Dress for Success

April 14, 2016

Venue: Chop Bloc

Time: 6pm

At our April event, Thomasin Newton, Essex based Personal Stylist and Image Consultant will be talking to us about Dressing for Success.

Thomasin is an independent image consultant who provides a full range of image services from colour and style analysis through to wardrobe review, personal shopping and outfit consolidation.


Your appearance matters. Your image tells people who you are and how you want to be treated without saying a word. In the world of work this is critically important in getting a new client, keeping clients, getting an internal promotion or growing your own business. A keen sense of style when it comes to your image can lead to greater opportunities and higher levels of success. It is not enough to be able to do your job well - you have to look like you can do the job well too.  The saying "Dress for the job you want not the job you have" is very true for this reason.
