Some of our satisfied corporate clients

our clients say

“Janette’s ability to really understand what I like was quiet extraordinary…I have worked with stylist before and I have to say this was the most fun, most educational and most productive session. Janette is indeed my best shopping find ever”
Justine – Senior Executive

“This has not just been a makeover, as “makeover” in my mind lasts a night or so, but a transition in physical, emotional and psychological wellbeing. I have NEVER received so many genuine compliments ever before.” Victoria

“Janette, you came into my life when I desperately needed a change. The style and colour consultations we had were invaluable. Thank you for curing my colour blindness as I no longer see only in black, brown and gray.” Susanna

“You showed me things that I would have never looked at in the shop. And the silk blouse from jigsaw with the paisley pattern is my favourite — I would have never bought it! ” Anjta


“I wanted to say a big thank you to you for being such a great shopper and for making the whole task of buying clothes much more fun. I always learn more about what works, what doesn’t and why!” Georgia

How To Discuss Image Issues With Staff

Do you find it difficult discussing Image issues with your team members? 

I asked this question of many senior executives that I’ve worked with over the past 10 years and the resounding response was “YES”.

Discussing image issues with employees has to be one of the most challenging conversations to have.
As an Image Consultant, I often receive requests from Management to address “image” issues one-on-one with a team member. 

Giving feedback, particularly to the opposite gender around “image”, can be tricky and many managers don’t feel equipped to deal with this situation. 
However, I believe this feedback is always best when delivered from the line manager who has an established relationship with the employee.
Given many organisations have more recently adopted a “Smart Casual” dress policy, the need to have this discussion has increased. 
Although many organisations have an established dress policy, it’s not a guarantee that employees will follow it. 


In response to this need, I’ve developed a step-by-step guide that I have used successfully to assist me in giving sensitive feedback. 
I have applied Mark Horstman's 5 step feedback sandwich technique and it's a very simple and straight forward model to use.
I hope it helps provide a framework to help make a potentially uncomfortable situation a reasonable one.

How To Align Your Personal Style With Your Business Objectives

Here is a recent comment from a colleague. Do you resonate with this?

"For years I dressed professional ignoring my personality, so now I'm trying to come back from that extreme and do it in a way that's still me whilst business appropriate".

One of the most common questions I receive from senior executives and entrepreneurs is "How do I inject some of my personality in my personal brand without it affecting my credibility"?

The short answer is YES you can inject your own personality into your outfit but there are a few considerations. Let's break them down.

1. You need to know what your dressing style is
Are you a dramatic diva, are you sporty chic, are you classic cool or perhaps a feminine dresser? Once you know this you can start to select pieces that are reflective of your style and integrate them into your professional look. Here are examples:







2. There is a time and place for everything.
If you're meeting with a potential client for the first time I'd encourage you to err on the side of caution. Once you've established a relationship with them then you'll have more leeway to inject more of your personality into your clothing. Remember they want to know if they like you, trust you and want to do business with you!

3. Use your personal style to your advantage
I have a colleague who loves to wear hats and she is known for that. It's become her symbol and brand. Then there are people like Naomi Simson who wears Red to every public / T.V appearance. The colour red fits with the branding of her business "Redballoon". It's a great way to be remembered particularly in a noisy and cluttered market.

4. Make it an attraction, not a distraction
If colour is the very first thing our eyes notice then colour placement becomes paramount. Our main communication portals are our eyes and mouth. Ideally, when talking with someone, we want them focused on what we are saying. Placing colour high up in your business outfit will ensure the focus is on your message. Consider a high placed accessory, lipstick, earrings, tie, glasses, brooch, scarf as your vehicle to direct others to where you want them to look.

5. Who is your audience
Do you work in a male or female dominated industry? There is a great image concept I use with clients called "Yin / Yang". We all exhibit Yin (feminine) and Yang (masculine) qualities in our physical characteristics. Once you know where you sit on this continuum you can start to select pieces in your outfit that will either make you look more yin or more yang and this should be determined by your audience and your professional objectives. Here is a previous post on this. Look at the images above to give you direction.Here is a previous post on this

6. Industry Counts
There are some industries which are far more conservative than others such as the legal and banking industries. For these industries adding your, personal style into your everyday professional look will come back to the point above about being aware of your objectives for the day and who you plan to meet with and what their expectations are of you.

So as you dress tomorrow I want to to consider how you can inject some personality into your professional look!
