Describe yourself in a few key words… 

Ambitious, Hard-working, Kind, Stylish.

 

What brought you to become an Image Consultant?

I’ve always been interested in personal styling. I decided to study Fashion Management at London College of Fashion which lead me into Fashion Buying, but Styling has continued to be a passion of mine and something I’ve kept a close eye on during my career. I love being able to help people feel good about themselves.

 

What do you love most about your job?

I love being able to help people look and feel more confident in their own skin. Clothes have the power to change the way you feel and I always want this to be a positive effect on my clients.

 

What inspires you? 

I am obsessed with fashion and spend hours trawling online, in the shops and doing research on catwalk fashion, which all inspire me. Pinterest and Instagram are a source of inspiration when it comes to outfits and street style. I also love to travel and visit museums, markets and shops in other countries which I take a lot of inspiration from.

What are your favourite brands & who are your favourite fashion designers/influencers?

Some of my favourite brands are Air & Grace, & Other Stories, Essentiel Antwerp, Ganni and H&M. I definitely love the Scandi style and this is very much represented in my favourite brands listed above. My favourite influencers include Anine Bing, Erica Davies and Debbie Le. My favourite fashion designers are Alessandro Michelle at Gucci, Phoebe Philo (especially when she was at Chloe and Celine), Karl Lagerfeld when he was at Chanel.

 

How would you describe your personal style?

My personal style can very much change depending on my mood on a particular day. I have an edgy style which can be quite eclectic but on the other hand I also like to be quite polished and chic. I like to experiment with different trends but also have a lot of leopard print in my wardrobe, which I definitely see as a neutral! Monochrome style is one of my favourite looks.
