Describe yourself in a few key words…
I love Style, Art, Travel and Culture. I am creative, collaborative and calm.
What brought you to become an Image Consultant?
I was drawn to becoming an Image Consultant by my desire to build another career which will utilise my transferable creative skills. I have always loved Style and Fashion and Art and would love to put those passions into practice. I have had three previous successful (and quite different) careers and think it is time I had another one…!!
What do you love most about your job?
I love that through this process I can definitely help women (and men) to increase their confidence, discover their best style focus, find a different approach to shopping and probably spend less and wear more.
Who have you worked with that compliments the work you do?
In my varied careers I have worked in the press and art departments of the music business, as a private chef and as a psychotherapist. A lot of the skills I have gained have involved creativity and connecting with people. Listening, challenging and collaborating……And helping people to find their happiness….
What inspires you?
Something old and something new…always an inspiration…a bit like living in Bath.
What are your favourite brands & who are your favourite fashion designers/influencers?
My favourite brands run from the high street : Zara, COS, H&M and department stores like John Lewis to High end designers like Stella McCartney, Rixo, Stine Goya, Alexander McQueen and Peter Pilotto. I always look to Instagram and Pinterest for influencers and am never disappointed…..
How would you describe your personal style?
