Don’t sleep on DC. While our nation’s capital may be the fashion capital of the world, Washington DC is home to many successful stylists. We had the privilege of inviting Alison Beshai, Kaarin Vembar, Stephany Greene and Robin Fisher to our Stylist Spotlight.
In case you missed it, here is a little re-cap of our spotlight with these four amazing ladies …
Alison is a personal shopper and fashion stylist. While she works with clients to fine-tune their individual style, Alison also contributes to local magazines and fashion websites.
After experiencing a traumatic event, Kaarin re-focused her energy into making people feel good about their body. Her company Closet Caucus excels in closet audits and personal shopping. Kaarin also merchandises local boutiques in addition to helping her clients with their personal style.
Stephany Greene spent 25 years as a fashion designer for labels such as Gap, Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren. On the side Stephany began styling and later worked for a television show that was filled with A-list celebrities. Stephany has a client list filled with politicians, a published book under her arm, and her own company.
While Robin is based in DC, her work takes her all across the country. Her expertise is in bridal fashion. She began interning at fashion companies, was an Industrial Engineer at Joe Boxer, and a shoe buyer for Hecht’s. Working in a corporate environment, allowed Robin’s style to mimic those of the executives around her. It wasn’t long before she started personal styling where she developed her own color and styling system.
Each of these woman had a different journey that led them to the same place: success. No matter where you live or where you begin, a career in fashion is possible. Where many stylists start is not where they end up. Having a passion for being a stylist gets you on the right track but getting an education and gaining work experience leads to long-term career.
