& The Value of Personal Styling Services
If you've ever thought about hiring a personal stylist, or even wonder what they do, you'll enjoy meeting top DC stylist Lani Inlander and getting the inside story on styling.
Before there was even a term for it, Lani knew that she would be a personal stylist. From Skokie to NYC and Washington, DC, our conversation covers the emergence of the business of styling in the '90s, the building of her own business, Real Life Style, and the transformational value of the service. I have seen and admire the change in her clients' style and presence, and the work that goes into fostering those changes.
"People literally avoid life when they don't have the correct, appropriate attire, and they don't even know they are doing it . . . We have seen it so many times, the opportunities that come people's way - it's not that they weren't there before, it's that (people) are afraid to embrace life or go after their (opportunities) because they don't have the right clothing or feel the part until they work with us."
Styling as a business requires generosity of spirit. Lani has it in abundance and finds deep satisfaction in her family's thriving, her clients' successes, and managing a growing enterprise.
