Tracy Richardson is passionate about what she teaches - "how to create personal harmony where nothing stands out except you". She has had impressive experience working with television (like CBC and CTV), corporations, celebrities, politicians including those in our recent election, and other diverse clients. With great enthusiasm, Tracy shared her styling knowledge with an intimate group of 17 customers, friends, and volunteers at the thrift boutique and social enterprise of Battered Women’s Support Services, My Sister’s Closet.

Tracy’s animated presentation included advice on most suitable necklines, colours, prints, hair styles, makeup, and accessories based on the combined attributes of face shape, eyes, lips, hair, and body. For example, face shape determines which neckline to wear: a round neckline is more flattering to an oval or round face. Generally, if a body is curvy, patterns and accessories should also have curved lines. Further, body size dictates pattern and accessory size. According to Tracy, the wrong pattern can make a person look much older than she is.

With emphasis Tracy says WEAR LESS BLACK! She cited anecdotes where partners are more attracted to colour than to black. She showed the audience how various colour palettes either bring the eye to the face, preferably, or just to the colour. She claims that the right colours will attract more of what you want and there is a good selection to choose from as each palette she presents contains 30 colours.

At the end of the workshop, 3 lucky people won 2 to 3 hour personal consultations at My Sister’s Closet with Tracy. Other guests were offered a 1-hour free consultation if they bought something from the store. By the time we left, we knew a lot more that when we came but, we still wanted more. Samantha Kearney, organizer of the event and supervisor of My Sister’s Closet is keen to have her back. We can also look forward to Tracy’s course at Langara College, blog, and radio show which are currently under development.
