What advice would you offer to women just starting out?

Follow your dreams and be willing to take risks. It’s not easy to step out of your comfort zone but there’s nothing more gratifying than pursuing a field you love and are passionate about. If you work hard, anything is possible.

What qualities do you think a successful stylist should have?
Stylists need to be on the lookout for new trends and also able to understand the clients’ lifestyle and body type. Not every fashion trend works for everyone. It’s important to have a good eye and be an excellent listener. Over the last 16 years, the retail landscape has changed drastically as e-commerce has emerged and grown. Individualized service is becoming increasingly important in the retail industry. That’s what we offer every day. It has been our secret to success and it’s what keeps our clients coming back.
