Personal shoppers

Can anyone tell which high street stores have personal shoppers please?
I need an outfit for court and wondered if this would be the best way to do it.

I think most of the department stores have them - Harvey Nicks, Selfridges, John Lewis, Liberty, etc. Not sure about any of the high street chains....

I asked at Selfridges but they said that they do have them but you have to spend at least 1.5k. (That ruled me out!)

js - I've used two different people at Selfridges. I was never told there was a minimum - though this may be a new policy since it's been a couple of years since I was there. Not sure it's practical though - what if you don't find anything you like/want?

But, what was true at Selfridges is that you had to book quite a few weeks in advance....unless you were lucky enough to get a cancellation.

John Lewis do. I went to a work presentation there with them and they were very good. It is pretty booked up so act quickly

good idea. find assistant you like the look of if possible, someone about your age and who looks as though they make an effort to make the best of their appearance. pick a store whose stuff you like... and go for it. good luck
