I was excited to find out that I’d won the competition sponsored by Comfort Brights & Tesco Magazine but that excitement soon turned to anxiety as I realised it meant someone would be rifling through my wardrobe and seeing all the mistakes that I’d made. All my worries faded as soon as I met Kate Nightingale. She immediately put me at ease and assured me that although she would advise me about what suited me, we would make decisions about what to get rid of together. Her kind and considered approach made the whole experience a pleasure and left me feeling more positive about myself than I have in a long time. Thank you Kate.

May I say that the service you provided was, professional, personal and perfect. My wife, as am I, are very happy with the outcome. Thank you for your time and great amount of effort.
C.M., Golin Harris PR
Kate was the spokesperson for a PR campaign I led for a fabric conditioner brand. She helped create interest around a product that is considered quite dry, by providing expert advice on colour psychology. Kate is professional, efficient and flexible and was fully committed to the campaign from start to finish. With Kate’s help, we achieved the desired results for the campaign and I’d certainly work with her again if the right opportunity arose.

I found the colour consultation with Kate very useful. Early in the consultation Kate said that I already had a good idea of what colours suit me – so it was good to get confirmation that I was on the right track already. Kate wanted me to get the maximum benefit from my session so she asked me a few questions and we focused on other areas of my clothing. She was able to suggest ideas to me that fitted with my Bohemian style. The colour consultation gave me the incentive to look at my wardrobe and accessories and wear items of my own wardrobe in a more creative way. I am now dressing much better with items I already owned and feel more confident and sexier as a result and feel that changing the way I dress to more express my personality has created an internal change for the better. I can wholeheartedly say that it was worth every penny! Thank you Kate.
Mr T.C., Accountant, London
I came to Kate because I had trouble attracting nice girls and my mate told me she can help. I must admit I thought he was crazy but I didn’t have anything to lose so I went for it.
I had a great time with Kate and she even gave me a few insights into women’s psyche. The next evening I went to pub with my mates and I couldn’t believe my luck! Girls were coming to me themselves. I didn’t even have to move. Amazing!
Mr C.D., Software Engineer, London
I don’t normally feel the need to look good as I mostly work from home. However, when I’m going to meet a new client, I feel that what I wear every day is not suitable. That was my only reason for using Kate’s services. I was a bit reluctant at first, as I didn’t want some woman going through my wardrobe, but Kate was very professional and efficient.
I actually enjoyed the whole experience and we really didn’t spend too much time in the shops, which I was extremely grateful for.
I’ve noticed that since the consultation the time that clients need to decide if they want to use my services has shortened and I don’t have to discount the price as much as I had before. Even though I didn’t believe that there could be some measurable advantages to dressing better, I must say I was completely wrong.
Thank you Kate for your help. I would not hesitate to recommend you to all my mates.
Mrs V.D., Fragrance Specialist,Kent
Kate has an unusual approach to style and fashion. In a few minutes she is able to understand you as a person and translate this into the way you dress. Her guidelines have helped me dress more faithfully to my personality, in a stylish way. Very impressive. (3 May 2011)
Mrs K.P., Professor of Psychology, Hertfordshire
Kate has a refreshing approach to style advice by taking a psychological approach. I’m thrilled that there’s someone out there who recognises that style is a reflection of who we are on the inside and not all about the superficial shell. By getting to a person’s ‘core’ the advice Kate can offer will go much further than any traditional style advisor. (12 May 2011)
Mrs H.M., NLP Specialist, London
Kate Nightingale puts her clients at ease and works with them to achieve the best outcome for the situation they require. She attaches a creative approach to her field which provides the client with a service like no other. Thoroughly enjoyed working together!!
Mrs J.M., Branding Specialist, London
Kate is always elegantly, but seemingly effortlessly, well dressed in carefully chosen key pieces.
I recommended her to a friend who says she is now always complimented on her outfits which are from Kate’s reworking of her existing wardrobe.
She loves clothes (rather than fashion) and works not only with your body shape and projecting your professionalism but on another level where she aims to present the real you (in a more polished form), so your inner and outer brands are congruent.
Anna Clarissa Publico-Ong, Manager, Picodeliq Enterprises Limited
Kate is excellent to work with. She is very hardworking and professional. She helps women dress for success at the same time in being themselves and elegant. I enjoyed working with Kate and recommend her services to women and even men. If you want a bit of a change from your normal wardrobe or want to dress for success do contact her.

Kate is dynamic, driven and has a very strong work ethic. She is stylish, has an amazing wardrobe of clothes and is fun to be around. Having photographed Kate, this gave me an insight into the type of style consultant she would be and I would happily recommend her.
Her combination of understanding women with her psychology background combined with her taste in clothing would help any woman look and feel more confident in themselves. I look forward to working with Kate again.
Ms DT, Health Practitioner – London
I had let everything go for a long time and needed to smarten up my image and my wardrobe. Kate researched the clothes that would look good on me and would promote a more sophisticated professional image. She took me shopping and was a very objective pair of eyes, and we managed to revamp my wardrobe and image well within budget.
I thought I would feel embarrassed but was really thrilled with the whole experience.
People have commented on how good I look – thanks Kate!
Philippa Cowley-Thwaites, Straight talking communications
As a freelance communications consultant working across the sectors, I was finding it really hard to get my business style right. One day I’ll be working in a charity, where the dress code is fairly laid-back, the next I’ll be meeting with lawyers who have a very formal approach to dressing for business.
Kate really helped me see my way through this dilemma and gave me the confidence to dress the way I am, rather than what I think I should be. It’s a hard balance to strike, looking the part but looking yourself as well, and Kate’s understanding of the psychology of business and the importance of keeping your own identity made it much easier to choose clothes that really suit me and enhance my authority as a business woman.
I’m now much more confident when I go into organisations that I have the gravitas I need without losing sight of the real person underneath. That makes me feel good when I’m doing business and makes my clients warm to me as a person as well as someone who can add value to their organisation.
A big thank you to Kate – she gave me ideas I would never have thought of myself and boosted my business at a difficult time. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to others facing a similar challenge.
