I had an opportunity to attend an interesting workshop on film production design recently and one of the topics being discussed was the importance of clothing to building the image of a character.
The presenter took the audience through the use of color, fabrics and styles to visually convey a particular message to the viewer. As the saying goes, clothes make the man or in our case the woman.
Regardless of where we are, it is fair to say that fashion is never too far from our thoughts, so the whole subject of film and clothing got the wheels in the old ‘noggin’ thinking about the movie capital of world and the topic of today’s blog. We are going back to Cali…
Los Angeles, California also known as the “City of Angels.” Home of Hollywood, the place where people flock in the hope of realizing their dreams. Some dreams do come true and others don’t, but for the ones who do, the rest of us follow their every look spending our days trying to replicate it on bank accounts with a few less zeros.
We can’t get you the haute couture designer labels at a steal, but we can certainly offer you some suggestions that will have you looking the part in the play that is your life.
Think about the image you want to portray and then own it, starting with the psychology of color. The colors you choose can send a subliminal message and illicit an emotional response so you should be cognizant of this when selecting an outfit for a particular event.
-The color black connotes authority and power. It is a very popular color for a number of other reasons, including the fact that it is slimming, but too much of it can also make you seem unapproachable.
-White sends a message of simplicity, purity, cleanliness and neutrality.
-Gray says sophistication and confidence.
-Purple represents sophistication, luxury and wealth.
-Green joins purple in symbolizing opulence and wealth, but a dark green can also send the message of masculinity and conservatism.
-Blue communicates loyalty and control. It causes the body to produce chemicals which emanate an aura of peace and tranquility.
The list goes on, but you get the point, the color of your clothing says a lot about you. Add to that the style of the clothing and the message it communicates and you can see why this becomes a big topic for film.
It should also be important to you. Getting back to the statement that clothes make you who you are – Diva says know YOU, choose the appropriate outfit from isntshelovelystore.com and work it honey, make it yours!
