Personal Shopping With Cathy Prior

Cathy Prior has more than a decade of experience as a visual merchandiser, personal shopper and stylist at well known high street retailers in flagship stores in Belfast and London’s world-renowned Oxford Street.

We are as happy to take you shopping in Primark and Peacocks as we are to swan around Harrods and Harvey Nichols with you. We are also great believers in visiting the wonderful markets and charity shop, Madonna famously donated a heap of her cast offs to Islington’s Oxfam – good enough for us!

The benefit of a guided tour of London’s best shopping is perfect for our international clients who are visiting on a retail therapy mission. Let us be your shopping buddy for the day with all the benefits of 10 year’s experience in visual merchandising and styling.

Our shopping service charges are based on;

  • The amount of time we spend with you
  • The number of outfits you want to buy
  • Which and how many shopping districts you want to visit

Shopping is also based on the quality of brand you want to shop at, as a rough guide;

  • High Street – Primark, Peacocks, Matalan, charity shops, markets
  • Retail – Top Shop, H&M, Miss Selfridges,  River Island, GAP, Zara, Mango, Urban Outfitters, TK Maxx
  • Brand – Karen Millen, All Saints, Reiss, Jigsaw, Ted Baker
  • Designer – Paul Smith, D&G, Prada, Guicci, Chanel, Vercace, Vivienne Westwood

Here’s a very rough guide as to the minimum you can achieve in terms of outfits and time with us;

  • 1 outfit – 2 hours shopping
  • 2-3 outfits – 4 hours
  • Whole new wardrobe – all day or more – you better wear comfortable shoes!

Ideally you need a £250 to £300+ clothes budget to get the most out of your shopping experience with us. We understand many clients want to test us out and that not all out clients have Elton John’s wardrobe budget so we are happy to offer ‘flash shopping’ packages where we advise £100 spending money as an absolute minimum.
