A successful wardrobe will have appropriate clothes that suit your current lifestyle. I will help you sort through and weed out what you don’t wear or feel good in, as well as give you advice and inspiration as to what will update it and fill in the gaps.
NB: In order to make best use of this fantastic service, I strongly recommend that you have already had a Colour and Style Consultation with me to fully understand what works for you and what to avoid.
HOW IT WORKS
I come to your house and we discuss what you are wanting to achieve.
Then I will go through and take out the items that are not a flattering colour/style/fabric/detail and organise it so you can see everything you own (and therefore be more likely to wear it)
The items in the discarded pile are totally up for discussion. I am not there to wrestle anything away from you; if you want to keep it, I will find a way to make it work for you!
You find items you have fallen out of love with and I will find ways to reinvent them.
I will take photos of you in the different outfit combinations so you don’t have to try to remember them!
I will help you to make a list so that when you (or I) go shopping you will only be “filling in the gaps” rather than randomly buying.
I can also do mini-wardrobe updates at the beginning of each season, helping you determine which essentials you need to buy.
I accepted a challenge of buying no clothes for a year, and then realised that I needed my wardrobe to be in really good shape before I started if I was to stand a chance of completing the full 12 months without looking like a rag.
I follow Kate on Instagram, and love her posts, so contacted her for some professional guidance. Kate is funny, relaxed and approachable, and the two sessions I had with her were so helpful (colour/style and wardrobe consultation) wow! I wish I had done it years ago and would recommend to anyone - there were a lot of a-ha moments! Kate helped me get rid of all the items that weren’t working for me - which were many... and concentrate on all the good stuff, which was also quite substantial. My wardrobe has been totally streamlined and it’s fabulous! We then filled in gaps with a little online shopping (Kate knows her stuff inside out, and can find things that would take me an age in seconds) and I have a list of useful additions that I’m looking for before my challenge starts in December. I feel confident with what I have that I can make it through the year - and I am definitely definitely booking a wardrobe refresh with Kate come December 18!! Already looking forward to it!! A really brilliant experience

"I found Kate’s Colour and Style session really helpful. She made it easy to ‘let go’ of any mistakes and to understand why I had made those mistakes so I wouldn’t repeat them. She is encouraging rather than judgmental and it was actually cathartic to get rid of the things that weren’t working. Kate is inspired in her ability to put together outfits from what’s already there and to make the wardrobe I already had work harder and the exercise turned out to be extremely cost effective and FUN! My wardrobe is now so well organised that I can open it every morning with real pleasure. I highly recommend working with Kate!"
