Clothes Encounters as the journey to FREEDOM by experiencing your true nature.  It is one thing to work with what is already known (books, theories, magazines, etc.).  It’s another thing to take a journey into uncharted waters – Our own divine essence.  Anybody can repeat what they have read or heard from someone else.  What is YOUR own true experience?  WHO ARE YOU?   Let us find out together!

And remember, the journey IS the destination.  You choose the route.  All roads lead home.  It just depends on which route you decide to take.  With Clothes Encounters the discovery of your true nature (divinity) has a couple of routes and we always begin with where you are at in the moment:

From the outside in – Practical Magic:  If you simply want tips as to how to dress and/or develop a smashing wardrobe, you may want to start with the following:  ‘Wardrobe Personality, Accessories Magic, Clothing Capsule Concept, Closet Evaluation, Dress to Express)

From the inside out – Where Image Reflects the Truth: If you find that you are on the path to self-actualization you may want to explore going deeper to help you lift the masks that filter out the truth.  Begin with “Wardrobe Personality” , “Reflections of your True Image Workshop” and morph into “Discover the True Goddess/God Within” using Personal Consultations.  Then we can explore the perfect wardrobe to express that truth with Practical Magic.
