A word to the reader from author, Irenee Riter, who has just completed and published "A New Paradigm of Color and Body Analysis"

THE SCIENCE OF PERSONAL DRESS

Please don't be disappointed to find this website changed, because for the last year and a half, I have worked to update, rewrite, refine, streamline and prepare an eBook presentation for your benefit which is consistent with this new ever prevailing age of technology—eventually to be available on tablets for easy access.

The Questionnaire (inter-active color and body analysis) previously offered on this website has been such a proven success that it has been re-designed and included as part of the eBook. The positive response to the site has been far reaching in this country and in Europe throughout Italy, Russia, Germany, Romania, France, Austria, The Netherlands, Canada and even Dubai, Australia and New Zealand. 

This eBook format provides the opportunity for a coherent, logical and aesthetic flow of pages which is easy to read.   For $12.99, you may access the 290 page eBook in a secure PDF download to your personal computer from this website.  You can order through PayPal from our online store or from me personally.  The table to the right gives a brief listing of the contents.  This is the same 90 hour course taught at The Academy of Art in San Francisco for the academy's required foundation color and line class.  Students from all over the world were certified through this study, but it is applicable for every level of interest to maximize your personal style of dress or, as used by many, to assist in professional pursuits.

Based on The Law of Attraction, this work is offered for those wanting to go beyond conventional systems into a new paradigm of color and body analysis. Even though it is primarily focused on personal dress as a practical first approach, the principles ultimately apply to all art forms providing a conceptual framework from which to even further expand.

Written and illustrated in an unfolding step-by-step format, this study is considered the in-depth manual for color and line education and acts as a reference guide based on scientifically based principles—The Universal Language of Color and Line. Because these principles are sound and unchanging, they are classic in every sense and meet the criteria of on-going studies in all creative associated areas.

If you go step by step through this eBook in sequential order, the principles and concepts build upon the preceding ones for complete understanding—each part will reinforce specific connections so that all the parts come wholly together.  By the end of the study, you will have a very advanced understanding of yourself as related to this subject, and it is guaranteed to serve you throughout your life.

The book ends by summarizing "In A Nutshell" every technique and tools you need in Imagery, Modification and Details to express the 4 vibrational energies which make up the universal language of color and line.

The color and body analysis Questionnaire will finalize your expertise with beneficial results.  Most importantly, you will consciously know how to deliberately create and communicate your own style of dress and will have the tools to apply this knowledge in all artistic endeavors.



ABOUT IRENEE RITER

Irenee Riter is the color and line educator and lecturer of The Science of Personal Dress. She is the author and illustrator of sixteen products and books on color, line, and structural form of the human body. 

One of the early pioneers of color analysis, Irenee went beyond conventional four-season color methods and developed "balanced" colors-the arrangement of colors into harmonic sequence supplying the missing link colorists were looking for. She designed four progressive color programs and worked with innovative printers developing training books and tools for colorists to use throughout the country and Europe.

Early on, she was president of Colors Persona Corporation for fifteen years, designed the marketing and testing procedures for D'Saison Creative Colors in Huston, Texas, in association with the Miss America advisor.  Her experience includes working with professional photographers, progressive custom clothing manufacturer Designs On You in Missouri, and a company developing custom clothing using high-tech computer programming in Chicago. 

Irenee lectured for Ray's Institute of Design in Chicago, taught at the Classic Beauty Colleges in Arizona, taught at the College of Marin and DeAnza College in California, and for two years, was an instructor of the required color and line foundation classes for the fashion department at the Academy of Art in San Francisco.

Irenee now writes and illustrates teachings on these subjects. Other books supporting principles of The Universal Language of Color and Line include:
The Science of Personal Dress
Body Shapes and Lines
The Universal Language of FACE READING
mpeccably Sharp - What Wise Men Know…and Young Men Can LearnI

Irenee Riter is the author and creator of the Science of Personal Dress through a model of color and body analysis.
