In our business we get to meet the most interesting, talented and fun people. Case in point: Chantelle, personal stylist to London's (now) best dressed. Chantelle, using her handle @CZnideric, and I, using handle @Concierge_99, had a chat over Twitter where I got to ask her all sorts of probing questions about her life and work and in return heard so much about the business of Personal Styling in London...and remember: all questions and answers within a 140 character limit!
With nine years of experience, she certainly knows what she's doing - you're going to want to read this and book a session with her immediately afterwards. You too could be among the best dressed in London! :D
