I've been interested in style and fashion for as long as I can remember. Back in the day, the problem was getting your hands on the right information. Niche information was a lot less accessible before the age of the internet.
Now, we have the opposite problem.
I remember browsing the web many years ago when the internet started booming and information became a lot more accessible to the masses. It seemed like new fashion websites were popping up daily!
Being an amateur but avid enthusiast at the time, I felt like the information was consuming me instead of the other way around. I've always had a mind and appreciation for structure and systems (naturally, as my first career is in education), and I was looking to understand and process as much information on style as I could find.
The problem was (and currently is) that there are many competing and unprofessional opinions on style out there with no tangible system or framework to back up the claims.
To me, education implies a step-by-step process and framework with foundational principles. When I first started out in the world of style and image, I was overwhelmed and lost with all the information. It took years of digesting as much information as I could and attending 3 image schools to build a system that I could understand and utilize daily.
Fast forward a few years…
My mission is to educate people on proven style and image formulas that improve confidence and create harmony and beauty.
Today, I want to make it easy for you and eliminate the stress and headaches that I endured during my 20 year-long education process.
Let's start with some basic red flags that can help you identify some problem areas.
1. You're wearing colours that "kill" your face
I'm pretty sure most of you have seen a colour wheel and learned colour theory in school. Even if you happened to be paying attention during that class, this is what your teacher didn't tell you: not all colours were created equal.
If they were, each of us would look fresh, radiant, and young every day! Any colour can look good on a canvas, provided the artist used the right colour combination. Yet, did your teacher tell you that not every colour looks good on every person?
You have probably noticed that sometimes people look "off" in certain colours, but what does that mean? How do you know which colours work and which don't?
Those of you that have not found their colours yet (which translates into their colouring) are forced to take serious risks when shopping for new clothes. That is because you don't know which colours make you look like a goddess and which make you look… well, sickly.
Those who know their Colour Code can confidently choose clothes that make them look even more beautiful and radiant!
2. Your clothing is emphasizing things that you don't want to be emphasized
