Faculty

We have been blessed to have the most sensational Guest Contributors for our premium program, My Year Without Clothes Shopping.

Each faculty member is successful in their own field. They bring their wisdom and experience to the weekly lessons and resources that you receive as a member of the program.

This program is a year in length for a particular reason – there’s something about a 12 month challenge that brings about real shifts in attitudes, thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

Every month of the My Year Without Clothes Shopping challenge has a fresh and fascinating theme to it, and you’ll benefit from hearing and learning from our amazing faculty as they guide us through each month:

Matthew Paroz established the eco-ethical fashion directory and blog HowBigIsYourEco.com.au in 2010 to show that sustainability can be chic. With over a decade’s experience in magazine publishing and fashion PR, Matthew wanted to challenge the notion that eco fashion is about tie-dyed tees and hemp fisherman’s pants. There are beautiful garments that do more than just look pretty: dresses that rebuild communities, tops that don’t poison a farmer’s land, jewellery that recycles resources and outfits that give a fair wage to whoever made it. Most of the designers on HowBigIsYourEco.com.au don’t promote themselves as being ‘eco’, it’s just part of what they do. Which is how it should be. HowBigIsYourEco tells their story so fashionistas can find labels with an aesthetic and values that resonate with them. Matt is faculty in Month 9.

To solve her own clothing fit issues, she developed a series of mathematical calculations based on 12 vertical (linear) measurements of her bone structure. The results produced a solution that put her clothes in balance to her body; she suddenly looked taller and thinner. To her amazement, the formula worked for all women.  Janet had discovered the missing link for a woman to look her best in her clothing – balance of garments with bone structure. The goal of Fashion Fit Formula is to help every woman fulfil her dreams. Janet is faculty in Month 9.
