“The future belongs to those who believe in the future of their dreams…”

I had finished a fashion degree at Uni and was looking to get into something like fashion styling but I knew from friends that it’s a really tough industry to get into. I came across Style Me Training and had never previously thought about Personal Styling but Nisha convinced me that it was a great way to still work in fashion whilst building a client base of my own. I now work as a Personal Shopper in Selfridges and earn fantastic commission simply because when I’m choosing clothes for my customers I pick clothes that are perfect for their shape! I know how to build their trust so they keep coming back for my services and as I’m also a Style ME stylist I offer the added services of Wardrobe Styling and Colour Analysis and build up my private client base.

As a mum I thought it would be great to do something that fit around my family as I was tired of commuting, feeling like I was clinging onto my old life when so much had changed. The intensive week was perfect as I knew that I could justify childcare for 5 days if I was going to get a career for a lifetime. I especially loved getting to learn about my style again and if I’m honest I had been getting it very wrong! I’m only able to do this part-time at the minute but the Style ME team have shown me some great ways of building up my clients so I plan to do this full-time very soon. The way I see it, if I go back to working full-time in my previous career the extra money I would earn would go straight to the childminder, this way any money i earn goes straight to me and I still get to pick up my kids from school!

My passion has always been fashion and shopping but somehow I fell into a really safe civil servant job and 20 years on I just thought that there has to be more to life. I had put off doing the intensive course because of work restraints and money so it helped when I emailed and was told that I could pay in 3 monthly installments. From the minute I walked in and met Nisha and Mary Ann I felt totally at ease, even though it was informal it was so informative and I scribbled away on my pad on a high with a thirst for the knowledge. I honestly thought it would be a nice thing to do at weekends but it has actually led to me doing some colour parties and i’ve even had the confidence to present at a womens networking event! Thank you Style ME I am on a mission. Miriam, Twickenham 

I am sorry for my English but want to say thank you to Nisha and Mary Ann helping and giving me a good time doing styling. I have had two clients this week and one is a man so I am happy to begin a new life thank you and I can see that this knowledge will be great for me when i’m back in Italy. That’s the best thing, Personal Styling is suited to every country! Sylvia, London

I’ve just had a most amazing time doing all the courses, I especially loved colour and cannot wait to try it out on my friends and family…I’m a Summer! Who knew?! I think I have been in black my whole adult life so first I am going to clear out my whole wardrobe then its on with my business head and finding those clients. I think you are going to hear a lot from me as I am still slightly daunted by the prospect of my first client but I am super charged and thank you for believing in me and getting me out of black!
