Many of us get to the spring season and are ready to revamp our wardrobes, but are unsure where to start. The task can initially seem daunting, and we may need clarification on what direction to take. That’s where Fay Leshner comes in.
"A lot of my clients feel like they are wearing the wrong things because the current trend does not look good on them or doesn't fit their body type," Fay says. "This often leads to a lot of confusion and discouragement. The solution to this is understanding the difference between style and trend."
Fay is a Brooklyn native who received her BFA from Parsons College of Fashion and began her career working under Patricia Field. A long-time Meg stylist for our photoshoots, Fay offers many consultation services that can help elevate, condense, and simplify a closet to make getting ready in the morning (or for any event) feel empowering and straightforward. Keep reading to learn more about some of the services Fay offers.
1. Cleansing Your Closet
A closet full of clothes but nothing to wear is a tale as old as time, and one that Fay hears quite a lot when working with her clients. She can help you decide what clothes to keep, what to get rid of, and what pieces may need a small alteration or a styling tweak to make them work for you.
2. Defining Your Style
Your personal style can develop and change over time, and sometimes you can feel stuck wearing old clothing styles or silhouettes that don’t feel quite right to you anymore.
"Trends are created by the industry to sell you new things and to represent the social hierarchy of a moment, whereas style is something that is created and belongs to you," Fay explains. "It is your unique combination of clothing that makes you feel the most you, and when you understand what your style is it can be very powerful."
Fay can work with you to help you define your style and discover key silhouettes, colorways, and combinations that feel best for you.
"Trends are not designed for everyone, and knowing your body and the proper fit for you is more important. This will allow you to find the brands that cater best to you."
3. Creating A Daily Uniform
Do you find yourself consistently running late because you got stuck not knowing what to wear? Do you love your clothes, but find yourself unsure of how to make them work for your day-to-day life? Fay can help you create a set of daily uniforms that you can depend on to make you feel confident and put together when you don’t have time to think about your outfit.
4. Event Styling
Fay can help you purchase or pick out an outfit to wear for any special occasion - from a date to a gala and everything in between.
