What I Learned from Tameka Raymond’s Style Theory Tour Thursday 22 January, 2015

Celebrity wardrobe stylist and business maven Tameka Raymond, along with a team of top style and beauty insiders, focused on inner- and outer-beauty during Atlanta’s Style Theory Tour, a fun, interactive, empowering workshop aimed at identifying and enhancing your best self. The 1-day workshop tour launched in Atlanta on January 17, 2015 at the Hyatt Atlanta Midtown, and brought together aspiring creative professionals and everyday women and men for a day filled with learning from some of the industry’s top Style and Beauty experts. Tameka Raymond is best known for being the ex-wife to mega-singer, Usher Raymond, but she has always been a fashion powerhouse in her own right.

Ms. Raymond gathered a team of stellar beauty and style professionals whose accomplishments are as impressive and expansive as their resumes. Guests enjoyed a day of knowledge and experiences including industry tips and tricks, best practices and developing trends in hair, makeup and wardrobe styling to arm attendees with the tools to make them and their clients the “total package.” Notable stylists and attendees included Nyssa Green (Emmy-award winning Makeup Artist/The Green Room Agency), Ashunta Sheriff (Celebrity Makeup Artist – Rihanna, Taraji P. Henson, Ashley Simpson), Terrence Davidson (Celebrity Hairstylist – Nicki Minaj, Jennifer Hudson, Tyra Banks), Paulette “Poppy” Robinson (Celebrity Hairstylist), Sarah Bentley Pearson (Wardrobe Stylist/Blogger), Kenny Burns (Revolt TV/Blue Flame Agency) and Christina Johnson (VH1’s Atlanta Exes).

What I Learned Fashion Wise From Tameka

Key Pieces for Any Wardrobe

Build your wardrobe with lots of solids and mix in a few prints

Too much coordination is bad (layering designer labels)

Too much color matching is also bad (unless its a monochromatic look)

Save money on high end designer brands by shopping styles out of season or consignment shops

Mix your fashion with high designers and lower end brands. Don’t feel you have to dress designer with all of your apparel.

I will be honest, I knew of only Tameka as the reality show cast member and of course Usher’s ex-wife. There is so many things in the tabloids about her and I just want to say I was able to change my perspective from what I’ve heard. She was the stylist to a lot of pop stars and she is very articulate about her fashion. I was impressed with what she taught on the tour, she was very personable, down to earth and I definitely learned more fashion etiquette and style tips from this session. I tell you all constantly, I am not a fashion blogger at all – but I am willing to learn. I am definitely taking her tips and going to apply it to my life. I want to build on my wardrobe this year and mature my style and getting an expert’s perspective really enlightened me.

I am happy I was able to attend the Style Theory Tour to learn about beauty, hair and fashion while also getting to know Tameka outside of a media perspective. It’s a great series and she is also going to more cities check out the list below.
