My name is Leigh Sussman. I worked as a choreographer, dancer and theatre designer before I started My Dream Wardrobe in 2013. At that time, I was a new mom with a new body. I realised I wasn't the only one struggling to dress myself. I now use all my expertise and personal experience to help my clients.
My passion is helping people transform their lives by starting from the outside, by transforming their looks. Fashion and style are powerful tools. They can alter the way others see you and can drastically alter how you feel about yourself. If you look good on the outside, you will feel good on the inside, and that feeling will radiate as you interact with others.
The way I work is constantly adapting based on research that I do. For example, I am interested in the work of Heather Widdows, an academic from Birmingham University. Her book "Perfect Me, Beauty as an ethical ideal,"explores the changing nature of the beauty ideal, showing how it is more dominant, more demanding, and more global than ever before."
With this in mind, I work in a way that showcases each of my clients because I believe that every person is truly amazing. A miracle. Special. As such, I tailor-make packages for each client, who range from students to corporate lawyers. I see myself more as a life coach rather than just a stylist and work with you closely to create not just a Dream Wardrobe, filled with the right clothes and accessories, but also a dream mindset. Working from the outside in, I get you to celebrate yourself everyday.
Now let me help you to create your Dream Wardrobe.
"You made it quick, painless & enjoyable. Thanks!"
Glenn Silverman, Business Consultant and Media Personality
"A week after having a baby, I had other things to worry about rather than finding the perfect outfit for my baby’s bris. Leigh went shopping FOR ME! And she found me the most stunning dress(es) (I kept the ones I didn’t land up wearing)
This service is an absolute win if you can’t or don’t want to trawl through clothes racks at shopping malls! Life changing!! And did I mention she has incredible style herself... which helps with this sort of thing."
Gaby Katz Sutton, Lawyer and new mom
"Your build so much trust in your clients. It makes it so easy for me to work with them.
Doron Lurie, Custom Thread Tailors
"We are so very grateful to you for the hard work that you put into this. You have been exceptionally gracious under sometimes very stressful situations and a consummate professional." Nicole Capper, CEO of Mango-OMC
"Hiring a personal stylist turned out to be a wonderfully rewarding experience, which I deeply recommend. While it may not have been the easiest hour of my life, it was certainly one of the most enlightening. Like many other challenges, my wardrobe worries were resolved with the perfect ingredients: a caring advisor; honest self-reflection and a good old tape measure."
Dina Hendler, W24
"I can vouch for this service. It was more like therapy."
Limor Esakov, Entrepeneur
"Thank you for all your help. I get a helluva lot of compliments!" Michelle Blumenau, PR consultant
"For those of you who feel you have a cupboard full of clothes and nothing to wear, or aren't sure how to dress for your body, My Dream Wardrobe is THE way to go!!"
