In the latest Blindness for Beginners editions, Richard Lane and Susannah Hancock, who are both blind, join Peter White to talk about ways of looking good and matching colours, without sight to help.
Richard brought with him his colour detector, which he demonstrated on his black guide dog.
Personal shoppers were suggested, as well as taking trusted friends and family, when buying clothes.
Both Susannah and Richard said that they were very concerned about the way they looked and wanted to know that they were well turned out at all times.
Peter suggested asking people to tell him if they could see any spillages or marks on his clothing, as sometimes people feel too awkward to say anything.
