You’ve seen me rave before in this space about the awesome people I’ve met who are fashion entrepreneurs in our great little cobblestone corner of America, but my circle of inspiration is not just on this side of the Potomac.
I met Rosana years ago when she owned a store in D.C.; our shops opened around the same time and I was eager to see this store in the city that was all the buzz. It lived up to the hype, carrying brands that were at the time unknown, like Rag & Bone and Victoria Beckham. Rosana knew they were amazing before the rest of us knew they were amazing.
Fast forward more than a decade later and our paths crossed again with Alexandria Stylebook. We’ve been proud to have her team of stylists, DC Style Factory, as a partner since our earliest days. I always look forward reading the posts from the women at DC Style Factory; they have such unique perspectives and put things together in ways I never would have had the vision to see.
They are a talented and kind group of women who are all pros. One of my friends used Rosana’s styling services and she could not stop talking about what a great experience she had. She had not cleaned out her closet in years and struggled with getting dressed and out the door in the morning. Then the DC Style Factory team came to the rescue! They filled bags and bags of clothes that had seen better days, organized what she had, shopped a few days later to fill the holes, and put together outfits so she could get dressed with confidence and feel good about what she was wearing.
Let’s face it, when you look good you feel good and sometimes we all need help getting there.
I think this is a testament to the type person Rosana is. She attracts the best available talent because she is the best herself. A mom of three, she walks the walk when it comes to being busy, but not losing her sense of style. And in our busy city, isn’t that the aspiration for us all?
