23 May: Work It – Career and Styling Event

We’re super excited to be partnering with our friends from The Motherhood and Personal Stylist Tessa from Fig and Frost to bring you what promises to be a really fun, informative and rewarding Career and Styling Event on May 23rd. 

Are you thinking about returning to work after maternity leave or a career break? Are you considering a career change or would you like to find a family-friendly job? Have you been wearing the ‘mum uniform’ for a while now and want to rediscover your love of fashion, but don’t know where to start?

If so, this Career and Styling event is for you! Find a job you’ll love AND curate a stylish wardrobe to match. 

Career Expert Kath will walk you through her tried and tested tips on where to look for a job and how to make your CV stand out. She’ll guide you through the minefield of employment options as well as how to find a family-friendly job.

Personal Stylist Tessa Frost from Fig & Frost will show you what the key essentials every work wardrobe needs, how to dress for your shape and be courageous with colour, plus she’ll show us how the right accessory can transform any outfit. Best of all, she will showcase items that can easily transition from day to evening.

She derives huge pleasure from working with her clients to help them achieve their own unique style. Her attentive manner, listening skills and sensitive nature put people at ease. She has years of experience in advising how best to combine high street and high end, old and new pieces to create classic looks, with an edge.

CAN I BRING MY BABY?

To get the most out of the event it would be great if you could arrange childcare for any little ones, but we are also parents and understand that this is not always possible, so rather than miss out, please know that babies and toddlers can attend with you if you’re unable to get cover. Please note however, the event will be on the first floor and there is no lift, so buggies will need to be carried upstairs.
