ABOUT DANDY CLASS
One of our best tools for self expression in life is our clothing. Whether in a crowd or in photographs, our clothes tell the story of who we are before we even open our mouths. That’s why a complete and carefully crafted wardrobe is so important. It’s a visual calling card that signals to the world who you are and even who you want to be.
Wardrobe Building is a course I’m providing (available in group and one-on-one sessions) to help you tackle all things sartorial. Think of me as your personal style consultant, here for questions, advice and to bounce idea off of.
In the interactive group sessions we’ll go though the basics of a wardrobe. We’ll talk about inspiration, resources and the practical implementation of building your wardrobe with these things in mind. We’ll cover wearing hats, pairing ties and shirts, integrating color and color coordination. We’ll talk vintage and best practices for buying/maintaining pieces and how to achieve certain looks with modern brands.
In the one-on-one class, I’ll be working with you to define your style, develop looks that speak to your personality and work for your daily life. We’ll go through your existing wardrobe, examine each piece individually as part of a whole. We’ll build wishlists, digital mood boards and create actionable goal to achieve the wardrobe you hope to achieve. From basics for everyday to dressing for business to formal occasions, we'll cover it all and more. Along the way, I’ll teach you tips and tricks I’ve learned from of developing my own unique personal style.
Building a wardrobe from the ground up isn’t about buying the hottest trends or wearing the look from a mannequin. It’s about developing a working wardrobe that is personal, practical and cohesive. Developing personal style takes time and effort but with patience and collaboration, anything can be achieved.
