Fresh Collective Style Profile – Michelle Planche

I met Michelle Planche last year when I was a judge in the Art of Fashion competition for emerging designers. Michelle is passionate about providing opportunities for designers, as am I, so we were a natural partnership.  We created a project together- a seminar called the Retailer’s Point of View and The Ultimate Holiday Dress Competition.  Michelle and I also serve on the board of Fashion Group International together.

What’s a typical day like for you? Juggling act between running a full time event production company (www.paradigmevents.com), a charity which supports emerging designers in Canada (www.artoffashion.org)

What in your life is really important to you? Making time for the people I love and being there for my friends and family as well as being passionate about my career.

What would you like to be remembered for? Being a dreamer, maximizing life, living in the moment, being a connector of amazing people and creating memorable moments.

Style Coach Notes: As a blonde, Michelle looks amazing in bold bright colours like this fuchsia.  I asked her how she would describe her style, and she said, “Classic, but with a twist” and I immediately thought Kabuki would be a good fit.  We both found this dress on the rack at the same time!  Another comfortable and stunning number.

What role does fashion play in your life? I have always being known from my family and friends as a fashionista. I love to dress up, make a statement and express who I am through clothing.
