You can’t miss Michelle Addison’s playful yet effortless ensembles, as she hops from chic boutiques to fashion events in her busy day as one of Vancouver’s top fashion stylists. Michelle’s penchant for fashion can be traced back to her childhood years, learning the art of dressing from her grandmother. Few possess the talent to fuse eclectic runway pieces from Bottega Venetta and Celine with wallet-friendly favourites like Topshop and Zara. Her down-to-earth sartorial approach is exactly why so many women flock to Michelle for her style expertise and advice.
A quintessential West Coast woman, she reaches for Céline heels on weekdays and her downhill skis on weekends. Approachable and straightforward, this fashion expert lives by the credo that style is something that can be thought, when given the right set of tools. Michelle has dressed a wide spectrum of inspiring women, from stay-at-home moms to business professionals to celebrities. Most recently she has worked with Nordstrom Vancouver as a million-plus top seller personal stylist. While selling millions of dollars has many advantages, Michelle re-launched her personal business in September 2019 to seek out authentic connections with her clients and deeper creative pursuits.
On her blog and Instagram, this fiery go-getter shares her style tips and tricks, her personal style and her chic life with her ten-year old daughter Stella. Like mother, like daughter: Stella is a burgeoning fashion virtuoso, proving once more that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
When she’s not running her fingers through clothing racks or on-line shopping, Michelle can be spotted hiking through the many beautiful BC trails, surfing in Tofino with her partner Mark, or walking her dog Harley in the endowment lands in UBC. Whatever the occasion calls, it is always accompanied with a picture-perfect outfit.
I usually gravitate to towards a R13 jeans or Jesse Kamm sailor pants, Saint Laurent ankle boots, Isabel Marant sweater and a Celine coat…I have too many.
I love party dresses from Zara! I pair them with designer tights and it looks so chic.
My power piece is an ‘old’ Celine blazer. With a pair of jeans it elevates any scene.
I love a good Isabel Marant dress, I can wear them with a chunky cardigan and ankle boots or a chic long blazer.
I love my sneakers. Right now I am into Golden Goose but I have a few Common Project sneakers too. I switch between a few Stella McCartney handbags and really love that she doesn’t do leather.
