Crossword Genius

Fashion consultant initially going well, then looking pale (3,3)


I believe the answer is:

gok wan

Here is my best explanation:

'fashion consultant' is the definition.
(TV fashion expert Gok Wan)

'initially going well then looking pale' is the wordplay.
'initially' indicates taking the first letters.
'well' becomes 'ok' (synonyms).
'then' says to put letters next to each other.
'looking pale' becomes 'wan'.
The first letter of 'going' is 'g'.
'g'+'ok'+'wan'='GOK WAN'
