The Five Empress Goddesses are my highly developed energetic system for Wellbeing. Quite simply, your body is elevated with each gem's natural vibrations. I have designed my High Collections for women to obtain their full potential with Sensuality, Confidence and Courage.
Style and Glamour often aren’t inherited, even for icons, movie stars or “ladies who lunch.” These women have developed their inner style potentials. Through my experiences, I have built a creative bridge, sharing what I’ve learned. My ballet form and the development for my arts emphasize the silhouette of bodies capturing the beauty and the form of the individual-- where glamour is prized!
We are all born with a blank canvas. This helps us to develop our own individual style persona, with expression, clothing and makeup. You really don’t want to look like every woman, clone or celebrity. You do want to create a “style” of your very own to reflect you! Below, I have listed some personalities with their signature styles to illustrate.
- Karl Langerfeld- White ponytail
- Anna Wintour- Bob and Shades
- Edith Piaff- The Little Black Dress
In the late 70s or early 80s, Elle Magazine was recognized as the “Fashion Bible.” This was the era for big hair, red lips and the prototype for Jerry Hall; she carried the bold elegance representing the sophisticated vision for style. I recall, seated in the front row with my Mom, attending the Fashion Week designer runway shows. These were often attended by fashion editors and the elegant women to honor the “Master Designers” and models as they strutted the fabulous iconic catwalk, individually constructed for each event. The fashions of these times were defined with shouldered jackets and pencil skirts, hemmed just below the knee with slits to the thighs. The rich, righteous kaleidoscope of colors of fuchsia, bright green and exaggerated graphic prints added the visual homage to each designer's signature palettes. Each show was a design fashion theatre! The sounds and scents were visionary delights, often transporting me with the dramatic sounds to an illusory world. I absorbed it all-- every single detail. For you see, this was the era for the flashy colors in fabulous clothing to have fun. After hours, we would join the jet set to dance the night away amongst the style icons of the “Fashion Revolution.”
I have amassed collections, if not volumes, about Fashion, Art and Photography. Graduated from F.I.T. for Art and Design I have been taught the intellectual exploration of how Art and Fashion have influenced each other throughout the centuries. Art and Fashion are a perfect fusion. For example the collaboration of Saint Laurent and Picasso, their historical and contemporary perspectives often intrigued me with bottomless interest. Artist Erte drew with passion, striking arabesque poses of the sophisticated women for both sculptures and prints.

Nurture Empress Characteristic- Curvy, Minimize Midsection
Nurture Empress Talisman- Tigers Eye Bracelet
Goop- Compliment Those Curves
Shine a spotlight on an hourglass figure with a body-skimming tank or a pattern-happy dress that plays with proportion (a high neck has big “my eyes are up here” energy).
Long Neck vs Short Neck
Measure the tip of your head, to your bra strap. This is known as your “Entry Room.” If you have a short entry, let’s elongate your body line with shorter earrings and a long necklace. Choose long earrings with a delicate chain, with focus on rings and bracelets.

Many years ago, I was seated with my Master in Hong Kong as he poured me tea. It overflowed...Startled, I said to my Master “It's spilling over!” To which my Master replied “Yes, Carole. If your cup is spilling over, how can I give you anything?”
