MARNIE Perl­stein is an eastern sub­urbs-based per­sonal stylist with a pas­sion to help peo­ple from all walks of life dress for suc­cess.

“There’s such a strong con­nec­tion be­tween mood and cloth­ing, which is why I think it’s im­por­tant we put more ef­fort into what we wear,” she says.

From stay-at-home mums to cor­po­rate trav­ellers, Marnie be­lieves hir­ing a stylist is no dif­fer­ent from en­gag­ing the ser­vices of a per­sonal trainer or beauty ther­a­pist.

“It’s def­i­nitely not just for celebri­ties. It’s another form of out­sourc­ing,” she says. “I help peo­ple stream­line their wardrobes, take them shop­ping, do online shop­ping for them and style them for events.”

Marnie is also of­ten hired as a speaker to present work­shops for com­pa­nies on the psy­chol­ogy of fash­ion.

“So much of it is about per­cep­tion, how we feel when we put clothes on,” she says.

“I teach them the rules of dress­ing for your body shape.”

For those look­ing to up­date their wardrobes, Marnie ad­vises start­ing by culling ex­ist­ing items tak­ing up pre­cious cup­board space.

“I can see that peo­ple have repet­i­tive buy­ing be­hav­iour that’s wast­ing their money,” she says.

“I’m there to make sure they can open the cup­board and not fal­ter in the morn­ing.”
