Hi! I am a fashion stylist, blogger and digital communications specialist. Working in the communications industry for over 9 years inspired me to create fashion and lifestyle blog thefashionvault.com.au alongside stylists Janette Lenk from TheStatementLife and Daniella Jukic from We Are Found.

As a stylist, my portfolio  includes an array of creative work including fashion, hairstyle collections, race wear, runway and corporate. I love collaborative work and working one-on-one with clients to ignite and build on their own individual style through wardrobe audits or personal styling sessions.

Shortly after graduating with a Bachelor of Design (fashion) I launched a self-titled evening wear label in Sydney  securing a national evening wear stockist, numerous online boutiques and featured in consecutive editions of  Cosmopolitan Bride.

Today, I work as a fashion stylist, content creator, blogger and of course a mum to my 2 year old.0P6A3246

If you are stuck in a style rut or are in need of a wardrobe cleanse then I would love to help you!

Believe it or not there is an art to having a wardrobe full of clothes that fit, look good and most importantly make you feel good! Despite misconceptions, I won’t make you throw out your clothes just so you have an excuse to go and spend thousands of dollars on a whole new wardrobe (I promise!).

It’s about providing the right guidance to leave you with a wardrobe that suits your individual style, body shape and lifestyle.

I have worked with many different women (and men) in different stages of life and most recently have been able to share my own experience of a changing body shape and lifestyle as a new mum.

Contact me so we can have a chat through your needs and find out the best solution for YOU. Whether it’s booking in a session from one of my packages below or organising a quick phone call for advice – I offer a range of services to suit you.

Wardrobe Audit
This is the best place to start! Assessing your wardrobe will help identify you’re a) personal style b) the items which you no longer wear (and why!) c) the items which are missing to get more out of your existing wardrobe.

Personal Shopping
This session is a perfect follow on from a wardrobe audit to complete your style transformation! Otherwise, perfect for you if you tend to get frustrated when shopping or tend to ‘impulse’ buy, then this is the session for you! I can help you break down all of the reasons why you are making the wrong purchases whilst talking through styles that suit you, your lifestyle and budget.
Do you have a special occasion coming up? Then let me help you find THE perfect outfit including accessories, makeup and hair advice.

Personal Styling Consult – (also available remotely)
Consults can range from a quick phone call to talking through styling an outfit for a special occasion through to a face-to-face consultation to provide advice on personal style, body shape and ensuring your wardrobe works for your lifestyle.

Personal styling services are $75 per hour.

“Hitting the shops with someone as passionate about affordable fashion as Sofia was amazing. She steered me in directions I wouldn’t normally go and helped me to breakout from some outdated fashion rules. It’s worked wonders. I’m loving my new style and am more confident in what I wear plus I know have a better understanding of strategically purchasing items. You have made my future shopping experiences effortless and successful!” New mum – Rowena 2016

“Returning to work after being on maternity leave for 18 months was a daunting prospect. And adding to my stress was also the worry that my style was out of date, and that my body had changed since having my beautiful baby girl.

Sofia went through my whole wardrobe and got rid of anything that no longer suited my shape or wasn’t my style.  On our shopping day, she picked key pieces that made me look and feel amazing! On my first day of work I got so many compliments, which made my transition back to the workplace much less stressful! And even though it’s been many months since I had my wardrobe revamp, I still get compliments on my outfits from my work colleagues daily! Working mumAlison 2016


“I now have some new amazing pieces in my wardrobe and know that I can still feel dressed up in casual clothing. No longer spending hours getting frustrated on weekends because I didn’t have anything casual to wear.

…I didn’t think it was ever possible to find a playsuit that I would look/feel good in, but Sofia’s determination proved me wrong, and now my playsuit is probably one of the most worn pieces in my wardrobe!”  Young Professional – Yasmin  2016
