Secrets Of Dressing You First | Valentina Cirasola | Designer

Girl-Pink-Green-1aWelcome to a new Friday Fashion episode.
I will be hosting a fashion seminar on Nov. 13, 2016 at 10:30 in Los Gatos, CA. This is the third seminar of this kind this year.

In my 26 years of designing career I have built home style and comfortable spaces.
I have built stylish wardrobe, personalized line of clothing for each person and built closets to host those beautiful clothes I design for them.
I have built flavorful food through my books.
The list goes on and on. With my fashion studies and an Italian degree in fashion, I made a business for several years before I became an interior designer. Today, I am bringing forward this knowledge and help women finding their best look and style in which they can feel comfortable, beautiful and powerful regardless of age. If you are:

Newly divorced and want to be seen again;
You lost or gained weight;
You are tired of the same look
You often say: “I have nothing to wear” ;
You want powerful work clothes;
You want to gain self-esteem;
You want to look good anytime, anywhere

This Workshop Is For YOU.

Lunch is included. If any of you is closer to Los Gatos, CA, I hope to see you there.

My many years of experience in design business led me to offer consultations in both fashion and interiors, so much so that I can remodel homes as well as personal images. I am passionate about colors and I encourage my clients to express their individual style in their homes and with the clothes they wear. I am the author of three books, one of which is a book on color theory:

Girl-Pink-Green-1aWelcome to my Friday Fashion episode.

I stand in front of my clothes and have no problem deciding what to wear. Everything is color coordinated and everything fits my body and the occasion.
My degree in fashion and merchandising I acquired in my twenties completely changed my life and changed the way I see clothes. I curate my clothes as I curate my clients’ homes when I design for them.

Every September and October I assess my clothes and shoes. I give away the pieces I don’t like, those items I wore to pieces, outdated clothes or clothes that don’t fit anymore. I send the rest to cleaning or restoration.
(Click on each photo to view it larger).


I shop for my clothes and accessories in peculiar places, holes in the walls sort of speak and curiosity shops, it has been my quirk since a young age. Sometimes I can find an interesting piece in the strangest places, such as ceramic shop, or a vintage shop as it happened with this blue shirt below with beautiful double lacy sleeves, which cover the hands. It was a display in a French furniture and accessories shop, propped on a mannequin and not for sale. I pestered the shop owner, it wasn’t easy, but I got it.


People in foreign countries wear different things and different colors. Travelling encourages me to learn about other cultures and study what they wear. Often I bring back home a local piece of fashion of the place I visited, never seen where I live, but only if I can mix and match it with my collection. I don’t buy just to get a souvenir and leave it in my closet, I buy only if it will go with everything I have. Needless to say, I have a photographic memory of the clothes I own.

Most of my shirts have long sleeves, which I use all year, summer and winter. Some of them can be worn with jeans or leggings in the morning and a night with a fancier skirt become a more elegant attire for theatre performance.
In the summer time I roll up the sleeves for a casual look and in the winter I wear them with long sweater or cardigans. I also buy timeless items and no one will have say a shirt is 1986 or 2016. I buy clothes good for my texture and colors and that is it.
Keeping a collection of shirts or in general good clothes is a work of dedication to ourselves. It is our responsibility to keep the body in shape and be able to fit in our collection for several years.

I want a versatile wardrobe that speaks my personality and will functions in many situations. This is the sort of things I teach in my seminars. My next seminar is Nov.13, 2016. Find your ticket here:
What about you? How versatile is your wardrobe? Ciao,
