Departures Magazine Interview
Departures September 2017
How lucky am I to have this incredibly talented woman curate my closet today?! @lisavonweise is so knowledgeable and passionate about what she does you end up feeling as if you’ve been to fashion school and the ashram at the same time. My closet underwent a deep cleanse, in which she gently nudged me to kill some of my darlings, making space for what’s to come. I often tell my students that we have to be willing to let go of what we don’t want in order to make space for what we do want. I’m entering a new phase of life as an author and a mother not of babies but of children. It’s not a time to hold o to things I’ve had since college. It’s a time to expand, try something new and trust the Universe In it’s unfolding. Thank you so much Lisa for guiding me to do this! You are magical!
Lisa is patient and perceptive; she leads by graceful example and lucid explanation. Working with Lisa, Ifound myself becoming ever-more attuned to details—she is conceptually and visually focused. She taught me the values of clear and open communication, impeccable organization, and the necessity of working with a well-defined goal in mind. Lisa navigates relationships with clients and co-collaborators with a warm yet professional poise. A supportive mentor, Lisa is a thoughtful leader who is able to encourage personal growth.
I have been very impressed with your advisory talent. We have seen a lot of stylists in action with and without their clients and I think you are the best I have experienced. Brava.
There isn’t a better stylist and listener than Lisa when it comes to truly knowing what it takes to be a modern woman. As women, we wear so many “different hats,” and Lisa knows just what to pair them with. Her thorough understanding of the complexity of what it takes to shine in today’s world, encouraged me to embrace just that through the voice of personal style. That one title or the other (mother, professional, influencer...whatever it may be!) doesn’t solely define identity, we can be all of those things, and dress for the occasion, in the present. Her support and creative vision reminded me to go against the grain, and embrace being a dynamic being, while also being chic and sophisticated, too! Lisa’s down to earth personality and ability to really get to know and care about her clients created eye opening moments for me, ranging from organizing my wardrobe, to her vision for my apartment. Her energy and talent not only impacts your style, it will help you achieve your life’s goals.
I LOVE the soul and depth that you have very rightly given your work. You have just the right balance of style and spiritual.
Lisa von Weise’s name was brought up to me; she is a stylist at Vogue...We met and I just liked her vibe! She got me right away, and I TRUST her. We’ve been working together for five years, and she’s definitely made me look better! I’ve discovered clothing and brands previously outside my comfort zone thanks to Lisa.
I would adore for you to go through closet with me so we can edit. You’ll know my taste and can find things going forward! It’s really fun and eye opening working with you. And you’re very patient and kind, to boot!
You changed my life!! I have never felt so well in my clothes, so clear in my being....all thanks to you.
To be completely honest, your advice that day — what you said while we walked in the rain — was so simple yet so profound and it turned a lightbulb on for me. It was something that was confusing me for awhile now, and you just made it so clear for me! A profound moment of clarity, THANK YOU!
I am thrilled to work with you. You are super intelligent, and insightful, and really a joy to have met!
