Over the years our little black book of key contacts has developed as we cultivate and refine our ‘can’t live without’. There is not much over the years that we have not been asked to source, fix or create and now we want to pass on some of our style secrets to you lovely folk. Here we bring you our most useful style tips and favourite tricks – a fashion stylist’s secret weapon if you like.
