Engineers escape TV makeover


ENGINEERS WERE not the worst dressed when TV style stars Trinny & Susannah trawled through Mouchel Parkman staff last week in search of people to makeover.

A transport consultant and a land agent were singled out for sartorial overhaul during filming for an episode of a new ITV1 series, Undress the Nation, to be screened in the autumn.

Susannah's victim was 26year-old Saaher Muzafer, while Trinny picked on late-40s Jonathan Scott-Smith. Both were whisked off to Selfridges for a new look after some intense discussion in the specially erected pink pod in Mouchel Parkman's Holborn office.

Transport technology consultant Muzafer's black sweatshirt under pink t-shirt with jeans and trainers was thrown out in favour of £700 worth of grey jacket, white t-shirt, blue trousers and leather Prada shoes. A vibrant mint jumper completed the look. 'I was delighted, ' he said.

Scott-Smith was less sure.

The land agent's original preppy look - suede brogues, red socks, a pale blue double-cuffed shirt tucked into dark blue chinos pulled together with a bright red belt - was not good according to Trinny. She remodelled him in a light blue shirt, shiny grey trousers and plimsolls.

'The trousers won't be worn again - my clothes are not grey and shiny, ' said Scott-Smith.

'But the plimsolls had an outing at a barbecue at the weekend and the shirt's okay if you like plastic buttons.'
