Colour Analysis Report

Colour consultants work with clients in improving a vast array of areas where colour is of vital importance. They normally work with clients to improve their appearance, their home lives, and even their place of business. Colour consultants work to enhance moods, set tones, and accent natural beauty in a number of ways.

As a wardrobe consultant myself, colour consultancy is of particular relevance when I am working individually with clients (usually women) who want to enhance their natural looks with appropriate colours. I help clients to pick out clothing, makeup and accessories that best accent their natural hair, eye and skin colour.
My main focus is that on determining the perfect tonal/colour palette for my clients and passing this information onto them as shown in the attached Colour Analysis Reports provided to a striking warm autumn colour palette client, Mary-Lois Wilson and a soft summer colour palette, Jessica MacDonald.



Special thanks to the lovely Ms Wilson and Mrs MacDonald for sharing these reports with everyone.

Hot in the City

Following the footsteps of the Australian landscape is the desert-inspired colour palette that several designers took on board for their spring/summer 2011-12 collections.

Safari hues such as gold, sand, beige, rust and maroon appeared in the designs of Alex Perry, Carl Kapp, Kirrily Johnston, Therese Rawsthorn, Manning Cartell, Ellery, Fernando Frisoni and Nicola Finetti.

In continuing its popularity, bright, bold colour blocking continues to dominate the catwalks standing out in collections such as Sass and Bide opening their shows in multi-coloured tribal prints of fuchsia mixed with

To really warm up your look for summer, work hot-to-touch desert shades with softer neutrals or classic blacks, with simple accessories and killer heels.

Think vivid rich jewel colours of amethyst, sapphire, emerald, ruby pink and ruby red, citrine, amber and orange garnet.

Another vibrant colour hitting the runways, which hasn’t had much exposure since the 1970’s, is burnt orange which is flattering on most skin tones.  Expect to see this colour lusted after by many designers in rich, spicy tones and luxe embellishments.
