usual Christmas functions coming up and my brother’s wedding… and nothing to wear!
I finally made that call to Yvette and from the moment I met her, I felt at ease. She really listened to what I needed, took me to new shops that I didn’t know about and seemed almost telepathic about what I was looking for. She organised for items that weren’t available in-store to be couriered out to me, organised garment alterations and delivered those to me at lightning speed. Nothing was too much trouble for her. It wasn’t hours of arduous shopping either, it was fun and didn’t take nearly as long as I thought as Yvette had pre-shopped and knew exactly where we were going. What I’ve valued the most is that I now look forward to getting dressed in the morning! I absolutely love everything we have purchased together and I feel so confident wearing my new outfits. I think what you wear is so important as it reflects who you are and how you’re feeling, I love what Yvette has been able to do for me. If you haven’t worked with The Bespoke Dresser before, it is amazing. I highly recommend it!

I first started working with Yvette nearly three years ago. Yvette's strength in communication makes her a pleasure to work with and means that she gets to know her clients on a non-superficial basis, which I really appreciate. The entire time I have felt comfortable that Yvette understands who I am as a person and what I am trying to achieve with my styling.

It's my absolute pleasure to write this testimonial for Yvette, The Bespoke Dresser. Yvette has transformed the way I think about my wardrobe and about clothing in general. I now have absolute clarity about the image I wish to portray. Yvette has a Bespoke process that I can only describe as insightful, supportive and collaborative. She has a wonderful approach and leaves you feeling positive about yourself and your personal style. Generous to a fault, Yvette will not pressure you into anything and makes sure you're comfortable with all decisions about your image and the style choices you make. Her shopping service is excellent. She totally understood my style as evidenced by the preselections she'd made for me. The sessions I've spent with her have all been positive, fun and incredibly worthwhile.
I cannot recommend Yvette highly enough."

Going shopping with Yvette is an absolute delight - she took all of the anxiety away that I usually have about choosing clothes and shopping in general. Without being able to articulate what I wanted for my wardrobe - just by asking a few questions she knew exactly what I was looking for. Yvette had selected pieces that suited my lifestyle, body shape, workplace, and personal style to a tee! She made me feel so comfortable - she would tell me when items looked great, but best of all, she’d tell me when we could find better. Thank you so much to my Bespoke Dresser, I love my new clothes! I highly recommend booking with her!

Looking in my wardrobe each morning had become an underwhelming affair.
The variety, appeal and quality of pieces in my wardrobe had been decreasing in proportion to the increase in my waistline.
Intro… Bespoke dressing! Uninspiring clothes have now been replaced with quality items from designer, boutique, and mainstream stores. A few investment pieces quickly became favourites. Now I have many outfit choices, including accessories which are interesting and most are guaranteed to get compliments. The process was fun and what would have taken me weeks to achieve was covered in just one shop! At each destination a rack of clothes would be waiting for me to try on - avoiding the frustration of finding the perfect item and it not being in my size. With Yvette having figured the agenda and doing the driving I could relax. At day's end it was exciting looking at all the bags and boxes, trying to recall what would be in each - like the best Christmas!!
I highly recommend Yvette and The Bespoke Experience.

A big thank you to my Bespoke Dresser who helped me create amazing new profile photos for my business website. My goal was to have new profile pictures that I could use across social media platforms for Lifestyle Cover NZ Ltd. Yvette assisted me with everything involved to create these; from the detailed consultation in the Bespoke Experience, our fun shopping tour through local designer boutiques in Newmarket to hair and makeup, photography and edits. I loved the whole experience! I highly recommend her to anyone wanting styling advice, a new wardrobe or someone looking for a polished look. Thanks Yvette for your dedication and hard work, it really shows in the perfection of everything you do.

My experience with Yvette was life changing. I always thought I looked okay, but I never felt amazing in the clothes I wore. Yvette looks at the whole picture, it’s not just about the clothes but about finding who you are and where it is you want to go with your personal styling. I felt she focused on the whole image of me and not just the material aspects. Having a Bespoke Dresser guide me on the shopping tour led me to looks I can wear with much more confidence. The clothes I got with Yvette are my favourite looks in my wardrobe. I wear them all the time and have had comments on every single piece. I am truly grateful for the time I spent with Yvette and the continuous friendship we now have.
