Will I have to throw all my clothes away and start from scratch?
No, with all my packages around colour, image and personal style the aim is to work with what you already have. The idea is that you get rid of the stuff you never wear (nor ever will wear) to create space. You’ll be able to see everything that you keep much more clearly and you will actually love how the remaining items make you feel after the process.
Will you make me wear colours and clothes that I don’t like?
No, the whole point of working with me is to find your absolute best colours, styles and shapes that suit your lifestyle, reclaim your identity and define/refine your authentic personal style.
Will I have to spend lots of money on new clothes?
We will usually start with what you already have and see how it can be tweaked. There might be a few key pieces to add that will work with what you already have and make your wardrobe more versatile as you develop your personal style and get used to wearing your best colours.
What actually happens?
The first part of us working together is usually a chat. I need to know what you are hoping to get out of your time with me so I'll ask lots of questions. It helps me to understand where you are coming from and the best way for us to work together as we plan your bespoke pathway to personal style, brand & image confidence. Check out my client stories and case study blogs - get it from the horses mouth.
Do you do talks and presentations?
I most certainly do! I use my personal skills, knowledge and experience to educate and inspire my audience. I have a collection of talks/workshops/masterclasses that I'm adding to regulary, equally I'm happy to discuss your needs and tailor the session accordingly. Check out my speaker page for more details.
I just want a quick fix for a special occasion, can you help?
In this instance I'd advise a Personal Style and Branding Strategy Session.
You can choose an Online session : Video or phone call for when you need a bit of expert advice to work out what you actually want/need your clothes to say plus 3 months follow up support via WhatsApp OR a F2F session : Hands on advice in the comfort of your own home in front of your wardrobe plus one month follow up support via WhatsApp
Do you work with all shapes and sizes?
Absolutely yes! Everyone has their own, unique body shape, size and proportions. Body Shape is one of the key areas we would look at to figure out your best styles that enhance and flatter you and disguise the things you aren't so happy with. We're all different but you're perfectly YOU.
How long before I see results?
You can apply the advice from your session(s) immediately based on what you already have in your wardrobe. You might have a wishlist to fill the gaps and want to go shopping but it's not always essential to do that before you start to see a transformation. It's best to let things happen organically than rush the process though.
Will I have to get rid of things I love wearing?
My aim is to work with you so that you develop your personal style and learn what colours and clothes make you look and feel good. If you have something that you love wearing I expect it makes you feel good…so no. If you LOVE it who cares?
Do you work with men?
Absolutely yes for personal style and branding! I just don't aim my marketing at them. If you're interested in working with me please book a quick chat to discuss your needs and then I'll be able to advise you about the best way forward.
Can you come to my house?
In this instance I'd advise a face to face Personal Style and Branding Strategy Session.
Hands on advice in the comfort of your own home in front of your wardrobe plus one month follow up support via WhatsApp.
Book in for a quick chat first so we can discuss your needs.
Does colour analysis work for Asian/Black skin?
Absolutely! The principles of colour analysis apply whatever your skin tone. It's always about your unique combination of skin, hair and eyes. When you wear the colours that suit you best you'll have a lovely glow and shadows are eliminated - it's like magic!
Colour is my absolute geek out area of expertise, I guarantee 100% accurate results.
Why are you qualified to help me?
I've been involved with colour, make up, textiles and fashion since the early 80's...thankfully I've kept up with the times and won't make you wear shoulder pads or dress like Bananarama though! My skills, knowledge and experience have been honed over 30 years...but more than that I'm compassionate and approachable. I am not the fashion police and I'm not into giving someone a makeover so they look nice for that day but can't replicate it for everyday life - I like to teach my tips and tricks around colour and style so you look good and feel fab every day.
I'm losing weight, is it best to wait?
Noooooooo!!!!!!!!!! Don't wait - you deserve to feel fabulous regardless of your size. Once you have learned what colours and styles suit you and why, you can make informed decisions whatever your weight - life's too short to wait to feel fantastic.
Do you only work with women?
My one to one packages work for all genders. If you'd like to find out more about how I can help you with colour and styling to create the best first impression (for business, online dating or just in general) you can email me or give me a call 07975853245. It's up to you, I'll look forward to hearing from you either way.
