THe world really needs more of David Zyla, Suzanne Caygill, and other stylists who know the value and power of colour analysis. David Zyla and Suzanne Caygill both seem to have similar style and colour archetypes - Zyla has a Bronze Autumn - Divine Diva archetype, which he describes as 'exotic' and seems to fit me very well. Suzanne Caygill, similarily has a Bronze Autumn 'Magnetic' archetype - check it out:
Here is a photo of Caygill's bronze autumn magnetic next to two of my photos:
And here is a collage created by a Facebook friend Jen Marie based on David's Bronze Autumn - 'Divine Diva' archetype:
David's Zyla's book 'Color Your Style' is a Must-Have! Getting your colours done is step one in my opinion, but putting your best self forward is more than just having a palette to work with, David's concepts of the archetypes and power colours makes your personal palette even more individual and specific to you. I love the whole notion of an archetype - I was excited to get a personal message from David Zyla since creating a Facebook album called 'My Color Style - David Zyla' - David was nice enough to respond to a recent collage that I posted and wrote:
"Hi. You are indeed a Bronze Autumn, Renata! Thanks again for all of your support of The Color of Style! Best, David". - David Zyla
David is so inspiring and getting a personal validation about my bronze autumn - divine diva archetype was so awesome - really shows that David does take the time to help others on their colour journey and is passionate about what he does - now I'm an even 'bigger' Zyla fan!!!
The next step for me is to really delve into the Bronze Autumn archetype and study David's concepts in even more depth - I look forward to continue sharing my colour journey with you all - this is so exciting!!!
ALso, definitely check out David's recent interview where he talks about finding your best 'LBD' shade - I'll definitely be doing a post about soon:
