Her down to earth nature combined with her knowledge for personal styling allows her to achieve the best results for her clients.
"When working with clients I believe in establishing rapport with them, as this helps to understand their vision and hence transform into their style. On a daily basis I am constantly creating looks for clients who simply wish to rediscover their style, and my key advice to my clients is teaching them on the right fit and appropriate style for their body shape."
Lauren has the innate ability to transform her clients regardless of their age, lifestyle, size and shape and she believes that everyone deserves to look and feel amazing and confident without breaking their budget. She attains this by establishing the right fit and appropriate style suitable for different body shapes and educating her clients on what suits them best, including fabric texture, cuts and colours.
"There is nothing more rewarding than helping people maximise their best features to help them feel great about themselves. Watching this transformation and the gratification expressed on their face is priceless.”
