Who we are


Mai-Lan Lewis, Founder, REFINE

REFINE provides personal styling and wardrobe management services; helping you refine and enhance your personal style.

At REFINE we focus on making the most of your individual assets. We aim to help you build a wardrobe that gives you more confidence, shows people who you are and makes you feel amazing. Having great style is not just about following the latest fashion trends but more importantly about finding clothes that complement and enhance your body shape, suit your lifestyle and personality as well as boost your confidence.

We work hard to select clothes to suit the personality, lifestyle, shape, size, colour, and budget of every client. We enable them to look stylish and feel confident, while saving them precious time and money. This ethos and high level of professional service have generated a loyal following of clients on both sides of the Channel.

We offer a completely tailored service to suit your individual needs:

Personal styling is also about having a great shopping experience. Knowing which shops to go to, finding clothes that flatter first time round, discovering shapes and colours out of your comfort zone.

Whether for yourself or to treat a loved one; personal styling is an exciting, informative and fun experience, and one that has lasting benefits, whether to look a knock out at a big event or to revamp your whole image. You will get an organised wardrobe with stylish and up to date wearable clothes as well as renewed confidence and it will change the way they dress & shop forever.

As for me… Personal styling came naturally from my passion for fashion and shopping. Friends and family naturally turn to me to help them dress their best, but it also came from my executive search and headhunting career within asset management and global transaction banking; I often found myself not only advising on career change but also on corporate image and branding. My clients CEOs, directors, partners, senior managers and executives increasingly understood that their image would support their climb up the corporate ladder, which made me realise I could combine my love of shopping and flair for style with my expertise of the corporate world and what makes a good hire. Whether in your personal life or at work, personal style and how you present yourself is one of the very first things potential employers, clients or dates experience. It’s that all important first impression; presenting your best, most genuine self and make people remember you!

Hence the decision to formally train as a personal stylist and to found Refine.
To me Refine is all about listening to my clients and guiding them through their personal style journey and helping them find their true style, creating a unique personal brand whilst boosting confidence and self-esteem. Each client (whether old or new) is special and unique. It is incredibly rewarding to see them feel energised and excited about discovering and owning a new sense of style. I offer a straightforward approach on timeless and effortless style for busy, successful men and women, and I would love to help you too!

Splitting my time is split between Paris and London, my personal style is classic Parisian chic with a hint of London cool.
