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.”

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.

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.
