Fabulous Fashionistas – Women To Admire

This Month I admire Valerie Von Sobel
Ms Von Sobel fled her native Hungary in 1956.
She moved to California years later as an actress. She has had an eventful life, and is one of the admired women in the book “Advanced Style”.

In her early 70s, Ms Von Sobel embraced fashion full on, creating her own iconic style. She now has a blog, a fabulous Instagram page, and a devoted fashionista following. Fashion is all about expressing yourself!

Body Geometry

Body Geometry is my system for designing and engineering clothing to fit the different body shapes: Circle, Square, Rectangle, Triangle, Inverted Triangle, and Hourglass.

Let’s talk about the square. I will use myself as example. I have a square shape torso. I also have long legs, short arms, and a normal length neck. My long legs help me look a bit taller than my 5′ 2.5″. I like that. I can wear the top at left, over slim pants instead of this skirt because that makes my body look less like a square.

Which shape are you? If you are unsure, come on in to my atelier, or send a picture of yourself in a leotard, and I will advise you!

This top & skirt combination is great for a woman with shorter legs.
