HOW IT ALL STARTED I have always been interested in fashion and style from a young age. More than anything I love to see how people put outfits together to express themselves. As Oscar de la Renta states “Fashion is about dressing according to what’s fashionable. Style is more about being yourself.” It’s people’s innate style that is endlessly fascinating.
Despite this interest, I found that once I became a parent I lacked self confidence when it came to clothes. I dressed in practical outfits day in day out and lost my sense of style. Little did I know that attending my own Style Makeover Day back in 2015 would lead to a new career. It reignited my passion for clothing and reminded me of who I am and what I like and that feeling stayed with me long after the day ended. I decided to retrain as a Style Consultant so I could combine my love of fashion and style with my desire to help build other people’s confidence.
Although it may feel frivolous to spend time talking about colour, personal style and shape, I believe these sessions provide so much more. Finding colours that make you glow, a style that is a reflection of your true nature and clothes that flatter your body shape builds confidence and your self esteem. It can be life changing!
WHO I HELP
AND HOW I HELP YOU I generally work with women but not exclusively and age is irrelevant. So far, I’ve helped people from 18-80+.
After any consultation I want you to feel confident and excited about clothes, underpinned with knowledge that will help make life easier going forward.
Getting dressed each day will be effortless. Once you have started to curate a wardrobe that reflects your style with items that suit your shape, in colours that have been hand-picked for you, choosing outfits will be easy. When it comes to shopping afterwards, most clients find they shop smarter, making less impulsive purchases. Items bought on a whim often end up rarely getting worn because you later realise they don’t quite suit your style or don’t go with anything else in your wardrobe.
Knowing what colours, styles and shapes of clothing work for you can be good for the wallet not just your soul!
Style Consultant training with Jane Cooke from Dress Rehearsal. Jane provides an extremely comprehensive course comprised of
approximately three weeks of 1:1 training alongside numerous observations of colour, style and shape consultations.
As an independent Stylist, I will not be trying to shoe-horn you in to a particular category when it comes to colour, style or shape. When it comes to colour for example, I have been trained in both the seasonal and tonal spectrums but will hand pick every colour that suits you, not just stick to those within a colour spectrum that you broadly fit in to.
