Join fashion insider and shopping fanatic Alexandra Fullerton as she reveals the tips and tricks that industry stalwarts swear by in putting their outfits together. Get to know the classic fashion icons – from Jane Birkin to Iris Apfel, Grace Jones to Audrey Hepburn – before streamlining your own style, following Alex’s core capsule wardrobe which can be edited to suit individual taste.
Based on Alexandra’s best-selling debut book, How to Dress, she will share the failsafe formulas involved in always looking your best, highlighting essential items for every wardrobe, revealing how to develop signature style, advising on shopping strategies and when to invest in designer pieces (and when to save on a bargain)!
Alexandra will also discuss her professional highlights to date and how she forged her career in fashion styling spanning nearly 20 years. She has become one of the most sought after stylists working with clients such as Stella McCartney and Marks & Spencer and photographers David Bailey, Mary McCartney, Rankin and Ellen von Unwerth.
Alexandra Fullerton has worked on an array of British publications, over the last eighteen years, including full-time roles at Glamour, Eve and Happy and contributions to Grazia, and the Telegraph Magazine – along with a seven-year stint as fashion director of Stylist. Currently working freelance as a stylist, writer and now author, Alex has recently contributed to Glamour UK, Stella and V magazines and international editions of Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue.
