Personal Style Consultation

In the first 9 seconds you will achieve 90% of your impact. This is known as the 9-90 rule. A rule every speaker should be mindful of across every aspect of their business. Your credibility can be determined within those first 9 seconds. It is a rule that absolutely comes into play with what you wear and how you wear what you wear. 55% of your personal impact is achieved through the “visuals” impact of you. What your viewer or audience is seeing. If there is anything visually about you that is distracting, the audience will focus on the distraction and not you and your important messages.

It is essential therefore that every speaker is mindful of these two simple facts, and pays attention to their wardrobe, to ensure that they are wearing the right colours, shape and styles that bring out the best of their natural qualities and there is nothing visually about them that is a potential distraction.

Kay Korsh is a personal stylist and wardrobe consultant. She is founder of Mind Over Fashion.

Who is Kay? In her own words ….

I knew from a very young age I wanted to be a stylist - not a designer - my main strength is in knowing what suits a certain person and which things go well together.

I started my education in Kiev, Ukraine, where I studied hair, make-up and styling, which gave me a great opportunity to understand how the whole look works. I then went on to work in television. I loved giving presenters their Signature Styles and prepping for events, I get a kick of adrenaline every time I put someone in the outfit, they feel confident and comfortable in.

I then went on to work in film, before moving to the UK to do a fashion course. Since then I’ve been doing brand consultancy for Louis Vuitton, Dior, Gieves & Hawkes, Wunderkind among others. And High Fashion editorial for the titles like Harpers Bazaar and L’Officiel. Over the years I’ve worked with celebrities like Lily James, Olga Kurylenko, Ben Whishaw, Will Young and Jenson Button.

Then I realised that something was missing as I’ve always found fashion superficial and I wanted to put my skills into helping women and men find more confidence and spend less time on their looks so they can get on with what they do best. That’s when I started Mind Over Fashion - Wardrobe Editing and Personal Styling (mindoverfashion.com).

Kay has recently started working in the Speaking industry and is offering a 1 hour online consultation to ensure your stage or virtual presence will have people listening to what you have to say instead of looking at what you wear.

During the session:

  • Kay will discuss the objectives of your wardrobe and the current problems you'd like to solve.
  • You will try on 5+ different outfits, and Kay will provide her feedback on them. Her advice might include talking about the essentials in the wardrobe and how to develop your signature style, in line with your lifestyle.
  • You will talk about the colours which suit you.
  • Kay will then summarise any advice given in the session in an email, including the colour palette and the shapes which work for you.
  • You will end up with your very own Pinterest board which will include the inspiration images of your Signature Style, the styles and colours which work for you and the brands you might like to explore. You will be able to keep this board forever and add things to it if you find something you want to add to it. This will help you save time and money when you shop as you will have a clear understanding of what works for you.

Cost for a 60 minute session: £65 plus VAT

Testimonial:

Kay provided me with some enthusiastic and insightful coaching on what i should and should NOT wear. I’ve already made some simple changes to my “look” and because I’ve had a professional stylist’s support am much more confident in my choices. Kay herself is warm, passionate, kind and insightful. Highly recommended! Jack Milner, Comedy Director

I lost nearly 20 kg and so very few of my clothes fitted. Kay was recommended to me and we had an online session over Zoom. It was fun! I now have some clothes that fit. She found loads of lovely things (and many more that didn't work, but they went back). She was very supportive and positive, which made it fun and easy, and I now have clothes that look good and up to date as a pro speaker. I opened the PSA conference this year wearing an amazing blue jacket that she chose for me. I did a finishing keynote for the PMI in Barcelona in the orange version of the same jacket, which looks great for webinars at night. It went really well. Thank you so much Kay! Penny Pullan, Expert in Virtual and Hybrid Leadership 

"I just wanted to say I had a lovely consultation with personal stylist Kay this afternoon as part of our program bonus (thank you Maria & Mary) and it was awesome. After spending the first 5 minutes chatting about fashion (be rude not to - we have worked with some of the same fashion brands) she gave me some fab advice about how to dress for just the top part of my body for virtual work (I always plan my outfits head to toe as a whole look when speaking). She had already checked me out on Instagram and social media to tell me what looked good on me (I love prints..so she told me to wear more) and how I should wear my hair along with some make up tips now we are so close to the camera and audience. If you haven’t booked yet, I definitely recommend. She was also just so lovely and unassuming, and a great addition to team MFL!"  Marie Oakes, Well Being Expert 

"The challenge I’ve been facing for a while is finding the best style of dress and skirt/top combo for my style and body shape ( trying to expand my style beyond jackets and leggings look). Kay is a great listener, loads of creative and specific ideas for me on the spot to really kick start me and motivate me. I will definitely recommend you Kay." Dr. Diana Theodores, Performance Coach

"Kay spent 30 mins on a zoom call with me, to talk about how I might choose and wear clothes that are consistent with my personality. She instantly got me, and what kind of look I was after. Somehow Kay has the ability to get to know your style in a few short minutes, and make suggestions that change your wardrobe enough that you get a new look, but not too much that you feel uncomfortable. She was brilliant. Only problem was that I went straight online and spent a load of money on everything she’d suggested….and guess what - she was right - everything she suggested looks great!" Penny Mallory, Mental Toughness Speaker

Before the session with Kay I was struggling to convey my adventurer lifestyle in my dress code when delivering motivational speaking to corporate clients, and usually resorted to the typical suit attire which doesn't represent what I do or talk about. Kay's expertise introduced new ideas to strike the right balance. I liked the practical element and being able to show existing clothing ideas and get an honest opinion on what worked and what didn't, instead of guessing and things not 'feeling right'. I would definitely recommend Kay's services and only wish I'd discovered them years earlier! Alex Staniforth, Adventurer
