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.
The world is filled with young talented people who dream of making it in fashion. They want to be the next star designer like Alexander McQueen or the next star stylist such as Micaela Erlanger and dress fabulous celebrities.

This weekend I'm tracksuit shopping - old school Adidas tracksuit shopping, to be specific. I'm going all out for the classic three-stripe, totally man-made matching numbers that made such a lasting impression on me when the likes of Run DMC popularised them in the mid-1980s and have been sneaking into my wardrobe ever since.
There is always at least one venue at the bi-annual London Fashion Week that strays a little further from the main hub of the event, Somerset House, and insists on testing my time management and cardiac health.
