GUIDE PEOPLE THROUGH COLOR.
Aligned with the Munsell System
How humans perceive color is very different from a 2-dimensional artists color wheel. By using Munsell's cylindrical system, each paddle is notated on back with it's Munsell hue, value and chroma. From there, it's easy to cross-reference for RGB.
Organized by Neutrals & Hues
To assist you in selecting the right colors for people, the system contains portfolios of warm & cool neutrals and each hue known on the color wheel. When you're ready to embrace the Munsell system fully, you can combine Red-Orange with Red.
Beautiful Palettes Every Time
Using the system to select colors that are right for a person and her personality is super easy. Plus, our ordering system allows you to order the appropriate extra paddles for your clients or friends where they're shipped directly to you in a beautiful case.
Although I have experience in the apparel industry, I needed training on how to explain the “whys” and provide tools to my clients so that I could make the best informed decisions on selecting colors for individuals. Arden’s color system opened a whole new world of color to me. One of my biggest learnings was that no one should be put into a category of colors such as a “season” and that colors are an individual reflection based on personal coloring, personality and style. My clients feel refreshed and fulfilled to be wearing colors that enhance their personal coloring and style. They take their paddles when they shop and use them as a guide so that they only wear colors that make them look and feel their best. I feel fortunate to have been trained by Arden and to have the tools that I need as a professional fashion consultant to provide excellent personalized consults to my clients.MARIA NELSON, Fashion Consultant
My biggest challenge as a wardrobe stylist is teaching my clients the difference between what looks good on them versus what looks GREAT on them. Having the color system allows me to show my clients the difference. Providing my clients their personalized color palette allows them to shop more confidently which in turns makes for happy customer. I’m grateful for the education I received and the impact it has had on my business.NICOLE BUSCH, Wardrobe & Fashion Stylist
A Professional Color System for Folks Who Want to Look Professional
A Color for Every TypeEach paddle in the system lists the Color Type(s) associated (Animated, Clear/Sharp, Subdued, Deep, Dynamic.) Having these as a reference helps you to select the right palettes for your clients based on their personality AND coloring.
Over 900 ColorsThe system includes 155 paddles which make up 2 Neutral Portfolios and 11 Hue Portfolios (red, red-orange, orange, yellow, yellow-green, green, blue-green, blue, blue-violet, violet and red-violet.)
Based on Human ColorThe human gamut of color (CIE L*a*b*) which is a three-dimensional space, is closely aligned to the Munsell system, considered the gold standard in the world. A special Munsell chart and wheel is included with the system.
ALL THE DETAILS
Please NoteUpon ordering the system, you will receive private access to order client palettes and have them shipped directly to you or your client. The system comes in an acid-free box, is entirely hand-made and comes with instructions for use. Please allow 7-10 business days for shipment of your professional system. If delivery is outside the U.S., please add 1 additional week.
The system is based on the Munsell color notation system which breaks down each hue, value and chroma in a unique notation (read my blog article here on how it works.) Portfolios (eg fans) of colors are grouped by hue via the Munsell scale (2.5 to 10) with each paddle consisting of 5 to 6 colors of the same hue. Each paddle is organized numerically by hue, value and chroma with the unique color personalities notated to allow for easy selection of colors. This makes it effortless to work with a client in determining the right colors for his or her coloring and personality.
The master paddles are notated on the back with specific codes and guides to help you select and order for your clients. The paddles are organized into the following portfolios:
Working with Arden’s color system has not only helped me become a MUCH better stylist by understanding the power and impact of color, it has helped so many of my clients take control of their own beauty and style, which is the greatest satisfaction I could ask for!
