The second Navhind Times Zest workshop was held on Sunday, June 12 at the Dempo House in Panaji. Goa’s first image consultant, Priyanka Row, was the facilitator of the half day workshop which was open to the age group of 23 years and above. The four hour session aimed at giving participants important tips on enhancing their image with emphasis on dressing right.

The class which consisted of students, business men and women, doctors, photographers, corporate trainers, teachers and others began with an explanation on image and its importance. Stressing on the need for portraying the right image, Priyanka said, “Tremendous competition means that individual personality, physical demeanour along with appropriate dressing must fuse into an appropriate picture. Your image should carry your identity – it should be your signature; neither outlandish nor hidden in mediocrity.”

The workshop covered a wide range of topics which included: clothes, colour analysis, self assessment and perfect fit. Under colour analysis she explained how choosing the right colours according to one’s hair, skin and eyes can work wonders. “Choosing the right colours to frame your face, which is your point of influence and communication, is the main objective of colour analysis. Your colour palette is determined by the value, intensity, and temperature of your hair, skin and eyes,” she added. Through a demonstration using different coloured fabrics on one of the participants, she explained this point further.

On the topic of style, she said, “Style is much more than Bollywood or fashion runaway. It is reflected in the way you speak, conduct yourself, the choices you make, the lifestyle you choose, your home, the car you ride and your life’s decisions. There are certain designated styles for men and women in the world – each one of us exhibits them knowingly or unknowingly. Awareness of your authentic style helps you consistently and positively project it.” She clearly defined the seven styles for women and the five styles for men, thus making it easier for participants to understand where they stood and how they could change if they so required.

She then went on to body shapes and types and explained the difference between the two. She also shared rules to dress each body shape, tips for the petite figure, tips to dress a large bust or a tummy and gave suggestions to ladies present on how to dress curves and accentuate the skinny bits of the body. Under dressing right for men, she gave pointers on the right clothes for different occasions right from shirts, trousers, ties, jackets, to footwear.

The question and answer session that followed cleared the doubts of participants and gave them tips on topics ranging from colours, fits, fabrics, accessories, where to shop, besides others.

The next workshop under the banner of Zest is scheduled for September so keep yourself posted!
