Describe yourself in a few key words…….
Happy go lucky, I have always described myself as a positive person. I can see the best in each situation and every individual person. I believe that you attract what you put out into the world.
What brought you to become an Image Consultant?
I was given an opportunity, a bit like a golden ticket a few months ago. I felt ready for this change in my career. So, I went for it.
What do you love most about your job?
The people I get to meet. I really enjoy meeting and interacting with new people, finding out about them, what they like to do, where they like to go, what they have done to get where they are now. I also enjoy the process, or the journey I take them on and, of course the end product. Seeing a happy client, who has enjoyed the experience, makes me feel like I have made the right choice for them.
Who have you worked with that compliments the work you do?
As a newbie to the industry I have worked with a few people that I feel have taught me new tricks to add to my skill set. I worked closely with Zena and Helen for a wedding fair at Bristol Hotel back in October. I am currently working on my website with an amazing team of geniuses that have been fabulous and patient with me.
What inspires you?
I love to give people the confidence and belief in themselves, I love when someone I have worked with is loving life and their outfits. I want people saying, ‘Yes I love this, you make me wear these clothes like I belong in them’.
What are your favourite brands & who are your favourite fashion designers/influencers?
Vivienne Westwood is my designer idol. Her clothes and the cut of them, when worn, make you feel amazing.
As for influencers I love @kemitelford although she will probably not like to be called that. I love all her pieces that she designs, sometimes I feel that she reads my mind with her clothes. People always comment when I am wearing her designs.
Selfish mother – I love, love, love her tops. Simple design for good causes.
Monki is my favourite high street store at the moment. Loving the colours and shapes they have in store.
How would you describe your personal style?
I like to mash things up, so I will mix colours and prints in an outfit. I love pre-loved and vintage finds, something that has a story. I like small independent labels and brands. I love trainers, or perhaps some snazzy print flats. Animal prints and bold colours together make me happy.
Tell us 5 things about yourself we don’t know?

I knit to help me relax. Currently attempting to knit a nativity scene.
I love DIY. I have a tool box that I am always adding to.
I used to play for a female football team

What is your style philosophy?
Wear what you love. Wear it with confidence. Be comfortable in your skin.
