Our goal is to empower women to feel fabulous through the desire to have, to be and to feel.
Q4. How did our personal styling course prepare you for your next step?
A. The course provided us with the foundation and skills to start our journey, as well as meeting fellow trainee Hannah Davis. Emmeline and the team have been a great support and mentor to us.
Q5. What do you love most about being a personal stylist?
A. We love helping other women realise how fabulous they are, and how an updated wardrobe can put a spring in your step!

A. Probably too many to mention!! Sienna Miller, Emma Willis, Louise Redknapp and Holly Willoughby.

Q8. Where are the best places to shop in Aberdeen?
A. We have two main shopping centres in Aberdeen which house favourites such as Topshop, Warehouse, Zara and John Lewis.
We have a few independent boutiques out-with Aberdeen which are great for supplying individual designs, or outfits for a special occasion
