I was a style tragic! I loved clothes but I had no idea how to pull it all together. Sometimes I got it right, but ‘wow’ sometimes I got it very wrong. I remember turning up for interviews with large banking institutions in London with slightly crazy hair (blonde, red with hints of purple). Newly arrived from Australia I wondered why I didn’t make it past the first interview. One dye job later and I was employed.
What I learnt was first impressions matter. How we present ourselves impacts on how others see us.
Before Style Liberation, I worked in the corporate sectors in London and Canberra. I’ve seen first-hand how many wrestle with those essential questions: how do you dress to project a confident, corporate edge? How do you balance a personal style with the expectations around your role? I’ve also seen how simple changes in how we present can elevate a person’s whole outlook.
So much of our confidence and self esteem is linked to how we look and although there are many things that we can’t change, we can enhance our appearance by doing some simple things like choosing the best colours and shapes that flatter our colouring and body shape. That’s what I love. It’s as simple as understanding what works for you and what doesn’t. I guide you through the whole process and show you how to put it into practice.
There’s nothing better than seeing the smile on someone’s face when they look in the mirror and love what they see.

Between dress codes, fashion trends, body shape and style personality no wonder it can be confusing and tricky to put together a polished and professional look.
