That is the secret to French elegance.

As a journalist working in women's media, at a certain point I decided to apply my eye for style and my listening skills to advising fashion brands and coaching executives, opinion leaders and regular people who wanted to project a unique and authentic image of themselves.

I created a blog that was at once a style guide and an inspiration board to help people break the bonds of convention and have some fun with the way they dressed.

Fashion and I have a long history together; the entire time I was growing up, I watched my mother sewing miles of fabric as a costumer for the theater. I guess I caught the bug. If you saw my DNA, I'm sure it would look like rows and rows of books, and bolt after bolt of fabric.When my girlfriends stood in front of closets that were bursting at the seams and complained of having nothing to wear, I helped them create exciting combinations. Later, I began coaching men and women who knew nothing about fashion, and who didn't care for the most part, but who nonetheless cared about their appearance. That is how I became a personal style expert.

I have written three books with a famous photographer, which are sold all over the world, on the secrets of French style.
