Toronto’s Style Saviours: five people that will help you look like perfection
Made-to-measure needn’t mean endless trips to the tailor. Isaac Ely, a third-generation textile professional, will come to your home or office for style consultations, measurements and fittings. Garments—handcrafted from high-end fabrics by Zegna, and Holland and Sherry—are designer quality with one-of-a-kind fit. Suits from $2,800, shirts from $350. 416-440-8989, isaacely.com.
If you’re too busy to look like a fashion plate, delegate the shopping to an expert. Zayna Mosam is a stylist and image consultant who will perform a body and lifestyle analysis before building a personalized wardrobe. Mosam works frequently with male and female execs who want to polish their image, and time-strapped gala-goers looking to top the best-dressed list—she’ll even make shopping trips to New York to hunt down the perfect pair of shoes. Preliminary style analysis $250. 416-907-8156, zmimage.com.
For wardrobes in constant malfunction mode, Annie Mesenge, a Parisian expat who has dressed socialites out of her Yorkville boutique, French Accents, for the last 15 years, now offers closet culling services. With a fresh eye and sartorial expertise, Mesenge will create new looks from the threads you already have, trim the unfashionable fat and fill gaps with clothing and accessories from her new Ossington outpost, Annie Aime. $150 an hour. 416-840-5227, annieaime.com.
Creeds offers free pickup and delivery, and a staff that won’t rest until your wine-stained silk dress looks like it just came off the runway. A handbag-cleaning regimen restores last season’s it bag to perfection. They even offer service to cottage country—because that $200 bikini isn’t going to clean itself. Creeds.com.
If the idea of traipsing to the spa is simply too stressful, it’s possible to turn your homestead, office or hotel room into a pop-up pampering oasis. This mobile service offers a chocolate- peppermint pedicure ($70), an orchid facial ($125), an indulgent four-hand massage ($225), and hair and makeup. Unwind in familiar surroundings, or (more likely) get an updo while going over annual reports. 416-859-4526, wrightspa.com.
