About The Business
Colour Shape Style
The clothing you wear sends a message about your personality. It is a way to show others who you are and what you are all about. Yet so often we hide away behind black clothing, scared to wear colour, scared to show off our figures and body shape. I know I used to. Often we don't know what body shape we are. Sparkling Ginger was created to give you confidence to develop your style, to wear to colours that you love, that suit you and reflect your own unique individuality no matter what shape of size you are.
But more importantly I believe that everyone should be able to wear what they love, regardless of size. Once you have learnt your own rule of Colour Shape and Style I firmly believe that you can dress almost anywhere and with confidence.
I help my customers work through their rules and show them how to shop with their new knowledge but most importantly I help my clients to fall back in love with themselves and their clothes.
Styling for the Fuller Figure is my speciality and my passion. I spent years myself not thinking I could wear certain colours, shape and styles. I felt I should hide away under grey clothes.
My background is in design, styling, visual merchandising and I have always had a passion for Colour, Style and Clothing and Fabrics.
I cover a wide area such as Basingstoke, Reading, Farnham, Fleet, Overton,Tadley, Baughurst, Swindon, Andover, Theale, Winchester, Alton, Hampshire, Berkshire and Surrey or visit my studio, based in Basingstoke. Come and see my amazing green floor!
So who is Jo Marshall?
I started my design and colour career with my degree in Printed Textile and Fashion.
I worked freelance selling working to brands such as Speedo and Calvin Klein and greeting card companies. This also took me into visual merchandising working for Marks and Spencers.
Colour and print has always been my passion which led me into being a personal stylist.
I love talking, spots and dots, scarves (because they always fit), jewellery, especially necklaces. I love 40's and 50's style dresses. My favourite films are still Annie and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
My hair is a different colour every couple of months!
My husband calls me a magpie (and often makes squawking noises) as I home in on anything sparkly or colourful in a shop.
I'm a sucker for old furniture thinking I can turn it into something new.
My favourite colour combo is Coral and Aqua.
And finally, I want to learn how to play the double bass.

"I completed a colour and style session with Jo, what a fabulous day! Jo spent a lot of time explaining and showing the colours that worked with my skin tone and explaining the ones that did not and then proceeded to work through my body shape and suggested the perfect clothes that would work well with my figure. A very enjoyable day, Jo was relaxed in her style of explaining to me why things would work / would not work and I would recommend anyone to spend a day with Jo, the difference she has made to my dress sense / wardrobe has been fantastic!
