The Learning Curve Podcast - THE Podcast for Women Entrepreneurs in the Middle East.
How many of you out there feel disconnected with the styles and fashions that you see on the run way? How many of you look at it and think, 'I could never wear that!'. Well my next guest, Antoinette Chorlton wants you to see how runway wear can be 'real wear'. She wants to help women reconnect with their love of fashion and style.
From a young age her dad indulged everything 'fashion'. She shopped with him, got creative and really connected with her style and what would become, 'Antoinette'. But as her working age got closer her dad wanted her to have a proper career and not go down the fashion route.
But Antoinette is a savvy, hard working and positive person, skills her father engrained in her. She did follow her dad's advise but her love of fashion remained. Today she is an international fashion stylist and the is the founder of 'Glamour on the Go', a style agency focused on fashion events and style presentations. She is also the co-founder of Moda Africa - an international fashion agency introducing and representing African Fashion Designers globally. And the founder of her newest endeavour - Shop My Closet. A fashion event for high end & designer pre-loved clothes.
A mum, wife, daughter, & thriving business owner, she is a making 'Glamour' easier to connect with and helping women find their own 'fashionista'. In this very open and sometimes 'laugh out loud' comical conversation, Antoinette shares her journey with us from her childhood to how she envisions 'Shop My Closet' being a household name in the Middle East. - Listen Now
