In 2005, Martine decided to quit the corporate rat race, return to her fashion and styling roots and follow her dreams of giving her clients exactly what they wanted from their wardrobe - “It’s that relief when you know everything in your wardrobe works and the internal thrill when you know you look amazing and totally YOU”.

Retraining as a stylist before launching the ‘Martine Alexander’ brand, Martine has earned an exceptional reputation as one of the North West’s most sought-after and credible fashion experts with an established client base including celebrities and high profile, time-precious professionals.

“Put simply, I take the pressure out of looking amazing – whatever that pressure may be”. For me, the most important aspect of being a stylist is building a trusting relationship with my clients so they know I understand them.”

As well as styling celebrities for the red carpet, fashion shoots and TV appearances, Martine is a regular fashion expert for the BBC and also styles for national magazines such as Hello, OK, Closer, Woman and Look.

Her client list includes Natasha Hamilton, Liz McClarnon, Michelle Keegan, Paula Lane, Catherine Tyldesley, Samia Ghadie, Jennie McAlpine, Ali King, Michelle Collins, Georgia-May Foote, Fiona Wade, Sacha Parkinson, Tina O’Brien, Gemma Merna, Lucy Dixon and Suzanne Shaw.
