Gill Bushnell image consultant and personal stylist for Northumberland, Tyne & Wear, N & E Newcastle

Hi, I'm Gill Bushnell, House Of Colour's Franchise Owner and Consultant for Northumberland,Tyne & Wear & NE Newcastle

On the recommendation of a good friend who suddenly looked amazing I took the plunge and had "my Colours done" It's no exageration to say that it completely changed my life. I enthused endlessly and encouraged friends and colleagues to share the journey. I discovered that the colours that really work for me are clear, bright and warm. As someone who had been wearing black, grey and neutral colours it was quite a suprise, but also very very exciting. I followed this up with a Personal Style class  and immediately wished I'd done it all much sooner. I now have a wardrobe full of clothes that work for me and my lifestyle,  and more importantly make me fell great whatever the occasion Now as as consultant, I see the amazing transformation of my clients as they complete their own personal journey.  and for me the personal satisfaction of helping in that journey, makes this the most rewarding and enjoyable job in the world.

BUT this isn't about me - it's all about you.  My clients think I perform magic when they come along to a session, but in truth it's YOU who can make the biggest difference to your own life. So what can I offer you? 

I can show you your best colours , and then I can show you the best shapes and styles to compliment you, and  to help you to start building a wardrobe full of clothes that will look amazing.  You'll look fabulous every time you get dressed, you'll gain confidence, and you'll learn to be a savvy shopper, so no more expensive mistakes in the back of the cupboard. Even more importantly you'll have fun discovering the "Real You".

So if you hate shoppping because you don't know what colours and styles to buy, if you have a wardrobe full of clothes and nothing to wear, or if you have just lost your way, then take that first step and book a class now.  I promise to revolutionise your wardrobe and make it work for you.

Each journey starts with that first step. Why not begin yours now and contact me for details on how I can help you to look your best for every occasion.  Some of my classes are published on this site, but please contact me for alternative dates and I will be happy to help.

Wow - I didn't believe I could look so good. I spent a morning with Gill and it's the best investment I could possibly have made.  I can't wait for my Personal Style Day!  Thank you so much.

Why oh Why didn't I do this earlier  - it has saved me so much time and money, and I now shop with so much more confidence because I know what colour to buy and what styles look best. Jan B




I took my daughters along to a colour class with Gill and we had a fabulous day, we laughed and joked throughout - BUT- we all came away having learned so much.  A few weeks later we all went back for our Personal Style Day and it was such an eye opener, we couldn't believe how much better we all looked and felt in the right styles.  Shopping together is such a pleasure as we keep each other on track!

I recommend the Make-up and skin care  class to everyone.  It gave me the confidence to to start wearing it again, as I had felt that my skin care routine had gradually slipped into a quick once over with a bit of soap and water.  Gill helped me to understand how important a good routine is, and then she patiently taught me how to apply it correctly.  I had a great time trying new products and techniques, and I couldn't wait to get home and practice with my new purchase. It's so reassuring to know that I bought the shades that really work rather than the latest fashion shades that usually don't!

My shopping trip was a relvelation, we did more in a couple of hours than I could have done on my own  in a couple of weeks! Gill is such a professional and knew exactly where to find the clothes that suit me, she'd done her research beforehand so that we wasted no time just looking.  I will be doing another one in the Autumn - its  a very worthwhile investment.
