A woman who loves colour is looking to share her passion and knowledge with people who want to enjoy their own wardrobe more or help others do so.
Lorna Wiltshire can offer advice if you are looking for help with fashion, shopping and finding your personal style.
She has been doing this for several years, but after numerous requests from clients, she is now branching out by offering a three-day course entitled Personal Styling: A Creative Career.
The course will cover key elements of personal styling, including colour, body shape and personality.
The course is open to anyone over-16, but could really benefit someone looking to go into retail or who already works in retail, looking to become a personal stylist or someone who would like an insight into the industry.
It could also apply to someone interested in art or costume design, or just looking for a career change.
Personal styling is looking at what really excites that person and what pushes their buttonsLorna Wiltshire
Lorna said: “Personal styling is looking at what really excites that person and what pushes their buttons.
“Every season lots of new trends come out but it doesn’t always actually work for them.”
Lorna, who has lived in Rushden for three-and-a-half years, said the course will help people ‘enjoy their wardrobe more’ as well as give a better understanding of fashion and styling which can be passed onto clients, customers or just family and friends.
She believes it could also help when applying for jobs in the industry.
Lorna is holding the three-day course at Barton Hall in Kettering from September 28 to 30.
She said: “I have had people asking me for this for a long time.
“The long-term plan is to be doing this more regularly, three or four times a year.
“The other idea I am going to be doing is a one-day colour course for those who just want colour.”
She feels this is a natural progression from her personal shopping and styling, and is looking forward to sharing her knowledge on the course.
Lorna said: “It completely changes all your habits.”
