Image Stylist, Fashion Feng Shui Consultant & Reiki Practitioner
For me, fashion is so much more than a white top, checked trousers or a paisley skirt. I believe that colours and the clothes you wear greatly influences how you feel about yourself. Dressing with intention and the energy it brings are key. Knowing your colours, understanding the style that suits you and why you choose certain clothes over others can feel extremely liberating.
Being the very best version of yourself can feel empowering, though is not always so easy to achieve. Events in your life like starting a family, getting divorced, changing career or the menopause for example, can affect the way you feel about yourself and your body. I experienced some of this first-hand.
I am Polish and have lived in Poland, France and now the UK and have also worked for a range of different sectors (fashion media, banking and telecoms). My self-esteem and confidence felt fine during my working life. Then, we had our gorgeous children and so naturally a lot of my time was spent at home. I wouldn’t change anything however, along the way I felt that I had lost my sense of identity.
As my children got older, I felt I was in the right space to find me again. So, with my many years of experience in the fashion industry I qualified as an Image Stylist, a Fashion Feng Shui Consultant and also trained as a Reiki Practitioner. I know it sounds cliché but doing what I love has helped me to find myself again and has also enabled me to share my skills & expertise with others too.
I’m also an advocate for ethical fashion, upcycling and reusing. I believe that good quality clothing can certainly prolong the life of your wardrobe. Though, I do find that with high-end pre-loved clothing, you don’t necessarily need to spend a fortune to look and feel great.
My philosophy is that emotions and style are intertwined and I help my clients to modify, accept, challenge & nurture positive style habits & behaviour to feel good inside and out. To discover the colour palette that enhances their eyes, hair and skin tone. Coupled with finding a style that mirrors their personality, their lifestyle and reflects the image they would like to project. To guide them to select the best clothes to wear for their body type, so that they look and feel confident.
Being part of my client’s style journey and seeing them light-up from the inside out is an incredibly humbling experience.
