2. How would you describe your work? How does the work you do impact consumers/environment/world?
We are the mother daughter duo behind The Style That Binds Us and we are on a mission to ensure everyone lives their most stylish & fearless life! The Style That Binds Us is a media company & consulting agency offering style & brand consulting. Our vision is to create a courageous and daring world. Our style with substance content is meant to help people understand how to use their wardrobe as a tool to achieve their personal & professional goals as well as how to control the narrative of how people perceive them.
Our styling services are a solution to any & all style issues one may have, which leads to the process of getting dressed and/or shopping in a much less stressful & more pleasant way.
Our brand consulting services help brands achieve and exceed their goals through our marketing, branding & wholesale consulting packages.

5. What are you most passionate about sharing with others at this time?
The importance of a first impression! People make many assumptions subconsciously within seconds of meeting you about who you are. Fashion is your non-verbal communication to the world of what you’re all about, and we want to ensure you’re sending the right message and not accidentally &/or unknowingly sabotaging yourself.
