Description

You know that person you see and think, “she/he looks amazing!” Well there’s logic behind it and you too can have that harmonious, effortless look.

Come learn the basics on how to take garments and fit them to your individual body with the help of tailoring, fit and identifying color resulting in everything in your closet looking marvelous. Educate yourself to reengineer the S, M, L culture manufacturers have instilled into our society by learning not to be fixated on the sizing labels rather take yourself as a unique piece of art and decorate it accordingly.

About Narmeen in her own words:

I grew up as a child of immigrants and have spent my life in both Baltimore and Seattle. Both of my parents are from Pakistan, giving me the experience of growing up immersed in Pakistani culture but also living in a very Western world.

I had the benefit of being surrounded by clothes that were not only rich in color, but always the perfect fit.

How?

In Pakistani culture, the process of getting dressed is incredibly personalized. You don’t just go shopping – you go to the bazaar (marketplace) and purchase beautiful, unique fabrics that you take to the family tailor, resulting in clothes that are not only unique, but the perfect fit.

The experience of going to the bazaar and having a rich and personalized clothing experience was quite different than buying clothes at department stores or the mall, which I often did frequently. As I got more into fashion as a teen, I was a bit dismayed to learn that the whole “Small/Medium/Large” sizing structure was not very customizable.

Luckily, I quickly discovered that I could apply the tailoring tricks that I learned growing up in Pakistani culture to a Western wardrobe. There are so many ways to make clothes flatter your body when you know how.

I am also greatly influenced by the colors of Pakistani clothes growing up, although, if you asked me my favorite color, I wouldn’t be able to choose, because I love them all so much!

Color carries so much meaning and can instantly influence how we look and feel, and I love helping my clients experience that. Though it’s true that not everyone loves a fire-engine red, I can assure you that everyone has a shade of red that they look good in.

A little more about me, I am a busy body that enjoys people, tech, coffee, color and clothes! By day, I work at Microsoft as a Sr. Business Process Manager in Finance BI and by night (and weekends), I am an Image Consultant at Panached.
