As a Chicago native, I recently returned
to my hometown roots after 7 years in New York City. Fashion,
Beauty, and Design best describe my industry experience, beginning
with Estee Lauder Corporation (MAC
Cosmetics and Clinique), intermixed with a degree in apparel
design from FIT, and continuing as an accessories designer and
illustrator. You can find my latest designs in Nordstrom stores
across the country!
While working in New York, and traveling to and from Chicago,
I began to recognize that people in both cities often asked
for my help, not only to redesign their wardrobes, but also
to help them realize and define their personal style. Casual
afternoon shopping excursions evolved into consulting sessions,
closet evaluations, and of course...more shopping!
My clients are not only happy with their new wardrobes, but
more importantly, they feel better about their appearances,
and are more confident in their everyday lives. I discovered
a small niche and a real satisfaction in helping people unleash
their own personal styles. You might say that their coming-out
party was mine, too.
I work with men and women from all walks of life, ranging from
a foreign diplomat and enterprise software executive, to an
independent film director. Most people have an idea or vision
of their style, but many people do not know how to achieve that
look...so I help!
