Jennifer Butler is the leading expert in the sociology of style and color. Her experience lies in the art of visual communication, understanding that mastery of appearance is critical to effective communication. Building on her fashion expertise, knowledge of human nature, and understanding of color, she develops style and color palettes that reveal the essence of an individual’s personality. Through her work, Jennifer helps clients ranging from CEOs and business executives to celebrities, artists, and community leaders, to powerfully, authentically, and effectively express themselves.
Jennifer built a successful 35-year consulting practice by leveraging her 10+ years in the New York fashion industry with B.A. degrees in Sociology and Art History from Wilson College in Chambersberg, Pennsylvania and the study of Spiritual Psychology at University of Santa Monica to coach nearly 7,000 clients from all walks of life.
Her love and talent for fashion began in college where demand for her exotic, handmade clothing led her to open a small boutique called “Piece of Mind.” Her design work and entrepreneurship won her the honor of being named one of Glamour magazine’s Top Ten Glamour Girls of 1969. It also led to a photo spread in Women’s Wear Daily newspaper featuring her inspirational designs.
Later, as a stylist at Vogue Patterns, Jennifer’s thoughtful approach to fashion helped extend her color and design work internationally, including collaborations with color forecaster June Roche, corporate fashion director for Milliken, one of the country's largest textile manufacturers and dye mills. Together they created a color symposium that reached more than 6,000 of the top designers in the automotive, interior, and fashion industries.
After moving to Los Angeles, Jennifer studied with leading color theorist, Suzanne Caygill, founder of four-season color harmony theory. After spending several years training with Suzanne, Jennifer used her fashion expertise and color knowledge to create Jennifer Butler Living Color, Inc. Jennifer shares her individualized approach to color and fashion nationwide as a talented speaker and educator. Her audio CD and book titled: Reinventing Your Style: Seven Strategies for Looking Dynamic, Powerful, and Inspiring can be found on Amazon.
