Stylist Spotlight

Alisha Expert Stylist - CEO: Founder of Stylewise
  • Where are you from, and how does that influence your style?
    I am from Boston, Massachusetts. Hip hop and pop rock culture played a big role in fashion during the time I was growing up there. We wore baggy clothes (TLC and Aaliyah) and bright colors or wacky prints (Madonna and Kris Kross ). I also scrounge through my fashion magazines, emulating anything and everything that I could with scissors and dye. I expressed my style by being creative with my clothes and improvising! A lot of D.I.Y. !!

John Expert Stylist
  • Where are you from, and how does that influence your style?
    In Spain, where I was born, people care about their appearance and will try to put a look together even to go buy groceries. I grew up in an environment where we dedicated time every day to looking our best, even if it is just a few minutes. I remember as a child, seeing my mom coordinating colors, styles and accessories in her wardrobe, always looking impeccable. Even my dad has a great sense of style. I guess growing up in that kind of environment got fashion into my blood.

Monica CEO by Nature, Stylist by Choice
  • Where are you from, and how does that influence your style?
    I was born and raised in Argentina. I definitely feel there has been an influence on my style from time spent in Buenos Aires - the city culture feels like a true mix of that in New York and Paris with one-of-a-kind styles and constantly evolving trends. After moving to NYC and spending time at 5th Avenue fashion house, Burberry, my style shifted with a new appreciation for detail in luxury design.

Nathaniel Expert Stylist
  • Where are you from, and how does that influence your style?
    I am from the Dominican Republic, but I grew up in uptown NYC (WAY UPTOWN). In my culture, women are known for their femininity and for never leaving the house without assuring that they look sexy. Yes, the sexy young looking appeal is very important for the Dominican women. I grew up with my mother and her four sisters; and I always noticed how as they aged, they tried to appeal younger by remaining sexy and confident.

    I was born and raised in Italy. My passion for the fashion and beauty industries started when I was 11 years old; I helped my parents sell clothes during the summer. My style is very much influenced by my childhood in Italy, as well as my time spent in London. For years I have experienced culture from all over the world. I was an expert styling advisor at Harrods, which is known for its great customer service and their personal shopping-assistance program.

  • Where are you from, and how does that influence your style?
    I'm from Athens, Greece. I feel very lucky in that I was raised in a big city with so many different characters from whom my style influence comes. Big cities have always fascinated me and that fascination is the main reason I made my way to NYC.

Sara Expert Stylist
  • Where are you from and how does that influence your style?
    I'm from a small town outside of Oslo, Norway. Growing up in a small town has influenced my style in many ways. First of all, since ¾ of the year is kind of chilly I've had to combine fashion with comfort, since I absolutely hate being cold. I have developed a love for fur – fur scarves, fur coats, fur vests - you name it! There are many things I don't like about the fur industry, but faux fur can be just as nice and warm! Although summer is my favorite season, when fall comes I am always looking forward to layer up and pull my scarves, ponchos, coats, and furs out of my closet. Secondly, the people in Norway are not the most extravagant and forward people, and that reflects on our style. Compared to other cultures, we like basic colors and high quality clothing, which I believe, has had some influence on the minimalistic and classic style I find myself most comfortable in.

Bianca Expert Stylist
  • Where are you from, and how does that influence your style?
    I was born and raised in Romania, an Eastern-European country with high expectations from their young generation at the time. Our parents used to dress up all the time and shabby, baggy attire was not very welcome. I was that adolescent who refused to conform to a very dressy society. Instead, I always picked jeans or extremely short skirts and biker jackets. My sister on the other hand was so classy, so Audrey Hepburn, so feminine. She was the first person to put me in a pretty dress and I quite enjoyed it. The real change happened when I came to NYC and met the ModaBox team. Since I came with just a suitcase I went thru a serious wardrobe update that perfectly matched my personally.

Oana Behind The Scenes
  • Where are you from, and how does that influence your style?
    I was born in a small town in Romania where people didn't pay attention to clothing as a means of individuality. Everyone wore the same thing, boys and girls. When I was a teenager I moved to Bucharest where the international influence was evident in how people dressed. I think that was the point in time when I really began to appreciate clothing as a way to express my personality.
