“Louise’s innate and timeless sense of style is a natural fit to complement her Colour Palette Profiling. As a regular client at Bella Donna in Forbes, I often enjoyed Louise’s unique personal service which she developed in the course of her twenty years in the boutique. I still love many of the pieces I selected there with her excellent guidance. I recently booked a colour consultation with Louise at my ‘Go To’ Chapter 2 shopping destination. The workshop included a colour profile, makeup audit, and basic makeup application. I then signed up for a complete personal styling experience, identifying my body shape and proportions, and adapting those characteristics to my personality and lifestyle. For my wardrobe makeover Louise was very systematic and thorough, organising my whole wardrobe on matching hangers in a few short hours, including reinstating some lovely clothes that I had bought from her boutique up to twenty years ago! She definitely has an eye for stylish clothes that will last for decades. Louise identified some key wardrobe items that I was lacking, that would enhance and complete a number of outfits that I already owned, and would bring my whole wardrobe together. She showed me I was wasting money buying clothes that I already owned, just needing to add some staple pieces to make them more versatile. Louise helped me to choose two black jackets, one classic and one ‘fun’, and by mixing & matching them with pieces from my existing wardrobe (thanks to Chapter 2 in Forbes), I came up with 33 new outfits! I was thrilled with the results. I love my new wardrobe – everything colour coordinated, neatly hung, and easy to find – if you can’t find it, you can’t wear it. Louise’s advice is not limited to clothes – she looks at jewellery, glasses, handbags, shoes, colours and even hairstyles – everything that goes to create style.

Louise has given me the confidence to wear items more than one way and to add colour – time and money so well spent!”

“As a banking and finance lawyer I want my personal style to be a seamless extension of my role as ‘trusted adviser’.

I want to ensure that my style doesn’t offend the overall impression I want to leave with clients and colleagues every time I meet them.

Louise gives me the tools and the confidence to piece together my favourite items in ways that are edgy and that express my changing personal style.

I have learnt from Louise to know what is in my wardrobe as well as the importance of shopping with purpose – I never thought it possible but with Louise’s help I now have less in my wardrobe but more to wear!”

“Although I live 10,000 miles from Louise, she is the person I turn to first when I have an important event or party to attend, a meeting to go to, a speech to make.

She has an innate ability to assess the situation, understand what will be appropriate, add a little edge and glamour, and make me feel great.

Now that she has helped me stock my wardrobe, she can also recall what is there and tells me what to pair with what. People ask me if I have a stylist, and I say better than that, I have a someone who knows my style, and challenges me to be creative and innovative.”
