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 cuppa and 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 & image confidence. Check out the case study blogs - get it from the horses mouth.
Do you do talks and presentations?
I love doing talks and presentations on all aspects of my work. As a professional speaker with almost 30 years experience of lecturing I'm happy delivering to large or small groups, in person or online. I can create bespoke training packages for training and development purposes.
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!
Do you work with all shapes and sizes?
Absolutely yes! Everyone has their own, unique body shape, size and proportions. 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.
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.
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 use the contact me button to send me a message or give me a call 07975853245. It's up to you, I'll look forward to hearing from you either way.
