Fashionista Lydia Bright, perhaps known for her role in The Only Way is Essex, will be treating shoppers in Lancashire to a fashion tips master class during a day of pampering at The Mall Blackburn.
Lydia, 23, will also be serving customers in a pop-up shop of her own boutique, Bella Sorella.
Lydia says: “My ultimate fashion tip, one that my mum always tells me, is never worry about being too overdressed.
“It’s always better to be overdressed than underdressed at an event. Always.
“I’m always overdressed but then everyone always notices what an effort you’ve made. People will remember you that way, too – make a statement.”
For those looking for some style inspiration, Lydia says she prefers being helpful over being hurtful
“I’m honest but I’m not nasty. Some people don’t dress to flatter their shape but it’s not a case of saying ‘Oh, you look really frumpy in that’, it’s a case of suggesting what they could try to make the most of their body.”
“If people are asking for your advice, they’re usually looking for help, so they’re not usually offended.”
The blonde bombshell always knew she wanted to work in the world of fashion.
And, with mum, Debbie, a former buyer for high street chain Debenhams, and a designer nan, perhaps the industry is in her blood.
“I just knew I wanted to be in the fashion world, whether it was a stylist, a fashion journalist or designer.
“Then TOWIE came along andgave me the platform to launch my own line and have my own boutique. I’m very fortunate.”
Lydia is also doing her bit for the UK economy as her own line, ‘The Lydia Rose Collection’ is manufactured right here in the UK.
She says. “When I left school it was so hard to get a job, so I wanted to promote the UK economy and provide jobs here.”
Catch Lydia at The Mall, Blackburn, next Sunday, May 18.
