THE OFFICIAL BIO…

As image stylist and founder of Waking Up In Paris, Clarissa Grace helps ambitious mums embrace their bodies, believe in their beauty and transform themselves through the power of personalised style. She is professionally trained in fashion design, costume design, and haute couture through The Paris American Academy, and created hundreds of couture wedding gowns for brides under her own label. Clarissa has been splashed on the pages of Vogue, Cosmopolitan and Woman's Day, chatted on Channel 7 and Nine, and dressed some of Australia's most dazzling stars such as Isabel Lucas, Kate Ritchie, Jodi Gordon and Ricki-Lee Coulter.

Clarissa wholeheartedly believes that there is nothing so powerful as a woman who feels beautiful. After the suicide of her father and the death of her third son two weeks later, she experienced intimately the way grief can create a wardrobe of its own. The feminine and the colourful became baggy and black. But after a long season of sadness and a pining for more, Clarissa made the decision to stop dressing the way she felt, and start dressing the way she wanted to feel. She started dressing like the woman she wanted to become, even though she hadn’t become her yet. And by bringing beauty back into her wardrobe, she was delightfully surprised that it not only transformed her style, but her mind, her heart and her life.


Clarissa lives on the beaches of Sydney, Australia with her husband and three children.
