Dress for yourself FIRST
And others second
And others second
Christina Robért is a Melbourne-based Image Consultant and Personal Stylist. She works with clients all over Australia, and Internationally.
“I’m driven by creating the ultimate style for you. The latest trends don’t make for a truly remarkable style. Fashion itself is simply a tool to bring to the image and the feelings that you desire, into reality.”
My role is to create an image that best represents your personal style, and align it with the message you wish the world to see.
I don’t believe in hiding who you are, but styling exactly who you are.
If I have only one mission in life, it’s to use my skills and life experience to show you how beautiful you are, and that your differences are beautiful. Your differences make you, you.
As a little girl, I experienced an accident that left me battling severe body-confidence issues. My self-esteem was one of comparing myself to others. I could only see only flaws. I had little self-belief, and couldn’t experience any beauty in myself.
There was a never-ending war in my mind and heart. I fought my way through year after year of body dysmorphia, eating disorders, and a society where I compared myself to supermodels. It wasn’t until my adult years that it came to me like an ‘Epiphany’… that…. spending your precious energy trying to hide what you don’t like about yourself is no way to exist. We must highlight, emphasize, and celebrate our best, and let go of fighting what we can’t change.
I knew I wanted to help others, spreading the message that each of us owns an incredible and unique beauty. Our differences, the marks life has left on us, only add to our beauty and essence. I call them our ‘BEAUTY SCARS’. Who said that scars aren’t beautiful, or that you have to fit in certain gender or physical identity? Who said that beauty must be measured by limiting, outdated standards?
Shouldn’t we celebrate who we are? Yes! Of course, we should. Every day. By expressing our personal style, we write our own rule book. We celebrate who we are. When I see my client’s joy when they gaze into the mirror and see themselves dressed and styled in a manner that exceeds what they thought possible, I know I chose the right path.
Christina has previously worked in the corporate arena and grew her own business as a jewelry designer. She has worked with fashion houses, such as Zimmerman, SABA & Bettina Liano, as well as creating her own range. Her designs have been worn by incredible women, such as Danni and Kylie Minogue, Elle McPherson, Naomi Watts, and Rachael Weitz, and have been featured in editorial shoots for publications including Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, and InStyle.
Did you know that?
…your visual appearance influences other’s perception of your financial success, authority, trustworthiness, intelligence, and suitability for hire or promotion…
Creating your ULTIMATE image
“When we put on a piece of clothing we cannot help but adopt some of the characteristics associated with it, even if we are unaware of it.” Professor Karen J. Pine, University of Hertfordshire (U.K.)
To do you justice, your image must be strong, authentic, and speak for who you are and what you stand for. If you are reading this, you are most likely aware of the term ‘Personal Brand’. A vital part of your overall image is the visual component; how you present yourself, from head to toe. This actually can’t be understated. As an entrepreneur or business person, you may have the best offering; you may be incredible at what you do, standing head and shoulders above others… BUT…. if your visual image is not so great, then the rest of your ‘Brand’ can be seriously affected, despite all the big efforts you put into your business.
