What people or experiences have taught you the most and helped you to arrive where you are?
All of my life experiences have shaped who I am and, thus, are manifested in my presentation of my personality. I also derive inspiration from visiting cities and absorbing the personal tastes of all the beautiful people around me.
the word "no". the phrase "she doesn't have the look" . the ignorance and refusal to accept a different form of beauty .
probably high school, at an uniformed all girls catholic school i was forced to rebel and find new ways to express myself. meeting my best friends, i embraced my freedom as an individual and began to simply not care about any rules or limitations on style, and what fashion is. I started to take risks, and let go of everything that stood in the way of my dreams.
Several people have been important to me to come the place where I am now. First of all my mother. She is endlessly creative. She taught me the basics of sewing, making flower arrangements (with which I immediately won a prize) and cooking and playing the piano. She never told me things like 'you cannot do this'. My grandmothers were very supportive as well. They cheered along the line and provided materials to work with. Later in life my husband took this role to always encourage to develop myself in any direction I felt like ( and that is a lot!).
Stacy London and Clinton Kelly's What Not to Wear on TLC has showed me time and time again how powerful a change in attitude and a change in image can be. Every time women go through the make over, they come out saying that it was more than just about looks; it was about attitude and confidence.
I want to help every woman create a happier and more powerful image and identity.
Wow...I wanted to go full forth into fashion in 2004 but I was raped and that slowed me down completely. My sister and my mother encouraged me to not let that stomp me...their encouragement finally sunk in around 2007 and I went for it in 2008. After overcoming that and creating SIDE OF STYLE I felt those mountains don't have to be moved...with strength we can climb them and keep it moving.
Everyone who sits in my chair teaches me something. That's what I love about my job - I'm learning all the time.
As I mention before, there was a men magazine named 'SOAP' I love it very much but since it's already discontinued, I can't find it anywhere, so I contact one of the editor, Thornandes james via facebook. And long story short, I became James' Assistant until now. And he taught me everything about fashion industry. If I receive some kind of award as stylist, I'll say his name as the most important person in my career.
