When Carla was in her early 20s, she found her passion in color, image and design. After being introduced to the personal color concept by the founder of the color industry, Suzanne Caygill, Carla began to study with Suzanne and for the next few years became her primary assistant and teacher.
In 1981, Carla Mathis founded ColorStyle, Inc. and pioneered the development of the ColorStyle individual design analysis, known worldwide for its innovative approach to color and style. Carla also founded the ColorStyle Institute to train image consultants worldwide in her revolutionary techniques. In 1993 Carla’s work was published in her book The Triumph of Individual Style, co-authored with Helen Conner. In addition to being known as the “bible” of the image industry and used as a textbook at Cornell, the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC, and design schools accross the country, The Triumph of Individual Style, teaches how to see our bodies as works of art. Once we have identified our Body Signature – the line, shape, proportion, scale, color and texture of our bodies – we are free to express ourselves in clothing, accessories and personal environments in ways that transcend fashion and create lasting impressions of personal wholeness and incomparable style.
In 2005, Carla and her growing team launched Body Beautiful – Now The Style Core and a comprehensive system for stylists and image professionals. Through ColorStyle and now the Style Core Institute, Carla has trained the world’s top image consultants for the past 25 years and continues in this work. Style Core trained personal stylists are currently working in over 17 countries around the world.
