“How would you describe shopping with Henry in 3 words?
Reassuring, exciting, absolute pleasure

How would you describe the results of us working together in 3 words?
Confidence-boosting, game-changing, profound

What positive changes has it had on your life? Have you received any feedback from friends, family or work colleagues?
So many positive changes. Having Henry's support and expertise means that I feel so much more confident in myself. I feel that I'm on the same level as my clients rather than being embarassed or uncomfortable with how I looked before. I feel credible and powerful, but still myself. On a practical level, it's so much easier to get dressed in the morning or pack for going away. I feel more strategic and pulled together which has freed up a lot of headspace. I also feel more pleasure towards clothes and my visual identity. I enjoy looking at things now rather than not knowing where to start. Clients totally picked up on this. As soon as I started wearing my new outfits they complimented me on my style and clothes. This hadn't happened before. My husband also loved what I was wearing.

How did you find working with a male personal shopper? What would you tell someone who was potenitally hesitant to do so?
I really liked it. I never considered it to be a barrier or blocker. In fact I saw it as a bonus as I preferred to have a male insight. I didn't think about it at the time, but I enjoyed that it was more neutral than I imagine working with a woman. I think the energy is different - calmer and less of an expectation that I should know what I want from clothes. Also no comparison with a female shopper.

Which part of the process did you find most interesting or enjoyable? Why was this?
Getting the clothes! I really enjoyed doing the prep work as it was great to actually focus my attention on what I wanted to achieve. It made it feel more strategic than just going shopping. I was nervous that the day together could be awkward or uncomfortable eg if I didn't like things or felt forced into things. This didn't happen at all. Henry is gentle but commanding meaning that I trusted him 100% but also felt he was going to be honest with me and I could be honest in return.

Were there any parts of the process that you found less useful or enjoyable? If so, why?
No I enjoyed it all.

Have you had any experiences with a personal shopper before me? (In-store, online or independent?) What were the noticeable differences?
No. It's something I'd considered but until I found Henry I wasn't drawn to the people I saw. I liked Henry's strategic and calm approach which was obvious from his site and also the clothes he picked for other clients. He felt more "cool" than some of the other shoppers I saw. Some of them looked a bit "naff" (terrible word but I think sums it up!). I felt less inclined to use a store shopper as I would imagine they may be motivated by sales targets etc. I'd wanted to do the jeans shopping thing in Selfridges but I find that vibe a bit intimidating so didn't. Also I don't like that you don't get chance to build a relationship - you don't know who you're going to get.

“How would you describe your experience with Henry in 3 words?
Inspiring, fun, effortless

How would you describe the results of us working together in 3 words?
Upgraded, stylish, cool

What positive changes has it had on your life? Have you received any feedback from friends, family or work colleagues?
I immediately feel much better dressed and more confident. It's only day 2 so limited feedback so far!

What would you tell a potential client to convince them they should book an appointment with me?
Henry has a wealth of experience, is extremely customer-focused, and nothing is too much trouble. We spent 7.5 hours shopping on day 1 and it felt like an hour. The results were immediately visible. And it was good fun!

Which part of the process did you find most interesting or enjoyable? Why was this?
Most interesting was culling 50% of my current wardrobe, followed by trying out completely new looks. It was enjoyable to learn about Henry's perspective on the industry and on personal shopping in general.

Were there any parts of the process that you found less useful? If so, why?
Every stage was insightful and relevant.

“How would you describe your experience with Henry in 3 words?
Focused, Fun, Inspiring

How would you describe the results of us working together in 3 words?
Wardrobe I love!

What positive changes has it had on your life? Have you received any feedback from friends, family or work colleagues?
Yes - positive feedback across the board.
The wardrobe edit means I open door each day to a range of clothes I enjoy wearing.

What would you tell a potential client to convince them they should book an appointment with me?
A few days with Henry and I had a wardrobe for all seasons that I was confident to stride out in again; the clutter was recycled - and best of all Henry's knowledge of more ethical fashion choices meant I was able to support more responsible retailers.”

Getting to know Henry

It is obvious when you work with me that I love my job, each day is different, each brief brings its own challenges and rewards. However, the heart of what I love to do is give my clients confidence and pride through their personal appearance.

My clients often question my stamina to shop all day, every day (it can be pretty exhausting!), the simple answer is I don’t.
My week is split in two, since 2015 I have held a permanent part-time role as a senior lecturer at Nottingham Trent University on their Fashion Communication & Promotion BA and MA courses.

The areas I specialise on this course are brand communication, retail trends & behaviours and trend forecasting. All of these subjects directly influence and improve my ability as a personal shopper, a lot of the research I am involved with can be passed on to my clients to improve their time with me.

A particular module I am involved in at the University currently, revolves around the ethical concerns, and the environmental impact of the fast fashion industry. This is something that is of great personal interest to me, as I feel that there is not enough public awareness brought to this topic.
As a result I donate a percentage of my monthly personal shopping earnings are donated to ‘Labour Behind the Label’. This is a charity that campaigns to improve the working conditions, and empower workers involved in the global garment industry.

HOLD THE FRONT PAGE - Goldman Sachs introduce a new dress code

This weekend Goldman Sachs made the front page of the Financial Times, however this time it was to do with the clothes their staff should to wear to work, rather than fluctuating markets or share prices.

Something I always talk to my clients about is body language and confidence in clothes.

You can immediately tell when someone feels uncomfortable in an outfit or style of dressing, a more appropriate and comfortable alternative will exist it just needs finding.

As you properly know I am very conscious of how wasteful the clothing industry can be and how I am keen to encourage clients to choose more timeless items that will give them more than a few seasons wear.
