1. Describe yourself in a few key words…
Happy, bubbly, positive, energetic, creative, caring
2. What brought you to become an Image Consultant?
I’ve been in the fashion industry for over 14 years now and it’s something that I was born to do – I love it! I had my first child in 2014 and knew that returning back to my crazy paced job at Topshop Head Office which involved lots of travelling, wouldn’t work for our family now that we had our little girl in our life. I qualified as an Image Consultant in 2015 and I’ve never looked back! I’m able to work flexible hours around my children but also still work in the industry that is my passion.
3. What do you love most about your job?
The clients! I have met some incredible ladies (and men) over the years and hearing each and every one of their individual story, fascinates me. Transforming somebody’s view of themselves and changing their mindset so they have the confidence to own their look is by far the favourite part of my job!
4. Who have you worked with that compliments the work you do?
Topshop, New Look, Oasis and River Island – all varied roles but each brand has helped me in the work I do today.
5. What inspires you?
Bloggers, Instagram and street style. I take bits from all of these. In my personal life, my incredible children inspire me every day to not take life too seriously and to just laugh!
6. What are your favourite brands & who are your favourite fashion designers/influencers?
Zara, Topshop, & Other Stories, Mango, H&M. Victoria Beckham is the ultimate style icon for me, love her! Olivia Palermo is also up there! I also love bloggers A Mothers Edit, The Fashion Bug Blog and The Fashionable Pan
7. How would you describe your personal style?
Casual Glam! Being a mum of two, I spend the week mostly in casual clothes – straight leg jeans, a chunky knit, a pair of Vans…but I always try to add a little bit of glam through a pop of colour, a silky fabric, a bit of leather or a print. And heels – not practical for the school run but whenever I get the chance, I pop a pair on!
