What Season are You?

When we think of the seasons, we usually think of the calendar and the different phases of the year, but did you know that every human is also a season!?! As a retired hair, make-up and fashion stylist much of my work has been geared around this theory. From hair to make-up to wardrobe, choosing the right colours for your skin tone is key to completing an overall look that suits you best.

As of late, I have been focusing my creativity on making wearable art and combining my past trade experience to my current art projects. Most of the work I am doing at the moment consists of knitting and painting on silk – all dyed naturally or by using Ciba Washfast acid dye. I am also learning to spin yarn which I will be dying soon…. and using in my wearable art, of course!

So, do you know which season you are? I will be touching on this subject at greater length in the weeks to come to help you figure it out by giving you a guideline based on your skin tone. As you know, helping people look their best is something I am very passionate about! I wanted to start on this topic by gathering the colour charts above to give you some examples of the palettes that suits each season best. As you can see, there is a broad spectrum to choose from for each season. So which season are you most attracted to? It will be fun to see if this is the one that suits you best! I am also using this colour theory to create a collection of wearable art aptly called “Four Seasons”. And I am working towards launching a store on my website in early 2018 where you will be able to view and purchase my work. So stay tuned!!! xoxo

  1. I took the course back in the 90s and I’m a certified colour consultant. I remember the first time someone analyzed my skin tones and declared that I was an autumn. I liked autumn colours so I didn’t question the consultant’s conclusions. I started to wear autumn colours and my father knew right away that I wasn’t an autumn. When I went for the training one of the trainees diagnosed me as a spring and I told her she was wrong because I still thought I was an autumn. After the leaders of the course re-assesed me I was finally convinced that I was a spring. I love bright, warm colours which are not always easy to find especially in the winter months. I look forward to seeing your new collection.
