Keep Calm anyone can have a Personal Stylist!

Keep Calm anyone can have a Personal Stylist!

When I first decided I wanted to become a Personal Stylist (2006!) I remember despite all my enthusiasm for this fantastic new career choice I was faced with a lot of negativity from my peers in my office, not from the women but from the men! I regularly received comments like: “What people really pay people to take them shopping?” and “Only rich people with ample money to throw away would be silly enough to hire a personal stylist”.

Building a Holiday Capsule Wardrobe

This Summer alone I’ve had 5 clients booking my services to help them build a Holiday Capsule Wardrobe. Everyone of their trips was different of course but the brief was always the same: “help me pack into my 20 kg allowanced suitcase, clothes that I can effortlessly dress up or down, day to night”.

Now most stores from Gap to Harrods have an in-house Personal Shopping team, where appointments are pre-booked, the personal shopper gets a real understanding of her clients brief, including her […]

Alopecia Areata is something that’s very close to my heart not only have I personally suffered from it but so have so many of my clients and some very close family members.

In less extreme cases the hair becomes thinner without noticeable patches of baldness but in extreme cases, complete loss of scalp hair […]
