Visiting Esme has probably been the single most effective two hours I have spent in terms of personal development activity – personally or professionally. My attitude to clothes and colour had formerly been functional but lacking in flair. In fact I could say fairly that flair was not on the agenda and black was the by-word. I was genuinely surprised to realise that colour really could work for me – it was simply a question of determining the right shades. What is more, the process of coming to this realisation was actually pleasurable – delivered in a totally non-threatening, supportive environment – Esme really getting where I was coming from and making the whole process enjoyable.

So much for the experience – the impact was immediate. Just adding a few shades and accessories to my clothes collection, even mixing in with my trusty black when wanting to stay safe, had such an impression that friends and colleagues alike were commenting on how things suited me. I felt the difference – my outlook expanded and it was really fun journey of discovery and confidence-boost. Going from really not being that bothered about clothes, colour and, beyond the basics, personal image, I became clear about what worked for me – and now it truly does.

I’d recommend Esme’s service to anyone – and indeed regularly do.

Esmé is a really precious find – an absolute gem! She has an incredible ability to transform a person’s life using her skills in a very personable and empathetic way. She improved my appearance so that I looked not only trendier but also ten years’ younger which greatly boosted my confidence in all aspects of my life including running my own business. Esmé is a must have in the world of commerce for people who want to make the most of themselves.

Esme’s guidance has helped me not only improve my look, but has also given me a greater degree of self confidence. Esme has a lovely style; instantly putting you at ease, but ensuring that you look good too!

After the workshop with Esme I felt totally confident in what I should be wearing to make the best of my appearance. I enjoyed leaving behind old out-dated ‘favourites’ and dressing in fresh colours to suit my look. As a women in business it is so important to dress with style and Esme has certainly given me this!

Sohie Mahir – owner of Alepitis Business Coaching

Esme helped me polish up my image in my professional work which really boosted my confidence. The consultation followed by a personal shopping trip provided me with enjoyable opportunities to try colours and styles which I would never have chosen before, but which really gave me the lift and updating I was looking for. Esme’s sensitive approach makes you feel comfortable and at ease right from the start.

I have known Esme for many years and she advises my customers at the image events that I hold in my shop. Her advice and expertise is always invaluable and she is an inspiration to my customers who value her advice. She is professional and has a very happy and pleasing personality. I would recommend her without hesitation.

I engaged Esme for a session with my staff, as a thank you for hard work and achievements. The session was fun, informative and beneficial, I had some doubting Thomas’ who afterwards confided that they really enjoyed it and have put into practice what they gained from the experience. The workshops work particularly well, as so much more can be learned from seeing how well colours suit their colleagues, and this encourages more participation, and broadening of their outlook.

I had a great experience with Esme, she helped me with my make-up, colours and style. I thoroughly enjoyed my shopping trip and was really impressed by Esme’s preparation and attention. I have a much clearer idea of what suits me and my wardrobe is no longer full of black clothes, I have lovely colours and stylish accessories!

Meryl Jones Senior Manager – Anchor Trust


Esme introduced me to colours and styles that I never would have believed suited me.’

I’ve had so many compliments on my clothes and accessories. I feel as if I’ve come out of my shell and gained in confidence and feel much more relaxed about how I look.

I have much more belief in myself when looking for clothes and accessories since having my colours done.
I had little confidence in my choices and was in a lot of confusion as to what to wear, what went well together both in colour and style.

Above all, having my colours done was fun and opened up a whole new way of looking at myself.

I Also had the wardrobe clearing treatment! Very rewarding and would highly recommend it.

Elizabeth Will

If, like me, you equate clothes shopping to an uninspiring and disappointing traipse around soulless stores, then you need to take Esme on your next trip. She will transform your trudge into a triumph. In half a day she found me a complete summer wardrobe for work – trousers, jackets, tops, shoes, coat, bag, even sunglasses. She instinctively picks out the right things – clothes that look good and feel comfortable – but also discreetly challenges you to try new things too. I highly recommend it – you get the thrill of bags full of goodies, but without any of the effort’ I also bought my mother a colour analysis and a wardrobe weed for her birthday which she loved and needless say is now wearing lots of different colours.
