ABOUT ME

lauren engelke - the sustainable stylist

Hi! I’m Lauren, and I’m an on set tailor and stylist who started asking too many questions. Like, “Who needs 11 colorways of metallic flannel shirts?” and “Why do new jeans smell like chlorine and poo when I steam them?”

(The answers: the cast of a musical about lumberjacks, and finishing chemicals.)

Once I started learning more about the terrible working conditions and wastefulness of conventional garment production, I decided to do something. I started to offer styling services with sustainable garments.

I also posted a couple of thrifted outfits to Instagram, and that quickly turned into its own thing! I’ve begun offering personal styling in response to demand.

The best part is that I’ve met so many people working to make change - whether they are designing a line made from recycled cotton, or just trying to make smart decisions with their wardrobes.

I’m here because fashion is my first language. I express myself through what I wear, and it’s how I help brands and individuals express themselves.

Join me! Our future is bright.




ON SET TAILORING AND STYLING

I have been an on set tailor and stylist for 4+ years, for clients including Sears, Kohl’s, and Lands’ End; I’ve been tailoring professionally for about 10 years and was a bridal tailor before working on set. Email me directly for day rates and availability at hellolaurenengelke [at] gmail [dot] com. I do not do personal alterations. :)

 

BRAND COLLABORATIONS

I love hearing from brands who are doing good and helping the earth!

New Mama Styling Package - 30 min
45.00

Becoming a mama means a lot of change - changing size, changing shape, and maybe even changing career! Whether you are newly pregnant and want to plan for your bump, or you are several months postpartum and figuring out what to wear when you go back to work, the New Mama Styling Package will set you up for success.

Together, we’ll:
- Figure out your individual wardrobe recipe - which outfits work best for you and how many of each you need
- Plan out how your body will change over the next couple of months, and how we can adapt the garments you have to work with that.
- Figure out 2 or 3 key garments that will make a difference in your wardrobe, and I’ll recommend specific brands to get you started.

This is a 30 minute, fun & casual Skype session. I’ll send a couple of questions to you beforehand, so that we can hit the ground running during our session. If you want to stay on for longer than 30 minutes, we can always add that on later!

BF/BFF Makeover - 60 min
75.00

Do you have an amazing person in your life who maybe isn’t into fashion? But you KNOW they could look and feel amazing in the right outfit? You have come to the right woman.

I have had the great joy of helping several friends find outfits or a capsule of outfits that make them feel confident and ready to take on the world. The first time I helped a friend do this, we picked an outfit he wore on a first date- and now they are married and have a beautiful baby! In no way do I take credit - but I think a great outfit can give you the confidence to take a chance!

In a fun, casual 60 minute session, we will work with your friend to:
- Figure out their wardrobe recipe - the number and type of outfits that will fit their lifestyle & make them feel awesome
- Identify what’s working and what is not working in their wardrobe
- Figure out the 2-3 key items that will make a big difference in their wardrobe. I’ll make specific brand recommendations for each.

This is a lighthearted half hour session that should take place near your friend’s closet, so that we can look at their clothes. You are always welcome to add on another 30 minutes if you want to!
