When I was hired to present the Bamboo Body AW2020 collection, they asked me if I could cover as many questions as their clients sent through. Questions like “would this suit my colours?”, “is there UV protection in this fabric?”, “is this skirt going to suit my body shape?”.
As you know, I am a fiercely independent stylist. I like to give recommendations based on what perhaps would suit you without any financial gain on my part. I have always been this way.
Knowing that the majority of my client base loves to travel, finds comfortable fabrics important and likes to mix and match, I thought I would share the videos with you.
The models you will see are my Style Angel clients some I have worked with for years, Sue, Judy and Carla and my friend Victoria. They had never done anything like this video shoot before so I am so proud. They faced their fears and had some fun. The camera often was right in their faces, showing a neckline or earring so you can just imagine how they would have felt.
Sue is one of my closest clients who I love working with. She is a rectangle body shape and a Soft Summer in colours. She is close to 60 and is the happiest retiree I know. Super active with yoga, physie, pilates and golf. She loves to travel and of course look after her new grand daughter Lani.
We share a love for tassels and all things accessories. We go crazy at Lovisa and have both built a great collection of colours we can mix and match. You can see in this video how she has put together this AW2020 Ginger look.
Victoria is a friend who I have known for quite a while since I lived in Sydney’s East. In fact we moved to the Sutherland Shire around the same time and loving it here. She is a busy mum of two, a primary school teacher and loves to create designs for her business Ella Bella Bows
Her colour season with this rust hair colour is warm spring and she is a pear body shape. Have a look how she is wearing the AW2020 Ginger striped skirt with the most comfortable twin set.
I love Judy! You might have see her in some of the 2016 photo shoot images. Initially, 12 years ago Judy came to a workshop and then booked in for a colour session. Soft autumn her colours are, with beautiful chocolate brown colouring. Judy has just retired and moved to the Southern Highhlands where she loves gardening and being active in her community all while looking after her 3 grand kids almost every day. She is a busy lady. I call her Lady Judy as her cheek bones are to die for. Her shape is Inverted Triangle and in this video, in particular, I touch on how to wear stripes when you have a wider upper body.
Carla is like a beautiful breathe of fresh air. I styled her last year when she supported her best friend who was given a gift voucher. This glorious tall woman is super busy with a full time job, and three kids including twin boys. She is a deep autumn and a pear shape, and again, I think you will like the tips I give here about wearing stripes in a wider part of your body. I will give you a hint, not all stripes are the same! Enjoy Carla’s energy in this great outfit.
There are four more Bamboo Body AW2020 colours to come so I will keep you posted.
