During those years I began to specialize in the psycho-social aspects of dress and image.

I developed the first course in the Behavioral Aspects of Clothing. Parents wanted me to do with them what I did in class for their children and that led to consulting and private classes. I was invited to write a weekly newspaper column about image, leading to a syndicated column for more than ten years. I was invited to co-author a book on pregnancy, my contribution being beauty and wardrobing—with lots of great pictures. It landed me on the Oprah talk-show.
