In case you aren’t quite convinced here’s what my clients say

As a Style Coach™ and a member of the International Association of Style Coaches I must respect my clients right to confidentiality, therefore it is not always possible to show client’s photograph’s before or after without the authorisation of my client’s. However some client’s have allowed me to share written testimonials below.

I’ve had the pleasure of helping many amazing people to find their inner and outer confidence and personal style. These testimonials are just a small sample of some of the thank yous I’ve received as well as chocolates and flowers, but I can’t share those.

I look forward to receiving yours one day……

 

I’d highly recommend Nichola for your styling needs, whether that is for a photo shoot or just to feel fab everyday in your own skin. Laura 

Nichola has recently styled me for my business head-shot photo shoot as well as updating my wardrobe with some lovely colourful items for summer. For someone who is daunted by all the choice of clothes out there and how to put an effortless look together, Nichola makes this a really enjoyable experience. I end up feeling totally re-inspired and loving my wardrobe each time we work together. In preparation for my photo shoot, Nichola took great care to understand my brand, assessed my existing wardrobe and went out of her way to source a few extra items to really pull the looks together. I’d highly recommend Nichola for your styling needs, whether that is for a photo shoot or just to feel fab everyday in your own skin.

Step forward Nichola English!! She’s brilliant at what she does.

Anthony International Travel Blogger

I usually associate clothes shopping with anxiety and dread. I’ve always been clueless with what goes with what, how to dress for my body type, what looks good on me etc…

Step forward Nichola English!! She’s brilliant at what she does and really gets to know you and why you’re there, whilst helping you to step outside your comfort zone with confidence.

On top of that, I learnt so much and had a scream of a laugh with this very talented lady.

Nichola and the team really made me feel comfortable in my own skin and the photographs look amazing as a result. I highly recommend Nichola for your styling needs.  kathryn

Nichola recently styled me for a branded photo session for my business and she was amazing. She took the time to understand me and my brand, she really worked on helping me dress in a way that made me comfortable and she went out of her way to make a last minute clothing purchase for me when a national retailer let me down. This helped me avoid so much stress! On the day itself I didn’t need to lift a finger – she took care the clothing, the accessories and the overall look and feel of the whole environment in the shoot. Nichola and the team really made me feel comfortable in my own skin and the photographs look amazing as a result. I highly recommend Nichola for your styling needs.

“I have realised that what I wear, how I show up in the world every day, has such an effect on how I feel, and I can’t thank Nichola enough for all the learning and all the fun”.  Patricia 

The Wardrobe Provocateur

Investing in myself and transforming my wardrobe with Nichola has had an amazing impact on my life.I had become in the habit of wearing dark suits for work and jeans with some “not so carefully chosen” tops for my spare time. A friend recommended Nichola to me and the journey to looking and feeling better began. I had not realised the emotional impact of colour until I saw myself with my “spring” colours. Nichola made the whole experience fun but at the same time it was a total learning experience. Nichola took the time to get to know me, my interests, hopes, dreams and desires and we laughed a lot in the process.

I usually find shopping overwhelming but spent a brilliant afternoon with Nichola when I learned so much as she guided me towards some items I would never have selected previously yet they have now become my favourites because of the way they make me feel. I have never worn yellow, however with Nichola’s guidance I bought a top in exactly the right shade for me and have received so many compliments when I wear it. Someone even made a point of speaking to me on a train to tell me how lovely my top looked. I have realised that what I wear, how I show up in the world every day, has such an effect on how I feel, and I can’t thank Nichola enough for all the learning and all the fun.

  “I feel much more confident now”  Sarah 

I really enjoyed working with Nichola.
She gave my wardrobe a great revamp and showed me how to put together outfits from existing clothes before we added some key pieces. Nichola takes time to prepare before a session and gets to know her client so she knows what will work for their lifestyle. I feel much more confident now 
Thanks so much Nichola x

“I have received so many compliments particularly when I wear my new red dress. I can’t wait to book a follow up consultation.”  Laura

Thank you so much Nichola

For both the wardrobe review and the shopping trip. After the wardrobe review I was filled with a new sense of hope and excitement about my clothes and that feeling stylish and well put together isn’t the dark art I’d always felt it was. On the shopping trip you patiently “nudged” me into items I wouldn’t typically wear and encouraged me to have items (I would have previously discarded) altered to really fit my body shape.

I feel I enjoy my clothes much more, I feel lighter as I know what works well together and I actually have all the right pieces now to pull off a whole outfit. I have received so many compliments particularly when I wear my new red dress. I can’t wait to book a follow up consultation.”

Thank you

“It felt great to let go of the old which I have been hanging onto for years. Bless you my fairy Style mother xx”  Nina 

Hi Nichola,

I wish to thank you for all your help and advice. I had a great time on Friday and it was also great fun.

I love the way you looked at some of my outdated items like my dress which I use to wear in my younger days and the discreet way in which you said nothing at first and then said “interesting” with a look in your eye which showed that those clothes should have been renewed years ago!

I felt so comfortable allowing you to look through my wardrobe and I have taken on board all of your advice.

I can’t believe I have given away 5 big bags of clothes and I still think I ‘m ready to let go of some more things on my next session with the wardrobes sorting!

Here are some on the things I wrote down to email you on Saturday morning the day after my consultation with you.

I am embracing the future with the new me. I was stuck in a time loop and now I am free. Bless you my fairy Style mother ha ha!

-Bless you Love Nina xxxx

“I will highly recommend you to anyone seeking to improve their presence in their life”. Sarah

You excel with the skills of elegance and grace and I will integrate your advice into all of my future purchases.

I will highly recommend you to anyone seeking to improve their presence in their life.

Thank you again.

“Nichola is a fashion/style icon “Wonder Women”  Reb

Having seen the fantastic work Nichola has done I asked her if she could help me prepare for my first Christmas party. She helped me choose an outfit appropriate for the social event and to get ready, even carrying on when she injured her hand on the curling irons. Nichola is a fashion/style icon “Wonder Women”

Thank you so much 🙂

“The investment I made with Nichola has without doubt been the best investment I have made in myself for years. I am now a far more confident lady. I love my wardrobe and feel I now know how to dress, what I suite, where to shop and how to shop wisely”.  SB

For years I had hidden behind the clothes that I wore and I found the whole ‘shopping for me’ experience stressful and my wardrobe overtime had become safe and drab.
But then I met Nichola at a business event and I remember thinking “Wow, I wish I could be like her”.. she was stylish, feminine, elegant and oozed confidence and that stuck in my mind for many months.

I knew I wanted to rediscover a ‘new me’ and I knew Nichola was the right person to do it. up to her ‘How To Develop A Capsule Wardrobe’ programme.

It begun with a complete wardrobe detox and boy was that an eye opener! Nichola instinctively knew how to arrange everything I had crammed into drawers and cupboards into piles labelled ‘charity’, ‘e-bay’, ‘summer’, ‘winter’, ‘smart’ and ‘casual’ and the day ended with everything being neatly re-structured and re-organised. The result was amazing. I knew instantly from my new slimmed down wardrobe where to find the right outfit for the right occasion which meant no more fashion faux pas!

She taught me how to create several different ‘looks’ from just a few key items by mixing different accessories and shoes/handbags, thereby maximising what I had. She advised which items to wear that would enhance my figure, how to up-cycle clothing and which colours schemes where best for me. She also took the time to arrange a make-over session in Newcastle with a top brand of make-up that she knew would be suited to me. The transformation was incredible. And it didn’t stop there!

Nichola then identified what additional clothing or accessories I needed to invest in to make my capsule wardrobe complete. She meticulously researched this and input her recommendations into two beautifully crafted documents called my Style Bible and my Style Book.

The investment I made with Nichola has without doubt been the best investment I have made in myself for years. I am now a far more confident lady. I love my wardrobe and feel I now know how to dress, what I suite, where to shop and how to shop wisely.

Thank you Nichola for giving me and my wardrobe a new lease of life!

“I am a detail person and I did appraise many Style Coaches online, however Nichola’s personal statement really stood out as being very personal and engaging”  Chris 

I first contacted Nichola, as I wanted to do something different and special as a birthday present for my partner. She has a good dress sense, but sometimes lacked the confidence to trust her own eye or try something new. Through Nichola she has developed her own sense of style and the self-assurance to wear clothes for all occasions with confidence.

I am a detail person and I did appraise many Style Coaches online, however Nichola’s personal statement really stood out as being very personal and engaging. After a brief chat on the phone, I was sure this would be the person to help my partner grow in confidence. Nichola’s entire approach is friendly and relaxed and immediately I felt at ease knowing my partner would love the experience.

I couldn’t recommend Nichola highly enough, especially for those guys would like to provide a special experience for their partner to remember for a very long time.

“Nichola seems to have a gift of making you feel at ease…within minutes it felt like I was going to spend the day with a great friend. Nichola is open and full of knowledge, with a great eye for what suits, and what doesn’t”  Steph

I first met Nichola when I was treated to a personal shopping trip by my other half. I didn’t have a clue what to expect, but Nichola seems to have a gift of making you feel at ease….within minutes it felt I was going to spend the day with a great friend. Nichola is open and full of knowledge, with a great eye for what suits, and what doesn’t. We visited so many places with a huge range of price tags and Nichola showed me how to pair things together to make an outfit. It wasn’t about following the latest trends, but more about finding out what’s right for me. I used to hate shopping as I didn’t know what suited me, or how to make an outfit, but I can now shop with confidence and feel positive about trying new things. Nichola is friendly, honest, energetic and inspirational, I couldn’t recommend her enough! Thank you!!!

“Thank you for the support you have given helping me through my transitional stage of stepping out of my comfort zone and stepping into the new me.  You have provided a fantastic service throughout which has been greatly appreciated. I couldn’t have done it without you! You’re the Best!”  Ann  

I just wanted to say a huge big thank you for all you that you’ve done.  In the consultation I immediately felt relaxed and at ease with you’re genuine, friendly, happy, warm approachable manner.  I was quite worried about taking the steps forward as it was a big thing for me to finally start dressing as my true self.  This is something that I have not been able to experience my entire life.  I am now 36 years of age and it started to be more of a significance for me and it was starting to get me down.  Since discovering my dominate fashion persona roughly 3-5 years ago I have struggled to get it right on my own and I have only been able to day dream that one day I would be able to dress that way.  With your help I am now able to start accomplishing this. 

The wardrobe re-vamp was an enjoyable experience where Nichola was able to re-organise my clothes.  I was able to see what was missing, what I had too much of and where I was going wrong, I especially enjoyed putting my outfits together, I could have been there all day.   It was a fun and fantastic experience, I would absolutely recommend everyone to have it done.

Following my wardrobe re-vamp I decided to take the opportunity to have Nichola as my personal shopper in order to attain some of my keys items that was missing from my wardrobe.  The experience made me look at how to shop plus where to shop.  I’ve gained more of an insight including knowledge from Nichola.

Thank you for the support you have given helping me through my transitional stage of stepping out of my comfort zone and stepping into the new me.  You have provided a fantastic service throughout which has been greatly appreciated. I couldn’t have done it without you! You’re the Best!

“Thank you for my style book, it was a mine of information that I will use again and again”  Tracy 

Hi Nichola,

How are you? Hope this email finds you well.Thank you for my style book, it was a mine of information that I will use again and again.I had a great time on our shopping trip, still love everything that I bought, and haven’t returned anything!At the weekend we went out for a meal and some drinks, I wore the orange skirt I bought at Warehouse, along with a navy shell top and some navy heels and a chunky necklace, and also put on the blush duster coat I got from Marks & Spence , it all looked fab together.I have also worn the printed pink s-shirt from Ted Baker with jeans, and have worn the coffee  coloured top from French Connection a lot too, it goes with so many different things.I ordered the white trousers from Marks & Spencer and they look great with heels or sandals. I also bought a denim skirt to go with the off the shoulder top from Warehouse.Oh I also had my haircut like I was telling you, and it looks much better:)

Anyway, thanks again for  a great day.

Have a super weekend.

“You took the time to listen to why I wished to change my look and what I wish to achieve in my every day business and social life”.  Colin

Nichola when I considered using your services I was unsure if you could really be that helpful, how wrong was I.
It only took a matter of minutes to be relaxed in your company and to see how your professionalism shone through. You took the time to listen to why I wished to change my look and what I wish to achieve in my every day business and social life.

After spending a afternoon shopping round for clothes it was great having a professional clothes buy helping me choose the correct clothes to fit my body shape and size, more than that for my image.
Since wearing the clothes that Nichola choose for me and also buying the styles that she has recommend people have certainly noticed. I now have clients telling me I look dapper, professional, smart and my confidence in my look has improved. Probably the best thing that has happened since, is the way business peoples attitude towards me has changed and I certainly notice that I have become busier in business.

I would highly recommend using the wonderful Nichola English’s services to improve how you dress and how people react to you.

“I felt like I had a whole new wardrobe, a new found confidence and a full appreciation of clothing and how it can make you feel.Thank you Nichola, you’re a star!”  Claire 

“I had the pleasure of having Nichola as my onsite stylist for my business headshot photoshoot earlier this year. 

The thought of having someone rummaging through my wardrobe wasn’t something I was confident about but I had absolutely nothing to worry about. Nichola spent the time to go through my whole wardrobe showing me how to wear items, how to put some outfits together and by the end of the initial meeting I felt like I had a whole new wardrobe, a new found confidence and a full appreciation of clothing and how it can make you feel. On the photoshoot day, Nichola made me feel at ease making sure both myself and the clothes looked their best. Her eye for detail, what suits you and finding gems is amazing. I’ve since gone away and kept Nichola’s tips in mind when shopping and enjoy it for once!
Thank you Nichola, you’re a star!
