Styling women for over 15 years I know the importance of not only having the right cuts to suit women’s body shapes and the styles that will remain in vogue for years, but also the importance of mixing and matching what you have in your wardrobe.
Who has time to stand in their wardrobe procrastinating over an outfit
and whether things match or not?
Our first collection for AW19 consists of 32 items. Everything in this collection can be worn together, making styling easy. We did the maths and worked out that if you only owned the 32 pieces from our collection, you would have well over 1,000 different ways to wear them, which doesn’t include accessorising or layering, which will add numerous additions to the 1,000 ways. As a bonus, most items from our AW19 collection can be worn casual, to work or throw on some heels and jewellery for evening, creating even more varieties for your lifestyle.
Our intention with this first collection is to:
· Educate women on how to own fewer items but feel like you have more styles to wear.
· Communicate the importance of buying quality over quantity.
· Show how to avoid spending a significant amount of money on fast fashion, which often leaves you feeling like you still have nothing to wear and is destroying the planet with landfill.
· Show that purchasing investment pieces in quality fabrics will give you clothes that you can wear for years to come.

Here is the maths to show you how to wear the 32 items from our AW19 collection over 1,000 ways.
4 x camisoles, worn with 9 x bottoms = 36 styles
4 x camisoles, worn with 9 x bottoms, plus 2 blazers = 72 styles
6 x bamboo tops, worn with 9 x bottoms = 54 styles
6 x bamboo tops, worn with 9 x bottoms, plus 2 blazers = 108 styles
2 x silk tops, worn with 9 x bottoms = 18 styles
2 x silk tops, worn with 9 x bottoms, plus 2 blazers = 36 styles
2 x shirts, worn with 9 bottoms = 19 styles
2 x shirts, worn with 9 bottoms, plus 2 blazers = 36 styles
14 tops, worn with 9 pants, plus 7 coats = 882 styles
