Wardrobe inventory:
understanding the past to plan the future

Reviewing your wardrobe is a fundamental preparatory step in optimizing the results of the Personal Shopping Trip.
RF asks you to keep daily style notes over the course of 1-4 weeks before the Wardrobe Styling day in order to evaluate the clothing that is predominantly worn.

The first stage is a discussion of your current style in order to understand your garment purchasing history. This is followed by a thorough audit of your existing wardrobe, which will help you appreciate the changes gradually implemented by the service.
