Fashion Consultancy - Learn how to feel confident in what you wear
I am here to help you select or (even) discover new fashion statement pieces. Are you tired of your wardrobe, or do you just want to spice it up? Your old shirt has been sitting in your drawers for ages, and you just don't know how to use it? Your friend's dinner party is coming up, and you just don't know what to wear? This is where I jump in. I'm originally from Italy, but since moving to London I started to experiment with my looks. Soon I found an ally in fashion and started using what I was wearing to express myself and who I truly was. When I wear what I feel good in - I feel confident and ready to 'take on the world'. I want to help women like me to feel the same and truly embrace who they are. I'm an Event Coordinator for a Women's Refugee charity in the morning, but I experiment with clothes during the weekend or whenever I travel (which is where I draw most of my inspiration from). My dream is to open my own rental's club online site so that I can share the dresses and unique pieces I collected along my travels with the broader community. I'd be so humbled to help you, feel free to reach out and ask me any questions.
