Meet Dina

Dina’s creative spark and pure joy for all things Fashion started at an early age.

When she was just 5 years old, she was already pouring over countless fashion magazines and designing her own clothes (which her expert seamstress mother would make for her).

From those childhood days filling scrapbooks with clothes she adored, Dina began a lifelong fashion journey that would see her explore various aspects of the fashion world, including being a model, fashion designer, personal stylist and fashion assistant at some of Australia’s premier events, including Mercedes Benz Fashion Week and Rosemount Fashion Week, working with many of Australia’s leading fashionistas.

Combine that wealth of fashion experience and passion with more than two decades in senior roles in events, management, training and education, plus her extensive coaching, mentoring and counseling qualifications, including Bachelor of Social Work, Advanced Corporate Coach and Performance Consultant Accreditation from internationally recognized coaching bodies, and you have a seasoned professional possessing a unique blend of fashion savvy, mentoring skills and an insight into the demands placed on working women today.

In short, you have the Fashion Whisperer… someone who is more than simply a stylist. With warmth, humor and insight, Dina will help you define, enhance and develop your own personal style and expression through fashion. And it will feel effortless, uplifting and fun.

Dina has a global fashion perspective, having traveled extensively throughout Europe and Asia. She is an accredited Stylist with The Australian College of Professional Styling and is a lecturer at FBI Fashion and Business Institute.  Dina has also worked with the likes of Kelvin Harries (prominent Sydney Stylist for David Jones) and Miro (front-of-house  and seating specialist for international fashion shows in Australia, New York, New Zealand and Dubai).

Dina takes particular interest in working with professional women between the ages of 35-60 who currently feel at a loss as to how to make a Unique Impact in the competitive world of corporate, business and their personal lives. We all form opinions of each other within the first 3-7 seconds. Dina KNOWS from personal experience and through her clients how what we wear can attract or repel people. Be the person who attracts; take action NOW by filling in the form in the top right hand corner of this page NOW!
