About lizzie edwards
"I have always been interested in fashion and style, but that which is wearable and relevant to the real world. "
I knew I wanted to work with fashion in some way, and upon leaving school I went to college to study fashion & textiles. Soon after, I was 'spotted' by Storm model agency and spent much of the 1990’s working as a fashion model - living in London, Milan and Paris. I had the privilege of working with a variety of talented experts - Photographers including Rankin, Corrine Day, and David Sims for magazines The Face, I-D and Dazed & Confused.
I also worked for fashion magazines such as Elle, Marie Claire, and Glamour and as a fit model with designers including John Galliano, Jasper Conran, Karl Lagerfeld, Chloe, and Issey Miyake.
In 2005, when in my early thirties, I set up my Style and Wardrobe Consultancy. I combined my background in fashion, a love of shopping and effortless style, and an interest in personal development. It loved advising people on what to wear, and it was a huge joy to see how my skills helped people feel to feel happy and more confident.
I first studied Personal Colour & Style in the USA with leaders in the image industry Carla Mathis and Brenda Kinsel. As my business grew and more of my clients were executive women trained in Corporate Image and Executive Presence with Diane Craig of Corporate Class, becoming the only person in the UK certified by her as an Executive Presence trainer. I am one of only a handful of UK style and image consultants who has been certified by the Association of Image Consultants International (AICI, FLC)
I have featured in the Federation of Image Consultants (FIC) magazine, Image Now, The Sunday Times, on CNN, and as a Fashion Expert for NIVEA, having created a series of podcasts for their 'Beauty is…' series.
I really love my work, and have great fun with my clients. In the 12 years since I started my consultancy I have worked with hundreds of women, spoken in front of countless groups and led workshops helping people discover their personal style and upgrade their image.
Now in my mid forties, I personally now work with senior executive women leaders, usually of a similar age. I offer no-nonsense, undiluted expertise and create for them an effortless, wearable wardrobe and advise on dressing for leadership with style and gravitas.
I am currently writing a book on how what you wear can impact your career, and creating a wardrobe that works, due to be published in late 2017. Watch this space!
I'm a supporter and occasional 'dresser' at Smart Works, a UK wide charity that enables women on low incomes get a job and become financially independent. It empowers them to succeed in getting a job and move on with their lives by supplying them with an interview outfit and training.
I live in North London,with my husband a dog, and in my spare time I am a keen allotmenteer, with a particular passion for growing flowers.
I would love to help you with your style and image, so please do get in touch,
