Colour Analysis Training – Do I really need it?

Colour Analysis Training – Do I really need it?

Roll back 15 years ago through a crazy twist of fate I came to the realisation that a career in Personal Styling was the vocation I had been dreaming of. How had I not thought of it any sooner, I kept thinking? I loved fashion, I’m a ‘people’s person’ and I’m self motivated… determined not to waste any more time, I was raring to go and started to research the appropriate training. It didn’t take long however before I was totally overwhelmed, not only by the amount of courses that were out there but by the amount of money training […]

New Year, New You!

New Year, New You!

Happy New Year everyone! I seriously can’t believe we’re already in 2019, where has the past year or even this decade gone? As I write this blog I’m sitting here on a beautiful isolated beach in Goa, I’ve got a glass of chilled white wine in my hand and I’m looking into the sunset feeling very blessed. For anyone who knows me Goa is a very special place to me, I’ve been holidaying here since 1998 and although each trip creates its own memories, Goa is the one place I can always find time to reflect and dream… In fact […]

Why Christmas is every Personal Stylist’s most productive time!

How would it feel to make money whilst you sleep? Like a dream come true, as if Christmas has come early? Well for most of us Personal Stylists that’s exactly how it is!

So you can imagine how good it feels that whilst the money in our personal bank account is dwindling money being deposited into our business accounts is flourishing due to increasing sales of our […]

How to dress your clients this Party Season!

Party season is here and for all of us Personal Stylists it’s the last bit of Personal Shopping work we have to do before the sales kick in and we take a well-deserved break! This year seems to be busier than usual for me as it feels like clients are wanting to shop for their party looks even earlier than usual and who can blame them as every shop window from Zara to Zadig and Volataire has been screaming out it’s party time! There’s so much choice from sequins to velvet, to lace to animal prints to tuxedos dresses to […]

What exactly is a Wardrobe Stylist?

What exactly is a Wardrobe Stylist?

How much confusion can a title cause? It’s funny in these past couple of weeks I’ve had at least 3 calls from women wanting to book onto the ‘Train to be a Wardrobe Stylist’ course who have been in total confusion as to what the job actually entails. Luckily I offer every potential delegate a free 30-minute consultation/chat to find out everything they need to know before committing to any training at our Academy so there’s no embarrassing moment where they realised they’ve actually enrolled on to the completely wrong course! Yes, there are two completely different job descriptions for […]
