Jo Allen is an award-winning colour, style and image consultant. Having trained initially with Europe’s leading image consultancy Colour Me Beautiful, she has also undertaken further professional training with a variety of other industry experts, including London College of Fashion, KLC School of Design, Arden Reece Color and Fashion Feng Shui International. She is currently the only licensed Fashion Feng Shui® facilitator in Norfolk and is also a Director of the Federation of Image Professionals International (FIPI).
Her work includes offering image, colour and style advice to individuals and groups, in-store promotional and training work for retail businesses, as well as talks and presentations to business, clubs and networking groups. She has been a contributor to BBC Radio Norfolk and had articles published in the Eastern Daily Press, EDP Norfolk magazine, ‘Coastal’ magazine, KL magazine, ‘Take One’ magazine and ‘Best of Norfolk’. Additional ‘fun’ commitments have included judging the ‘Heavenly Hats’ competition at the Royal Norfolk Show and appearing in the CMB book ‘Colour Me Younger’!
Prior to training as a colour and style consultant, Jo spent several years working as a Senior PA/Secretary in both the private and public sector. Having completed a Business Studies degree in 1997 as a ‘mature’ student(!), she spent some time looking for the right business opportunity and has never looked back on her decision to retrain as an image consultant and personal stylist. She is also a farmer’s wife and mother of two daughters, so brings a wealth of different experience to the advice she can offer to clients in her image consultancy role.
