Summary

Currently, Patty is the Founder/CEO of the innovative company, STYLEdge® Fashion LLC. This is an image consulting company that works with professionals to match their brand with an image of power, success and results. With an extensive background in retail, fashion and style, I have an experienced perspective in business, leadership and management to boost performance, productivity and profitability. Patty has 30+ years of experience in the business world. She spent 27 years in retail as a Vice President/General Manager for Neiman Marcus, Lord & Taylor and Marshall Fields. Through this, she effectively led her teams and was a company leader in customer service, profitability and developing her teams.
A first impression is made in the blink of an eye and according to studies at Harvard, Columbia, Princeton and NYU, a judgement is made on trust and competence. Ensure that the first impression made consistently for your team is higher than the competition. According to a 2014 study at Yale published in the Journal of Experimental Psychology, individuals with appropriate attire have an increase in dominance, negotiation, job performance and profitability. Too often, leaders are indifferent or unaware of the importance of a professional image or they are unsure how to approach this when they realize that something is wrong. At STYLEdge®, we offer guides, training, presentations and individual coaching for teams to heighten their professional image and appearance. We teach our Five Modes of Attire and customize each interaction to get results that improve profitability.
Professional Experience: - Hundreds of professional clients with the majority in the financial, legal and insurance institutions - International speaker for audiences from 10 to 1000 - On air media expert highly sought after on television, radio, podcast, print and online media as an image consultant.
SPECIALTIES: Image Consultant, Public Speaker, Media OnAir Expert, Strategic Business Development, Marketing Strategist, Brand and Image Expert, Profit Management, Sales Growth, Retail Leader, Customer Service, Fashion and Trend Expert, Public Relations, Community Relations, Change Management, Business Coach, Team Development
