You have arrived.
I LOVE, yes I said love, what I do! I thrive on the fashion pulse and spend any free moment exposing myself to as many facets of the industry as possible; to offer my clients the best and most educated service.
Before I jump ahead, please allow me to provide you with a little background. I’ve somehow been in awe of the world of fashion as far back as I can remember. Post graduation from the University of Illinois – Champaign; accompanied by my third year abroad at the University of Barcelona, where I was immersed in a European fashion dream that propelled me to the point of no return, I began. My first professional footprint was planted in the way of becoming an expertly trained and experienced custom clothier. Fast forward to my first endeavor at entrepreneurship, a womens’ shop called KELIETZA, in Sarasota, FL. After a few years in the Sunshine State, I moved back to Chicago and came on board with Kate Spade where I was nationally selected to set-up, operate and manage the first US pop-up-shop in NYC. All the while and over the last thirteen-plus years, I have been styling, creating image for and reinventing men and women locally and nationally.
I regularly attend Fashion Week in New York and Paris, trade shows and private showrooms in various markets. Study, review, edit, peruse, tune in all day and stay up late nights to stay in the know, ahead of the trends, mentally innovative and always evolving to keep the best foot forward for my discerning clientele.
While I say it lightly, it is 110% true when I say: I love the hunt. And one step past the hunt: the match. By this, I mean running in and out of shops all over the place, pulling from designers, sourcing from independents and fine tuning a look that is distinctly you. I diligently work for each client to have a wardrobe lined up, tailored personally to them, their lifestyle, their wants and their needs. My styling has a bit of an edge to it, as I love to draw out the most confident and best version of themselves; of which they might not yet see exists or has gotten lost over the years. Nothing makes me happier than seeing someone feel great about themselves and knowing I get to be part of that on a daily basis.
Style is achieved according to each individual person, personality and body type. My clients range across the board from fashion forward avant-garde to extremely conservative traditionalist and anywhere in between or above and beyond. A satisfied client who feels great about their appearance, the impression they exude, the ease of managing it and most importantly, the simplification of it, is what I strive to provide.
If this is something that sounds like a fit to you or a friend, I invite you to give me an opportunity to see if we can make a great match and begin a hopeful long lasting relationship, together. I would be honored to add another fabulous client to the family.
Thank you for your time & I look forward to hearing from you soon!
All the best,
