These incredibly talented ladies can offer you a range of styling solutions to meet all your fashion needs which includes wardrobe edits, commercial and editorial projects.

What are you most proud of?
Making Bees & Taylor happen!
Since then, one of the most exciting moments for us was when we dressed our client Clare Balding for the Sports Personality of the Year Awards; Twitter exploded when she walked on stage wearing Alexander McQueen tuxedo trousers, a By Malene Birger blazer and sharp heels.
What can’t you live without?
What is your most memorable fashion purchase?
AOB: Last year I splashed out on an exquisite pair of navy snakeskin Atalanta Weller knee-high boots; yes they were expensive but luckily they are a strong trend for autumn so I will get to really show them off.
EGT: Recently I bought an executively sleek handbag from Alexander Wang that is perfect for my job where I am always on the go; crocodile-effect leather with gold hardware which gives every look a touch of Wang.
What is your favourite shop of all time?
AOB: I love London’s Liberty because of their eclectic collections, iconic prints and the best stationary department around (oh and chocolates!)
EGT: I am an online shopper at heart. I like to browse all the
options; it’s the most fast and effective way to get the best results for my client.
What is your biggest fashion mistake?!
AOB: I suppose it was on-trend at the time (?) but I now look back on gold lame leggings and really wonder; how did I ever think they looked good on me?
EGT: It has to be a neon lycra legging with matching neon socks (back in the 1990s) which my big sister thought was totally unacceptable; fair enough.
Who would play you in the film of your life?
AOB: That is a very tricky question; I am going to go with Julia Roberts because she is the epitome of 1990s Hollywood and has a brilliantly raucous laugh.
EGT: Mine would have to be Cameron Diaz because she is both funny and sexy on-and-off screen, and is the perfect combination of surfer chick and red-carpet star.
