On today’s episode of Creative Space, we have the pleasure of speaking with fashion expert and style director of Dressing Jane, Alisa Frederico. A lover of fashion and personal style from a young age, Alisa's career in retail and fashion spans over 25 years at companies like Aldo, Scunci, and URBN. Today through Dressing Jane, Alisa has become a sought after consultant, runway emcee and on-air expert doing everything from personal shopping and closet merchandising to editorial styling.
In the conversation, we talk about the power of fashion to boost our confidence and level up our lives. We also discuss Alisa’s journey working on the corporate side of the fashion industry before launching her own venture.
