How we dress
Personal style and fashion. Nothing is as personal as the way we dress. It is the package of our personality that shows the world who we are, what we are planning to do and how we see ourselves.
Personal style and fashion
Who am I?
The key question is: what does my clothing say about me? How does it show my character? Does it show my view on life? Is my creative spirit expressing itself ? Am I connecting to the world?
What am I up to?
But the answer to the following questions can also be read from the way we dress: What am I going to do today? How does my day look like? Am I going to a party? Or am I running my business today? Do I take care for the people around me, take a walk through the woods, or is there a tough sailing trip planned?
Clothing communicates how I see the world around me
Finally, clothing can build a bridge to the people around you: how does my clothing communicate how I see the world around me? Do people trust me? Are they happy seeing something beautiful? Do I add a spark of color by the way I dress? Does my clothing show a funny aspect that makes people wonder or even laugh?
Now these are just a few questions that come to mind when I think about the way we dress. And the more specific your needs in life, the more you will look for a way to connect your lifestyle with the way you dress.
How we choose
We buy our clothes in stores and online. And, of course, most clothing is purchased for practical reasons. However, some items of clothing play a different role. These items of clothing are purchased under the guise of an ‘experience’, because while we enjoy the process of choosing and selecting, we make special memories that ensure that we will cherish the purchased item for a long time.
The moment you have a specific need, you turn to other options than just the regular ones. You are looking for a personal shopper, a dressmaker or tailor, or a dressmaker. They offer help with this selection process, not only with their professional view on your appearance, but also taking into account your social and practical needs.
The way we dress says a lot about us. And although the language of the way you dress is very powerful, the selecting process can sometimes be very intimidating. This is especially true if you are entering a new phase of your life, whether it is a new career path or a new phase as a woman (getting married, becoming a mother or a new beginning as a mother with an ’empty nest’).
In addition, most of us wonder to what extent we need to adapt to current trends. Because are these essential to find our way in life and society? Or are they just confusing because they will never distinguish us from the masses?
So: what we do?
At Saskia ter Welle Haute Couture we offer a solution to find your personal style and fashion. A solution that helps you navigate through all choices to present yourself in special situations; whether it is an important meeting with the management of a company, a portfolio presentation, a wedding or a fundraising event.
We see you as a person. A unique person. We look at your natural characteristics (skin, hair, eyes, body type) and analyse your specific characteristics in this new situation. How would you like other people to see you? And how can we ‘play’ with all the elements to make that new version of you? We have an astonishing number of tools with which we can create a new reality: fabric, color, shape, pattern, accessories and handmade (in some cases even personalised) embellishments.
