“Louise’s innate and timeless sense of style is a natural fit to complement her Colour Palette Profiling. As a regular client at Bella Donna in Forbes, I often enjoyed Louise’s unique personal service which she developed in the course of her twenty years in the boutique. I still love many of the pieces I selected there with her excellent guidance. I recently booked a colour consultation with Louise at my ‘Go To’ Chapter 2 shopping destination. The workshop included a colour profile, makeup audit, and basic makeup application. I then signed up for a complete personal styling experience, identifying my body shape and proportions, and adapting those characteristics to my personality and lifestyle. For my wardrobe makeover Louise was very systematic and thorough, organising my whole wardrobe on matching hangers in a few short hours, including reinstating some lovely clothes that I had bought from her boutique up to twenty years ago! She definitely has an eye for stylish clothes that will last for decades. Louise identified some key wardrobe items that I was lacking, that would enhance and complete a number of outfits that I already owned, and would bring my whole wardrobe together. She showed me I was wasting money buying clothes that I already owned, just needing to add some staple pieces to make them more versatile. Louise helped me to choose two black jackets, one classic and one ‘fun’, and by mixing & matching them with pieces from my existing wardrobe (thanks to Chapter 2 in Forbes), I came up with 33 new outfits! I was thrilled with the results. I love my new wardrobe – everything colour coordinated, neatly hung, and easy to find – if you can’t find it, you can’t wear it. Louise’s advice is not limited to clothes – she looks at jewellery, glasses, handbags, shoes, colours and even hairstyles – everything that goes to create style.

Louise has given me the confidence to wear items more than one way and to add colour – time and money so well spent!”

“My day with Louise was most enjoyable. I am an artist and designer and understand much about colour, composition, balance, scale, branding etc but Louise’s knowledge and experience, particularly relating to fashion and styling is exceptional. She is very, very creative. Her enthusiasm and joy comes from a genuine passion about helping people look and present the best they can be.
A dignified presentation with a warm, sometimes cheeky delivery of her knowledge on the day, allowed me to take on new thought processes and different ideas. For me there was definitely a few ah hah moments!”

“This was a thoroughly enjoyable and useful workshop. Louise made everyone feel at ease and provided advice that was simple and applicable to everyone’s day to day. Whilst clearly there is more that can be done beyond colour, colour is a great place to start to empower you to dress with confidence. Louise really knows ‘dressing’, this one-day workshop benefits not only with self-awareness on how to dress with confidence, dress for occasion and dress to impress but also provides valuable advice that will help you save money when making new clothes purchases and getting the best out of your current wardrobe.”

“Everything has been fantastic! I learnt so much about – firstly – colour! Colours I thought were ‘my thing’ turned out to be the opposite. And colours I’d never considered ever, truly allow my skin to glow. The right colours make a world of difference, and portray your values. (Secondly) Style: I feel as though I always struggled with style…stumbling through what to wear, what suits me. Ever have an ‘off’ day and cannot decide what to wear? I’ve had many! It was an incredible learning curve to discover the science of dressing right, for my body shape and also my personality. It’s all starting to make sense now. I was glad to receive an incredibly detailed manual from Louise, which provided me with a huge learning curve … and also included many very prescriptive tips for what to do (and what not to do) in order to dress in a flattering and stylish manner – as I really needed to be guided initially, until I could practice and gain a little confidence to then start to find my own way through all the fashion options, so I was very grateful for this wonderful manual. Louise has been a joy to work with, she is so generous with her knowledge and expertise, I cannot recommend her more highly. I feel as though I’ve gained an Auntie-like friend that truly has my back (and my front and sides too, even my feet). Thank you so much Louise!”

“A styling session with Louise Bernardi is time and money very well spent. Her depth of knowledge in being able to identify the best clothes to compliment an individual’s eyes, skin colour and body shape is invaluable. 
I will be able to use the tools she has given me to make better use of my wardrobe and to ensure that any future additions will be purchased with more direction and confidence. 
Louise is passionate about what she does and she is able to impart her knowledge in a generous and caring manner. 
I feel empowered after my session with Louise and can highly recommend her business.”

“I felt relaxed talking with Louise, like an old friend. We touched on many things related to colour, style, and self-expression in your presentation. I will be more discerning with my purchases … think about colour and have fun with it, buy less and have things I can wear and wear.

Thank you for opening my eyes to colour Louise and helping me realise we all need to be comfortable and confident about how we present as a reflection of who we are 
Truly valuable time we spent together.”

“It was great! 8-9/10. Things were said that I never thought of, and Louise definitely knows her stuff. Easy to do over zoom as well. And the pre forms were great.

I learnt about what colours suit me best along with some styling tips. I learnt I need to be less lazy when it comes to clothes because it can really help and make you feel more confident and better about yourself. I even noticed the colours I should be using were great and the colours that don’t I noticed how they do wash me out and aren’t great for me.
Amazing consultation on what colours are best for me. Louise does a great job and knows her stuff. Very well organised and easy over zoom if need be. I would definitely recommend if you feel like trying something new and getting out of comfort zone and feeling better about yourself.”
