I was offered a consultation by Fatima and I went to her new office in Design District 3.
At the beginning, she had an informal chat to know my likes and dislikes and she asked me multiple questions to determine my personality.
Then she made me sit in front of a mirror and placed different groups of color swatches to see how it enhanced the way I look. She also taught me what sign to look for as we brought those colours closed to my skin.
Part of the consultation also involved seeing wether gold or silver were my metals.
At the end of the consultation, Fatima was really happy that she had a lot of colours to work with for me and my report would follow.
Fatima applies her expertise in the field of interiors and this is among the first of her products .
I cant thank Fatima enough for the detailed report that she sent me which not only told me what type i was, my seasonal influences, my personality, fabrics and textures to look for/ avoid, accessories, recommendations for my wardrobe, my hair colour, my makeup, my fragrance as well as my career.
Some of which are eye openers.
