Sarah Biancardi image consultant and personal stylist for Ampthill/Flitwick
"Real style is never right or wrong. It's a matter of being yourself on purpose." - G. Bruce Boyer
The key to feeling comfortable in your own skin and looking confidently stylish is understanding how to dress the person you truly are on the inside, in a way that also flatters your body shape, proportions and natural colouring. I specialise in creating lifelong confidence for busy people through their clothing choices. I'm passionate about empowering you to dress your honest self in your everday life and in making your wardrobe work hard for you, while saving you time and money for your individual budget and life stage. Having previously juggled a corporate career alongisde being a mum of two, I can relate to the constant need to wear different hats and the practical challenges this can present. My skills and experience have equipped me to compassionately guide you through your ever-evolving, unique personal style, at your own pace.
"Fast fashion is like fast food. After the sugar rush it just leaves a bad taste in your mouth." - Livia Firth

I can’t recommend Sarah highly enough - she is wonderful. From the moment you arrive she puts you at ease and makes you feel very welcome in her gorgeous studio. Sarah’s knowledge, passion and expertise was clearly apparent throughout my colour analysis, which was truly eye opening and I loved all the learning! I left feeling inspired and felt more confident within myself which was one of my aims for the session. I now have a special colour wallet too which I can take with me shopping to ensure my choices remain on-point; super, super happy! It’s 5 stars from me!!! Thanks again Sarah, I will be back for the style analysis too.
