Dawnn Karen brings much more than simple wardrobe make-over tips.  Her work draws on her expertise in psychology and her love of fashion to offer you “styling from the inside out.”  In this event you will learn how “clothes are a mood altering substance. She will share her theories of Mood Illustration Dress (dressing to match your mood) and Mood Enhancement Dress (dressing to change your mood for the better), and how to use each one to your best advantage.
