Is this a Fairy Story ?
You invite someone – attractive, intelligent and personable – to your home to look through your wardrobe.
She looks at the packed accumulation of garments, and with her professional diplomacy, and many hearty laughs together, we agree to discard sentimental, outdated, and even some unsuitable recent purchases.
To my surprise, some definite ‘outs’ she even encourages me to keep, after suggesting a few alterations.
Two hours later the floor is covered with clothes for “Vinnies”, and my robe is sporting a few ( perhaps I exaggerate ) – maybe half-a-dozen- hangers with clothes on them. And I am totally exhausted and overwhelmed from doing very little at all.
Then comes the best bit – shopping with my own “personal shopper” for a few hours. No running out of the change room for other sizes or styles. Colours are recommended, and garments co-ordinated. All I, the “clothes –hating- shopper”, have to do is try things on.
But wait – there is still a better bit – handbags and shoes! Never believed decision making could be so easy and quick.
That was Summer.
When Winter arrived, I had very few warm clothes to wear, so another shop was arranged, this one a little more extensive.
Now I have a wardrobe of clothes (about 25% of what I used to own) that I feel comfortable wearing, and can coordinate in so many ways. I even have choices, and no un-wearable outfits.
And not only clothes! Recently, I was prescribed glasses, which meant sunnies too, and yes, my personal shopper was there to advise.
Now, do you think this a fairy story?
If you do, think again, because it means you have not met Imogen Lamport. From the point of view of a now, non-working Grandmother, I can thoroughly recommend her services.
My consultation with Bespoke Image has opened up a whole new world for me. It’s amazing how the small details make such a big difference. I work in fashion, and always need to look fashionable, but the last thing I want is to look like a “Fashion Victim” !
Have you ever known something you wore was “not quite right” but couldn’t put your finger on the reason why? Imogen Lamport gave me so much to think about and made me realise that I was always on the right track but a few small changes will ensure that I always look stylish and up to the minute because I will always be wearing colours and styles that work for my lifestyle, my personality and my body shape.
I feel confident now that I wont be wasting money on things that don’t suit me and end up sitting in the wardrobe untouched.
I never realised there was such a science to dressing and how important choices are – everything from jewellery to the shape of your shoe – it was fascinating to learn. I realised that I’ve constantly relied on black suits or dark colours as a safe choice when these colours were working against me. The consultation has opened up a new realm of possibilities for me and I now shop with greater confidence. I have been amazed by the number of comments that I’ve received along the lines of ‘how well I’m looking’, now that I’ve moved away from old habits. A consultation with Bespoke Image is an investment in yourself and has the potential to change your life. I highly recommend it.
You’ll be pleased to know I’ve had my first shopping ventures since our session and it has been very successful. Finally, I feel confident and capable in what to try on…..so far I’ve made a couple of purchases and everything goes with everything else! It’s amazing.

I know I made a wise investment in myself when I spent a day with Imogen Lamport of Bespoke Image. Not only am I now more confident when putting together my outfits, but I’m also saving a fortune by sticking to my best colours & styles. Having ongoing support and advice from Bespoke will just keep making this easier!

After having my colours determined by Imogen, I found myself looking at clothes shopping in a completely new light. Now I take my swatches everywhere with me – just in case, they prove very useful, and save me a fortune.
The first time I went on a Personal Shopping trip with Imogen after my colours had been determined, I tried a green top on. To my amazement, the two shop assistants were so impressed at how well it suited me, they started pulling clothes off racks and asking Imogen which colours suited them.

Thank you so much for our fantastic time spent with you. We both had so much fun, and I learnt so much more than I thought I would. I have to say, that when I came home I went through my wardrobe and got rid of most of it because there was so much black in it and so many wrong length skirts (which is probably why I hadn’t worn a skirt for over a year).
Thanks too for coming shopping with us, it was great to have you there. Now I get really annoyed when shop assistant say something fits well when clearly it doesn’t, or they say “this pant is really flattering for big hips”…and it has huge pockets on the side with horizontal stripes!! He he…now I am on to them.!!
I have honestly got to say, that the investment I made in coming to see you has already paid off. My husband was not only pleased that some of it was tax deductible, but he is commenting every day on how good I look and I feel so much more confident in myself and also when I am shopping.

Thanks once again for the consultation. I learnt so much about myself, especially physically . I can’t wait to do my wardrobe audit!
Thank you so much for the colour consultation, it was really helpful with lots of great tips, and has given me the confidence to buy and wear clothes that actually suit me.

Thank you for the day we had in November, I thoroughly enjoyed it and opened up my eyes to a new world of how colour and style can impact a person.
The “What Not To Wear” series on TV whetted my appetite for my own personal image consultant. Imogen Lamport’s web page advertising her services and products made it easy for me to contact her and arrange a consultation on a recent trip to Melbourne. Imogen visited me for a colour assessment and makeup demonstration. She made up half my face and had me do the other half. This was a great idea as it gave me the confidence to use more makeup than I normally would and in colours that suited my skin tone. She also suggested changing my hair colour as the highlights I’d just paid a fortune for did not suit my colouring. During our shopping trip Imogen chose styles and colours I’d never worn before. The comments I’ve since received on how well I look has made me realise I’d rarely received any when wearing my usual black business outfits. My first job when returning home was to evaluate my wardrobe, and I now find I can get by on a lot less clothes because everything mixes and matches. Imogen, you offer a wonderful service in that you know just “what not to wear”. Thank you for my makeover, and giving me the confidence to step out of my comfort zone in choosing new clothing. I look forward to anothr shopping trip when next in in Melbourne.

Thanks so much for presenting at our Mums group. I have been collating feedback forms lately and the response to your presentation was overwhelmingly excited and positive. Mums have commented on how much fun the presentation was, but also on how much more fun shopping is since having their colours done and how much more confident they feel when shopping. You have made a big difference to the lives of women who don’t spend a lot of time or energy on themselves. Thank-you again!

I loved the matter-of-fact really useful information that was presented. It makes so much sense but why didn’t I ever know this before!
I loved your speech. It was very positive and full of positive self-image. Thanks
