It’s been a busy few months at the Style Studio but as I now have a short pause before the Autumn/Winter season kicks off I thought I’d put together a post with answers to a few of my most commonly asked questions…

Who are you styling services for?

I work with women of all ages, shapes, sizes and budgets.

Where are you based?

My studio is located in a little village called Hawksworth around 30 minutes outside of Leeds. I see clients throughout West Yorkshire (but have had clients travel from all over the country to see me). For wardrobe audits I travel up to 30 minutes from my studio as part of the package cost and charge a small travel fee for travel further than this. Personal shops usually take place in Leeds.

Do you have any qualifications?

Yes! I trained in London in 2011 in both colour analysis and personal style (body shapes/style personality) and I ensure my skills and knowledge are bang up-to-date with regular top-up courses. I love everything to do with fashion and style so take every opportunity I can to read and learn more.

Where should I start?

My most popular service is the Signature Style Session but some people prefer to start with a Wardrobe Audit. If you’re not sure what’s best for you we can arrange a no-obligation phone call to discuss your goals when working with a stylist (just drop a note to anna@annamewes.com).

Do I need a big shopping budget to work with you?

Not necessarily. The knowledge I share with you during a Signature Style Session will last you a lifetime (and save you from making expensive shopping mistakes!) My advice to new clients with smaller budgets is always to take things slowly, build your wardrobe mindfully and enjoy the process. You don’t have to go on a huge shopping spree for a whole new wardrobe straight away; you can take your time and allocate whatever budget you have carefully – once you have the knowledge on how to dress and look and feel your best, it’s with you forever.

I’m on a weight loss journey, should I wait until I reach my goal before I book in?

No! Why wait to look and feel your best? My advice will help you navigate your weight loss journey in style and will include tips on how to dress when you reach your goal.

You talk about ‘style as self care’ – what does that mean?

For me, taking time and care over our personal style gives us the same boost as eating well, moving our bodies and indulging in a little mani/pedi or spa day. Clothes won’t fix all your problems but knowing which colours to choose and how to dress to flatter your shape will give you a self confidence boost like no other – it’s always about more than the clothes.

Do you do gift vouchers?

I do! You can either select a service you think the recipient would like or gift a monetary amount. I provide a personalised, gift wrapped voucher for you to present to your loved one.

Do you do joint sessions or groups?

My colour consultation works particularly well as a joint experience or part of a group – I can accommodate up to four people at the studio (fizz and nibbles essential and provided for you all of course!)

Have a question that I haven’t answered above? Drop me a note to anna@annamewes.com or DM over on my Instagram here.
