She gives people the understanding and skills to dress fashionably in clothing that suit their shape, size, personality, and lifestyle. From classic to avant-garde; whatever the style, she can create it! Particularly skilled in predicting current trends, Aaliyah works with today’s fashions, styles, and colors, to create ‘looks’ and new season wardrobes for her clients that enable them to wear “trendy” pieces in ways that suit their comfort level and body type. Accentuating the positive and keeping fashion fun are just about the only rules that are carved in stone in Aaliyah’s fashion handbook!
