Colette Douglas image consultant and personal stylist for Wandsworth / Wimbledon
Welcome to my webpage. I am your Image Consultant and Colour Analyst for Wimbledon and Wandsworth. I offer colour analysis and image & style consultations for both men and women, wardrobe review and updating sessions, make-up lessons and wedding make-up for brides, as well as individually accompanied shopping visits.
You can book classes on line, if you don't see the dates you would like, further dates for sessions available on request by email or telephone. Also wardrobe review and shopping trips available and booked via email.
Following a career in banking with Bank of Ireland I trained with House of Colour in 1991 and have extensive experience living and working as an image and style consultant in London, Ireland, Sweden and The Netherlands. Since my return to the UK in 1998 I have been based in Wimbledon.
I work from my home studio a short walking distance from Wimbledon mainline and underground stations. My classes can be for individuals or small groups. In addition I hold regular morning and evening introductory sessions and can provide gift vouchers for all types of consultation, which make great presents!
I make a point of understanding individual needs and ensuring clients are relaxed and hence receptive to the information and advice I provide. For some clients, particularly new ones, understanding what colours and styles suit them best is a totally new experience, whilst others who already have some knowledge gained from a session taken some years previously, have a good understanding of colour and image fundamentals but prefer to come and see me from time to time for wardrobe updates/tailormade sessions/shopping trips or for a make-up session.
Whatever the subject and whether clients come to see me individually or in a small group, I try hard to make sure they enjoy their consultations with me.
I am delighted to be a holder of the star consultant award for the past 5 years.
"My colour analysis with Colette was the best birthday present I could ever receive. It was quite simply life changing and has given me so much more confidence! Getting dressed for work is now such fun and I get full use out of my whole wardrobe, now that I have reviewed it. The only problem is how to deal with all the compliments! I really recommend doing the clothing personality and makeup sessions as well!"
"I can honestly say that having done both the colour and style sessions it has totally changed the way that I feel about clothes and more importantly about myself. I have gone from someone who genuinely hated shopping to someone who knows what cut, shape and style suits me and most importantly which colours will make me look and feel my best. I no longer dread an event of whatever description, I am wearing so many of the clothes I have had in my wardrobe for years because I understand what works for me and how to wear it well. I am confident in the clothes that I am wearing which makes me walk taller!"
"Thank you Colette for another wonderful wardrobe review. Now I can actually see what I've got for Spring/Summer; I know what I need to buy - and not to buy! and now have some new ideas for what will go with what to create completed outfits. All done in one afternoon - and whats more it was fun!"
"I really enjoyed these sessions with Colette on image styling. She is geat and so easy to work with and really made me feel comfortable and able to move my personal styling forward. I feel much more confident when out shopping now and know that I have the knowledge to get the right outfit for my shape in the right colours to make me shine out. These sessions were such a great experience, I would thoroughly recommend Colette to help others in their personal styling journey."
