We like to take our clients on a journey when they get a makeover, a journey through time and space, and a personal transformation. That’s why we begin at the Met. Here you can visit places like Egypt, Europe, and America in the world of art and architecture. What we focus on is European and American art. We share our research with our clients about color and contrast analysis while showing them representative works of art from Cézanne, van Gogh, and others.

One of the first things we discuss is the client’s contrast level, which I also discuss in a video on this site. You can find out a lot about how to enhance your image by doing a contrast level analysis of a person. Then we show some works of art to illustrate these principles.

When we walk through the museum, we pass through exhibits from the Middle Ages, and our frame of reference changes. We allow the client to tell us what they wish to accomplish, and in this creative environment we begin to share our ideas.

When we finish looking at the works of art, we sit down for a coffee in The American Wing Café. The last time I was there I had two double espressos and a cup of tea. Then my associate and I go over the basis of our research findings. We share three decades of research on how to be more effective at work by improving various aspects of your image. We cover hairstyles, wardrobe, footwear, and accessories.

This process gives our clients a good orientation. Then we shop with them. We take them to the hairstylist first, if they wish. Then we go to Madison Avenue and Fifth Avenue and shop with them to show them the styles we recommend. They are under no obligation to buy anything since we’re not affiliated with these stores we visit. But most clients find time to make up the deficits in their wardrobe.

The beauty of starting at the Met is that it gives the whole process a wonderful, timeless appeal. It lets our creative side thrive, and it allows a client to feel relaxed and at ease as we begin to open their eyes to new possibilities for their image.
