Lisa Lyford - founder
"A while ago a friend told me she was ugly! I was stunned, I couldn't believe it - here's an outgoing, bubbly, fun-loving, attractive woman and that's what she thinks about herself!
She's not alone. A lot of women have hang ups, though I'd like to think my friend is at the extreme end of the scale.
This, and other examples, are what inspired me to create Gorgeous Me; a place where women can get guidance and support when developing their personal style, to gain knowledge and confidence, and ultimately to feel great.
A huge thanks to everyone who supported and encouraged me, and those that gave their professional expertise and guidance, you know who you are. Special special thanks to my gorgeous friends and family who modeled for me, stepping well outside of their comfort zones. And enormous love to my hubby and boys for believing in me and always being there - I am very lucky to have you."
Lisa has many years (read: "lots of years") experience in marketing, communications and advertising, including co-owning a successful marketing communications business. She started her career at the NZ Wool Board in fashion marketing and SR Gents in the UK, a large clothing manufacturer supplying to Marks & Spencers. Lisa is a trained image style consultant.
Lisa is married with two boys, lives in the coolest little capital in the world, and loves all things design - fashion, graphic, art, interior and architectural - not to mention food and wine. Three years ago she completed Outward Bound, which took her wayyyyyy outside her comfort zone and she rates it as one of her top achievements, and also what helped inspire her to create Gorgeous Me.
