A blend of empathy, intellect, and sharp curiosity, von Weise’s unflappable voice has the soothing effect of an NPR host—an antidote to the sometimes-grating and intimidating world of fashion.
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.
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.
Just as a personal trainer, nutritionist, or life coach can enrich one’s existence, having a dedicated stylist proves that the right clothes make the woman—and her well-being.
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.
After a quarter decade honing her styling skills for Barneys, major women’s magazines like Elle, Vogue, Vanity Fair, and celebrities (Bruce Springsteen was her first client), von Weise is intent on putting the “personal” back into “personal styling.” Think of her as a chic friend who also happens to be a well-informed and connected fashion editor, giving her clients a deeply customized wardrobe overhaul.
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!
So very helpful to have you come by ... it was a packed day and I was listening and learning. And I agree with your comments! Interesting about masculine/feminine... I tend towards fem but think as you say, there has to be a mix.
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!
Amazing... Lisa, she’s such a HUGE fan of yours. Thank you for taking such great care of her.
I Love what I wore, and felt like a star....thanks to you!
You gave me the most extraordinary reset! I feel amazing!! I’m SO EXCITED!!!!!! You nailed it.
