Sarah Calvert is the stylist behind the consultancy, Styling Mrs Oliver to which she brings 20 years experience as a womenswear fashion designer in London, Hong Kong and Sydney.
Sarah’s love for all things inspirational started off as a small child in Margaret Oliver’s wardrobe. Her Gran, Mrs Oliver, was an incredibly stylish lady and a huge inspiration. Fascinated by her elegant suede stilettos from the 60’s, timeless Burberry trench coats, handbags and classic silk dresses, hours were spent trying everything on. Her influence inspired the idea to study fashion design many years later, which became Sarah's focus and career.
Combining a love of fashion, design, photography and memory of Mrs Oliver herself brought about the creation of Styling Mrs Oliver. One-off seasonal fashion trends do not dictate the essence of the brand; the focus is more on quality and sustainability offering simple wardrobe solutions and style guides for savvy women of all ages that will stand the test of time.
I wanted to write to you and say thank you so very much for the styling service you provided me. Your 'mama package' exceeded my expectations. Not only did you make full use of my existing wardrobe, but you also nailed my personal style, and the new pieces I purchased have certainly completed my wardrobe. I feel both cool and relevant. My boys love their stylish mum too.
Sarah your soft yet direct nature made you an absolute pleasure to work with, and I look forward to working with you again.
