I am recognized as a celebrity stylist, an image consultant, a style architect, but I will often refer to myself as a “Metastylist.” Metastyling involves a methodical formula for decisions, principles and functions of fashion through abstract concepts, fashion, identity, time and place.
Utilizing meditation, luxury and wellness fused with fashion to crate stylish and spiritual moments, my designs are influenced with ancient Asian philosophies, blended with contemporary style, from a culmination of years immersed in Asian culture, with a highly reputable international career in interior design. Using some of the most sought-after precious stones, my signature black diamonds, my collections awaken the spirit and give life to style.
My art as an interior designer began prior to launching my namesake jewelry label channeling my experience into gem design. The cShashona jewelry incorporates the principles for Feng Shui with Metastyling to create a fusion of unique energy. This approach I described as Metaphysical design, referring to the jewelry seeker for positive energy to wear. Since my collection was launched, these designs have been worn by a number of “A” list clients recognize the collection for glamour yet versatile, art deco inspired gems that have been infused with a spiritual vibe.
Influenced by a unique fusion for interior design, music, nature, the culinary and other creative arts, Carole has always set her imprint on the world as an iconoclast. The cShashona brand is an assemblage of fashion, wellness, and luxury. With a rich education spanning nearly two decades of living in Asia where she studied the art of Feng Shui, Carole Shashona became the first Asian-trained American woman to be given the title Grand Master—the highest honor that can be granted in the centuries-old Chinese system.
Recognized as an authority on color and fashion, Carole is the author of Feng Shui Chic, published by Simon and Schuster. By introducing “Metastyling” to a much wider audience, the book quickly became a fashion “must have.” Currently—from styling celebrities to jewelry design — cShashona’s signature approach has made her an authority in the fashion world. Her designs have been featured in Bazaar, Glamour, Elle, W, and vogue. cShashona jewelry prior exclusive to Barneys New York. The Carole Shashona Collection is “Luxury Jewelry with an Edge.”
