Prior to my Colour & Style consultations, I possessed that wardrobe in desperate need of inspiration. I always felt frumpy, lacked self-esteem and, despite having a successful career, hid behind my larger than life personality and constantly wore black! I was delighted (and a little scared) to discover that I am a Sprinter Winter and look fabulous in bold Winter like colours and I now love them. As a Classic Gamine I know what every garment I buy needs to have to make me feel amazing and not like I am wearing someone else’s clothes!
I now have a wardrobe of clothes in the right colours for my skin tone, which all mix and match perfectly. I never waste money on clothes that don’t suit me and I get more compliments than I have ever had.
I have left a successful Corporate career in Engineering in South Africa to join House of Colour as a Consultant because I firmly believe the way we feel about ourselves has a massive impact on our careers and how people perceive us. With this background I very clearly understand how dressing correctly for work and pleasure impacts on the impression people make of you.
I believe I am one of the luckiest people in the world because my career now is so rewarding, especially seeing first-hand the positive impact of what I do has on my clients. I 'shine the light of my clients potential though Colour & Style'. The Potential is there, they sometimes have just lost or forgotten it!

Prior to finding House of Colour, I thought that being well dressed and looking good was either a matter of knowing how to do it or not knowing, and I was very much in the latter group! Little did I know that there was a secret formula to it!
Having had a career as a pilot, only science backed concepts made sense to me. In my eyes there was no logic to fashion, it was fleeting, environmentally unfriendly and not scientific, until I stumbled across House of Colour. House of Colour’s science-based research for both what colours to wear to enhance your natural beauty and what styles each body shape and personality need to feel comfortable and “like themselves” changed my life. I went from never knowing what to wear to having an easy, user-friendly wardrobe that perfectly fits my lifestyle.
I was thrilled to be analysed as a “Summer” the soft muted cool tones perfectly harmonize with my skin tone, and my clothing personality “Classic Ingenue” allows me to embrace my perfectionism whilst honouring my body geometry. Knowing that I need to wear structured, elegant, delicate, neat and high-quality items, in soft cool muted colours ensures that what I purchase, not only get appropriate usage but are a representation of who I am.
As a House of Colour Consultant, I have ladies (and men!) walk through my studio door as a client, but by the end of the session they leave as a friend, what we do in our house of colour studios truly changes lives for the better. Helping people to see themselves as their very best is priceless, and I am lucky to be able to do that every day.
