Find your true colors
Facing a window, I will stand behind you as we look into a mirror. We will drape your face with colored fabrics and decide whether each color is great, ok or not-so-good. We will then sort swatches cut from the color drapes into corresponding piles. You will take this packet of swatches with you to use at your closet and as you shop. We can work individually or in small groups.
"Color Yourself Coordinated"
By Helene Quigley,
April 5th, 2001
Anne Fenner, a leading image and clothing consultant working in Omaha, believes that the development of a strong professional wardrobe begins with a systematic approach to color analysis.
To discover her clients' best colors, Fenner uses a method called "color draping." Clients are draped in a well-lighted room, bare-faced, with as many as 60 large swatches of solid colored fabrics. The skin-coloring plays the most vital role in determining which color group (or groups) you will belong in.
Think of your body as the canvas and your clothing as the paint. Skillful use of color can help you create the image you want to project. It can also save you money.
Let Anne help you select colors for your building, your office, your home...or yourself.
Before and After: Color, Clothing, Style...
JM is an engineer. Although she was qualified to lead her company, she didn't look the part. A former client recommended I work with her and persuaded her company to hire me to help with image, etiquette and style development. JM was reluctant at first. After a couple of months of working together, she shared her realization: Image had originially seemed superficial; but now that she knew what to do, she could relax and move forward confidently. "Once she knew the steps, the dance was easy." She ended up feeling comfortable as she served as CEO of the Fischer Corporation, a division of Monsanto.

We want to thank you for making our "color" time with you so special. You really gave it the personal touch! My sister Mary said the time was all she hoped it would be for all of us. Thank you.
