Meet our fiery Brazilian image consultant Carla Snajder. She dispenses image advice to clients in both Hong Kong and Singapore, she's one of our reigning "Style Queens" in Singapore! Carla took all the training for ladies’ colour, makeup and style, then went on to learn about the theory behind men’s image – way to go!
Read on to learn 10 things you didn’t know about Carla!
Where are you from? Why did you end up in the country you're in now?
I am from Sao Paulo, Brazil. I left over a decade ago to study in London, where I met my husband, whom I followed around the world to support his career. When we moved to Hong Kong, I established my own business, CARLA Personal Styling - we recently expanded into Singapore.
(i.e. they really loved their new colours or style)
I think the best was when I was able to offer a fresh perspective on a well-know, and already very well-dressed, socialite's wardrobe.
I used pieces that she already had in her wardrobe to create fresh new looks for her numerous social engagements.
Although I have to keep this our little secret, I can’t stop beaming with pride every time she receives a compliment on her fabulous new style!
My favourite type of consultation is my signature SORT SHOP STYLE & SHOOT, which involves wardrobe editing, personal shopping, styling and a photo-shoot. I love seeing my clients’ style evolve through each of the steps.
What is your favourite colour?
People who know me often say that I wear a lot of green. Green is my black!
How would you describe your own personal style?
Understated sophistication. Sexy but always classy and elegant.
Who is your celebrity style icon?
I love Sophia Loren’s timeless style… I can relate to her body shape and colouring. She has a very alluring personal style.
How do you keep up with the trends?
I don’t follow trends. I prefer to invest in timeless pieces, which I keep updated by mixing and matching with modern accessories.
If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
Singapore, where I live now. Business is booming here and I would love to settle in this amazing country!
Where are your favourite places to go shopping?
In Singapore, I love shopping at Club 21, the new Robinsons Orchard, where I can use their amazing VIP Lounge, and the spacious boutiques at Marina Bay Sands Shoppes, some of which offer our clients private shopping sessions with closed doors for the utmost privacy and comfort.
In Hong Kong, I usually shop at Joyce, On Pedder and Harvey Nichols.
What do you like best about your job?
The best part of my job is seeing how confident and refreshed my clients look after a consultation with me.
Do you have any fashionable words of wisdom to share?
“Your clothing should be purposeful. Each detail has to have a purpose”
How has being a part of the Colour Me Beautiful team helped you?
