I believe every woman is different and has her own personal style DNA and therefore needs individual, personalised advice on how to create visual balance. I have always been passionate about giving women the relevant advice and the tools to dress themselves in the best way, to create a streamlined look using a woman's individual body shape and colouring.
Susan has a way of speaking poetically, everything is to be understood and appreciated. So it's with little wonder her many years of life in fashion PR, has, amongst many other things, amounted to a comprehensive list of colleagues just like myself who are on call to personally vouch for her character, and natural ability.
The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk does exactly what it says on the designer label - it's a retrospective showing the accomplished style journey of the French, avant-garde couturier and his many inspirations.

The grass grows greener, the sun, it shines brighter and the sky is bluer in Beverly Hills." scoffs a resident Angeleno. Yet as the iconic gold and chestnut Beverly Hills shield comes into view, the derisive attitude towards the Golden Triangle city drifts a little, for lo and behold, the sky is suddenly a serene ceiling of cerulean blue.
When my project was chosen to be entered for the 2013 FAD competition at the end of last year I was over the moon and couldn't contain my excitement! A few weeks later I received an email telling me that I had been selected as one of 15 finalists from over 100 entries across the UK and I couldn't believe it!
What's the one thing Fashion Week leaves behind when taking its flight to Milan? Somerset House. Even when the designers have packed down their collections and the super models stepped down from their high heels, the beautiful venue along the Thames stays put and doesn't even get a full week's rest.
