Fiona Huntingford began her fashion career in 1998 when she was 19, taking a summer job at an award winning designer store - where she realised she'd found her calling! After graduating from university she worked as a fashion buyer for the same designer store and then as wholesale manager for a Danish brand. In 2006 she started her own business, Style Struck, which allowed her to combine her skills and extensive knowledge of the fashion industry to help her clients with their shopping dilemmas - giving them new-found confidence and enabling them to see their existing wardrobes more clearly and feel invigorated style-wise, whilst having fun at the same time. She also works with companies in the fashion and corporate world, assisting them with styling and work-shops for their staff and/or customers. She was also Manager of the personal shopping team at Bicester Village in Oxfordshire until going on maternity leave in early 2018.
Over the past 20 years I have worked with many hundreds of clients from all over the world. I've helped them buy the perfect pair of skinny jeans... "cleansed" their wardrobes... held their hands when buying their first "investment purchase" handbag... helped new mums get their body confidence back... and been part of the incredible journey of finding clients their dream wedding gown... it's a very personal experience for each individual.
My job is to enable my clients to realise their fashion potential, showing them how to achieve or regain style confidence and dress specifically for their individual shape and colouring, considering personality, lifestyle and budget. Personal shopping is about selecting the right pieces for each individual - investment purchases to everyday essentials from the High Street to Harrods!
Really, my main aim is to make shopping a fun and rewarding experience for all.
