“They took a simple picnic. Fresh brown bread, white Wensleydale cheese, crimson radishes, yellow butter, scarlet tomatoes, round bright green Granny Smiths and a bottle of mineral water. They took no books….They walked down through flowering lanes. The high hedges were thick with dog-roses, mostly a clear pink, sometimes white, with yellow-gold centres dusty with yellow pollen. These roses were intricately and thickly entwined with rampant wild honeysuckle, trailing and weaving creamy flowers among the pink and gold.”

-A.S. Byatt

“Vain trifles as they may seem, clothes have, they say, more important offices than to merely keep us warm. They change our view of the world and the world's view of us.”

-Virginia Woolf

Color is powerful.

Color is one of the first descriptors we reach for when we tell a story…and so too are descriptions of clothing.

The colors and styles we wear, the moods we evoke: these details feature heavily in others’ impressions of us, from loved ones to friends we haven’t made yet to people we may never see again.

Are they seeing the genuine you?
