Lorraine Griffin image consultant and personal stylist for Rainham/Sittingbourne/Faversham
Hi my name is Lorraine and I am the House of Colour consultant for Rainham, Sittingbourne and Faversham areas.
I first heard of House of Colour through a work colleague who had been for colour and style analysis. She was full of praise for the experience and I was looking for something really special for my friends birthday so I booked both of us for our colours. I had no idea that buying my friend this experience would also end up being the biggest gift I could give myself.
I was very much play it safe girl, had alot of black in my wardrobe. I was excited and a little apprehensive as to what I would be told on the day. It honestly was one of the most fantastic experiences I have ever had. Its a day of self discovery, the moment you can see what colour can do for your appearance, can make your eyes look brighter, your skin smoother even make you look younger. I found the whole experience enlightening and empowering. I was full of confidence at the end of the day and couldnt wait to go back and learn about style also.
My journey started 7 years ago and I havent looked back. Alot has changed in that time, I got married had twin girls and swapped working life as a retail buyer to be a stay at home mum. That is until now, I am starting a new chapter of my life in becoming a consultant and I cant wait to share this amazing experience with my clients. As a consultant I have the opportunity to combine my love of fashion with helping others on their own personal journeys into the world of colour and watch first hand their transformations. I get to see their confidence grow and hear about all the positive changes they have experience along the way.

Lorraine was very friendly and made me feel the centre of her attention. It was very interesting, and quite exciting to see the colours bring me to life particularly as I has no make up on!
It was just fasinating, finding some of my wow colours that I never would have expected. I feel it would give people more confidence with their clothing purchases and not make expensive mistakes.
