Eleanor

May 24th, 2019

My client Eleanor is in her early twenties and works as a journalist and we were looking for outfits both for work and for various events over the summer. I love her in jumpsuits and most importantly she feels her best wearing them too. The second dress is much more casual and could be worn ‘day to night’ with just a change of shoes, a jacket and jewellery. I love dressing the individual in what suits their personality and their body-shape whilst always sticking within their budget (and it doesn’t matter what the budget is, with a bit of imagination there’s something out there for everyone!)

Classic style

May 21st, 2019

 

A dress and coat that would be great for a classic lady. The cut flatters an hour glass shape, pear shape but less so an apple shape; however, these are old fashion terms of body shapes and most of us are combinations of these. On top of that, height is something to take into consideration, as well. If you want to know more about what you are as far as body shape and what really suits your style do ask for help, as this could save you so much hassle and money, for a lifetime even.

Cathrin

May 12th, 2019

Another shopping trip client. Cathrin is a mother of two boys in their teens. She came to me because she felt stuck in a style rut of always buying the same in navy or black. Too much colour makes her feel uncomfortable, so I just added a bit of colour here and there and stuck to classic shapes and crucially these pieces complement her wardrobe and will go with what she already owns.

We went to a small boutique in Wandsworth called Olivier’s lounge and spent a few fun hours trying out various combinations

I think Catrin looks super classy and chic in an effortless way!

Dear Catherine

Yesterday was really fantastic! Thank you for your great enthusiasm and professional expertise. I was absolutely amazed by what you were able to do with my existing wardrobe and your knowledge of tops and other items in the shops right now. V impressive! I found the whole experience energising and very supportive!

Thank you also for the photos and links to the various tops!

I have always expressed my personality (all of the different facets) through how I dress. I realised yesterday just how I had stopped wearing anything fitted (which has always been a huge part of how I dress). I felt our session  allowed me to slip back into my (clothing) skin, and with your help, in fact move forward into a more modern version of myself.

I am so excited to be working with you! I cannot wait for our next session.

Thank you!!!

Pop-up @Bluebird

May 4th, 2019

Here’s a pop-up collection from a selection of designers that come from Lagos in Africa using an incredible mixture of old and new materials. Most of the shapes are classic and very wearable. This is at one of the many shops I take my clients to – the Bluebird Shop in Covent Garden.

For my clients I like to choose from a variety of high street shops but on occasion I do suggest one designer piece that is worth the money in wear and fit. If you want designer, then of course we can go down that route, but I always respect your budget! I wouldn’t be doing a good job if one of my client’s budget was overstretched and they went home after our appointment feeling heavy hearted.

Most of my clients say the results are incredible and they feel amazing as they have such a wonderful selection of clothing to choose from every day. That’s my aim!!!
