“I don’t feel that ‘I don’t have any clothes’ feeling anymore”
"Working with Liana was an AWESOME experience. She has such a huge knowledge of brands, cut and fit and gave me so many great pointers to fit my body type and coloring. Re-organizing my clothes the way she suggested is a MILLION times better than I had it - and I'm an organizer so that says a lot. I have dressed with confidence and east since our session because I now know exactly what I have. I don't feel that ‘I don't have any clothes’ feeling anymore.”
“She taught me about fit and she was saving me money on clothes by buying anchor pieces that last”
"As a professional musician, I never put much thought into my personal style. The more my career took off, the more press photos would appear online and I knew I needed a style that spoke to my message. That's where Liana stepped in and changed my life!
She is personable, a wonderful listener and totally non-judgmental. Not only did she go through my closet at home, but she also went shopping with me. She taught me about fit and she was saving me money on clothes by buying anchor pieces that last rather than holding onto things that sat in my closet unworn!
I'm hooked and recommend her with the highest regard!"

“I now have a wardrobe where I am actually excited to get ready in the morning”
“I worked with Liana at Be Brilliant Styling as I desperately needed a more professional wardrobe for my job as an attorney and was never very good at picking out on my own what to wear and what styles work best...and it's the best thing I ever did! Liana started off by asking some basic questions to get an idea of what I was looking for, then went to work scouring stores all over Manhattan finding items that would be perfect for me. She pulled literally dozens of articles of clothing and had them all ready for me to try on in the dressing room when I arrived. I tried everything on, and she was able to tell me what looked good on my body type, how things should fit, and how certain outfits could be accessorized. It was a long day, but I now have a wardrobe where I am actually excited to get ready in the morning, whereas I used to hate it because I had nothing to wear. Liana followed up a few days later with dozens of online recommendations that I could purchase as my budget allows. I now know what to look for when shopping on my own thanks to Liana's guidance. Liana is very good at what she does and genuinely cares about making you feel good about how you look. I highly recommend her.”

“I was able to leave the house for the day and when I got back it was magically and beautifully done!”
“Liana from Be Brilliant Styling organized ALL my closets 1.5 years ago and then came back for another round in October. Liana saved me a lot of time and aggravation from trying to do it on my own. Everything was color/season coordinated and she was able to fit everything into the right place. Bonus was I didn’t have to buy new organizing products. She utilized everything I had. I was able to leave the house for the day and when I got back it was magically and beautifully done! Liana is super professional and most of all kind. She understands what your needs are and is able to organize according to your daily lifestyle. I would hire her over and over again!!! So grateful for all her hard work.”
-Luba P. (Early Childhood Occupational Therapist, Westchester, NY)
“She really heard what I was looking for and provided the right number of options”
“I worked virtually with Liana at Be Brilliant Styling to accessorize my Maid of Honor look for my sister's wedding in Italy last summer. I sent a photo of the dress and shoes I would be wearing to Liana via email. She responded with four earring options in varying styles with explanations of why each could be a good option. (I bought the first pair from the list, nailed it...) Liana also let me know that with the dress style, I could probably skip wearing a necklace. (Honest advice, very valuable.) She sent me an example of the type of bag I should look for based on the other components of the outfit. When I found one I liked (at a price I also liked) I sent a photo and got her official approval. (Not a required part of the process but very helpful.) Liana was very easy to work with virtually and her style choices were perfect for me. I felt like she really heard what I was looking for and provided the right number of options for me to make decisions without feeling overwhelmed. Will work with Liana for styling again.”

“I’m leaving the house these days with some extra pep in my step and I have to thank Liana for making that possible”
“I recently did a shopping session with Liana and quite simply, she has transformed the way I relate to myself and my wardrobe. I’m now aware of which colors work for me and I’m having so much fun putting outfits together! I find myself experimenting with combinations of clothes, shoes, and accessories and I feel completely empowered in choosing what works and what doesn’t. Overall, I’m leaving the house these days with some extra pep in my step and I have to thank Liana for making that possible. Overall, Liana created a safe environment in which I felt comfortable taking advice from her. I’ve now discovered the simple pleasure and power of getting dressed in the morning.”

“Liana's practical ideas bring beauty and calm to your life … she is a life changer”
“I could not even walk into my big, new closet in my Brooklyn apartment. Clothes were hanging and dangling on my closet door on plastic hooks. Clothes for every season in every color were shoved in the closet on all different hangers, falling onto the floor. Shoes were piled up in bins. Bags for every season were also hanging all over. I was miserable and wearing the same outfits every day- until Liana was recommended to me by a friend. Liana has ended my clutter, mess and disorganization problem. She not only taught me how to organize my closet but I feel Completely Different about my wardrobe. Liana's practical ideas bring beauty and calm to your life. I now know where everything is. I'm dressing better and wasting less time. Liana is a life changer. She has an eye for detail and color. I can't wait to have her organize more rooms in my apartment.”
-Jeanine M. (teacher and entrepreneur, Brooklyn NY)
“My life is far more peaceful and productive. Liana is a treasure!”
“Liana designed my closets and my office to my delight. Further she helped organize my unmanageable office. I can now see and find everything. My life is far more peaceful and productive. Liana is a treasure!”
-Maxine B. (English professor and tutor, Upper West Side)
“Liana offered such a tremendous amount of guidance to help me look and feel my best.”
Liana is the best. She is certainly a master of her craft. From our preliminary consultation, where Liana helped determine which styles and colors worked best for my skin tones and body type, to the "Closet Edit" (where we parsed through my wardrobe and assessed what I already own that works, and which items really needed to go), Liana offered such a tremendous amount of guidance to help me look and feel my best. As a busy business owner, I value each minute of time outside running my business...because of this, I LOVED the Closet Edit as it gave me the ability to determine what I already possess and what sorts of pieces I really need to invest in. This way, when I do go shopping, its streamlined and to the point :). I also LOVE a good closet purge, especially those items that I've been holding onto for years that really are no bueno for my body/skin. She has an impeccable eye and her fun, light-hearted disposition makes working with her a delight. If you are looking for a styling expert to help you sift through your own piles of clothes and finding what makes you shine bright, look no further :).
