Team

Sophie Hart
Creative Director

With an aptitude for inventive solutions and a meticulous refined eye for detail Sophie is widely recognized as being at the peak of her profession. After creating SHS in 2007 the business has gone from strength to strength. Year after year Sophie has developed and built upon a diverse but loyal client base.

With a client base across all platforms the SHS team, directed by Sophie, is versatile, professional and dedicated to finding the perfect style solution. Hart’s personal duty to style extends beyond that of the traditional stylist;

“Styling for me is more than fashion, it’s creating a particular look or theme for a specific project or client fulfilling the brief and their needs. I take into consideration the whole picture, what works for one client may not work for the next and every day the game changes. There’s never a dull moment.”


Lucy Alder

Lucy has a Bachelor of Arts in Communications – Theatre and Media and a Certificate IV in Arts in Visual Merchandising.

Just some of her many areas of expertise are; costume and real life styling, props and art direction for TV commercials and advertising campaigns, TV personalities, interior projects and she is also an experienced personal stylist.
