“Fashion fades, only style remains the same.” – Coco Chanel
Doreen Dove – Founder & Chief Stylist
The fabric of this company has been woven over several decades of my life.
I started at Ann Taylor as a high school student and stayed through Boston College. When I joined Ann Taylor it was a family owned group of 5 stores in which the founders were commonly present. This became the foundation for my career in fashion, working with, and learning from, a family with a vision, launching my lifelong career in the fashion industry.
Throughout my career I’ve worked with a variety of clothiers and fashion retailers in various markets (men’s, women’s, teens, off-price, custom, and luxury), where I learned to meet the unique needs of each customer and honed my natural eye for quality fabrics, exceptional tailoring, and exquisite details. Most importantly, I developed the skills to identify the right clothing to enhance not only the figure, but also the state of mind, of each customer … guiding customers to find their personal style, to make them look and feel their best.
Being a lover of fashion, I admit to pining for designer brands. But through my work with a private label men’s clothier, I learned that a designer look could be achieved without a huge price tag. We offered a more cost-effective solution to the business executive seeking an alternative to the high-end labels, enabling customers to get the custom-made look, without emptying their wallets.
Working with a chain of apparel stores, I grew their nearly invisible women’s department from an after-thought into a key destination for corporate women looking to “dress for success” without spending a fortune. Using innovative approaches, we were able to offer quality women’s business wear with style details and functionality not often found in women’s business attire.
Whether you are a busy executive seeking a style update, a college senior ready to trade flip-flops for interview garb, a stay-at-home mom re-entering the workforce, or you’re simply looking to refine your image, I can help you unlock the secrets to great personal styling.
For timelessly fashionable people, clothing choices revolve around classic silhouettes, quality fabrics and impeccable fit.
I can personalize those elements for you, and give you the skills to recognize what it means to “be the best you.”
