About Pauline & Wardrobe Magic
I have always loved clothes, and the effects of these have on people.
My background is nursing and when working in the UK in 2003, I discovered First Impressions. Training to become an Image Consultant, was the best thing!
I had had my ‘Colours’ done in the 1980s in New Zealand, but quickly realised that the industry moved on since then and was keen to find out more. I started an image consultancy business in London for a short time before returning home to Christchurch in 2007 to establish ‘Wardrobe Magic’.
Even though I had my ‘Colours’, “Body line, Shape & Scale’ done, still felt as though there was something missing! Just didn’t feel quite right in Styles and Shapes, recommended and couldn’t work out why?? Then I discovered Fashion Feng Shui – this was the missing piece to the puzzle! Now everything makes sense, why I like to dress the way I do!! and shopping is now so easy! I trained as Facilitor in 2010, in Auckland, NZ.
I work with individuals and groups to assist in discovering their own Personal Style, and to advise on how to manage appearance so that it is appropriate for every occasion – socially, in a business context, or at home. Every part of our lives matters.
My work ranges from one-on-one, small group consultations, presentations, and practical workshops for all groups of people.
As well as Wardrobe Audit’s, Personal Shopping, I also assist in packing suitcases for various trips away for different occasions.
I continue to be a member of ‘First Impressions’ consultants in the UK, leaders in the image industry, receiving the latest ideas and information.
Was a member of The New Zealand Federation of Image Consultants.
I am passionate about women making the most of themselves to maximise their full potential in every area of their lives. I believe this not only assists women but is also beneficial to their families, their communities and the environment.
I am also the New Zealand coordinator for the Uplift Project, which collect and sends unloved bras to the Pacific Islands. For more information on how you can help visit, www.upliftbras.org
