EMMY AWARD WINNING COSTUME DESIGNER, SHELLEY KOMAROV, LAUNCHES A NEW BOOK KNOW THYSELF, AN IN-DEPTH EXPLORATION OF STYLE, FASHION AND SELF AWARENESS

FR

(LOS ANGELES, CA; MARCH 30, 2015) – Shelley Komarov, a multiple Emmy Award winner with extensive experience as a Hollywood costume designer and owner of a successful fashion line, announces Know Thyself, an in-depth exploration of style, fashion, and self awareness. Loaded with insightful advice that should help developing self-confidence in all women, regardless of their age and shape, this book brings a well-rounded and thoughtful approach to beauty.

 “With decades of working in Hollywood costume design, I strive to inspire women through my experiences,” Komarov says. “Every anecdote and tip in this book is brought with great intention, giving my readers an opportunity to relate to my struggles, while being empowered by my successes.”

Know Thyself reveals star-making secrets fostered from firsthand knowledge, and brought to readers through approachable and affordable techniques. Using methods typically practiced by a brigade of stylists, designers, and make-up and hair stylists, Komarov guides women on how to look and feel like a star without big studio budgets and teams. While containing a treasure chest of practical advice related to fashion and style, the book includes many amusing episodes from her extensive career in Hollywood. That, of course, makes the book not only extremely useful as a self-improvement tool, but also very entertaining.

 Komarov’s accolades span from her renowned pedigree in both television and film. She has won three Emmys throughout her regal career for “The Kennedy’s of Massachusetts,” “Frank Sinatra,” ‘Introducing Dorothy Dandridge,” and an Emmy nomination for “A Woman Named Jackie.”  On the big screen, Komarov’s vast creativity appeared in modern and period costumes including the contemporary “The Peacemaker” starring George Clooney and Nicole Kidman; Martha Coolidge helmed period movies “Lost in Yonkers,” “Three Wishes,” and “My Girl 2;” and Richard Linklater’s “The Newton Boys” starring Matthew McConaughey, Julianna Margulies, and Ethan Hawke.

 Shelley Komarov is a member of the Motion Picture Academy and the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. In 1993 she received the Citizen of Honor Award from Beverly Hills and is a fellow recipient of the Peter the Great medal from the St. Petersburg-Los Angeles Society, amid other honorary and professional distinctions. Komarov initiated her own fashion line during the late 1990s, which achieved an enthusiastic acceptance and is now distributed in major stores such as Nordstrom, as well in numerous U.S. and international boutiques.

 Know Thyself will be available starting April 19th on Amazon.com as a Kindle edition. To learn more about Shelley Komarov and her current fashion work, visit www.komarovinc.com or Instagram- @komarovstyle.

First Snow

Snow has started to fall in some places.  If you live in an area that undergoes all four seasons, you may be seeing the delightful white powder blanketing your home.  In Los Angeles, although we are not too far from winter snowy areas, we can never be sure whether or not we will witness much of it at all.

Those of you who live where snow is falling, don’t take it for granted! Although you may be frustrated by having to shovel or bundle up and feeling envious of our warm weather, we will be wishing we could experience the blanket of beauty a snowfall brings.

Christmas Wish Lists

It’s holiday time of year again!  Christmas is such a wonderful season. We get a chance to wear those fabulous fashion pieces we love as well as to enjoy family and friends.  There are holiday parties and gift exchanges, as well as many delicious, albeit dangerous sweets to indulge in.  Enjoy!

Q0Hck16uOdMEndrv1BNmW8vn2HQZZ_7QwZGomy0oBTAEarly December is a great time to make a Christmas wish list and to ask others you will be shopping for to do the same. These lists are not just for kids, but for anyone on your holiday shopping list.  Just think of the benefit of having a “heads up” from those special people in your life, as you look for their perfect gift.  Knowing what your family and friends would like will be a big plus as you do your shopping this year.  It will also help you to have more time to enjoy the gifts of the season that can’t be bought in stores.
