Vegan Fashion Philosophy

If you are a woman over 40, you are probably experiencing change: changes in your body, changes in your lifestyle, and changes that seem to resonate deep within your soul. Fashion frustrations often become more pronounced, comfort is no longer optional, and you long to reflect your essence in the clothing choices you make.

Sound familiar? This describes the majority of my clients. Women who are beginning to experience (or are in the throes of) an identity crisis and their wardrobe is not keeping up!

Now, imagine that this is all true for you, and you are vegan. Not only are you searching for a look that truly reflects who you are but the fashion world is ignoring you, or so it seems!

In the summer of 2005, my journey of self-exploration led me to adopt veganism as a commitment to a compassionate way of life. At first it struck me as a crazy idea for someone in the fashion profession. How do I dress without wool (click here to learn more about wool), silk, leather, and suede (fur has not been in my life for many, many years)? Then I did two things: I reviewed my existing wardrobe and found that, with the exception of shoes and winter coats, many of my clothes were already made of cotton, linen or manmade fibers. Secondly, I reflected on my decision to be vegan and realized that a little extra effort and diligence was worth it to be true to my values. I chose to experience it as an exciting life adventure.

Why am I sharing this with you? To let vegan women know that someone in the fashion world is listening and responding. It’s about time that all women can look good and feel good about the way they look.

You do not have to be a vegan or even over 40 to use my services. I work with each of my clients without judgment or pressure. All you need is a commitment to discovering more fully who you are and to share a deep desire to express your inner essence through the fashion and image choices you make (whatever form those take). Authenticity is the first step in expressing your true beauty. If that’s true for you, I can help you get there.

“I was a bit worried to receive a long distance color analysis from Ginger, because it was hard to trust that photos could be accurate enough for her to pick my colors. However, I’ve had experience with Ginger over the years and trust her excellence so much, and I really wanted my colors done. I have seen that on my own, sometimes I pick clothing that just isn’t quite right and then I feel like they drain the color from my face, and that feels awful. But, by myself, I kept choosing just a shade off, and not liking the results. So it was with some concern but also trust and hope that I ordered my analysis long distance.

They arrived and I love these colors! A huge range of subtle shades. I put them up against my face and instead of the color draining from my face, they pick up the best parts of me, and my face looks more alive. I had just bought a fun hat and it didn’t look quite right and I could clearly see from the colors Ginger chose that it was just a shade off, and that explained it. These subtleties really make a difference, it’s obvious. And all of that from Walgreen printed photos. Amazing! Thank you so much Ginger!”
