I very much enjoy giving talks and demonstrations to businesses, clubs and societies.  I have been engaged to provide lectures to Solent University students as part of their Writing Fashion and Culture degree course and also to advise students at Southampton City College on dressing for business for business.  I have also given talks and demonstrations as part of Winchester Fashion Week (2016 & 2017). I aim to make my talks interactive, enjoyable and informative and  can cover topics such as:

  • Wardrobe full of clothes and nothing to wear?
  • Style tips and tricks
  • Putting colour into your life
  • Dressing for business
  • Personal branding
  • Capsule holiday wardrobe

I am happy to tailor a talk or training session to your specific requirements.

“Thank you Nicola for a wonderful presentation at our Ladies Evening in aid of Comic Relief.  Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and was able to gain a lot of relevant information about colour, style and fashion.  We are so grateful to you for giving up your time to give a comprehensive and professional insight into how we can all make the most of ourselves”  Nicky Williams, Marketing Manager, Bodysound Health and Fitness.

Thank you so much for such a great evening… The feedback I have received has been so positive and everyone was stunned and amazed with your suitcase! It just goes to show how important a co-ordinated wardrobe is.  I have to say, you made it seem so easy and I suppose, if you remember the rules, it is!”  Louise Watson, President, The Disparate Housewives.
 What a great experience for our students who are getting work-ready for customer facing roles. Nicola delivered an excellent session on Dressing to Impress at Interviews… The students were engaged for the whole two hours and full of fun and laughter after the session. I have even seen some moving out of their comfort zones of clothing to experiment with their recommended colours. Thank you so much, Nicola! Angela Parkes,  Course Tutor, City College Southampton
