Part 2 This week and next I'll wrap up an interview a graduate student, Ivan Iannoli, held with me recently. Iannoli is completing his master of fine arts degree in photography at UCLA and posed several questions to me. Last week I printed the first portion of the interview.
Q. If I'm surrounded by the "right" colors, that is, the colors that best suit me, how might my life be different than if I were surrounded by the wrong, or inappropriate colors? The right colors are supportive, not dominant, and highlight a person's eyes, skin, hair, bone structure and energy intensity. All clothing in one's closet can easily be coordinated together. Fewer items of clothing will be needed. The wrong colors can create stress on others and become barriers to communication. The wrong colors can add weight and age. For example, black is a fashion color but should be reserved for one with black hair as it will complement the hair, skin and eyes. Otherwise, it can be aging and accentuate lines in the face. Wearing the correct colors generates a feeling of harmony resulting in an accurate and positive self-image while increasing self-esteem and confidence.
