+ How are you different from other fashion apps?
StyleMD is a marketplace for independent fashion stylists. When you look for specific areas of interest we'll match you up with stylists that have expertise in those areas.
With so many subscription services, it can get a little confusing when your specific needs don't all fit directly into one of their boxes. Stylists that list their services on StyleMD focus 100% of their energy on you. That may be a quick mini consultation or you may want someone to work with you on styling, personal shopping and beyond.
Stylists on StyleMD are freelance professionals in the fashion industry and will work with you to achieve your goals based on your budget and style preferences. Stylist rates and serices vary and many will customize a package that works for you.
+ What type of services can I find on StyleMD?
If it’s related to fashion and style, we allow professionals to provide services for it. A partial list of services you can find from our stylists include: personal shoppers, wardrobe stylists, event specialists, wardrobe rehaul experts, bargain shopping, fashion shoots, beauty consulting, and the list goes on.
