Interview with Personal Shopper Becky

Becky, the Personal Shopping Manager at Bentalls, Kingston and her wonderful team help customers in one to one appointments with their fashion needs. Personal shopping is seen as a bit overwhelming and intimidating, when really it’s the opposite; you will get to know a kind, understanding, friendly and professional Stylist. With years of combined experience, they know what real women and men need from their wardrobes, and understand that we all have budgets and time constraints too.
We spoke to Becky about the exciting things happening in store this season and the best kept styling secrets she swears by.
