How would you describe what you do?
I work as a creative director for my clients, helping them to portray the best versions of themselves. We usually begin with their wardrobes but our creativity seeps into every facet of their lifestyles.
What do you love most about your job?
I love my clients, they are so interesting and kind. It feels good to help people I admire and respect look their best.
What do you dislike about your job?
I really love it all… but I guess I could leave the deskwork behind. I hate returning emails!
What was the best advice you ever received?
Put one foot in front of the other. People get so stuck trying to be perfect and freeze. I learned early on that the trick to avoiding failure was just to keep moving ahead.
What would you advise someone today?
See above. Truth.
How would you describe your personal style?
My personal style is dictated by my mantra of living everyday like a vacation. I love effortless, easy pieces with a tropical vibe and a touch of boho. You should see my caftan collection! I am an L.A. girl after all.
Is there a key piece in your closet?
My Hermès collection helps me feel put together, whether I’m shopping for a client or navigating my way through an airport.
Do people “get” your job?
People understand what “Fashion Stylist” means, but we go so above and beyond that role. Our clients get what we do the moment we start working with them.
What characteristics are required to do your job well?
Fit. Style. Patience.
What is your greatest achievement to date?
How do you define success?
I have learned money doesn’t buy happiness so I count my success as a hug from a client, and being able to go home at night, look in the mirror and feel proud of my accomplishments.
