The Art of Style: About Us

About the Art of Style:   Editor & Fashion Blogger

My background as a wardrobe mistress and costume maker in New York and Hollywood has given me a backstage viewpoint and deep knowledge of fashion.  I studied Costume Design and worked in film, television, theater, music and commercials as a stylist.

This gives me a sense of history and the deep knowledge of fashion, antiques, vintage art and culture; this continues to inform my points of view.   Living and working in Hollywood, with its unique history of glamour  influences my work as a writer and creative;  I continue to live and work in both Paris and Los Angeles.  The intersection of fashion and art, culture and its influences is more important than ever in a world where a message is shared in 134 characters.

As a 15 year old girl I peered into the windows of fashion boutiques on the Left Bank in Paris where I grew up and there were many to see:  Yves Saint Laurent,  Sonia Rykiel, Gaultier and more in the revolutionary 1970s and 1980s.

A strong story and how we connect to it will never go away and perhaps we need that now more than ever. I believe in Drama, Character, Stories and Personality.  Sometimes all of these things appear on the runway in that magical moment where a designer brings it all together.

I love that moment, and live for that true  “art of style”.
