Hey there, my name is Mary. I live in the Canada’s capital, and am the proud daughter of Lebanese immigrants. I grew up in a (very) large and loving family, the eldest girl of 5 children. Culture, love, and tradition was deeply rooted in my upbringing.
My mom shared her love for fashion at a very young age, pulling looks together from the pieces she collected in Lebanon. My sisters and I would often sit on her bed as she sifted through her wardrobe and jewelry box.
When I was 16, my baby sister was too tiny to fit in anything off the shelf, having been sick during her younger years. I quickly learned to sew so that I could make a dress for her to attend a school dance. The confidence my sister gained from wearing custom fashion was my first glimpse into the power of style.
I graduated from the University of Ottawa with a strong background in Communications and Commerce, and quickly started a career in the corporate banking industry. There, I learned the hard way that in business, your wardrobe plays a significant role in how you are perceived. I decided to combine my communication and fashion knowledge to help professionals communicate with style, and never looked back.
I now work as a media personality and celebrity wardrobe stylist in Ottawa, specializing in corporate clients and capsule wardrobes. When I’m not at my day job or dressing clients, she can be seen on local television shows giving fashion and lifestyle tips.
But the most important role I play is mama to 3 incredible children, and wife (Italian hubs, hence the last name).
Looking forward to working with and getting to know you,
