About Us'FrockChicks' offer professional styling at an affordable price with a refreshingly realistic approach. Based in London and Surrey but will travel further afield to visit and shop with clients.
Hilary, FrockChicks principal trained stylist, has navigated her own dress style through work, pregnancy, school runs, weight gain, weight loss, living on a shoestring.....yet she still loves clothes and has a natural instinct for style that works.
Hilary graduated in Nutrition at King's College, London University and has since gained a wealth of experience in customer service, fashion, retail, teaching and training. She is a 'vicar's wife' (but definitely not what you'd expect for one of those!). She has 2 young boys, Silas and Toby, and so really enjoys having an outlet for her feminine side...
She says: "I'm petite and pear-shaped and have often wondered why the phrase "It's all gone 'pear-shaped' has such negative connotations?! I've had to learn to dress for my shape and I love helping others discover their unique features and how to make the best of them too. I really enjoy the creativity of fashion and style, but nothing gives me more pleasure than finding a treasure at a Vintage sale or Charity Shop. Since I was a teenager, friends and family have asked me to help with buying outfits, sorting out their wardrobes and giving them colour and style tips. I'm renowned for my vast accessory colection and clothes in every colour of the rainbow (well at least in the colours that suit me!). Having set up FrockChicks 2 years ago, it has gone from strength to strength and it's always a joy meeting new people, understanding them and their lifestyle and helping them to Dress without Stress, whatever their budget, shape or size!
What our clients say...I ventured into fashion's world of colours, lengths and even layers with FrockChicks, that confidence had prevented me from considering while shopping on my own. I never expected the day and the company to be such a delight!
FrockChicks make shopping fun and easy. They’re brilliant at getting me to try something different. I’ve had so many compliments on my new clothes.
Hilary has a fantastic eye for colour and for putting clothes together into an outift that you can feel comfortable in and looks great!
FrockChicks took me to High Street shops that I wouldn't usually have considered. It was a relief to find out that financial restrictions wouldn’t prevent me from looking and feeling good.
