I hosted 2 successful bespoke “Discover the New You” small group workshops this week. One at a client’s private house, and the other at the boutique hotel-myhotelChelsea.
My new intern assistant, Ellen, who has never been to one of my style and image evenings has written this blog entry from her viewpoint.
“I assisted Ceril Campbell at her popular monthly ‘Discover The New You’ workshop. A small group of women in their 40’s attended. They enjoyed complimentary champagne, whilst they shared their concerns with Ceril about bodyshape and ageing issues and what they would like to achieve from the workshop. Their body shapes ranged from hourglass to straight up and down, from apple to pear shaped, as well as a couple of the women who were self -conscious about their bust size. Ceril explained which styles of clothing would be best for their different shapes, and how to dress to flatter and create an illusion- and importantly how to dress age appropriately, not as the proverbial mutton. Ceril discussed and showed examples of lingerie solutions that can slim and shape. Waist clinchers for that 50’s hourglass figure, pants that smooth the tummy, and stick on bra solutions for those backless Christmas party dresses.
All of these as well as other fantastic shapewear can be found on Ceril’s lingerie website: www.redcarpetundies.com
One of my favourite parts of the workshop was discovering which colours suit which skin tones. As a rule of thumb, I understood that you have yellow or pink undertones, and this determines which shade of colour looks best against your skin.
I finally helped arrange some key wardrobe items and accessories for Ceril’s guests to show her their new honed styling skills. As an observer, I thought the evening was fantastic and such fun! Ceril hosts bespoke workshops from small groups to large events, so not only is it a great bonding session between groups of friends, but also a chance to meet new people, have fun with fashion and really Discover The New You”
