Upstyle Club

Do you want to dress beautifully without harming the planet and making wasteful fast fashion choices?

I help people to express their stories through fashion, too. 

As a sustainable personal stylist, I love encouraging people to look at their clothes in a new way. 

In 2019, after six years working under my brand Style Me Red, I decided to relaunch as Upstyle Club. (A new website is coming soon, but in the meantime, you can follow me for tips me on Instagram.)

 

I’ve always loved second-hand clothes and run wardrobe workshops, but for years I’d been guilty of mindlessly buying fast fashion, and helping my clients to do the same.

I didn’t want to do that any more. You can find out a bit more, here, in this piece I wrote for Wales Online.

As a sustainable fashion stylist, I work with clients to Upstyle what’s already in their wardrobes, and to swap their fast fashion fixes for responsible choices, via pre-loved or sustainable brands.

I’m a huge fan of second-hand and vintage clothing and am on a bit of a mission to change people’s minds about charity shops as a source of luxe styling.

On a session with me, you’ll learn how to put together sleek, stylish looks, using your own items at home. And if you have any gaps – I’ll help you to fill them in a way that’s more compassionate to the environment and to the people who make our clothes.

Shopping is JUST as much fun without fast fashion – in fact, it’s even better, and often less expensive.

You can even book me to go second-hand shopping and I’ll teach you how I’ve developed a magpie eye for finding the best pieces.

If you have a big event coming up, have loads of clothes but no outfits, or you just want an Upstyle, get in touch.

I’ve created red carpet looks for BBC news presenter Sian Lloyd, West End performer and The World’s End star Sophie Evans, and classical crossover singer Camilla Kerslake, and presented fashion events and videos for clients including St David’s shopping centre, Breast Cancer Care and Careers Wales.

My priority is to help people look and feel great and I won’t say you can’t wear your favourite colour – I think dressing up should be fun.

Our sessions can be flexible to your needs, timescale and budget. Whether that’s a full day, a two-hour wardrobe edit or 45 minutes second-hand or ethical shopping on your lunch break.

I’m available for shopping sessions, wardrobe workshops at your home, and styling parties.

My standard styling rates are £150 for 2 hours; £200 for 3 hours; or £300 for a full day (five hours) – but I can also tailor packages to work around your budget and needs.

You can see what some of my clients have said about how I’ve helped them, here.
