My Story

Where it all began

I’ve been fascinated by fashion since childhood. I can remember watching the Oscars, aged four and being mesmerised by the colours and styles of the gowns on the red carpet.

London calling

After graduating in Spanish from St Andrews University, it felt like the most natural thing in the world for me to go on to work in retail management for Harrods.

I loved seeing how clothes had the power to help change not only the way my customers looked but also how they felt about themselves.

Whilst bringing up my two girls and living in Wimbledon, I trained in Personal Colour and Style Analysis. This is where I really found my calling in life, everything just came together.

Ay Up Yorkshire

I moved to Harrogate and began working for Phase Eight alongside my Personal Styling business.

It was hugely exciting becoming the Personal Styling Trainer and Ambassador for Phase Eight, with the opportunity to travel throughout the UK helping teams prepare for the new Personal Styling launch.

I had the thrill of being invited to represent this much-loved brand for the Daily Mail “This is what 50 looks like” Inspire campaign. The article and interview celebrated women in their fifties and womenswear brands which employ personal stylists over 50.

The Next Chapter

Style Illuminated is the product of my fashion and retail experience but also encapsulates my own life lessons.

Not all my chapters turned out how I would have imagined; but what I did discover was that my philosophy of taking pride in the way I dressed gave me the confidence and courage to face divorce, single parenthood and life’s ups and downs!

My vision is now to empower you to look and feel fabulous every single day.
