Hello, I’m Bernadette Payne

Founder of ‘That’s My Style’

I am a personal stylist, blogger, wife and mother. I am blessed with three children and a very loving and supportive husband. These people are my A-Team and the driving force behind the decision to start my own personal styling business.

So when did my love affair with style and fashion begin? Long ago! Even as a teenager I knew this was the only path I intended to take. After studying textile design at high school, I went on to graduate from East Sydney Design School and today I’m a member of the Australian Style Institute.

When styling and advising clients, I draw on over 20 years of experience buying and manufacturing fashion lines for some of Australia’s leading retailers. This involved regular buying trips to London, Paris, Barcelona, LA and New York, looking for new concepts, trends, fabrications and colour themes that were suitable for the Australian market. My role was to nurture the order from concept to delivery in store, and the entire journey in between.

Learning the foundations of garment design have taught me the basics for dressing to suit specific body shapes. My unique journey and the experiences gained along the way have led me to create ‘That’s My Style’.

I am continually inspired by my clients. Seeing them gain confidence, and be able to start shopping and dressing to embrace their own body shape is incredibly rewarding.
