A jellyfish's handshake is simultaneously weak and poisonous, which is why they seldom make good first impressions. Avoid the jellyfish effect by donning new duds with today's Groupon: for $135, you get admission to a weekend fashion workshop with celebrity stylist Faranak at Restyle Today in North Vancouver (a $275 value).
Faranak’s two-day weekend styling workshop at Restyle Today provides a crash course in women's fashion while enhancing students' styling confidence and familiarity with current trends. Groups meet on Saturday for three hours' worth of instruction on the art of wardrobe overhaul, with Faranak imparting lessons in applied fashion basics and how to organize closets to produce well-informed, consistently chic ensembles. Faranak also grants each attendee a makeup and hairstyle analysis, bestowing the same image-augmenting tips she’s given to celebrities and top-rated rodeo clowns. Sunday sessions summon students to one of the city’s top fashion districts—to be revealed at Saturday's workshop—for a two- to three-hour guided shopping excursion. Capped at five to seven students, the course allows for close, individualized attention and personalized souvenir limericks.
