Brand You – a workshop on making impressions, connections and change

Brand You

You, and everything about you speaks to the people you meet. What does it really say?

This new workshop explores you, your own ‘brand’ and how it can inspire both confidence and the connections that matter most.

Delivered by three women who have made connecting their business, you’ll leave with a fresh, deeper understanding of what you can offer to the people you want to connect to, and the confidence to make that happen. Marina Larios, Director of Inova, talks the power of networking; Auriel Majumdar, Gestalt consultant coach discusses ways to tell your own story; and Liz Clothier, stylist, mentor and coach talks about self-presentation.

This exclusive invite offers you a place on our pilot workshop for just £75 / £50 concessions in return for your objective critique so we can shape the future of the event. We’d love you to come along, to share and discover Brand You!

24 November, 5-8pm – Leopold Hotel, Leopold Square, Sheffield

Light refreshments will be provided. To register your place, click here or call 0114 279 9091.

How to look good clothed

A rectangle, an apple, a pear and an hourglass may seem an odd collection of things, but they are not part of an examination question, nor are they clues in a murder mystery puzzle. They are in fact categorisations of female body shapes. These four shapes provide the framework behind Liz Clothier’s presentation How to Look Good Clothed delivered to students and staff at Queen Margaret’s on the evening of Thursday 17th of March.

From making her own clothes at the age of thirteen on her grandmothers Singer sewing machine Liz Clothier has always loved clothes. After a brief diversion during a Zoology Degree Liz returned to fashion and started working for Topshop. After years working in the fashion industry Liz has rebranded herself and is using her passion for fashion to help women and men build wardrobes they love.

The theme of the evening was dressing appropriately not only for the occasion but for your body shape (be it rectangle, apple, pear or hourglass), take pride in your appearance, for, quite dauntingly it is only a matter of 2 or 3 seconds in which people in business make a judgement about an individual based entirely on how they look. Liz talked about how wearing the right clothes can instil confidence: get the outfit right and it is one concern that can be dismissed. This advice was wrapped up with tips for the season ahead (1970s and ballet), advice on accessorising and examples of this season’s must haves: flares, wedges, white jackets, anything in block colour and clothes and accessories with fringing.

So are you a rectangle, an apple, a pear or an hourglass? Whatever your shape Liz’s message is to embrace your individuality, experiment with clothes, stick to the rules and dress with confidence. For more information or for styling advice visit www.lizclothier.com

Dress right now with Liz Clothier

Liz Clothier is delighted to announce the launch of a new personal and corporate styling service (www.lizclothier.com), designed to help individuals and organisations improve the way they dress.

Liz’s experience in the fashion industry, coupled with her background in business, gives her a clear understanding of how to dress right now. Whether it’s a shopping trip with an individual client or the development of a company dress code, Liz helps people to build a wardrobe that works.

Speaking recently at the Leeds launch of the new service, Liz said “My strong belief is that the right dress allows people to express themselves from the inside out and can transform how they feel and perform. In business the right dress can make the difference between losing and winning. Impressions and judgements are often made in seconds; my objective is to ensure people make those first few critical seconds count.”

Liz Clothier’s personal styling service includes consultations, accompanied shopping trips, wardrobe updates, special event shopping and long-term wardrobe maintenance. The service is particularly relevant to organisations where the importance of dress in winning business is overlooked, people do not dress appropriately, the dress code just does not work or staff look second best compared to the competition.

Results of this new approach have been impressive. Amongst those seeking to achieve a specific employment objective Liz has so far enjoyed a 100% success rate. With organisations she has been equally impressive. Carol Cameron, Deputy Head of Queen Margaret’s School in York recently said of Liz’s work “I would not hesitate to recommend Liz to any organisation serious about updating, improving or refining their image.”

The bespoke service, aimed at men and women and organisations of all shapes and sizes, is available from today in Yorkshire and London.
