Describe yourself in a few key words…
Creative, unique, passionate, dedicated, up for a laugh…
What brought you to become an Image Consultant?
I’ve worked hard over the last 10 years to develop my knowledge of fashion by researching new trends which has led me to freelance as a fashion buyer and seller, but I have a real passion for helping people to be the best version of themselves. In my opinion, fashion and style enables people to express their personalities in a unique way, which is why I’m pursuing and am passionate about a career in Personal Styling.
What do you love most about your job?
As a shy teenager, I mostly channeled my creative expression through my style and finding ways to adapt the current trends to my unique style personality. For some people trying to keep up with trends and finding suitable clothes for them can be a stressful experience; I would like to help people to make it a more enjoyable and stress free experience. With my own experience, and my passion for making a difference to real people, I do believe I can help people improve their lives through their style.
Who have you worked with that compliments what you do?
I have developed relationships with a variety of international wholesalers and suppliers and have sourced fashion and other products for clients based on their specifications and my guidance. I have also completed a short course fashion buying with the Fashion Academy which taught me the basics of being a fashion buyer, and a short course with the Prince’s Trust which involved marketing, advertising and bookkeeping in business. These have all prepared me for a career in personal styling and compliment my personal and professional relationships.
What are your favourite brands, and who are your favourite fashion designers/influencers?
I love taking designer looks and outfits and sourcing them in high-street versions from places like Zara, River Island, H&M etc – you get the designer look for affordable prices, and it makes luxury fashion accessible for everyone despite their budget.
