A message from a recent client:  


"I knew having Karen help me with my personal brand colours would be an interesting process, but I hadn't realised that it would also be uplifting AND a lot of fun.  I now have a wonderful palette of colours to dress from that make me feel great just to look at them, and I can now choose clothes with certainty that the colour will look 'right' ."


Wishing you a great month!
