Need Help? Request A Stylist


Here at The Shelter we love to help people look and feel amazing, and offering private styling sessions is one of the ways we can do this. We offer one-on-one styling sessions if you are stuck in a rut, heading back to the workforce, or simply needing a wardrobe refresh. We will happily go through and update your wardrobe with our talented in-store and digital stylists both during and after hours. These sessions are personalised and shaped to you and will leave you feeling inspired and confident getting dressed every morning.

Or if you are interested in booking in for an event for a business/client function, a night out with a bunch of girlfriends, or for a personal session please don't hesitate to get in touch at and we will come back to you as soon as possible.

Private styling evenings are offered at our Auckland, at 78 Mackelvie St, Ponsonby boutique and Dunedin, at 41 Filleul Street, Central Dunedin. If you are not Auckland or Dunedin based, we offer digital styling sessions with a stylist from our workroom or preferred store stylist. This can be organised over email, phone or Facetime.

We're here to help.
