As a professional woman working in fashion, I understand the trials and tribulations of looking good and feeling great, despite time being against me.
Like most of us, I have a busy and demanding career as; Head of Fashion at a UK University, Lecturer, Personal Stylist, BBC Radio Fashion Consultant, Style Advisor and promoter of the benefits of the ‘Capsule Wardrobe’.
Teaching ‘time-poor’ professionals how to develop and maintain great style, through a well considered yet minimalist wardrobe, has become both a personal crusade and key driving force behind this blog.
My fashion-focused career spans twenty five years (to date) resulting in an extensive knowledge of how to dress, what to wear and how to shop. This, combined with time living and working in Italy, has developed my fascination with the European approach to style. ‘How do Europeans manage to look so fabulous?’ is one of the many questions I will explore and explain through informative blog articles and essential tips.
What I can say with certainty is that fashion, style and impeccable grooming is an inherent part of their culture and as important to them as good food, fine wine and great company.
With this in mind my Blog is aimed at readers who appreciate, or want to learn how to appreciate, the benefits of looking and feeling great. They want informed, intelligent and achievable advice on what to wear and how to wear it, and guidance on the best places, products and techniques to help them become and remain their most stylish-selves.
Welcome to my world. A world of fashion, beauty and the ultimate in great style…….or as the Italians would say ‘Mia norma di vita!’
