Elements of Style

leading classes by day, setting fashion by night



douglas foulke & ann dahlgren

Equine Fit
While equestrianism focuses on the many uses of horses, Cathy Davis, a British Horse Society-trained instructor, specializes in the recreational and artistic usages. An expert in boarding, training and riding instruction, she guides both equine and human students on farms in Bedford, including Maple Grove Farm, where she was photographed. Cathy is wearing a distressed faux shearling jacket by The W Line by Worth, available through Kathleen Usherwood, Pound Ridge; antique gold rhinestone chandelier earrings from Free & Co, Katonah; Ariat Challenge boots, Tailored Sportsman Trophy Hunter breeches, a Tailored Sportsman belt, and an Essex Show shirt from The Horse Connection, Bedford.

Nice Lines
David Llanos teaches his students in the Bedford schools about all aspects of art, including how to draw in the viewer with successful composition. A painter himself, he is energized by the children he teaches and encourages them to enjoy and celebrate the process. He was photographed in Gallery Yellow at Yellow Monkey Antiques, Cross River, wearing a Massimo Alba cardigan graphite sweater, Rag & Bone charcoal scarf, Massimo Alba woven shirt, Rag & Bone brown resin denim jeans, and Billy Reid Wing Tip shoes, all from Churchills of Mount Kisco.

Perfect Part
A professional stage actress, Deborah Feinstein, taught theater arts at the Northern Westchester Center for the Arts and Cavalier Camp at the Harvey School, before founding The Actors’ Studio - Acting Classes for Young Artists in South Salem, where she encourages students to express themselves. She was photographed backstage at The Ridgefield Playhouse, wearing a Claires Collection’s silk shantung, hand-beaded gown in blush; jewelry by Silver Angel; and crystal clutch by Le Regale. All available at the Elephant’s Trunk, Mount Kisco. Hair by Sophia at Fred’s Hair Salon, Katonah. Make up by KD Studio, Katonah.

Right Pose
Along with her teaching staff, Nevine Michaan has shaped Katonah Yoga, a blend of traditional hatha yoga postures, classical Taoist Chinese theory, and meditation, into a thriving Bedford Hills-based practice over the past 30 years. Nevine was photographed in her outdoor yoga space wearing a Modern Camouflage silk scarf, The W Line by Worth, available through Kathleen Usherwood, Pound Ridge, as well as The North Face Maya jacket, Prana Richi tech t-shirt, Prana Diane yoga pant, Kamik Ellie rain boot, and carrying a Prana Eco Sticky Mat in a Barefoot Yoga cotton yoga mat bag, all available at Acadia on Main, Mount Kisco. Make up by KD Studio, Katonah.

Sweet Sounds
Stacy Brunner, piano and voice teacher extraordinaire, approaches each student as an individual, basing her teaching on the way the student learns. Stacy was dressed at the Katonah General Store in a cotton lace petal top, double lace bustier, silk chiffon black eyelashes pants, hand-made sling-back shoes, stackable rings, and green glass earrings, all One of a Kind or Limited Edition by June Goldfinger, and an imported necklace. She was photographed at Cantabile Piano Arts, Yonkers. Hair by Shannon Nitti, Andrea Caballero and Sabrina Whalen of Richard Scott Salon & Day Spa, Mount Kisco. Make up by Danny DiMella and Frankie Campbell of Kiki Boutique, Mount Kisco.
Special thanks to Luis Cajas, Frankie Macancela, Ivan Brunner.
