What is a style consultation?
It is head-to-toe advice on everything you need to know to make you look your best and radiate confidence. So, starting from the top – I give advice on hair styles and glasses/sunglasses that best suit your face shape, down to the types of shoes you need to wear that won’t kill your look. And, for the bit in the middle, I give advice on your casual, smart casual or formal wardrobe. This part takes up the majority of the time, as we assess your body shape, proportions, scale, style personality and shopping habits.
Why have a style consultation?
Knowing what looks great on you isn’t always easy to figure out. There are so many variables that need to be taken into account. For example women fall (mainly) into six different body shapes – which is yours? Your style personality, budget and lifestyle may determine what you need to wear and when. A style and image consultation can help you select clothes and accessories that flatter your shape, make you look great and feel more confident.
When is a good time to come?
Usually clients come along at different stages in their life and for a variety of reasons – going back to work; wanting advice because they have lost/gained weight and aren’t sure what suits them; where to shop as they feel out of touch with trends; or it’s time for a change as they are a bit bored with their look.
What is covered in the style consultation?
- select the most flattering styles and fabrics for your body shape
- emphasise what you like about your body and disguise what you don’t
- achieve a perfect fit every time when buying clothes
- express your personality through your wardrobe
- avoid shopping disasters
- develop a co-ordinated wardrobe so you get maximum usage from it
- dress with confidence, whatever the occasion
- reduce time and frustration looking for the perfect outfit
How does it work?
I’ll send you a questionnaire which you need to fill in and send back to me before we meet as I need to glean some key facts/information. I encourage all clients to bring several pieces of clothing from their wardrobe – some things you like and some you don’t – so that you can see what you have learnt, in practice, throughout your style consultation. All the tips and advice you receive will be in a ‘style workbook,’ so you’ll leave with the confidence of knowing what your personal style is and how to choose the right clothes for you.
Where is this held?
Clients prefer to come to my studio for this service, however, I am happy to travel to clients’ homes too.
How long does it take?
It takes 2 1/2 hours and you can bring along lots of clothes to the consultation that you would like my advice on. For example, how to accessorise or layer certain outfits; what shoes to wear with what and so forth.
