My chat with Penny Smith on Talk Radio at Midday on May 1st on making the most of yourself.

Discussing a recent survey findings in which it seems that the perfect body shape is all about a hip to waist ratio. The smaller the waist the sexier the woman would be,  Unfortunately nowadays our waists our bigger. Our dress a generous 16 and a small waist at 26 inches is an unlikely and mostly unachievable measurement for many women.

So I would say to all women and men that it’s all about 1st impressions and making the most of yourself. Find your best bits, concentrate on accentuating those and minimise and distract from the least favourite parts of you.

I want all my clients to love what they see in the mirror, whatever your size, shape and age. Everyone has the possibility to be your best you. My book Discover the New You may help you. You can dip in and out of it according to your self confidence, style and beauty dilemmas.
Why not start your journey today, in small steps..
I also do 1-2-1’s and group workshops in London and the Isle of Wight. I would love to hear from you

UNDRESSED: A brief history of underwear sponsored by Revlon and Agent Provocateur is on at the V&A from 16th April 2016-12th March 2017

This exhibition was a revelation to me as a fashion stylist who studied fashion design and also owned a lingerie website “Red Carpet Undies”.
The evolving of underwear design over the centuries,
The relationship of underwear and fashion
and
how each decade’s morals defined how women and men wore underwear which was cut and fitted to hide, disguise or enhance the parts of the body that were considered fashionable.

My photos below are a selection of those I found most interesting, fun and include the description of what they are.

and is reminiscent of 18th Century hooped petticoats
