Fashion is about more than just your clothes. Fashion encompasses all of your look, language and living. Fashion starts at your head and ends at your toes. Fashion is just one mode for your personal expression, it is a way of acting and it is a way of communicating. Fashion is your advertisement about who you are, what you believe and what you want to share with the world. Fashion is not based on income, but it does reflect your character. Fashion is all about style, dress, conduct and your verbal and non-verbal expressions.
Does your fashion help you to stand out in a crowd – is your personal image/brand easily recognizable and distinguishable? Fashion is your mirror to the world. When the world looks at you, what do you reflect to them? Fashion is not sexist at all; fashion is for men and women, young and old and exists all over the world. Fashion crosses all racial and national barriers while allowing for the expression of cultural pride and history. Fashion is about the clothes you wear, the jewelry and accessories that bring purpose and flavor to your visual recipe and the cologne or perfumes you use to create an aroma of attraction or fragrance of excitement. Your skin, your eyes, your clothing, your language, your manners, your jewels, your hair and your smile are all a part of your fashion.
MODA Image Consulting is all about giving your fashion a boost – or for some, a start. We can help your fashion grow, change, better reflect who you are and who you want to be. We can bring pizzazz to a romance, a raise at the office, and a WOW at the home. Fashion is always making a statement.
- Is your statement improving every year or are you just keeping the status quo?
- Are you blending in with everything else like a black and white picture?
- Is your fashion improving or disintegrating?
- Do you have an energy that makes you pleasant to be around, or has fear of fashion led you down the road of dull and stale?
There is no time than better than the present to define your fashion, reignite your closet, open up your wardrobe and create new looks, invest in a new statement, improve how you see yourself and influence how others see you. MODA is here from head to toe…from comb to shoes…from inner conflict to outer reflection. Make fashion work for you. People will say it’s just clothing, it’s not important or it’s shallow. For me, fashion is an expression of who you are, what you believe and what you want your legacy to be. Fashion is a tool of expression and a means for communicating with everyone that sees you, even when you do not see them.

Here is a sneak peak of fall colors – and a few examples of these vibrant shades from Oscar’s fall line…Enjoy!
Bamboo, a surprising fall hue, brings a warm, exotic flavor to the season.
Radiant Emberglow, a traditional autumnal tone, emanates the warmth of a glowing fire – the perfect panacea to the crisp air of fall.
Offering a sense of continuity from spring, dynamic Honeysuckle adds a bold punctuation point.
Phlox, a magical, deep purple with a hint of mystery, is an outstanding statement when worn on its own.
Cedar is a versatile, mid-tone neutral green. It is a natural with Deep Teal, and sophisticated and timeless with Phlox or Orchid Hush.
Deep Teal, a strong, blue-toned green, suggests ocean depths and the color of the sky as daylight descends into darkness.
Rich, decadent Coffee LiqueÃºr brings a sense of elegance to fall, and is a savory alternative to basic black.
Nougat is tastefully embellished by Phlox, Emberglow or Honeysuckle.
Orchid Hush, a unique tone of gray with complex orchid undertones, blends well with any other color in the palette.
Quarry, a reliable medium gray, remains, as always, a practical, dependable staple.
(All looks from the fall 2011 Oscar de la Renta runway show!)
TIPS TO REMEMBER:
- You don’t have to look like big bird to enjoy the lemon or bamboo color – mix only small accents of it with your neutrals like grey, black and white by using belts, shirts, pins, shoes or only one simple piece like a shirt.
- Everyone can wear a shade of red – YES YOU CAN! There is a tone out there that will work for your skin coloring, I promise. Don’t miss out on this exquisite color.
- Burgundy is the epitomy of class and elegance.
- Your neutral shoes that you bought this spring – THEY ARE STILL IN.
- Black opaque panty hose are IN. YES I SAID IN. (The trick with hose is to make sure you aren’t wearing ‘suntan’ if your face is white). Accent yourself in basic NUDES and shades of grey and black. For those women who aren’t keen on showing your knees or legs for some reason – you are allowed to wear hose but be careful. You can immediately look OUT OF DATE if done incorrectly.

Oscar de la Renta…and me! As you can imagine, meeting one of my fashion icons would be an amazing event even if I only had the opportunity to shake his hand so you can understand my excitement as I found myself alone with him, his beautiful step daughter, Eliza,who is the vice-president of the $250 million licensing department, and her husband, Alex Bolen, who is the company’s CEO.

You can always look great. Click here to read the entire story and be inspired!
