Hi, my name is Nina and I am the lead stylist at Style Gorgeous.
I felt 'blah' about my style for most of my teens and twenties. I knew I needed to find my style - I felt like people misunderstood me, and I wanted to excel in my career.
My love of design propelled me to find ways to understand style. I wanted to love my style, nothing less.
In the end I spent thousands of dollars on educating myself and experimenting with style. I examined thousands of outfits as people walked past me in Sydney, Melbourne, London, Paris, Milan and other cities around the world.
Then in my early 30s I started receiving compliments on my style and people started asking me for advice. I realised I had worked it out.
In January 2017, I received my styling certification from LA's School of Style and started Style Gorgeous.
Today it is an absolute honour to help women be seen for who they are and what they can bring.

A few years after some very tough life events I felt ready to kick off my “I’m barely-surviving” suit and re-discover the joy I find in fabulous colourful jewellery and beautiful bright fabrics.
Nina is warm and gentle and she made me feel so well looked after. She listened and asked questions until she understood what I wanted to achieve.
I was unsure but I just leapt in and I am so glad I did. I understand why this isn’t a process that you can’t take yourself on - having that wealth of knowledge, experience and support makes all the difference.
I had been struggling with loving my clothes - I felt I was wasting money - getting way more misses than hits. It felt like a big step to use the services of a Personal Stylist, however after seeing such brilliant results for women who had used such services, I knew it was time for me to do this. I spent less than half of my shopping budget; I got way more than I expected to - and I love every single thing.
Style Gorgeous was definitely the right choice for me. From the very first phone call, I was surprised, delighted, and super impressed. I have already recommended Style Gorgeous to at least 50 women, and I will be recommending to 5000 more!
My styling experience with Nina has been awesome;) I found Nina to be warm, open and professional. She is an expert stylist with a pragmatic approach and great people skills. Understanding my style and colours has made such a huge difference to how I feel about myself- and it’s not just about confidence, I feel much more aligned with myself and that is such a wonderful feeling:)
Nina helped me refresh my wardrobe and colours. She was very easy to work with and totally flexible with timings. She helped me pick out some fabulous pieces and taught me how to combine them to make my own personal style. Shopping was a breeze because all I had to do was try on the pieces she selected. Nina is great to work with and I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone wanting a new look or an update to your wardrobe.
Nina, you were wonderful at being so flexible, open-minded and receptive to anything I presented, including the limited time and opportunity I had for shopping. It was amazing to see that you could assess and change to suit once we had finally met in-the-flesh as well.
I felt like you listened and prepared superbly given I wasn't exactly sure what I needed myself. I really appreciated the clear communication lines from the very beginning. I think you did very well to pick up on my essential needs even though I was uncertain this one trip should include that too. Very cool! When I unpacked and showed my husband my purchases, he was very impressed with the choices of jackets (especially my most expensive item; which he adores).
Thank you for being my wonderful support person during my journey of re-discovery! It's been a fantastic trip and I look forward to working with you again.
The experience was so, so wonderful! I felt completely at ease, listened to and encouraged throughout the whole process!
I felt so much more confident in myself and my ability to present myself how I want to feel. Nina was so encouraging and so great at drawing out my personality and what looked and felt great for me.
Thank you so so so much Nina!!!
I didn't know what to expect to be honest and it was so much more than I could ever have imagined getting to meet Nina and see her passion for helping others. Give it a go! You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!
I was feeling uninspired with what I had in her wardrobe, I had no confidence. I was stuck in a weird place of "I don't' knows" It felt like everything I put on wasn't good or wasn't right!
Nina's prior-to-shopping process was so necessary to go through - to discuss what colours will work for me, how to learn that and how to use them. Getting heaps more confidence - by going through my wardrobe and ditching all the clothes that didn't work for me. Combined has helped me identify what my wardrobe is! I loved that I didn't have to explain it to her - she just figured it out and simplified it all for me. Now I feel confident experimenting with heaps of new items, fits, and colours.
I can't recommend it enough.
Nina’s gentle, informed approach completely won me over. The resulting colour palette was perfect for me, despite my strong desire to have it otherwise. Since changing colours I am thrilled to be receiving compliments AND I now dress with confidence.. every day! Take the ride and en joy the results.
Before I worked with Nina, I had a wardrobe full of clothes that were nice enough, but I didn't feel good about them, and I wasn't exactly sure why I wasn't reaching for them. It was that classic problem of "nothing to wear". I kept buying clothes to solve this problem, but still didn't feel like I was building a wardrobe I loved. Things that seemed great in the shop when I tried them on, I often changed my mind about later and never wore. When I started working with Nina, all of this changed. I got clear guidance on what would work for me and what wouldn't (in terms of colour, body shape and style), along with support to assess the clothes I was considering buying to make sure they would work for me. This is going to save me so much money in the long run. I finally knew what my personal style was, because Nina amazingly managed to distil my tastes (in terms of personal style) into one accurate sentence, based on the homework exercise I did. This was so valuable and meant that buying clothes was much less 'hit and miss'. I finally knew what my own style was all about, rather than guessing and often allowing in clothes that weren't really 'me'. I also loved the pre-shopping that Nina did for me. I hate clothes shopping but she took the pain out of it by finding clothes that I would never normally try on, in shops I would normally never go into - and many of the pieces she chose were amazing. It was eye-opening and I have become more open now to trying things on rather than just automatically writing things off before I've tried them. If you are considering Nina's styling services but unsure, I think you won't regret it if you decide to go ahead. Life is too short to wear clothes and colours that you don't love. Nina has finally given me the confidence to say no to stuff that looks just 'OK' and stop compromising. I have had loads of compliments on my new wardrobe & feel fabulous when I wear my new clothes. I look forward to working with her in the future.
I had a wardrobe overflowing with clothes and nothing to wear! The best part of working with Nina was having the big wardrobe cleanout, letting go of the guilt of bad purchases and clothes I no longer fit into and seeing existing items of clothing in a new light. I also gained confidence in building and selecting outfits from my remaining wardrobe and buying new items to complement my wardrobe. The whole experience was liberating, all under the guidance of the kind, non-judgmental, lovely Nina :), which helped me get out of my comfort zone.
I wish I could rate Nina 6 stars! I went to her because I felt completely clueless and overwhelmed when I went clothes shopping, but after a few sessions, Nina has transformed my image to reflect my personality. She has great taste and explains style tricks/tips/rules in a way that is fun and easy to understand. Everything she does is so personalised and I love the end result. I can't recommend her enough!
I contacted Nina because I felt like my wardrobe needed a lift and I didn't quite know how to do it or where to start. From the minute I contacted Nina she made me feel at ease and comfortable with the process, which like she says on her website will be fun, it was! The process Nina takes you through will teach you about colour, what suits you and she will even share some great styling tips. I had a great time shopping with Nina and got some great new clothes for my wardrobe and I am certain I will be booking another shopping trip in the future. Thanks Nina.
Nina was great through the whole process, taking the time to really listen to the look I wanted to achieve to suit my personality and reflect it in my clothes choices. I had come to a standstill with my wardrobe and couldn't see what was right for me anymore. Nina helped me with what shapes were flattering and the colours that suited me best which was amazing to then experience how focused your shopping could then be armed with that knowledge! Nina is a lovely lady and fun to go shopping with! I enjoyed the whole experience and would highly recommend her. My whole attitude is changing towards how I put an outfit together. Having the tools and being able to make better choices has really helped my confidence. Thanks Nina!
Style Gorgeous came highly recommended to me and I can see why! I just had a fantastic video call session with Nina, who I found extremely knowledgeable and engaging. Her service was value added and I'm excited to explore her ideas for my wardrobe and styling.
Nina at Style Gorgeous is incredible. I had a unique request and she was able to tailor her service to what I needed in both personal styling and to benefit my business. Nina is professional, respectful, willing to go above and beyond and the value her knowledge and skill has brought both to my personal styling and for my customers as a fashion designer/seamstress has been well above what I paid. Highly, highly recommended.
From the outset Nina was professional. She was through in her approach and followed up an email with a phone call to ascertain what we wanted from our session. Nina listened to what we wanted to achieve and took us to places we would never have found on our own. She identified what colours suited us and made it so easy to find things that worked. Her knowledge of foot sizing was invaluable as buying boots was part of our brief. We had an amazing shopping experience with Nina and had so much fun in a relaxed way. Highly recommend Nina.
I knew what I liked & didn’t want to lose those clothes. However, Nina facilitated a great session where she concentrated on what I liked and who I am. Nina's service was over and above what I was expecting. It was so detailed, i.e. Pre-service questions, pre-shop, wardrobe assessment, after care service. She was also very respectful. I think it's great value for anyone who wants to improve their self image and find more confidence in looking good for any occasion.
Nina helped me to define and express my style after losing quite a bit of weight, by having a look at my existing wardrobe, my style icons, and establishing my colours and body shape. I now have a more direct style, knowing what suits my parameters. My shopping is easier now. I know exactly what to look for, colours, style and favourite shops. I can confidently wear my new look and totally rock it! People comment on how good I look now! Nina has the gift of the gab when it comes to making her clients feel and look great about themselves by quantifying their features and working with them to achieve a result that will create a wonderful confidence that radiates to show the results she has achieved! I have already recommended Style Gorgeous to friends and colleagues.
A post baby body change left me confused with what suited me and lacking in confidence with what to put together. Nina completely sorted me and my wardrobe out. Nina taught me how to complete and accessorize the right looks to make the most of my post baby body. And shopping with her was so fun! I have a few new pieces too and I feel fabulous and have my confidence back!
Nina is an amazing stylist. Whether you are looking to get up to date with the styles this season, dressing for success or looking to find out what kind of style flatters your body type and skin tone - Style Gorgeous is the place. Nina has an incredible eye for detail, colour and shape, this is what makes her stand out of the crowd. I totally recommend her to anyone.
Choosing Nina as my stylist was one of the best investments I made over the last year! I knew what looked good on me but my styling range was so narrow and predictable - I wanted to change things up. Nina has an amazing eye for what's flattering and what's merely meh. Her genuine and non-judgmental approach made me feel comfortable to open up my wardrobe for her to help me create new outfit combinations and go shopping with me. I highly recommend Style Gorgeous!
What a pleasure working with Nina - I have cleaned out my wardrobe to a third of what it is and I have more to wear! Nina really knows her stuff and I have learned how to work with my wardrobe, shape and style and looking forward to wearing new colours! Thanks Nina!
I decided to work with Nina because I wanted to get a few good outfits for work and maybe casual/going out, and learn what suits my figure and what I can feel comfortable in. The best thing about my new clothes and outfits is I know that they suit my body type and they are the right colours for me. That means I feel comfortable and more confident. My workmate complimented me on Monday when I wore two of the new items. I would recommend Nina to anyone that mentions they aren’t so confident with shopping and have similar struggles that I have. I have already mentioned her to a lady at work!
My partner had a great time with Nina, thought her advice in clothing was excellent and thoroughly enjoyed her shopping trip.
