Meet your Personal Stylist...
Hi! I'm Niki, a personal stylist, and over the past 17years I’ve freed thousands of women like you from the frustration of disappointing outfits, by showing them how to dress to make the most of their shape, and filling their wardrobes with clothes they love wearing.
And I want to teach you, because when you're closet contains clothes you enjoy wearing, getting dressed is so much more fun!
I know I can help you, but don't take my word for it...
“I hated getting dressed in the morning, felt really frumpy and like my clothes were just generally unflattering. All of the local clothing stores have closed and I was really struggling finding new items online.
Now It feels like no work at all to pull together an outfit each morning that fits and feels great.I LOVE all of the items Niki sourced and really appreciate the time and attention she put into finding pieces that would be perfect specifically for my shape, style and preferences. I am so thankful I treated myself to this experience. Niki introduced me to items from stores/sites I've never shopped from and included pieces from tried & true places as well. It was a great variety to fulfill the "smart causal" look we had in mind!
I I kind of want to get rid of everything else, because I can make so many outfits from the pieces she sourced. :)”
“I didn’t know what suited me or how to put it together and I wasn’t feeling very confident or fashionable. I'd been wearing the same clothes for years and didn't feel excited about my closet or getting dressed in any way! Now I feel much more confident and I look forward to what I'm going to wear next!
Niki took the time from the start to get to know me and try and decipher what I needed and wanted, when I was very confused myself.
Her availability and ideas have been priceless, and it was very exciting to receive the look book she created and start to order the pieces she had sourced for me. She hit the nail on the head with both style and sizing and I have worn quite a few of my new items and been complimented on my new style, which hasn't ever happened!"
She made shopping easy and stress free!
I had such an amazing experience hiring Niki to style me for performances, photoshoots, and everyday wardrobe. Nikki is a true professional. She listened to my direction and offered great suggestions within my budget. She made shopping easy and stress free! I look and feel great and have had so many compliments on my style!
I had a wardrobe consultation and shopping trip with Niki and both were brilliant experiences. Niki was really down to earth and friendly and made both the shopping and wardrobe sort-through, really fun and enjoyable. After a horrible few years of health problems, the wardrobe and shopping time was such a treat for me and gave me a lot more confidence in how I look and feel. Niki was brilliant in adapting to and accommodating my needs (due to medical condition), both during the shopping, and also in the outfits that she chose. I had a limited budget for the shopping but Niki made the most of the sales and was able to pick out some great items, most of which I never would have picked out before. The information and tips she emailed afterwards was really comprehensive and the CD of outfit photos which she sent, was great to refer back to. I would definitely recommend Niki to anyone; she offers a really friendly, professional, down-to -earth service which can help you find/reclaim your style and feel great in the process!
Niki should be on prescription!
“My session with Niki was a thoughtful birthday present from a loving husband, wanting to encourage his wife-turned-mummy to re-find some confidence and sense of self and style after 18 months of body-change and a degree of style-neglect… It worked!
Niki should be on prescription! She has a wonderful ability to really see you and provide you with appropriate style advice and detailed recommendations that help you to see that you can actually look great, whatever you feel about your body and looks. Niki combines such expert knowledge in her field, with a gentle, compassionate approach that means even those intimidated by the idea of a ’personal stylist’ will soon feel really comfortable.
Although nervous, my time with Niki was really enjoyable and empowering and I’m sad she is not in the UK more often! Whatever your budget, I would recommend Niki to any new (or not-so-new!) mums out there who feel they have pretty much lost sight of themselves and any meaning of the word ’style’ (hint hint to husbands and partners!!) as well as anyone who knows their talents lie far away from the fashion and style world!
Niki goes above and beyond in her work - she is generous with her time and expertise and I’m happy to have started my style journey with her.”
It was a fun, dynamic and very informative workshop, with lots of styling tips! All the tips were nicely explained and very easy to follow. I look forward to follow all your tips! Thank you Niki, great advice! Margarita x
"I hired Niki because I was struggling to get out of a style rut and wanted to push boundaries and step up my style effort. I like having a plan, but I had no plan with clothes. I was buying things that didn’t work together and was only looking at two brands and not looking at other options. Working with Niki was a really nice experience. I enjoyed our email conversations and felt like I was heard, and it was expressed in the look book. Now I am more focused when looking at clothes to buy, and I can focus on quality and usability of items. I’m getting lots of compliments at work on my pieces, and people are noting the versatility of my items!"
This was simply the best gift ever!
Two of my children gifted me with a closet organization package. As I told them later, this was simply the best gift ever! I'm a recently retired teacher who needed to come up with more casual outfits for my new, more relaxed life. Though I was nervous about someone (an expert!) spending hours in my closet, I shouldn't have worried. Niki was friendly, funny, and easy to talk to. She showed me a variety of ways to wear items that were languishing in my closet, and she also let me decide whether it wasn't time to let go of some other items. My wardrobe is more streamlined, I feel better about my figure, and I'm excited about adding a few more items (recommended by Niki). This experience gave me the fresh start I was looking for.
"I felt like I had nothing to wear. The items I had didn't go together and I was just throwing good money after bad buying the wrong things. Now I’m delighted to have a capsule collection that works together. Initially I was a bit worried something might get lost by doing it virtually, but this wasn't the case at all. As soon as we had the Zoom chat, I knew that Niki totally understood my style and what I wanted to achieve. I felt total confidence from this point.
I loved seeing all the items together in the look book. It felt like a ready to wear collection, rather than individual items. Niki’s really given my closet a much needed refresh and refocused it on items that suit me. I feel like I have finally invested wisely in pieces I will wear again and again."
At no point did I feel that I was being made a carbon copy of somebody else’s style.
Niki has provided me with a wardrobe that I feel confident wearing, but more importantly is a style that reflects me. What impressed me the most was the amount of thought that Niki had obviously put into styling me; she took into account my budget, my interests and the look that I wanted to achieve. The clothes she picked out suited me well, and at no point did I feel that I was being made a carbon copy of somebody else’s style.
I ended up trying on a few things I wouldn’t have tried on before, from shops I’d not heard of. Overall it was a very positive experience, and one I would highly recommend.
I had a wardrobe consultation and shopping trip and I enjoyed every minute of it. I couldn't wait to start wearing my old clothes in a new way and my new clothes in the right way. Niki has made me feel confident and good about myself and showed me how to show off the best parts of me, which I didn't know I had at first. She made me feel relaxed and happy. She has a very professional and friendly air about her. The Wardrobe report is brilliant, top tips, do's and don't and photos of me, reminding me how to wear my clothes right. Thank you for such a great gift.
I was so impressed by the obvious care and thought she had taken over her work
"As a working mum, juggling nursery runs with a busy commute and I had found that I had become stuck wearing jeans and t-shirts and trainers until they were worn through! I needed some inspiration for some alternative smarter outfits that were easy to wear and would suit my petite height! Niki, after thorough research created this amazing ‘Look book’ with loads of ideas and even pulled the items together to create different looks for me. Each item had a direct link to the shop so I could buy it straight away. The items were just my style with a few hidden gems that I would have never picked out on my own. Niki's email responses were prompt and very helpful. I was so impressed by the obvious care and thought she had taken over her work. I would highly recommend! ”
I now have a fantastic, stylish capsule wardrobe of smart-casual-creative outfits
I contacted Niki because I needed some help with my work wardrobe. I had lots of boring business clothes from a previous role in a corporate job, and all manner of jeans, t-shirts and hoodies to wear at weekends. However I really struggled to look creative, yet smart, business-like but not too stuffy – it’s a fine line to tread and I found myself either being too corporate or too casual.
I wanted to level-up my work wardrobe so that what I wore really embodied my business and brand. Niki really understood what I wanted to achieve, she hand-picked a fabulous range of clothes and gently guided me to try things on that I never would have looked at before. I was amazed by how many items fitted perfectly! I now have a fantastic, stylish capsule wardrobe of smart-casual-creative outfits.
I feel so much more confident when going to networking events and meeting clients – it’s given me a really boost. My style is much more in-line with my business brand and ethos nowadays, and I have a better idea of what to look for when I’m shopping on my own. All thanks to Niki’s expert help!
I no longer feel ashamed of how I look
I was bought a voucher for a consultation and shopping trip with Niki and I was so nervous and hate shopping so much that it took me a year to pluck up the courage to use it. However, Niki was so kind and patient and encouraging that she made me feel completely different about the whole experience. She was completely professional when I showed her my appalling wardrobe and then went and selected some gorgeous clothes for me to try on in lots of different shops up at The Mall.
She found things which I would never have tried on but which made me feel absolutely great and I have a whole new selection of clothes now so that I no longer feel ashamed of how I look.
Niki did so much more than just take me shopping; she made a major difference to my self-esteem and has made me walk much taller! Thank you Niki!
I would definitely recommend this experience even to those suffering from shopping phobia! I had ended up in tears on previous trips but this trip I really enjoyed!
This wasn't just wardrobe transforming, it was life transforming
I was worried she'd want me to fit in with her ideas of what would work and also that I'd feel obliged to buy stuff but it was clear Niki'd spent a lot of time and effort in gathering pieces that would really work for me and my lifestyle, and she seems to have a sixth sense in knowing not just what suits you but when to encourage you to try certain styles you may never have considered.
This wasn't just wardrobe transforming, it was life transforming - I went out 'with the girls' in one of my new outfits after our trip and got so many compliments, and even at work people have been stopping me in the corridor to say I looked 'gorgeous' and since when had I got a waist! It made me realize that walking round in my comforting baggy clothes was really getting me down and now my confidence has really soared.
Shopping has literally never been that easy and stress-free!
I’ve known Niki for many years - I’ve always loved her creative, edgy flare and I trust she really knows her stuff. I work from home and I know my style but I wanted Niki to help me take it to the next level. I also wanted to have a capsule wardrobe that would be warm and comfortable as well as stylish. That’s not an easy brief but I knew Niki would be able to master it…and she did!
Niki is a delight to work with. The whole process was fun and easy. She takes so much time and care to select the garments and accessories to create complete looks.
I was salivating when I received my finished Look Book. Niki sends links to all the items so you can click and buy - shopping has literally never been that easy and stress-free ! My Look Book contain FIFTY THREE different outfits!! I was blown away. Many items I never would have chosen if Niki hadn’t suggested them are now favorite go-to items. Every item Niki chose for me gets worn and regularly. My clothes work hard for me now and I love that.
It was so easy!
Niki is thorough, timely, and pays attention to what you are really looking for. Her virtual styling is a great option if you find yourself pressed for time and cannot make it out to the shops, need to enhance your current look, need a new look, or need help in planning a specific outfit. I was so happy with Niki's suggestions in helping me find those pieces I was having difficulty with. I can see myself definitely using Niki again in the future- it was so easy. Thanks Niki!
Niki did all the hard work for me
I highly recommend Nikki and her online styling packages I was seeking advice and ideas after reaching a point in my life where I was looking for help to over haul my image and boost my confidence and Nikki was really great at talking through the kind of styles I liked and the clothes that might be suitable she did all the hard work for me and I have to say that I was very pleased with what she picked out for me and have never had so many compliments you wont be disappointed if you choose to take up one of her packages.
I had a wardrobe consultation followed by a shopping day with Niki. I have spent the past 7 years having 3 kids so my body shape had changed considerably and the contents of my wardrobe varied hugely. She helped me have a thorough detox of the wardrobe, sometimes revealing items that I wasn't wearing any more that I could now wear, learn how to mix and match different outfits and accessorize them and learn how to dress for my body shape. The shopping trip helped me fill a lot of the gaps in the wardrobe and has given me the confidence to shop again. She brings a huge knowledge of what's available where, how to look the best you can for your body shape and gives you all sorts of advice along the way. Thoroughly recommended.
I had a wardrobe consultation as I felt I had no clothes and struggled to pull outfits together. Niki was friendly, honest but professional at the same time and left me feeling a lot more confident about my shape, and the clothes I have. She gave me great suggestions of what clothes I was missing and needed. Niki also sent me a email with links to these suggestions. Am looking forward to getting my report in the post and have already started to put her advice into practice and feel so much better for it! Thanks Niki.
It was a great gift and well worth the money.
My partner organised a wardrobe consultation and shopping trip with Niki for my Christmas present. I was a little nervous, but Niki's personable manner soon put me at ease. I was surprised at how many outfit combinations we managed to work out from my existing wardrobe, as well as identifying some well-needed alterations and items that needed to be recycled!
The follow-up shopping trip was great fun. Niki really did do all the hard work and had lots of items ready for me to try on. I was particularly surprised that most of the clothes were inexpensive and included many brands that I hadn't considered before.
Niki was always mindful of my budget and I definitely feel that the trip saved me money and gave me plenty of ideas for the future. Niki's follow-up report, as well as images of the wardrobe consultation, mean I have a good record of what we discussed. I would definitely recommend Niki's services and found both sessions invaluable. Every aspect of her service was highly professional. It was a great gift and well worth the money.
Before I hired Niki, I was at a complete loss! After having kids, I had lost confidence in my appearance and didn’t have a clue what to wear!
Niki was great to work with and she gave me the confidence to try things I would never have chosen for myself. She sourced clothes that perfectly fitted my measurements and found colors that suited me that I wouldn’t usually have gone for. I loved the whole process; it was more than I expected and I’m so happy with my new collection. Having the outfits all put together in a look book is so helpful. I know which items go together to make up the perfect outfit and feel confident that I have something to wear for most occasions. I feel amazing!
She understands that what suits people doesn't just depend on their shape and size, but also their personality
I was worried I was going to a fashionista who was going to slate all my clothes but from the moment I met her I felt totally at ease. She has style, and understands that what suits people doesn't just depend on their shape and size, but also their personality. She introduced me to pieces I would have never looked at before, but now relish putting on and everything new has fit seamlessly into my old wardrobe.
I really got the feeling from Niki that her job isn't about hitting targets, and cashing in, the most important thing is to make people feel good about themselves and what their buying. I would recommend her to anyone. A really lovely person, who could get on with anybody whilst still being very good at her job. Genuinely fab!
"I was in desperate need of a capsule wardrobe. I had somehow ended up with formal clothes, and work clothes, but nothing in between. And 90% of my clothes made me feel average at best. Nothing seemed to reflect my true style or personality.
Niki really took the time to help me pinpoint what I was looking for. She has somehow enabled me to embrace items that would have previously been out of my comfort zone, while still staying true to my personal style. I am so thrilled with my new wardrobe. I now feel more confident and attractive than I have in a long time. Wearing nice clothes that fit well and look good has been a revelation. I would recommend Niki wholeheartedly."
I spent 4 hours with Niki at first in my own home and she went through my existing wardrobe, putting together outfits and advising me of clothes to get rid of. Initially I was a bit worried she might just say 'get rid of it all!'. But she was so lovely and put together clothes I would never have thought of. She took photos of the outfits and identified any gaps in my wardrobe. The following week, we met to go shopping and she had already been before and sourced all the clothes. So I just turned up and had a great 3 hours trying on all the clothes and putting together new outfits. Niki also wrote a report for me, detailing my wardrobe needs and giving me advice on my style.
I didn't really know what to expect when I first met Niki. But I have to say it was one of the most positive experiences of my life. My self confidence was very low before and with each new outfit that she chose for me, I could feel my confidence growing and growing. She really listened to what I said about my lifestyle and her choice of clothes for me was so spot on. She also taught me which shops were good for my shape and which ones to avoid. I now have the confidence to go shopping and find clothes that I know will suit me. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who, like me, got a bit lost and overwhelmed by all the different shops and styles out there.
To me it’s like some kind of magic and she is a great stylist magician!
The first few hours after receiving the parcels I was trying everything that I got one by one with a big smile on my face, I am generally delighted! What I love about the capsule collection Niki created is the fact that I don’t need to care what to put on because I will look great. I can’t really stop admiring that she made such a nice collection of outfits for my figure. To me it’s like some kind of magic and she is a great stylist magician! This comfort when you do not have to think what to put on yourself is incredible. Thank you very much for your help!
The following day a friend saw me and commented on how I looked like me, but more so!
Niki is a genius with a wardrobe. I'm a reluctant clothes shopper to say the least but Niki made the experience a lot of fun. I learnt a lot about what clothes suit me as well as learning more about myself. The following day a friend saw me and commented on how smartly I was dressed. He said that I looked like me but more so, and that's exactly what I wanted to achieve. If you are a reluctant male clothes shopper like myself I couldn't recommend Niki more highly - you'll really enjoy the experience
My children bought me the best Mothers Day present ever!
My children bought me the best Mothers Day present ever, a 4 hour wardrobe consultation with Niki in my own home. My problem was not a lack of clothes, quite the opposite in fact, and I was worried that 4 hours would not be long enough!!
I was really prepared to throw away anything that did not fit or did not suit my body shape. She got me to try on everything in my wardrobes, advising me what should be disposed of and helping me to find different ways of using the same outfits, but to a much better effect. She took photos of the outfits to remind me of what suited me best. At the end of the session, despite throwing items out, I still owned 26 pairs of trousers!!
The following week, she sent me a very comprehensive report on everything we she did and it was full of great tips on how to make the most of my best features. It identified things I was lacking,mainly accessories, to help me create a truly great set of clothes. I also received an email with links to lots of outfits which could be added to my wardrobe at a later date. She helped me to understand what clothes are good for my shape and those I should avoid, so in future I will not have a collection of things which do not suit me. I will probably take her up on her offer to accompany me on my next shopping trip! My session with Niki, was like having my very own Gok Wan (but without the film cameras), and I would certainly recommend her to anyone who is need of a fashion makeover.
I’m sooo delighted that I invested in Niki.
I’ve known Niki for many years - we actually trained together to be stylists. I’ve always loved her creative, edgy flare and I trust she really knows her stuff.
When I booked a photoshoot for my business branding, I had a VERY clear image of what I wanted. I’d made my branding board and actually had many of the main garments to create the look I wanted. I hired Niki to help me source the extras. I didn’t have the time and I no longer work as a stylist so I don’t have my finger on the pulse in the same way as Niki. The idea of spending hours searching for the perfect shoes and the top that would work with my pink tulle skirt made me want to cry (ha!).
I’m sooo delighted that I invested in Niki. She helped make my photoshoot more seamless by sourcing the last few items that pulled all my other items together. She then created an amazing Look Book with all the different outfits - this was a Godsend. I had a location shoot in London so there were no mirror!! This could have been an absolute nightmare but it was easy because I’d just pull out my Look Book on my phone and use that to choose which outfit to wear where.
I won’t hesitate to hire Niki again next time I have a photoshoot. I recommend her to all my clients.
So, if you’re like me and know exactly how you want to look but just need someone to source the items then do yourself (and your business) a huge favour and save yourself so much time and stress by getting Niki to help you pull it off.
Or, if you have no clue what brand image you’re after you definitely need to hire Niki. She’ll help you bring your personality into your brand and add a sense of YOU that’ll make you magnetic to your ideal clients.
