PERSONAL STYLING

As a personal stylist for private clients, I focus on body, gender, and sexual positivity, elevating their personal style rather than reinventing it. I believe strongly in body-positive, inclusive approaches to fashion, and encourages clients of all sizes, genders, ages, etc. to contact me with your unique style needs.

  • Virtual Style Assessment:

    Want hit refresh on your style and try some new options, but don't have the time for one of the in person packages? Contact me to get your style quiz, customized style inspiration board, and sourced by a stylist online fashion options that suits your body, your goals, and your budget.

    Closet Edit:

    Don't have the budget for an entirely new wardrobe? Let's work with what you have! In a closet assessment, we will shop your closet to maximize the style potential of what you already own. The process includes an interview/quiz to determine your curated style, closet review where we keep what works and donate the things not working for you, address any fit issues if requested (see "Get a Custom Fit" below), and make a list of wardrobe staples to incorporate into your wardrobe when the budget allows.

    Personal Shopping:

    Once we determine your style, and edit your closet, you may be in need of some new clothes! Living in San Francisco doesn't leave much spare time for most of us, so let me take out the guess work in shopping in stores and online for you. An expert knowledge of in-store sizing, handling returns, and maximizing quality for your budget, will make your shopping experience laborless.

    Image Remix:

    Feeling like it's time for a Madonna reinvention moment after a big life shift? We'll take your personal style, and elevate it to it's boldest fashion potential. This is the most comprehensive package that includes a "Virtual Style Assessment", "Closet Edit", and "Personal Shopping" into one package. Add the "Get Tailored" to this package, and you'll have a completely new wardrobe that is tailor fit to your body.

    Get Tailored:

    Love the blazer but it needs a little adjustment? With over 12 years in specialized fitting experience, my motto is that the clothes should fit YOU, not the other way around. With two personal fitting appointments, we will first fit all garments to your body, then send alterations off to be tailored, and reunite for a final fitting where we confirm how GREAT you look in your tailored pieces! This package can be applied to any of the above style packages.

    Photoshoot:

    Want to be featured on Instagram? After you choose your style package, we'd love to feature your new look! We're not professional photographers, but we do know how to make you look great. Check out others featured on our Instagram for more info.!

COSTUME DESIGN

I have worked in theatre, performance art, and education as a costume designer for the past 12 years. As an interdisciplinary academic, I bring in the language of art, art history, and theatre arts into my in depth research, and cues for visual literacy as a key tool in storytelling. My unique approach to design focuses on new technologies in rendering and management to further allow for the flexibility in shifting artistic environments. Above all else, costume design should have strong visual cues that bridge the text with contemporary audiences.

CONTENT CREATION

As a personal stylist and designer, I find it's so important to stay engaged in the art and fashion worlds. On this blog, you'll see posts on what's happening in my career, and what's inspiring me in the world with my intersectional, feminist, and graphic sensibilities for design. For more on my content creation mission, check out this blog post.

On my Instagram (@ChristinaDinkelDesign), I post looks that encourage bold fashion choices, and ignores fashion conventions. As a petite, curvy style blogger, I aim to promote looks that provide similar options for all body types (plus, petite, tall, straight size) when possible. Most of all, my content hopes to inspire alternative representations in fashion storytelling, by ditching fashion rules, traditional portraiture, and the patrarchy, for sure!
