The Details:

"What you are wearing and how good you feel in your skin has a direct impact on how you show up professionally"

There is a scientific fact that says: people will judge your appearance within five seconds after you make the first impression and the first of what they sense about you is your face and the fashion choice you made. The attitude and the confidence are directly linked with how good you feel and often it completes the first impression you give to those you meet.

A great challenge we all face every morning is 'what to wear?'. We might feel we need something new to impress or feel good but sometimes the hidden gems are right there amongst the wardrobe maze. Or it might just take a couple of extra key pieces to create an entirely new look for the season.

Andrea Apitz who's been styling women for over 40 years is here to show us how to maximise our existing wardrobe, what essentials we can purchase if we need to maximise existing items and even more importantly, how to feel great in the clothes we wear every day.


This workshop will empower you to grow confidence in how you feel in what you wear every day, to create a great first impression and keep a balanced budget at the same time.

Learn tips and tricks to maximise your existing wardrobe to create a variety of 'go-to' style ranges that suit your body type and personality
