Personal Colour Stylist
How I got started
I like to call myself a ‘slasher’; I’m a trainer, personal development coach and a colour stylist. I love my jobs!
My colour journey started a few years ago. During an online course to find out more about my own seasonal colour type. It was a total eye opener for me… Colour can have a huge impact on how we look, how we feel and how others see us. When we get it right, it transforms our look.
Now I understood why I often had bad buys! And combinations weren’t always easy to make in my wardrobe… I discovered the red thread and realised that colours that are beautiful on others, aren’t necessarily as great on me. This new knowlegde gave me so much guidance and it helped me make better choices. Whenever I open my closet, I feel delight. This feeling was so good, that I decided I wanted to learn more about colour and share this colour wisdom with other people too! That’s how it started and I’ve seen so many happy faces in the mirror since. It’s much more than learning which colours look best on you; it boosts your confidence and helps you to feel like YOU.
Globally, the fashion industry is the second most polluting industry after the oil and gas sector.
Let’s work together in buying less but better. I promise, it will make you much more grateful and happy! Loving your garments even more.
Life is not about finding yourself. life is about creating yourself

What’s Carmen’s style?
Buy less, buy better: When you know your colours it helps to decide in what items to invest.
Pretty: I love when people feel beautiful, energised and confident, by wearing colours that enhance their beauty.
Enjoyable: a colour session is super fun!
Practical: I help you to actually understand colours, so you can identify colours that work well for you.
Careful and complete: precise info about your colour type.
Beforehand I thought I actually knew what looks good on me, but this workshop showed me what makes me sparkle. Insightful and some surprising conclusions and colours. Carmen takes the time for a thorough, professional profile analysis. The colour fan is very handy. It’s so fun to do, also with a friend!
That was such a brilliant, brilliant morning, thank you so much Carmen! I had heaps of fun but most of all really enjoyed it. And I’m super excited to go through my wardrobe. The info on jewellery and make-up was very enlightening as well. You are fab at it too, I came away feeling really positive about it and myself. Thank you!
With Carmen’s advice I look differently at the clothes I have in my closet and the things I’m thinking of buying. Plus, I feel braver in trying new colours and combinations in clothes, make-up and jewellery.
