Mary has almost three decades of experience in all of the fashion industry, including designing, manufacturing, management, wardrobe consultation, personal and professional image consultations, as well as the preparation of future fashion professionals through her on-going work as a college professor.

Mary began as a fashion designer in Europe and then created her own activewear manufacturing and retailing enterprise, supplying upscale retailers throughout the continent.  She’s worked as a custom tailor/personal image consultant in Europe and has continued working as an image consultant and fashion stylist in Chicago and now in San Diego.

As an image consultant and fashion stylist, her mission is to use her expertise to empower people to feel confident and pursue their dreams.  She feels this way about her styling business, where she helps clients embrace their distinct personality, appearance, lifestyle and aspirations, and she feels the same can be done with FGI San Diego and the diverse group of fashion professionals and fashion businesses here.

Mary has some great things planned for FGI San Diego during her term and hopes to see many past and future members at the upcoming events.  Stay tuned to hear more about the events!

All That Glitters is Gold! Gold Tats That Is!

For anyone who’s been basking away on a tropical island all summer without WIFI, the newest craze is metallic temporary tattoos.

Of course, the queen B herself, Beyonce has been sporting them.  But when conservative Katie Holmes sports one at a New York Fashion Week party, you know thisis big!

The idea of temporarily inking your body with metallics is not new.  The earliest known information on the trend dates back to Japan in 2006.  Nobuhiko Akatsuko started inking with pure gold and it was extremely popular but the trend didn’t leave the island until Arnaud Flambeau visited.

Flambeau saw the exquisite designs that Akatsuko was doing and immediately thought of the henna tattoos popular in the Middle East.  The idea to merge the two…the asthetics of the henna tattoos but the gildedness of the gold would prove much success for him.

He opened up his first boutique at the Burj Al Arab, a 5 star hotel in United Arab Emirates.  Brides-to-be and the wives of wealthy businessmen soon flocked to him to get adorned.  He used 24 carat gold as well as platinum making the decorations a status symbol.  Very small pieces started at $50, but the prices soon rose as the market prices for gold and platinum rose as well.

Prices too steep for you but still want in on the trend?  Gold Tats offers metallic temporary tattoos at http://www.goldtats.com. ; Applied like traditional temporary tattoos, even children are in on the trend.  Lasting 2-6 days allows you to change your look as often as you change your mind without killing your checkbook!

So, get in on the trend.  Place them wherever your heart desires.  The possibilities are endless!
