Episode #90 Leverage Your Image with Rachel Nachmias

May 3, 2017

Rachel Nachmias, Founder of  Best Dressed Image & Color Consulting can teach you how to leverage your image, to create a 7 figure effortless style that is uniquely you. So if Oprah calls, you will know what to wear!

Despite being a creative, Rachel enrolled in Bryn Mawr College in Philadelphia to study Political Science, thinking this was her path, and made art her hobby.  After two years, she realized that her true love was in fashion design, so she switched to Parsons School of Design.  Despite her chosen field, Rachel privately struggled with her own style whilst attending Parsons, and beyond.  Somewhat by accident, Rachel discovered some tools that helped her define her unique personal style, which gave her confidence and a healthy body image, and decided that she needed to bring this knowledge to the world.

Rachel became a Certified 12 Blueprints Personal Colour Analyst, which allows her to help clients identify the colours that work best with their colouring and features.  Ideally this is done in person, or via one of her colleagues that is local to the client.   Color analysis is one of several tools that Rachel uses to identify her clients’ unique style.

In color analysis, the three properties that are considered are hue (warm or cool), value (light or dark) and chroma (bright or soft).  When several colors are adjusted to similar levels for these three properties, they will harmonize together.  

Rachel shares three concepts that require a good understanding of in order to zero in on the style that works for your brand, goals, shape and personality:  

  1. Know where you want to go in your business, and who you want to attract
  2. Identify how you dream of presenting yourself
  3. Consider your shape when choosing clothing, makeup and hairstyles

Rachel highly recommends that foundation clothing, especially bras, be properly fitted so that clothes will fit properly.  In fact, many a time her clothing shopping with clients begins with a professional bra fitting.  In addition, factoring in proper tailoring clothing is so important towards fit and comfort.  

Designers typically design clothing in much smaller sizes, called vanity sizing, which are in fact 2 sizes smaller than the retail versions. Many designers stop at size 10 as well, given that the average american woman is a size 16.  Finding the retail stores that sell clothing that work for you will make shopping all the more pleasurable.
