According to the definitions of the Oxford English Dictionary
Fashion – a popular or the latest style of clothing, hair, decoration or behavior
Style – one’s usual way of behaving or approaching situations; elegance and sophistication
Coach Me Beautiful’s approach to personal fashion styling is not just about fashion. Fashion is all about what designers create and manufacture and what “experts” tell you is hip and current. Fashion is associated with trends and ideas that are popular one minute and lose favour the next. I believe fashion – clothes, accessories, makeup and hairstyles – merely gives us tools to create the public impression we want. Fashion is all about what’s out there; style is all about you and what’s happening inside you.
Style is an attitude. It’s a potent external expression of your character, spirit and passions. When you know what your personal fashion style is, you project it confidently and you behave in line with it. Style sets us apart whilst fashion attempts to lump us all together. Style can be liberating whilst fashion suffocates.
Each of Coach Me Beautiful’s personal styling packages is designed to help you define, articulate and implement the personal fashion style that is already in you.
How we help you find your personal style
Based on my own experience working working with clients, I created Coach Me Beautiful’s FLAIR program, which is unique because it focuses not just on styling skills, but on self awareness and understanding.
The first step to pinpoint your own personal fashion style is to undertake self-analysis to help you embrace who you are – what you love, how you live and what you want to portray. Each of our personal styling packages starts off with a detailed (and fun) exploration of these questions:
- What is your age and occupation?
- What do you like and hate?
- Where do you live?
- What do you find beautiful?
- What inspires you?
- How would you like to be perceived?
- What parts of your body do you like to accentuate? Downplay?
Once you’ve thought carefully through these questions, you will begin to realise that you have a very particular – and unique – personal style. Only then do I show you how to implement your personal fashion style.
Yes I do offer all the services that other personal fashion stylists do. I will help you edit and organise your wardrobe. I will take you personal shopping to help you gain confidence buying clothes that fit and flatter you. I’ll show you how to accessorise and make your wardrobe versatile and interesting. All these subsequent steps encourage you to experiment and refine your personal sense of style.
The results you’ll get
At the end of our personal style journey together, you’ll have the power and confidence of knowing exactly how to dress yourself in a way that is authentic to the you. You’ll be able to tap into reservoir of confidence whenever you need a boost and approach each day as the best version of yourself – feminine, radiant and inspiring.
