Dr. Brothers’ expertise was far-reaching, particularly as it related to women’s lives. In the 1960s through 1980s, this meant that she was involved in the world of fashion and design. She was a hired consultant for interior manufacturing companies such as Magee Carpet Company. Her show, Living Easy with Dr. Joyce Brothers, was produced and sponsored by Trevira fabric. She offered advice on creating a calm environment through colors and the psychology of how one dresses, and joined the Garanimals marketing team to help promote self-image and choice for children. Some of her cameos, including her appearance in Troop Beverly Hills, involved her in a fashion show or discussing fashion.
