Getting to the bottom of why we only wear 20% of our closets

INSPIRING EVENTS, NYC,
The Laundress Event in Soho
It was an exciting week here for me with the Laundress event in Soho. I shared a very personal story that I don’t often reveal and the most common mistakes I see women make, closet-care wise.

Met Ball Fashion
{You or the Dress?} Where is the focus? I’ve been thinking about the gowns at the MET ball and wondering why the whole event has lost it’s luster for me. The difference between what I do and what red carpet stylists do is very simple. I showcase my clients. It’s all about them and making […]
