My name is Angélique (Angie for short), and the co-founder and voice of Youlookfab. I’m Dutch by nationality, grew up in Hong Kong, and I’ve also lived in South Africa, France and the United States. I studied Psychology and Fashion Design. I’ve been in the Rag Trade since 1992, and wouldn’t have it any other way. Before starting YLF in 2006, I spent 14 years in the fashion industry abroad, predominantly as a specialist retail buyer for ladies’ wear.
When I’m not immersed in YouLookFab (YLF) I’m working as a fashion stylist for individual clients in Seattle, WA and also further afield. My client base ranges from sizes 0-40 and ages 16 to 88. Their style personas, body types, and sartorial preferences are extremely varied, which keeps things interesting and diverse. My clients describe me as unflappable because there is a solution for every style challenge. I work hard, and my clients work hard too. But we laugh as hard as we work, and get things done, so I’m normally forgiven for that. I absolutely love what I do.
My wardrobe consulting business allows me to work with clients one to one, but YLF allows me to offer advice to a much larger audience. I would love for you to join the discussion by commenting on my posts or contributing in the forum. Your respectful opinions are always appreciated.
