During Covid-19, Cathy is providing talks on the importance of image – three essential elements for presenting success in the virtual world.
How to present yourself online so that you feel confident and are expressing the best version of yourself. What do your clothes say about you? Cathy has a guide on how to explore and enhance your personal style and how to choose pieces that work well on camera.
The psychology of colour and colour combinations. Colours influence perceptions and emotions for the wearer and the viewer. Making the right colour choices allows the wearer to determine how they are perceived.
Dress for success. Identifying the visual prompts of personal success and how to make your personal brand appeal to the values of your audience.
You may want to go deeper with your audience. Masterclasses can be tailored and developed to suit your audience needs, be it a 90-minute Masterclass, a half-day or full-day workshop or a full online or face-to-face programme. Please contact one of our expert team to discuss.
Enhancing Your Personal Style
Many of us lack the confidence or fashion know-how to wear the clothes that really convey our personality, or suit our body shape. In this masterclass on how to enhance your personal style, stylist and broadcaster Cathy O’Connor guides you through the key elements of style: how to identify and dress for your body shape, choose colour and cut, avoid or follow trends, and select accessories.
You can then ‘shop the looks’ if you wish, so you don’t have to go looking for them. This is a fun and surprisingly rewarding masterclass that will build your confidence as well as your wardrobe.
