Community member Victoria Prince is helping Jewish women dress conservatively without comprising their style.
Her styling business PrinceDressed offers start to finish wardrobe services including reorganising, styling, and personal shopping experiences.
Prince told The AJN, “I offer an approachable, personalised service that is focused on suiting the client’s unique individual circumstances. I am motivated to help women find outfit options in their existing closets as well as supporting them in purchasing clothing pieces that will integrate into their wardrobes.”
She explained that her services can range from anything between helping clients find an outfit for a special event to a complete wardrobe overhaul.
“Having worked in the fashion industry for over 10 years I have lots of experience in understanding client behaviours and desires. However, as a mother of two I struggled with the fluctuations that occurred to my body pre- and post-natal,” she said.
A lot of her clients are looking for options to dress comfortably “during this important stage of their lives as well as feeling empowered in the way they look”, Prince said. “I also have clients that are returning to work postpartum, this experience in itself is a daunting task, I offer support on styling options when re-entering the workplace.”
Prince grew up in the Jewish community and shared that despite not being religious herself, “I bring a unique understanding of the complexity that religious women face in having to dress in a conservative manner but also wanting to be stylish in what they are wearing.”
She added, “I believe there shouldn’t have to be a compromise because of one’s religious values and women still have the right to feel confident in what they are wearing.”
