Anastasia Slabunova

Hello

My name is Anastasia Slabunova, I live in Italy. I’ve been working as a personal shopper-stylist since 2009 as well as giving lectures in Italian Fashion Academy – Accademia del Lusso.

You undoubtfully know that Italy is the place for fantastic clothes shopping. If you know where to go. Having visited different parts of Italy, I realised that the best shopping is in small and wealthy cities in the North of Italy where many generations of affluent Italians live.

Here you’ll find luxury boutiques; single or multi-brand shops where the locals go.

Hidden away from the tourist hoards, they offer an extensive range of world class brands, eager to do everything possible to satisfy their clients and make them want to come back for more.

For almost 10 years I’ve been in the trade I’ve established exclusive relationships with many of the most important boutiques and hence they are happy to offer 22 percent VAT return for my clients, not just 11% Tax Free as most of other shops do. In addition, I offer my personal 10% discount. What’s more I prepare all the outfits for my clients in advance and they are reserved for them until the day when their session is booked.

These are the best shopping terms you can get in Italy! My experience is hundreds of wardrobes a year for almost 10 years. Most of my clients come back to me at least once a year and I see some of them every season.

Why not try it out for yourself? I am sure that I’ll be able to select you a wardrobe that will transform your life and keep you happy day after day!

Five reasons to shop with me:

  1. Stylish wardrobe: all the items are interchangeable and match with each other
  2. My personal shopper’s discount applicable to all your purchases
  3. VAT saving: 22% VAT return, rather than the standard 11% tax free, for all my clients traveling from outside of the EU
  4. Sales start a month earlier with me!
  5. Shopping in one day – I prepare everything in advance and you only need one day.

 

Shopping with a personal shopper is cost efficient and fascinating!

When I prepare all the outfits for you I consider your wishes, your figure type, your lifestyle, your profession, your character, budget, season trends and much more. Shopping with a stylist is a guarantee that all the purchased items will bring you satisfaction and you’ll keep wearing them day after day, it will fit perfectly and will pay you back with admiring looks, compliments, maybe promotion at work and many other surprises!

I will advise you on what suits you best and answer any of your fashion questions during the shopping experience, everything is included in the price. I am not selling you a lecture about figure type, colour scheme and style, I deliver the result.

You save time and money. I can guarantee you a fully functional wardrobe and excellent company!

 

And most importantly – a personal shopper is not only for Hollywood stars!

Today I have clients with different income who come to Italy on holidays, for work or for shopping as Italy is known to be one of the worlds fashion capitals! They all understand that if they want to spend their money wisely and not to fall into pitfalls the help of a personal shopper is indispensable.

I offer a thoroughly prepared and functional wardrobe, where all the looks are complimentary and interchangeable, where each accessory plays an important role and adds the final touch.

I save you time and money as the boutiques know me, appreciate my business and give you an extra discount thus the cost of my services as a personal shopper is instantly paid off.

When you use my services, I guarantee that your money will be well spent and apart from your new wardrobe you’ll bring back unforgettable memories. It does not matter how big your budget is €3,000, €5,000 or €20,000 what matters is the way you spend it.

When you work with a professional you can be sure of the result:

  • Money well spent
  • Fully functional wardrobe
  • Fantastic time and wonderful holidays!

More questions? Get in touch and I’ll be more than happy to help.

Yours faithfully,

Anastasia Slabunova

Milan Fashion week (autumn 2018)

It is an absolutely incredible feeling, almost like I’ve been away on a long journey.

These few days at the Milan Fashion week have just stormed by filled as they were with astonishing encounters and the latest fashion trends.

Colourful images follow each other in quick succession like in a film strip that I run over and over again in my mind.

For the last seven days Milan became the most fashionable city in the world. Everything that happens during the fashion week may look like an amazing fairy tale come to life, but this fairy tale is a result of meticulous, carefully planned and orchestrated work.

Fashion Week is like a non-stop carnival, but instead of the carnival costumes and venetian masks, it’s the kingdom of ultramodern or even futuristic looks.

I was expecting that Milan would entice big crowds, but I could not even imagine the scale of it.

Photographers flashing their cameras, people speaking different languages.

Dainty models fluttering from one show to another looking extremely slim, I’d say they look exhausted. During the fashion week they are working from before the sun comes up until long after it goes down. There is always a mad dash to get to the next show on time. They can do up to 5-10 shows a day. As glamorous and exciting as it can look from the outside, being a model is a lot of hard work and dedication.

Celebrities inundate the streets of Milan, and their concentration per square meter is just overwhelming.

I’ve seen so many of them – world number one blogger Chiara Ferragni with her husband Fedez, gorgeous Julianne Moore, handsome Armie Hammer, fashion industry goddess Anna Wintour, pop-idol Rita Ora, stunning Vincent Cassel, bloggers such as Linda Tol, Leonie Hanne, Tamu Mcpherson and many others.

Celebrities are being constantly photographed. You can feel how physically exhausting it is for them, but they stay strong, this is their moment, their job.

On top of it all, according to unstated agreement of the fashion world, dress code for the summer fashion week is winter/autumn collection, with the thermometer reaching the high of 31 degrees Celsius in Milan!

All the fashionistas were just sweltering in their warm clothes.

In February it will be the opposite. Best summer looks will flood the street in winter when it is cold and windy outside. This has long become the reality, the price to pay to be part of the game called “fashion”.

I “was taking out” my new black wool and camel Balenciaga sweater, white fur coat and trendy leather culottes, personal look being your best asset!

I felt like a real celebrity too!

Hundreds of photographers at fashion shows or just in the street were asking me to pose. Paparazzi were surrounding me and the clicking of cameras was heard everywhere.

It was so unexpected, I was a little bit taken aback at first, but gradually got used to it and completely enjoyed the experience. Now you’ll be able to see a familiar face in MFW street style photos ?.

The audience differs from one show to another, for instance Salvatore Ferragamo and Dolce&Gabbana fashion shows are mainly attended by elegant dressed in a classic fashion ladies, Iceberg and A.F.Vandervorst on the other hand attract the millennials.

On average there are 15-17 shows per day, and they are almost impossible to attend if you do not have connections in the industry.

This time I had the privilege to attend a few shows.

I am still  mesmerised by the phenomenal looks created by Iceberg seen from the front row.

Fashion triumphant reigns over all of Milan, one of a kind looks and styles spill from the catwalks and onto the streets were its all about diversity and bright colours. The coolest, most popular, ultramodern trends are without a doubt leopard print, huge sneakers in combination with anything and everything. Of course its Balenciaga that runs the show – the password, secret code and vip ticket to the modern world of fashion.

After a week here in the high stakes world of fashion, my lasting impression would be EXTRAVAGANZA! A feast for the eyes and a look into the future.
