The other day I was watching an episode of the Graham Norton show when I came across a story that really struck a cord with me. During a dinner in LA, Zac Efron was passed a mobile phone only to realise that Michael Jackson was at the other end of the line. Shocked - Michael had been a key inspiration in Zac’s career - he went on to cry and profess his admiration for the legendary artist. After a few minutes, where Michael also shed tears of joy and confessed to appreciating Zac’s work, the following exchange followed:
Michael: “Zac, isn’t it awesome?”
Zac: “Uh, hmmm… what?”
Michael: “Dreams really do come true…”.
I share this story as I embark in one of the most exciting chapters in my life… I have started my very own personal styling business. To say that I’m excited would be a huge understatement!
Style and fashion have been my passion for as long as I can remember; from creating outfits for my Barbie dolls in the 70’s, going through a few style ‘experiments’ in the 80’s and immersing myself in the splendour and variety of European fashion in the ‘90s and “noughties”. More recently, I discovered a whole new canvas in my three children and even my husband (though often begrudgingly!).
At the heart of my love for clothes and fashion is the way they make me feel. When I look good and like what I’m wearing, I feel happier, lighter and more confident… and life just seems more fun! And that’s what inspired me to start this new venture. The idea that I can help other people feel better about themselves and lead more fun-filled lives really excites me.
I hope to inspire you with the latest trends and looks, sharing insights into colours, shapes and styles. 2018 promises to be a very exciting year and I look forward to going on this amazing journey with you.
After all, dreams really do come true...
