How to Dress to Impress
It may be a cliché but first impressions are crucial in everything - especially in business. Whether you are walking into a meeting, a job interview or entertaining clients, the first thing everyone sees, before you even open your mouth, is the way you are dressed. Of course it’s what you say that matters but, particularly in the business world, people make snap judgements on how you look. And even more frighteningly, according to a series of experiments by Princeton psychologists it takes a tenth of a second to form an impression of a stranger.
So, How do you Dress to Impress?
1. Do you feel confident in your outfit?
It's an obvious one, but the most important in our view. If you feel confident in what you are wearing you will project that and others will pick up on it. It’s no good wearing a beautifully tailored dress with a pair of old scruffy heels that have seen better days and a jacket with a button missing. Make sure that all elements of your outfit make a whole and that you are not just happy to be seen in it, but want to be seen wearing it.
2. Is it comfortable?
3. Is it right for the occasion?

Recently, members of the Libby team have been putting their sewing skills to good use by volunteering to make personal protective equipment (PPE) for the NHS.
In particular, fluid repellent gowns for our local Royal Brompton Hospital, upcycled from old theatre drapes. The volunteering scheme is led by The Fashion School's Caroline Gration and staff at the Royal Brompton hospital and is situated at Kensington and Chelsea College (KCC).
