LOREN NORTH PERSONAL STYLIST PRESENTS Striking a Balance Between Sustainability and Style
Bringing fashion, the environment and your style together so you can have a consciously confident closet.
Our clothes have a large environmental, social and economic impact. We have closets “full of nothing to wear,” but yet we keep buying clothes to create style while our clothing is polluting our water, our food supply, and our planet.
In this enlightening presentation Loren will demonstrate how sustainable principles can be merged with style concepts so you can look your best while feeling good about making better choices for the environment. Attendees will learn why shopping to improve your style is creating a closet full of overwhelm, how making good decisions for the planet also benefits your style, and what to ask yourself when evaluating your style, your closet and when shopping.
Participants will walk away having raised their consciousness and awareness around sustainability and style. They will be empowered by what they can do to make more positive impacts with their purchases and how to enjoy their clothes again by creating new outfits.
Personal fashion stylist Loren North is a former geologist who traded in her steel toed boots for high heels to pursue her passion for saving the planet by changing how we style, care and shop for our clothes. She works with women and men who are frustrated with what’s in their closets, feel like they have nothing to wear, and usually don’t like to shop or don’t have time to go shopping. After working with Loren, her clients look pulled together, feel more confident and comfortable, and dress with ease. Her company Through the Closet Door is a personal styling consultancy focused on helping professional men and women show up powerfully each day looking confident and comfortable because their style and clothes work for them.
