Working with Ellen

If you are committed to making a change in your image & style then I would love to work with you. I can help you to build a personal image which is both authentic & shows you at your greatest potential. This will change the way you look, feel & shop forever. The relatively small investment of time & money is far outweighed by a life time of enjoying the positive results. On average people wear 15% of their wardrobe 85% of the time. I work with my clients to create a wardrobe that works more effectively and efficiently. Getting dressed is something we all do every day. Making that process as simple and enjoyable as possible just makes sense. What you wear affects you psychologically. It can profoundly alter your mood and how you are perceived by those around you. It also influences how others respond to you. Wether we like it or not, there is a huge amount of evidence to show that those who dress well are more likely to attract success, good service and popularity. The right cut and fabric can dramatically change the appearance of your body and your self-image. A good figure is more a matter of visual proportion and balance than of height and weight. Understanding how to dress to flatter your individual characteristics can be life-changing.

Who I work with

I work with my clients to produce a look that is right for them. As a designer I am not limited to just one style. A successful personal image is totally unique to that individual. I will work with you to methodically create the look that is authentically you. I currently have clients of both sexes ranging in age from 13 to 64 years. I have regular clients who I have worked with many times and come back each season for a wardrobe update.  Other clients just come for a specific piece of advice. Each client is important to me and I recognise that the services I offer need to reflect their individual needs. I love the variety.

Where I work

 I generally work out of my Northampton based studio, but will consider travelling to other locations on a case by case basis. My clients are all individuals and my focus is always to ensure that my clients experience is tailor made to suit their objectives. I currently cover the areas of Bedford, Cambridge, Market Harborough, Milton Keynes, Northampton, Peterborough, Stamford, and Wellingborough.

Take a look at my FOR WOMEN, FOR MEN & FOR GROUPS pages for information about the image consultancy services I offer.

INVEST IN YOUR IMAGE

Most of my clients have a good sense of what suits them but they don’t have a clear understanding of why. I provide the clarity. When you really understand how to emphasise & celebrate your best attributes it saves such a lot of time choosing outfits and helps to avoid expensive shopping mistakes. It is estimated that on average we waste about £15,000 over the course of an average lifetime on regret clothing purchases. The question isn’t so much wether you can afford to us the service of an Image Consultant but rather wether you can afford not to.

Services Include

  • Wearing the right colours means you look fresh and vibrant. To begin with we will have a brief chat to establish your goals and objectives in line with your personality and lifestyle needs.Then we will analyse your natural colouring and your best colour combinations for both clothing and accessories will be demonstrated. Advice will also be given about colours to avoid. You get a personal colour swatch book and colour report to take home with you as an aide memoire.

  • The most instant way to see the refreshing effect of wearing your best colours is with makeup. For ladies I recommend this as part of the colour consultation where we select a pallet of makeup in your best colours and according to your desired look. I can advise on makeup techniques and effects to suit you, your face shape and individual physical characteristics. Makeup is applied.

    You will get a record of the cosmetics used and a technique guide to take home with you. There is an option to purchase any of the makeup used during your consultation.

Advice regarding cut, fit and finish for both clothing and accessories will be given. This can include hairstyles and glasses. Where possible these will also be demonstrated using samples and images.
